ISO 9001: Ensuring Employees and Subcontractors are Using Correct Procedures

Where procedures are documented and distributed in paper form, it is necessary to have a rigorous process for ensuring that, whenever any change is required, all copies are either individually updated or replaced. This can be quite bureaucratic and time consuming if there are many paper copies.

Modern quality management systems have done away with this expensive and error-prone practice by having only a single master version to which all personnel have access through computer networking. Of course, this does require all personnel to have some means of internet or internal network access, but with hand held devices becoming ever more ubiquitous, this is no longer a problem even in the most rugged working environments.

This means that implementing a quality management system is now easier than ever before. Also, history shows that in tough times economically, those businesses that operate quality management systems are the ones that survive and prosper. Your business needs a quality management system if it too is to survive and prosper.
