Centerprise InternationalEstablished in 1983, Centerprise International, part of the Centerprise International Holdings group, has an established strong reputation as one of the UK’s most respected IT providers. Centerprise has longstanding relationships as a key supplier of IT services to the Ministry of Defence and other areas of the public sector, including education and emergency services, where a commitment to the highest standards of business process is key to the relationships.

Currently, Centerprise certifications include: ISO 9001:2015; ISO 10002:2014; ISO 14001:2015; ISO 20000-1:2011; ISO 22301:2012; ISO 27001:2013 and OHSAS 18001:2007

Chris Hunt, Group Health and Safety and Quality Manager for Centerprise International, is responsible for managing Centerprise’s quality and business management commitments.

Following relationships with previous certification providers Centerprise International first engaged with Alcumus ISOQAR in 2007.

Chris says: “The core benefits of having ISO certifications is being able to show that:

  • Our staff have a clear understanding of the purpose of their work.

  • The processes they follow form part of a wider strategy to ensure work is repeatable to a high standard.

  • It allows us to compete with Tier 1 Suppliers by demonstrating that we are working to Best Practice Ideologies. and that our products and services are audited to a high standard.

  • The Management has set core objectives for the company to succeed to.

“Our complex business needs were one of the main reasons we initially began to work with ISOQAR - previously audits were disjointed and longer than needed due to the complexities of working with multiple bodies. However now that we are working closer with Alcumus ISOQAR, our chosen certification body, this process has been simplified.

“The relationship with Alcumus ISOQAR has been a positive experience, with professionalism and a competitive and consistent offering being at the core of the benefits that they bring our business. I am confident that they can continue to assist us as we continue to grow the Centerprise group and respective offerings to the market.”
