Online Project Management

Posted on: No Comments

EVM are pleased to announce the launch of an online project management facility for regular clients offering comprehensive real time project updates for multiple sites and projects. The new fully secure online facility enables client teams to share and monitor individual projects across multiple sites, providing detailed information including surveys, proposals, quotations, prices and work progress all linked to instant messaging, calendar and e-mail.

Project information can be accessed through a wide range of Internet connected devices including desk top computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones, meaning you can have access to your project information almost anywhere and at any time so long as you have an Internet connection.

The system is already helping several EVM clients by saving time and ensuring complex projects are managed with the minimum of fuss.

EVM are proud to announce that we are now accredited for ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 14001 (Environmental) standards. The standards were awarded by BSI (The British Standards Institution), a world leader in business and system improvement. These awards will have a positive effect on how we operate as a business and on our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.

The ISO 9001 award deals mainly with quality and the issues of having a successful quality management system in place. To gain the award we had to prove that the quality of our products and services met the required standard consistently. The ISO award is a reassurance to our customers that our work is consistently monitored to meet the high standards they require at all times. Our quality system also ensures that our suppliers meet the same high standards, enabling us to deliver our products and services on time, right first time.

The ISO 14001 award helps to control our impact on the environment allowing us to systematically reduce waste and energy as well as exploring alternative materials and processes that are beneficial to our customers and their businesses in helping to reduce the impact their operations have on the environment.

With a policy of continuous improvement, the next milestone for EVM is to achieve accreditation to the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) and ISO 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety) in the first half of 2012. We will keep you posted …


What is Visual Marketing?

Posted on: No Comments

We at EVM brand ourselves as a visual marketing company (clues in the name!); we thought it would be best to explain just exactly what we mean by this and have produced this blog post to help get to grips with the key principles.

Visual marketing is essentially marketing techniques that promote a message using visual media and are required to promote and sell a product or service. Visual marketing can be used effectively to deliver your message to your target audience and is engrained into all your marketing activities.

These techniques are most commonly used in creating brand awareness by major organisations through a logo, based on a memorable and appropriate design, used to stick in the consumers mind. Some famous examples can be shown with McDonalds and their golden arches, the Nike Swoosh and the Apple logo. These visual messages help to produce high brand awareness, which leads to high market penetration, customer loyalty and increased sales. With ever increasing competition in markets it is becoming increasingly important to get your visual marketing correct!

Using visual marketing to help with building brand identity can be done through a number of different ways – it appears through your company logo, signage, vehicle graphics, reception areas, exhibition stands and many other visual cues. These materials must create an image that is unique, appropriate, consistent, professional, and persuasive in order to have the biggest impact.

Any organisation can benefit from having an effective visual marketing offering that can help to increase awareness; it doesn’t matter what industry you are in, if you are a small shop, large public sector organisation or an international property development company, having the correct strategy for your visual marketing can bring excellent return on investment. This can be implemented professionally and in an intelligent way, through a variety of different channels as discussed above and can fit into every aspect of your marketing. Get involved now and see what kind of improvements it can make to your business.
