Quality Management Systems Improve Your Business

Certification to a Quality Management System, coupled and aligned with an overall business strategy, can help companies, both large and small, expand into new markets, increase sales and reduce costs. From a customer’s point of view, a QMS signifies that a company is dedicated and committed to:

  • Delivering quality products and services 
  • Continuous improvement and sustainability 
  • Customer satisfaction

ISO/AS Certifications

The ISO /AS certification series is highly respected and well sought after within the manufacturing community. In fact, many customers and suppliers now require that their business partners have certification. This is because ISO/AS isn’t just a checklist for action-items related to quality; they provide a blueprint for companies to adopt more efficient business operations and processes, establish cost-effective practices and improve how all employees feel about their role in the organization.

The benefits of certification make a huge impact on your profitability – you’re reducing costs and increasing sales at the same time. Certified companies are known to simultaneously increase sales by 20% while reducing costs by 35%!

Why AM&T?

AM&T brings a wealth of experience with both large and small businesses to the quality certification process and can give you an objective third-party view of what is required for certification. Our goal is to simplify, customize and develop a system that suits your business. We'll show you how to make it work for you and how to sustain the system for long-term improvements.

The first step includes objectively evaluating your current quality management systems. Then, we compare them to the standard being pursued. Gaps are identified and we work with you to develop a road map to close those gaps. AM&T’s experts then partner with you to implement the road map. We can take as active a role as needed, from helping write documentation and procedures, to giving general guidance and mentoring a company throughout the process. We'll work to your schedule and be mindfull of your on-going business needs.

AM&T has worked with registrars for years, so we understand what they look for when auditing a company to determine if it’s compliant. Since many of our consultants are also registrar auditors, their experience can help you avoid many of the pitfalls on the road to certification.
