Lincolnwood, IL, USA – 62 organizations will be recognized at ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America 2010 for achieving CIMS/ CIMS-GB certification. Among the 62 organizations to be recognized are 49 companies who are either newly certified or have achieved recertification and 13 companies who have added the CIMS-GB designation to their existing certification.

These companies will be recognized prior to football legend Joe Theismann’s general session, Wednesday, November 10, at 8:45 a.m. during the ISSA/INTERCLEAN tradeshow and ISSA Educational Conference, which takes place November 9-12 in Orlando, FL.

“CIMS continues to set the industry standard, and companies are increasingly seeing the management, operational and sustainability benefits associated with certification,” says ISSA Director of Facility Service Programs Dan Wagner. “In just three years, the program has grown to more than 80 total companies certified and an increasing number of facilities are requiring their providers be CIMS certified.”

CIMS applies to management, operations, and performance systems. Compliance demonstrates that an organization is structured to deliver consistent, quality services designed to meet the customer’s needs and expectations. It sets forth processes, procedures, and supporting documentation proven to be characteristic of customer-driven organizations. Given that CIMS is non-prescriptive, each organization has the flexibility to choose the most effective ways in which to meet its requirements.

The CIMS-GB dimension focuses on the delivery of environmentally preferable cleaning service and offers organizations a certification that is closely tailored to provide customers with precisely what they need to secure points under the LEED-EB: O&M rating system while greening operations overall.
