Why you need to be ISO certified?
Seeing that there are businesses and organizations that are thriving without going through the rigorous process that leads to becoming ISO certified, you may wonder, why then, do you need to invest in getting your organization certified?
Whilst becoming certified earns you a certificate, the far-reaching benefits lay ahead of the certificate of conformance you earn. In fact, that certificate is not the ultimate goal of getting certified but putting in place a standard management system that streamlines your processes to fulfil specified industry requirements that ensure, the quality, safety and value of your products or services is never in question.
Besides that, becoming certified improves the confidence of your customers and the public in your processes, products and services. This is because they are all assured that your processes, products and services have been checked and proven to be of good standard.
Beyond that, becoming ISO certified markedly increases your marketability and gives you access to new markets. Once you’re certified, you’re able to retain current customers and attract prospective customers who make certification a prerequisite for their suppliers. Your products and services are allowed into foreign markets because they bear a standard mark which indicates they fulfil internationally required standards.
With an ISO standard incorporated into your operations, you’re going to register a remarkable reduction in operational costs because once you streamline your processes to specified requirements, you eliminate resource wastage.
Standard management systems improve consistency of your operations. ISO standards refine how you operate. This ensures you consistently produce products and services that consistently satisfy your customers.
Lastly, becoming ISO certified adds you to a select group of organizations and businesses that have committed themselves to putting into practice standards that ensure their processes, products and services are safe, reliable and add value to the user. Becoming ISO certified is an official ticket to becoming internationally recognized for your commitment to quality as a business or organization.
