ISO certifications highlight a company’s ability to meet internationally recognised standards within an industry; rigorously testing qualities ranging from energy management to product quality. For years Stopford have adhered to both ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 standards, ensuring the creation of rules and processes which help deliver best product possible.
Today we look at what ISO certifications Stopford have and the advantages they bring to both customers and the organisation.
What is ISO 9001 and what are the benefits?
ISO 9001 is a certification awarded to companies that comply with strict criteria regarding internal quality management systems. During the certification process policies and procedures are all assessed to determine their ability to maintain international quality management standards. This means that Stopford have been found to provide the standard in areas including quality control, staff training and product reporting necessary to deliver consistently quality products.
With this certification, clients can be assured that Stopford have put in the time and effort to develop internal practices that will provide high quality results. Improved decision-making and stronger standards will enable us to provide better customer service and reduce our own long-term operating costs in the process.
What is ISO 27001 and what are the benefits?
ISO 27001 focuses on information security management within a company, with emphasis on the protection of both customer and company data. This applies to data in all forms from physical documents to Cloud based electronic files. As the globally recognised benchmark for security practice, the audit inspects a companies ability to conduct risk assessments, develop robust security policies and more.
By attaining this certification clients can be assured that Stopford are taking all precautions to ensure the security of all information assets and are prepared for future challenges. By reviewing our existing policies through the audit we are able to monitor future security threats, increase our security defence and train staff to best respond to emergencies.
