Wait! Don’t go just yet! I know that sounds as interesting as watching grass grow, but ISO 9001:2015 is actually a fantastic set of standards that you should seriously consider holding your company to so you can better serve your customers with quality support and products.
What exactly is ISO 9001:2015? It’s a set of standards maintained by the International Organization for Standardization that provides guidance and tools for companies that want to prioritize the quality of their products and ensure that their customer experience is constantly improving. It’s based on several quality management principles, including a strong focus on customers, a motivated and responsible upper management, and searching for never-ending improvement. All of this builds up into a Quality Management System, or QMS.
Being centered around the consumer is a time-intensive process that requires measuring, monitoring, and reporting on progress and potential ideas, routine internal audits of processes, maintaining detailed records for analysis and record keeping, and confirming that your employees have sufficient training to facilitate success.
