Opening New Doors Through ISO Certification
QMS ISO 9001 is a set of internationally recognized standards for quality control. It supplies a set of specific rules for documenting the processes of production within a company. Although the system allows companies to define their own process, it places a heavy emphasis on a strict adherence to that process once it has been established. With these processes concrete, formalized, and well documented, companies can better achieve consistency control for their product. Strenuous though these requirements may be, businesses that follow them can be certified as ISO compliant. Having such a distinction is appealing to potential partners; prestigious manufacturers require that their vendors have up-to-date QMS ISO 9001 certifications.
Maintaining a Compliant Quality Management System
Once certified, running afoul of these standards can be a logistical nightmare, yet remaining compliant requires a significant investment of resources. We can help with that. Abel Solutions is dedicated to providing customers with a comprehensive remedy to this issue. We offer a SharePoint-based solution specifically designed to help companies implement and maintain an ISO-compliant document solution of their production or service processes. Our software, QMS|Share, is an all-in-one solution-accelerator aimed at making ISO compliance simple and effective.
