Many organisations who have adopted multiple compliance standards are unfortunately still running them as separate 'standalone' systems.
This is a big mistake - not only does it over-complicate matters, it also adds a huge amount of unnecessary cost and effort.
"Mango has allowed us to streamline health, safety, environmental and quality management"
Gillian Watson, HSEQ Advisor - JBW Building Services
Integration means you save time and effort managing your systems, i.e. only one management review, combined internal audits, single database of incidents, one manual, etc. – the list goes on.
Unlike most compliance software solutions, which only deal with a single standard, Mango has been designed and developed to manage multiple standards working as one integrated system.

All industries around the world have regulations, standards, legislation and codes of practice which they must meet. For individual organisations, this means regularly being audited against these compliance requirements.
And whilst the aim of each compliance programme is different (for example, some seek to protect the health and safety of employees while others aim to minimise harm to the environment), at their core they are all about:
Not only are the core aims of compliance programmes the same, the way they work is the same, too.
All compliance programmes demand that organisations:
In other words, all compliance programmes demand that you “say it, do it and then prove it”.
ISO 9001 is the foundation compliance standard. It’s the template upon which all other compliance programmes have been modelled.
ISO 9001 standards are often called Quality Management Systems (QMS). In many minds this puts ISO at an elite level and implies a certain degree of difficulty.
But it’s nothing lofty at all - just erase the word "quality" and think of ISO simply as a management system. In other words, the ISO standard is a structure that any organisation can use to manage its activities.
At Mango we took the ISO template and used it to create the workflows for Mango.
Mango makes compliance simple - workflows have been designed not to cloud or make the process of compliance difficult. In fact, every time an action is performed, compliance is being demonstrated. In addition, the user’s interaction with the system is simple – all complexity is handled by the software.
With Mango, the “say it, do it, prove it” maxim is taken care of, for any and all of the compliance programmes an organisation must adhere to.
