The Awards & Certification Management Process

AIMS is built from a typical set of core processes and is usually tailored to meet the needs of a specific client. The standard AIMS process consists of several steps, for example:

  • Your organisation offers an industry accreditation, certification or award
  • Client submits an application to be assessed for the award
  • Client application is approved
  • Client makes a submission to be assessed for the award
  • After quality checks, an assessor assigned to review the submission
  • Assessor completes a report and/or scoring sheet
  • Submission and report are reviewed by approving body
  • Award is granted / declined depending on judgement
  • Client re-applies for next cycle

Traditional Approach

Typical approaches to management of awards processes consist of:

  • Paper or emailed submissions
  • Word templates for reports, submissions etc
  • Spreadsheet for process tracking
  • Phone & Email for communications
  • Offline Application and Payment Processing
  • Boxes of Submissions and Reports
  • Mountains of photocopies for evaluators / assessors
  • Data retention obligations (5/6 years)

  • Challenge coordinating remote clients and assessment team.
