Improving performance in industry

At Sysmax, our experience in project, risk, and engineering management has enabled us to develop a comprehensive suite of products that help our clients evaluate competency, improve performance, and deliver compliance across their business.

Launched in 2000 by CEO Peter McAteer, our team of highly experienced practitioners and process specialists have worked hand-in-glove with some of the world's most influential businesses. Clients include PepsiCo, Shell, BP, Talisman and Premier. Trusted by some of the world's largest companies, Sysmax enables them to understand the reality of their day-to-day compliance with core processes. We help them to test and ensure the skills and ability and understanding of their workforce, and to offer stakeholders assurance around compliance with best practice and sector-recognised standards. We do that with a clarity that drives continuous improvement across their business.

Sysmax was originally part of a multi-disciplinary firm supporting businesses in nuclear, the military, construction, rail, and water sectors. More recently, our focus has been on supporting clients in the oil and gas sector. This cross-sector experience means our systems and processes are easily adapted to many other industry sectors such as health, pharmaceutical, construction, utilities, transport, automotive and aviation.

Sysmax has achieved ISO27001 certification - This means that in a world of increasing cyber threats our client data is secured through an Information Security Management System that has been certified by the British Standards Institute (BSI). 

If your enterprise relies on business, process, or safety-critical team members to achieve the highest standards, then Sysmax is for you. Sysmax products evaluate, test and benchmark employee competency and compliance.
