After a lengthy process and several audits, it’s been confirmed – we’re ISO 9001 certified! All of IST’s nine offices in all four local markets are included in the certification, meaning we can now prove we deliver consistent quality to our users.
ISO 9001 is an international standard for quality management systems that provides the organization with necessary processes and documentation for its daily operations and the means to constantly measure and improve our performance.
The certification proves that IST fulfills these requirements with aim to exceed our customers’ expectations on our products and services.
“ISO 9001 not only provides support and guidelines internally, but also creates confidence and proven maturity for IST as a company. This is the result of a long process and many hours of work by people from all over the organization. We’re proud to achieve the certification and to be able to continue to deliver quality to our users!”Tom Svaleklev, Quality Manager at IST
