Adhere to Global Standards!
Appeal to New Customers!
A quality management system is critical to attracting suppliers and retaining customers. Why? In today’s global economy filled with numerous competitors, some international manufacturers may “cut corners” and deliver products that are inferior, unstable or even unsafe. A quality management system signifies that an organization adheres to industry standards in numerous areas appealing to suppliers and consumers. Some of these factors include:
- Consistency in delivering quality products and services
- Commitment to continuous improvement
- Structure and resources to produce quality products
- Customer satisfaction
A QMS is also important to manufacturers because it demonstrates that a company is complying to standards with cost-effective and efficient practices.
The ISO 9000 series is an internationally recognized set of standards related to quality management systems. Obtaining ISO Certification officially validates that a manufacturer can address the needs of customers while meeting specific requirements. By conforming to world manufacturing standards, ISO is designed to maintain optimum product and service levels and, in so doing, ensure cost effectiveness and customer satisfaction throughout all phases of manufacturing and distribution.
ISO registration is more than a checklist for quality – it’s a blueprint for results. ISO certified companies have:
- Increased sales by 20%
- Reduced costs by 35% in the first year
- Made additional cost reductions up to 61% after five years of registration
