What is ISO 9001?
Over 1 million companies worldwide hold certification to ISO 9001 placing them in ideal position to demonstrate to customers and stakeholders that they operate in accordance with a globally recognised standard. ISO 9001 is a model which will allow your organisation to improve control and manage core business processes. Not only will the standard enable these processes to be standardised, but it will also enable you to monitor and check their effectiveness and identify when they are not properly applied.

Why should it be considered?
Another common reason for implementing ISO 9001 is that organisations recognise that their current processes and operating models are not as effective as they could be and suffer from staff doing the same task in many ways, therefore producing inconsistent outputs and variations which results in a negative impact on customers and additional cost.
Implementation of the standard requires an organisation to examine its business processes, identify best practice, standardise processes and then apply them consistently which allows for a solid platform for any organisations attempting growth.
What impact will it have?
Customer satisfaction and retention:
Core to ISO 9001 is a requirement to ensure that processes are in place for monitoring customer perception and satisfaction. Application of the quality management standard can provide invaluable information regarding customer satisfaction and engagement, which can lead to further opportunities to grow and secure relationships with customers.
Information and analysis
Information is essential to any business decision making. Implementing ISO 9001 will enable the identification of suitable metrics for your business processes, which will enable you obtain a true picture of operational and business performance. Not only will this tell you where things are working effectively, it will also identify pain points and provide a framework for addressing these.
One of the most significant benefits of the standard is the benefit of process standardisation. This will mean an analysis of the business and identification of the best and most efficient way of doing things. These standardised processes will then be implemented the processes and their application monitored therefore reducing the likelihood of costly errors and wastage.
