Why should we consider Quality Management, or ISO 9001 certification?
It has always been done like that ... !
Quality Management can help your company to better fulfill your customer's needs.
Quality Management ensures that our products or services fulfill our customer's needs and expectations. It covers not only the final product, but in particular the path and the means to achieve it. In a nutshell, we focus on two core questions:
- Are we doing the right things? Are we effective?
- Are we doing things right? Can we improve existing processes to use our resources more efficiently?
The renowned ISO 9001 standard (which is "the" standard for Quality Management) describes Best Practices in business management. A well-implemented Quality Management system will reduce waste, improve responsiveness ... and thus increase both customer satisfaction and job security.
