Components such as cyber security, software development, digital marketing and web developments are key within this industry.
IT companies often are the face of many challenges which include disaster recovery, cyber threats and technology expectations. ISO certification can become a game changer for IT companies, due to the competitive digital edge they gain. For IT businesses, sustainability is a key area of interest. ISO certification can help businesses improve their security, resilience and transparency. With the adaptation of regulations within the IT industry, stakeholders prefer to look to work with IT companies who withhold the ISO standards as they can provide a solidified Management System which helps business scale up and successions.

By implementing the ISO standards, IT companies will be able to demonstrate Quality, Environmental, Information Security and Health & Safety processes. Another key benefit to ISO implementation is gaining the competitive edge against competitors. Tenders would much rather work with companies who are ISO certified, over those who are not.
ISO 9001 will ensure that efficiency within your business is present, alongside increasing customer satisfaction and retention. This industry is highly competitive, so gaining ISO 9001 at a minimum will be a positive start to your ISO journey. ISO 27001, the standard for Information Security is considered highly important amongst IT companies. Where data breaches are one of the biggest factors affecting IT companies, controlling security can give you that financial and competitive edge. The standard for environmental management; ISO 14001, is also considered to be of importance to IT companies. This will ensure green credentials are obtained and considerations are made regarding products’ environmental impacts. You may also want to consider ISO 45001, the Health and Safety standard. Implementing procedures which deal with products, along with manual handling can reduce risk. By achieving ISO 45001, you would be demonstrating hazard prevention and consideration to stakeholders.
We have developed two pathways for ISO certification. Internally managed and supported by consultancy. This means that you can achieve certification in whichever way suits your company and current Management System. Our consultants have extensive experience in the ISO world and will be there to support you through the ISO journey. All requirements of the ISO standard will be in place and thoroughly checked prior to your external assessment.
The Cost of consultancy is very much dependent on the size and scope of your company. We will always offer a free visit to assess your company’s requirements and provide a no obligation quote based on this initial assessment together with an estimated completion date.
If we implement The Titan System, we will set up a fixed monthly subscription fee on a flexible rolling contract. Prices for both are available on request here.
