ISO International Standards are used by businesses to improve their management systems to help them to:

  • Reduce waste and costs
  • Reduce risks
  • Support competitive advantage
  • Access new markets
  • Meet regulatory requirements
  • Win new customers
  • Gain a competitive advantage

Achieving ISO certification can demonstrate to your customers that your business has the ability to meet their expectations on product or service performance, safety and quality. Certification may also be a legal or contractual requirement in some industries and territories.

There are many systems available to help organisations implement the various ISO management systems within their business. The key to choosing a system that works for your organisation is to ask your provider or consultant some searching questions such as:

  • How accessible is the system to my employees?
  • Is the system easy to use and maintain?
  • Is the system cost effective?
  • Will the system help us to achieve certified ISO status?
  • Does the system address the requirements for effective risk management?
  • Does the system provide an easy means of measuring and analysing performance?
  • Will our organisation be able to access and use the system quickly and easily?
  • Is the system secure and fully backed up?
  • Does the system prompt the organisation for actions and provide warnings and alerts?
  • Can I schedule system warnings and alerts?
  • Does the system provide for effective audit scheduling, reporting and corrective actions?
  • Does it have news and updates covering ISO changes?
  • Does it have a dedicated server for fast uploading/downloading of data?
  • Can we place our brand on the system?
