ISO Certification for IT Company

IT companies of all sizes can benefit hugely from implementing a quality management system and securing ISO 9001 certification.

Not only does ISO certification look great to prospective clients, it will also help you and your company to...

  • Streamline your processes. A well-designed quality management system (QMS) ensures that all members of an organisation are working efficiently and staying focused on the final outcome. This is good news for both you and your customers!
  • Reduce waste. Time and resources often go to waste when people work inefficiently or don't know what they're doing, and that's as true in the IT sector as it is anywhere else. An ISO-compliant QMS will minimise waste within your organisation, helping you to deliver better results more quickly.
  • Take on new work. ISO certification is actually a requirement for some contracts, and once you've achieved ISO 9001 certification, you may find that you're able to take on a number of opportunities that were previously off-limits.

How we can help you to gain ISO certification

Here at ISO Accelerator, we help small- to medium-sized businesses to achieve ISO 9001 certification within the shortest possible timeframe.

We have worked with a number of digital/IT businesses in the past, so if you are interested in securing ISO certification for your company, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Introduction

The roots of The International Standards Organisation (ISO) can be traced all the way back to World War 2, where a demand for better safety standards within the factories that developed explosive devices grew. The ISO 9000, or BS 5750 series of standards as it was once known, was introduced in 1979, meaning businesses had to comply with strict production procedures in order to make workplaces safer. The ISO 9001 standard, built on these original outlines, was formally introduced in 1987 as many companies became increasingly frustrated with the original BS 5750 guidelines as these were specifically geared towards manufacturing businesses, resulting in them being a poor fit for a number of other companies and industries.

ISO 9001 was then created to address these issues and offer a universal framework for quality management that all businesses and industries can adhere to. Despite ISO 9001 being designed to be product and industry-friendly, the ever-changing and evolving nature of the business world meant that there was a need for further updates and revisions.

1994 Revision

The first of these revisions came in 1994, where the ISO’s intention was to move the focus of the original standard to quality management systems (QMS) that monitored and checked products at every stage involved in creating them instead of just at the finished stage. This change focused on quality assurance using anticipatory actions, rather than correcting any created issues. QMS, in essence, moved from a ‘cure’ to ‘prevention’ state.

2000 Update

In 2000, ISO 9001 was once again changed. The purpose this time was to simplify the processes and documentation involved so that companies will be less burdened with quality control procedures if they didn’t actually produce new products. Another aim of this revision was to increase the involvement of upper management in order to integrate quality control throughout the entirety of the business, connecting all levels of company hierarchy. The final goal of this update was to increase effectiveness through the use of process performance metrics, where continual process improvement and the monitoring of customer satisfaction became paramount.

More Changes in 2008

The changes to ISO 9001 that were seen in 2008 were minor in comparison to previous changes. Here, clearer clarifications were made to existing standards and enhancing the consistency with other ISO standards (ISO 14001), with no new requirements.

Latest Revision in 2015

The most recent change to ISO 9001 came in 2015 after it was concluded that a new QMS model for the next 25 years had to be created. As a result of this, work on created a new version if ISO 9001 began, starting with updated quality management principles. The change came not with the scope of the standard, but rather the core terms, to allow greater integration with other international management systems. This update also made the standard less prescriptive than previous versions, focusing much more on performance. This was accomplished by incorporating a process approach with risk-based thinking, resulting in no one system being the same in every business. Communication was a made a key area with the change, with the need for a quality representative eliminated, there is much more emphasis placed on everyone within the business having an influence in the development and maintenance of the QMS.

The standard is now seen as an ever-evolving document, being continually edited and updated with input from a number of trade committees and organisations with quality management know-how from across the globe, in order to stay as relevant to worldwide business as possible.

ISO 9001 2018

Many companies who apply for ISO 9001 certification do so because they believe it will ultimately result in more business for them. ISO 9001 accreditation is a mark of quality, and if a potential customer sees that your organisation is ISO 9001 certified, that may very well make them more likely to choose you over your competitors.

But is ISO 9001 certification still worth pursuing in 2018? We live in a hyperconnected world these days, and with so many different marketing avenues - including social networking, search engine advertising, online video, and more - now available to businesses of all sizes, it's easy to assume that ISO certification isn't worth the effort. Getting certified requires a certain amount of time and resources - wouldn't it be better to funnel those resources into other channels?

Well...yes, we think so! And here are three reasons why:

Why ISO 9001 certification is still worthwhile

  • It opens new doors. Many industries and organisations only work with ISO-certified suppliers. Achieving ISO 9001 accreditation could enable your company to take on all sorts of lucrative contracts that would otherwise be off limits.

  • It makes you work more efficiently. In order to get certified, you will need to implement a quality management system (QMS) that effectively minimises waste within your organisation and ensures that everyone is working towards total customer satisfaction and the continued improvement of the company.

  • It's still a trusted mark of quality. ISO 9001 certification is still a widely-recognised symbol of quality and commitment to customer satisfaction. Implementing an effective QMS and getting certified will set you apart from other businesses in your industry - and in this day and age, when Google can show consumers dozens of different providers at the click of a mouse, it's important to stand out in any way you can.

Get certified quickly and simply

The good news is that applying for ISO 9001 certification doesn't need to be the time-consuming, labour-intensive process it was in the past. Here at ISO Accelerator, we specialise in rapid ISO 9001 certification for businesses in the UK, the USA, and the rest of the world.
