Achieving an ISO quality management certification can pay huge dividends for your business in improved efficiency, productivity and customer satisfaction.
But the benefits of ISO go far beyond your operations to every aspect of the business, including sales and marketing, strategic planning and employee engagement.
ISO standards increase the overall efficiency of your business by standardizing your business processes. International organization for standardization is an independent and non-governmental organization that ensures the quality, safety, and efficiency of products & services in an organization. Every certification has its separate standards and criteria that are mentioned and classified numerically.
This individual standard outlines a specific set of regulations that are laid out within a series of clauses. ISO improves manufacturing quality management systems by requiring detailed processes and implementing gap analysis and internal audits. All of the requirements of ISO are generic and applicable to any organization, regardless of its type or size or the products and services it provides—all can benefit from following these standards and principles. An ISO certification means your manufacturing business has complied with these requirements, which can lead to significant advantages for your organization over non-certified competitors.
What are the benefits of being ISO Certified?
While there are numerous advantages to being ISO certified, here are the five main advantages that an ISO certification can bring to manufacturers:
1: Boost Employee Performance and Productivity
Engaged employees are motivated to implement processes that are put in place to ensure that problems are quickly identified and resolved in a timely manner. Additionally, the consistent process audits through ISO can keep your employees focused while providing critical feedback when your processes deviate from consistency.
2: Define Your Company’s Quality Control Processes
A cornerstone component of ISO certification is establishing thorough business processes and defining responsibilities for quality control—and equally as important, relaying those specifications to employees. After all, 85% of Em0ployees are most motivated when internal communications are effective! Implementing ISO certification requirements provides valuable key performance such as on-time delivery, throughput, and overall equipment effectiveness, to accurately reflect your system’s performance. These metrics will help you make more educated decisions to improve growth and profitability throughout your company.
3: Reduce Waste and Improve Efficiency
Earning the ISO certification enforces a continuous improvement strategy, so that you’re always, by design, seeking ways to reduce waste and improve efficiency. Utilizing the requirements set forth in ISO will help to first identify areas of waste and then implement preventative measures to avoid wasteful situations. Streamlining your manufacturing operations from the ground up through ISO means every moving part is as effective as possible rather than discarded or unused.
4: Provide an Improved Customer Experience
The ISO certification process provides an enhanced customer service experience by not only identifying key priorities for customers, but also outlining processes to further optimize these priorities based on customer expectations and needs. Products with enhanced quality translate into reduced customer complaints and more satisfied consumers. The most successful manufacturers of today know that delivering a better product or service is what will keep customers coming back. Producing a product in a way that reduces waste and cuts costs means that you can bring more value to your customer, which further reinforces their loyalty to your business.
5: Increase Confidence in your Manufacturing Business
An ISO certification demonstrates to both customers and stakeholders that your business has the capabilities of delivering high-quality products that meet all industry regulations and are delivered on time. This is crucial for your business, as your products should reflect the measures taken to create consistency and confidence on customers to create consistency in a global market.
An ISO certification also ensures that your business has all of the necessary tools, resources, and equipment for effectively producing your product or service.
