BENEFITS OF OUR PROGRAM
Cost Efficiency – Developing a comprehensive ISO 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 ISO 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 18 – 24 months for a new “from scratch” program, an organization can spend and upwards of 4,000 hours and over $200,000 for a single employee to build out the program with no real assurance it will get them ISO accredited.
Using Accredit-IT, organizations can save 3,000 hours and $100,000 or more and can rest assured the proposed solution has been successfully applied to organizations that are now ISO 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 flexible quality management system.
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. 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.
