At Mark1, we are often asked to describe the benefits of quality management systems, and there are certainly plenty of general improvements that you can expect to see after implementing one. However, some are very industry-specific. In this blog, we will explain how implementing quality management system software can benefit businesses in the wholesale Sector.
What Is a Quality Management System?
A quality management system, or QMS, is a system that documents how your business or organisation operates – the formal cataloguing of processes, responsibilities, and the ways in which you meet your policies and objectives. This allows you to identify issues, optimise the way your business runs, and ensure that the quality of your products and services will remain consistent by mandating best practices. This assures the retailers working with your company that you can deliver excellence on a large scale.
ISO QMS Benefits for the Wholesale Sector
There are many benefits of quality management system implementation, aside from helping you to achieve ISO 9001. For example, assessing your entire supply chain ensures that you have greater control over quality management, and can assure higher standards throughout. This also makes it easier for you to mandate your compliance with industry and regulatory requirements, finding issues and fixing them promptly. You can also seek to reduce your carbon footprint through responsible sourcing, exert greater market influence, and facilitate the sustainable growth of your business. In short, the oversight and attention to detail provided by a good quality system is valuable in all aspects of wholesale management.
