ISO 9001 is a quality management system acknowledged and recognized worldwide and for many the standard is a synonym for quality, effective management and structured customer relations.
The management system is closely linked to other systems from which you and your company may already be benefitting. An example is total quality management, quality price models, LEAN, Six Sigma, Business process reengineering, balanced scorecard and activity-based costing.
The ISO 9001 standard provides your company with new contacts and contracts and in many cases, the standard serves as a quality stamp because the management system testifies and ensures that your company provides consistent and high quality.
ISO 9001 certification can help ensure that customers choose your company over your competitors.
ISO 9001 specifies requirements for the entire process, including requirements for establishment, implementation, maintenance and requirements for continuing improvements of the company’s quality management system (QMS).
Hence, ISO 9001 is a management tool ensuring that the organization creates a solid foundation for quality assessment and constantly focuses on improvements and keeps the company competitive.
The management system helps your company to organize and work systematically with quality and service in relation to your company’s needs. This implies that quality management can be used by any organization regardless of the field in which they operate.
