ISO – The International Organization for Standardization
Driving ISO initiatives with Business Process Management (BPM) creates far-reaching value for your organization, going beyond the ISO audit certification. While ISO standards are extremely useful to organizations, some of the standards lack a comprehensive outlook of the needs of modern businesses. Beyond a standard designed to facilitate international trade, ISO certification provides value in the form of marketing appeal and by fulfilling customer requirements. In order to achieve optimal business practices that will maximize your ROI, industry best practices provide ISO’s missing components.
Understanding ISO: Definition
ISO Standards are documents which provide guidelines, requirements and specifications to ensure products, processes and services fit their purpose. Economic uncertainty has forced companies to find ways to become more efficient in order to maintain profitability and be globally competitive. Formal performance improvement programs like ISO 9000 help to improve quality and operational efficiency, granting your company a competitive edge.
International standard that specifies requirements for a QMS. It is the most popular standard in the ISO 9000 series and the only standard in the series to which organizations can certify.
First published in 1987 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The current version of ISO 9001 was released in September 2015.
The ISO 27000 international series of standards is the leading measurement metric for Security techniques as they relate to Information Security Management Systems. It is composed of a combination of policies and processes for organizations to form a framework to protect their information through the adoption of an Information Security Management System (ISMS). ISO 27001 is the most referenced standard in this series for certification.
As part of our ongoing commitment to compliance and ensuring that our clients meet their regulatory requirements, we are always on the lookout for ways to help our clients attain and maintain full compliance. Interfacing is ISO 27001 certified and we are partnering with Amazon Web Services (AWS) for cloud-hosting since their commitment to compliance is proven, with global data centers compliance to SOC 1 Type II and ISO 27001. For more information on AWS compliance for ISO 18345, FDA QSR and GxP, please refer to their compliance program.
Electronic Quality Management System (eQMS) & ISO
Interfacing is here to assist you with the always evolving changes to compliance requirements that need to be addressed immediately. We lead the way to corporate transparency with our easy to deploy and comprehensive digital Integrated Management System (IMS) solutions for all your compliance, risk and process management needs.
IMS allows business users to define and share your organization’s governing policies, so as to ensure compliance. By automatically applying these policies to the related processes, IMS takes care of compliance for you.
IMS standardizes processes to meet compliance with corporate and regulatory policies, eliminating many of the errors created by manual compliance solutions. By automating the processes and providing appropriate reporting and tracking, errors can be avoided, resulting in significant cost savings.
Complete audit trails that allow you to track all processes and changes can be extracted and reported – a vital component for managing change and ensuring process compliance to standards and regulations. This improved visibility allows you to identify and correct weaknesses with ease.
IMS streamlines processes and their development and allows for their fully integrated end-to-end management. Our solution helps you cut through the clutter and maximize the effectiveness of your processes every time.
Evidence Based Decision Making
One example is better control awareness on how gaps and faulty assumptions suddenly come to light through implementation of SOX compliance procedures. Inadequate controls are quickly identified as complex manual processes are automated through implementation of newer, more accurate workflows.
IMS lets you streamline and automate your compliance initiatives, including reporting and executing change, which lowers the soft and hard costs of compliance and risk management.
