Why You Should Obtain Your ISO Certification

Quality weighs heavily on a supplier’s purchasing decision. Manufacturers who can demonstrate quality have a powerful selling advantage because if a buyer perceives value, he or she can be persuaded to purchase a product, spend more, or repurchase from the seller.

MTS can serve as a resource for helping manufacturers implement a quality management system or improve their quality standards. Instilling the importance of quality in your people, processes, and products can help manufacturers reduce product variation, warranty charges, and expensive liability claims.

One way to demonstrate dedication to quality is to obtain an ISO Certification. This certification gives your organization a competitive advantage over companies in a similar market. It helps you stand out among your competition by sporting a badge of quality. Many companies now expect their suppliers to be ISO certified because it demonstrates a high standard of quality. Manufacturers without the certification are unlikely to be viewed as strong candidates for new partnerships and business opportunities. It also can limit who they can work with internationally.

There is a high level of discipline necessary to achieve and maintain your ISO Certification. MTS can help manufacturers create an environment that upholds strong quality standards and integrates your QMS/EMS objectives into your strategies and business plan.

We also offer the ISO 9001:2015 Internal Auditor Training, which trains employees on how to audit their quality management processes. Through this training, employees learn the basic principles, techniques, and steps for auditing their systems as well as how to measure, maintain, and improve quality standards throughout their business. This training is available to businesses that are not ISO certified but desire to audit and improve their quality program and those businesses that are. We would highly recommend this course for everybody involved in conducting or supporting ISO internal audits.

By using quality controls in your processes, your organization will develop consistency. Even minor changes made to your processes can greatly reduce the variability of your products.
