March 11th, 2013.
A day much like any other for most, but a day unlike any other for us. With the arrival of this day comes a mix of emotions for our entire team.
On the one hand, it is time to say goodbye to the name Global Medical Services (GMS) and the familiar heart rhythm logo to which we have grown so accustomed over the years. No longer will the GMS name and logo adorn our employee manuals, our educational handouts, or any other documents that our team produces. Indeed, the final paramedic daily report with a golden oval has been completed, reviewed, and filed for safe keeping.
On the other hand, we have cause for emphatic celebration! We are blessed with an incredibly rare opportunity to breathe life into a fresh new brand identity. But not just any brand identity – one into which we have poured our hearts and souls to develop over the past year and a half. One that we feel perfectly reflects who we are and what we represent. And, best of all, we have the chance to shape this new brand with the very same people that have made Global such a success.
So, while it is not easy saying goodbye to the GMS name which has served us so well over the years, we will forever be grateful for the memories and successes realized under it. And, as we look forward, we enthusiastically embrace a bright future under the Iridia Medical banner.
- The Iridia Medical name and logo, as pictured in this blog, will feature prominently on everything our team produces.
- Enabling Peace of Mind is our new company tagline.
- We also have four new divisional taglines: We have a snazzy new website at www.iridiamedical.com that is filled with fresh new content, has an intuitive and easy-to-use interface, and allows for online purchasing of AED accessories and course registration.
- Tools to Save Lives (Products),
- The Right Care at the Right Time (Paramedics),
- Facilitating Practical Healthcare Solutions (Consulting), and
- Empowering People to Save Lives (Education).
- Our Social Media accounts have been given a facelift. View these on the the menu to the right.
Beyond today, the year ahead will be exciting and frenetic as we write the first of many chapters in the story of the Iridia Medical brand. There are vehicles to be branded, divisional launch promotions/events to be held, and a great many more things to come. Stay tuned!
As we embark on this new journey, we invite you take it with us. Please let us know how we are doing. If any of our team members or a product/service we provide has made a difference to you, we’d love to hear from you.
