Mark 1 Business Systems – March update

March update - Didsbury Park with blue sky, sun and blossom on trees and people sat on the grass

Welcome to our monthly update…

It’s been lovely to have been able to say goodbye to March and welcome in April with some fabulous weather this week. It really does feel like spring is here as you can see from cover photo taken by our Office Manager, Adelaide earlier this week. After having an extremely busy January and February in terms of ISO Consultancy hours, March was slightly slower in this respect. This meant we were all able to turn our attention on our internal business projects and objectives and we’ve actually been busier than ever in the background.

Spring is a time for…

The Titan System

As some of you may know, we are in the process of updating our ISO management System, Titan and we have now moved onto the beta testing phase. The changes will mean that not only will Titan retain its usability, but its bespoke functionality specific to ISO management will be enhanced AND it will have an updated ‘look’ and feel. As we move further into 2021, having a paperless, cloud-based way to manage your ISO systems, is becoming the new norm and we’ve found that many are seeing it as a necessity rather than a preference for efficiency.

The GC Business Growth Hub

During March, the team was able to take advantage of the services offered by the GC Business Growth Hub. The GC Business Growth Hub support businesses in Greater Manchester, at all stages of their growth journey offering expert one-to-one and peer-to-peer business support, events, specialist programmes and funding opportunities amongst other services. We’ve had some invaluable advice from them so far, attended numerous online events and peer to peer networking opportunities and have been able to take up some of the training courses on offer. All of this has been funded, and so far, has proved to be a brilliant resource for our company to utilise and we hope to continue our relationship with them well into the future.

Marketing Graduate

After an 8 week placement with us, we sadly said goodbye to our marketing graduate Jasleen Phull at the end of March. Jasleen was able to give us a fresh prospective and assist us with preparations for the re-launch of the Titan system. Here is what Jasleen had to say about working with us…

“ I had an amazing opportunity to work with Mark 1, a business management company who specialise in ISO standards and help businesses to achieve ISO certification… 

…I expanded my organisational skills through using Microsoft Teams to schedule meetings and using the Planner feature to map out tasks I needed to do, as well as look for what tasks were assigned to me. It enabled me to break down notes into easily obtainable targets which could be worked upon by me and my colleagues… 

In comparison to what I knew at the beginning of this experience ‘til now, I have learnt so much about social media and how it’s managed within a small company…”

As well giving us some insight into how we wanted to progress with our marketing strategy, we also had the experience of introducing someone into the team in an entirely remote capacity. Jasleen was based in London, so we were unfortunately unable to meet her in person, but this really gave us the opportunity to explore the real potentials of remote working and collaboration. As this all went extremely smoothly, we will use this experience to inform us on the remote management of the Titan Partner Program moving forwards.

If anything in the March update has been of interest and you’d like some further information, please contact 0161 359 4329 or email info@mark1systems.com and we’ll be happy to help.

Thanks for reading our March update and we wish everyone all the best over the next month.
