ISO9001:2015 – guarantees a competitive edge
ISO9001:2015 is the international benchmark for quality. Recognised throughout the world as defining the culture and values of a company, it sends a clear message to your suppliers that your company has a structured approach to process management. When tendering for large contracts in both the public and private sector, ISO9001:2015 certification ensures that you won’t be thrown on the reject pile at the first sift. It guarantees a competitive edge.
Quality – it’s not just for the big companies
There are many reasons why a company wants to achieve and maintain ISO9001. We have clients with over 40 million pounds in turnover where it’s an essential requirement for their business, however ISO9001:2015 isn’t just for large companies or the service industry. We have clients with just a handful of employees who have recognised that ISO9001 would provide the structure in which they could build their business management process. ISO9001 provides a measurable baseline from which you can develop and grow your company.
Process mapping for future development
Quality systems don’t just mean achieving the ISO9001 standard. One of the long-term goals of many companies is to achieve the standard, but they don’t have the resources or the immediate need. Process mapping can help to establish clear, workable procedures in a framework that can be developed into ISO9001 when the time is right. There are other standards too, such as the Business Excellence Model, Balanced Scorecard and Six Sigma that provide a measurable, quality framework.
Improving your customer and supplier communication
Having a quality management system isn’t just about a tick-in-the-box. It improves customer and supplier communication; it ensures that staff are engaged in the whole process; it reduces mistakes; it makes training of new staff easier; it provides the route to continuous improvement and business excellence; it provides the framework for the ever increasing need to manage processes – whether it’s supplier selection or disaster planning procedures, it also provides a hook so that the procedures hang together logically.
Tailor made solutions for your company
We don’t just help you to achieve ISO9001; we offer ongoing support through internal audit, second party audit, continuous improvement and training. We don’t believe that one-size-fits all.
