What are the real benefits to a business that certifies to ISO?
For many people they understand the concept of ISO certification – a set of specifications for products, services and systems to ensure quality, safety and efficiency.
We look at the top six key reasons why ISO certification can benefit your business.
1. Cost savings
The processes you put in place can optimise operations by minimising waste and errors, therefore improving the bottom line.
2. Customer satisfaction
Customers are the lifeblood of any business and by improving the quality of your product or service you have the ability to enhance customer satisfaction and increase sales.
3. Access to new markets
ISO standards are internationally recognised, so they can help companies access new markets overseas. Closer to home, they are now often a prerequisite for tenders in Government and Government-related entities.
4. Increased market share
If you are in business, you clearly already have a market share. However, by increasing your productivity you are taking steps to develop a competitive advantage against your competitors.
5. Independent Auditing and Review
Trust needs to be earned and an independent review of your organisation provides customers with confidence in your systems.
6. System Integration
ISO is not about starting from scratch with your processes; it’s about ensuring your system are integrated and effectively ‘talking’ to each other.
