For companies seeking ISO accreditation, attaining certification online can boast a wide variety of benefits. Not only can it help save you money and reduce the financial burden of the accreditation process, it can also save time and reduce the workload for you and your team.

However, in addition to these obvious benefits, there are also less publicised perks to online ISO accreditation that go far beyond man hours and budget figures. Online accreditation can also help contribute to a healthier environment as well.

 

Professional Responsibility

As the 21st century enters its third decade, the world is becoming increasingly conscious of the environmental impact and ecological stress we are and have been putting on the Earth.

As a result, planetary conservation is a growing concern at the forefront of the general public and one that has crossed over to the professional realm in recent years.

For many companies, steps are being taken to limit harmful emissions, reduce carbon footprint and generally lessen the environmental impact of the business.

However, you don't have to replace your computers with typewriters and work by candlelight to make your workplace more eco-friendly. You can contribute to a healthier environment simply by going digital with ISO Accelerator…

 

Environmental Benefits of Online Accreditation

While digital ISO certification doesn't actively make the environment healthier, it does provide a green solution that significantly decreases the harmful processes that do adversely affect the planet.

With business conducted solely online, digital certification eliminates the necessity for a physical auditor to visit sites in person. As a result, the auditor isn't required to travel, saving fuel and reducing emissions in the process.

On the surface, that may seem insignificant; however, when multiplied, the results can be altogether remarkable. Eliminating the annual travel of a single auditor can reduce CO2 emissions quite literally by tonnes and have a dramatic impact on the environment as a result.

At ISO Accelerator, we pride ourselves on offering businesses a systematic route to ISO 9001 accreditation that's both cost-effective and time-saving.

Online efficiency is a top priority, and we are always striving to make the world of online accreditation as smooth and seamless as possible.

Which is exactly why we're introducing the use of ISO accreditation QR codes to aid with the authentication process of all our digital certificates going forward.

From there, you will be able to enter the certificate's individual identification number into the certificate checker for immediate confirmation of validity.

 

Multilateral Recognition

As if that weren't enough, we are also proud to announce that, later this year (Q4 2019), our accreditation body USAS will also be joining the multilateral recognition programme.

This will allow all USAS-accredited ISO certifications to be verified on the USAS website, offering global certification validation from anywhere in the world.

UK and USA flags

As the UK prepares for its departure from the European Union on 31 October 2019, many British businesses are turning their attention to the USA.

British and American people alike have long enjoyed the mutual benefits of their countries' close rapport, and that so-called 'special relationship' will only become more important once the UK has left the EU. Indeed, President Trump has stated that talks about a "very substantial" UK-US trade deal are already underway.

So how can UK business owners take advantage of the current situation?

 

Attract US customers with USAS-accredited certification

If you would like to bring in more business from the USA in the near future, it may be beneficial to hold ISO certification that's accredited by a US-based company.

ISO Accelerator is accredited by USAS, whose head office is located in Florida, USA. Getting your ISO 9001 certification from us will help American customers to have confidence in your business's quality management system, and what's more, our online certification process will save you a significant amount of time and money too!

Digital Certification

For companies seeking ISO 9001 certification, the prospect of the accreditation process can be a dark cloud looming on the business horizon, presenting laborious days and costly delays.

However, thanks to USAS-accredited ISO certification from ISO Accelerator, those fears can be wiped clean and, instead, be replaced with online efficiency and unobtrusive integration.

Sound too good to be true? Read on to find out just what digital certification from ISO Accelerator can do for you and your business.

 

Who are USAS?

Based out of Florida in the United States, USAS are an internationally-recognised accreditation body, offering accredited online certification for small- to medium-sized businesses. This covers companies that employ 25 individuals or less. (Companies with more employees can also apply on a case-by-case basis where numbers of employees perform the same tasks, e.g. Production Workers, Drivers, Salespeople, etc.)

USAS describe themselves as an “independent, impartial and paradigm pioneer in the field of accreditation”, which is no exaggeration.

Offering well-defined standards to ensure the technical competence and integrity of its accredited organisations, USAS are respected worldwide for their innovative and user-friendly business acumen, as well as their novel approaches to accreditation.

Through the USAS-accredited ISO certification process, we at ISO Accelerator give businesses around the globe the ability to get certified online, backed by a US-based third-party accreditation body.

 

Financial Benefits of Digital Certification

From a financial standpoint, digital certification has a notable upside, presenting numerous remunerative benefits.

First and foremost, the cost of digital certification is typically less than the alternative route, providing like-for-like monetary comparison that is as plain as day.

It’s also far more economical from a time standpoint, requiring fewer resources and labour hours than physical certification services, therefore allowing you to better utilise those resources elsewhere.

Additionally, it can be completed at a time that suits you, allowing you to schedule the task in line with your own timetable and priorities. During periods of heavy workload where focused labour is needed elsewhere, this fact alone can be hugely beneficial.

 

Environmental Benefits of Digital Certification

In addition to the litany of measurable financial advantages, the benefits of digital certification also extend to the environment.

In a modern society where conservation is becoming increasingly important, more and more aspects of daily life have been taken online in an attempt to reduce carbon emissions and lessen the environmental impact: from e-tickets to online bank statements.

Digital certification is no different, and can have a profound effect on the carbon footprint of the certification process. The online nature of digital certification negates the need for a physical auditor to drive to and from the site, creating a process that requires significantly less travel.

Over the course of a year, the energy-saving benefits can be significant. In fact, cutting out the annual travel needs of just one auditor can result in a reduction of CO2 emissions that literally measures in the tonnes.

 

Why Choose ISO Accelerator?

When it comes to management systems and the associated standards, digital certification is a novel approach to the accredited certification process that’s tailor-made for the digital age of today. Gone are the wads of paper and lengthy in-person pleasantries, replaced by online comms and fast-track results.

Bringing a contemporary technological solution to an industry that has been crying out for just that, the streamlined process of online accreditation is a revolutionary way of achieving ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification practically, efficiently and responsibly.

In addition to saving time and money, your company can actively contribute to a healthier planet at the same time. Enhance your business, reduce your outgoings and promote sustainability today, all by completing your certification digitally online with ISO Accelerator.
