Advanced Maintenance Solutions, LLC® Achieves both CIMS Certification and CIMS-Green Building, both with Honors

AMS joins an elite handful of cleaning organizations to certify to the ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS).

Published Thursday, August 3, 2017

ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, announced today that Advanced Maintenance Solutions, LLC® has been awarded both the ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and CIMS Green Building (CIMS-GB) certifications, both with honors.

ISSA has created the CIMS and CIMS-GB certification as the most recognizable industry stamp-of-approval to identify cleaning service providers who are true companies of excellence and committed to customer satisfaction. CIMS certification is a rigorous program that sets a new "standard" of excellence for building service contractors. CIMS provides industry-recognized, third-party analysis and validation of an organization's achievement regarding quality and process improvement. The standard is strongly supported by the International Facility Management Association (IFMA).

The Green Building certification of CIMS (CIMS-GB) focuses on the delivery of an environmentally-preferable and sustainable cleaning service. This certification complies with many criteria of the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED-EBOM) Green Building Rating System, while greening operations overall.

As one of only a select group of CIMS certified organizations worldwide, this achievement sets AMS apart in their commitment to: quality and service excellence, efficient and sustainable operations and cost-effective solutions. CIMS certification is required in many cleaning service bid specifications as customers look for an effective way to identify high-quality providers that are committed to customer satisfaction.

“We are thrilled to have been awarded full CIMS certification, it truly validates everything we’ve worked so hard to accomplish.” says Christine Schad, President and Founder, AMS, “Any organization can claim that they are dedicated to quality and customer satisfaction, but AMS is now positioned to show that an independent, accredited assessor has reviewed our organization’s management and operations systems and verified compliance.”
