Our team’s 15 plus years’ experience developing, managing, auditing, and assessing international accredited programs, our experience as an American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board-International (ASCLD/LAB) Board Member, and our in-depth knowledge, understanding, and operational familiarity with international accreditation standards gives us the needed knowledge, skills, and abilities to efficiently develop comprehensive accreditable quality management systems.
When comparing our capabilities to that of competitors, the benefits of choosing Accredit-IT® are:
Cost Efficiency – Developing a comprehensive compliant quality management system can be challenging for organizations that are unfamiliar with the accreditation process. Significant time and effort can be spent learning and properly applying the requirements of an international accreditation standard and in most cases, it takes numerous organizational resources and several months if not years to complete. Assuming an average development time of 12 month for a new “from scratch” program, an organization can spend upwards of $250,000 to build out the program with no real assurance it will get them accredited. Using Accredit-IT®’s solution, organizations could save upwards of $175,000 or more and can rest assured the proposed solution has been successfully applied to organizations that are now internationally accredited.
Agility – Organizations are constantly faced with the need for change because of new regulatory requirements, market demands, or the emergence of new technologies and processing methodologies. One key feature of Accredit-IT®’s solution is that it facilitates the design of a quality management system that is flexible. Quality policies and procedures can easily be customized to suit the requirements of your organization.
Productivity – Documentation improvements like the removal of unnecessary information not needed to meet the requirements, the introduction of standardized and streamlined procedures, and the elimination of repeated language are easily achieved with Accredit-IT®’s solution. These improvements allow employees to spend less time trying to understand what is needed and more time on mission critical activities. This translates into increased productivity and reduced waste.
Efficiency & Reduced Risks – The auditing of quality policies, procedures, and operational activities allows for the identification of process inefficiencies and opportunities for improvement. Accredit-IT®’s solution results in the creation of better-designed, executed, and monitored processes which can help reduce risk and drive operational improvements.
Compliance – Organizations need to be compliant with industry regulations and best practices. Accredit-IT®’s solution ensures organizations have a system that allows them to address and implement regulatory requirements quickly, thereby preventing delays in handling compliance issues and associated unforeseen costs, both in reporting and penalties. When you adopt Accredit-IT®’s solution, you integrate compliance into the organization’s operational process life cycle.
Standardized & Streamlined – With Accredit-IT®’s solution, each task is executed the way it is planned and designed. Policy and procedure developments are standardized and streamlined. Exceptional situations and responses are also addressed with Accredit-IT®’s solution to ensure they are handled appropriately.
Sustainability – Organizations need to continually improve and adapt to changing operational conditions, so they can continue to deliver expected results. Accredit-IT®’s solution ensures this need for flexibility and adaptation can be achieved while maintaining control and managerial oversight.
Measurability – All proposed quality policy objectives can be measured end-to-end and compared to expected results. Accredit-IT®’s solution when implemented correctly, provides reporting and analytical processes for making executive decisions. With Accredit-IT®’s solution, you can streamline processes and quantify how these processes are helping your organization optimize its workflows.
