Improve Marketability
Once a business becomes ISO certified, they can advertise their quality certification as well as respond to requests for quotes from firms, which make the ISO certificate a must have. Since ISO offers certifications and standards, which are globally acceptable, businesses have the opportunity of leveraging new market opportunities that they could not do business with before being ISO certified.
Improve Firm and Product Quality
A quality management system (QMS) entails quality standards. As such, one effect of incorporating a QMS should be an ameliorated level of quality for the whole firm. This translates to heightened quality standards in every process and every product. Quality can be termed as conformance to the set requirements. Thus, a well-developed, efficiently implemented ISO Quality Management System will put your business on the road to increased quality.
Increased Customer Satisfaction
Quality translates to whatever you are producing working as your clients expect. You will not only meet the set requirements, but you will meet more of clients’ implied requirements. Quality translates to reduced consumer complaints and doing more to resolve those complaints that come. An ISO certified business leverages an efficient quality management system, and per se, it can comprehend what the clients expect and provide it, increasing overall customer satisfaction.
Professional Culture Development
A business that is effectively able to implement an ISO quality management system is able to empower its employees. A QMS will provide your employees with clear and concise instructions on job descriptions and quality objectives. The tools serve as work instructions and procedures, as well as, prompt and actionable feedback on employee performance and process metrics.

    • Here are some other things you should consider when choosing which to work with:

      1) Reputation :- If you want to use your certificate for marketing purposes, you probably don’t want to get the certificate from a body that is known to give them away with no criteria whatsoever. You should choose a certification body with a solid – if not perfect – reputation.
      2) Accreditation :- Actually, anyone can give you a piece of paper saying that you are ISO 27001 certified; but not anyone is accredited (i.e. licensed) to do so – therefore, you need to check whether that certification body has accreditation, that is, if they have the license from the local government body in your country. For example, in the United Kingdom this body is UKAS; in United States it is ANAB.
      3) Specialisation:- If you are a bank, it is actually not a very good idea to have a certification body that has until now certified only manufacturing companies. This auditor may have a lot of experience in business continuity, but if he has audited only manufacturing companies by now, you will lose too much time explaining to him how the bank works – as a result, he will be learning much from you than you will from him.
      4) Experience :- Even if you might wish to choose an auditor with low experience to get by easily, it is actually in your best interest to have an experienced auditor because you might miss some valuable insight. So, do not be afraid to ask which auditor will audit you; ask for his CV and/or a list of companies he has audited.
      5) Integrated audit :- You may be starting only with ISO 27001, but if you also plan to implement ISO 22301, ISO 9001 and other standards, you can actually ask your certification body to do a so-called integrated audit. This means you won’t have to go through separate audits for each and every system (and pay the full fee for each of them), but you can do one audit for all these systems together – not only will you save time (an integrated audit takes less time than several separate audits), but also – yes, you will pay less.
      6) Flexibility :- If the certification body has to fly in the auditor from another continent (because they don’t have anyone locally), it will be very difficult for you to change the date of the audit (e.g. you didn’t finish your project, or some problem has happened) since all the travel arrangements have been made already.
      7) Language :- Even though the certification body might provide a translator if necessary, still the audit will go much smoother if the auditor speaks your language. He will read your documents much more easily, and you will be able to develop a better relationship with him if there is no language barrier.

      Think about the total value,
      So there it is – like with any other supplier, you will have to do your homework and choose the best one for you. And remember, you have to think about the total cost of the service you’re receiving and the price of lost opportunity – low-cost provider might take too much of your time, and provide little value in return.
