ILS provider helps businesses ensure project success with guide launch

A leading provider of Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) services is offering a helping hand to businesses across the utilities sector wanting to ensure the future viability of their projects, by outlining some of the fundamental questions to ask before appointing a supplier.

With more and more organisations aware of the critical need to minimise risk, avert over-budgeting, and mitigate project delay, the industry has seen a significant increase in the number of providers offering such services.  To make the decision process a little less challenging, Telford-based Quorum Logistic Support Limited has put together a downloadable guide outlining the ‘Seven Key Questions to Ask your Potential ILS Partner’ as a way of helping firms find the right support for their business.

ILS (or Supportability Engineering) is a discipline originally adopted by the military, but due to its proven ability to effectively manage and minimise risk, and its fundamental role in project performance, it has become increasingly utilised across many other industries – from renewable energy and nuclear to rail and healthcare.

Trevor Hirst, Operations Director at Quorum, said: “Many businesses may not know what to look for when selecting an ILS partner and it can be both a time-consuming and confusing process – which is why it’s crucial to ask relevant questions beforehand. A good firm should never be afraid of answering any questions that you may have, and by asking the right ones, you’ll be able to get an insight into the way they work, the scope of their offering, and the skills and expertise they have.”

The free guide is available to download in a user-friendly PDF format from Quorum’s website here.
