Back in 2016, we helped David Store Navigational Management to achieve ISO 9001 certification with zero non-conformances. The DSNM team were so impressed with the support and guidance we provided that they opted to continue their working relationship with NPT Management Systems, and since that initial success, we have been helping them to maintain and develop their quality management system over time.
Shortly before the end of last year, DSNM reached another important milestone with the help of our experienced ISO consultants: they successfully transitioned to ISO 9001:2015, the latest version of the ISO standard for quality management systems. Just as before, this process was completed without any non-conformances being raised.
Here's what DSNM's Fleet Director Martin Amy had to say in the wake of this latest achievement:
"It's been a pleasure working with NPT Management Systems for these past years. As our organisation has developed, so too has our ISO system with the guidance of Neil and his team. To date, both our internal and external audits have been faultless due to careful planning and direction. Our future plans encompassing growth and diversification can be actioned without fear, knowing that we have robust processes and systems in place to back us up."
We at NPT Management Systems have worked with a number of marine industry clients in Southern England, but our knowledgeable ISO 9001 experts are capable of providing a tailored consultancy service to businesses in virtually all fields and sectors.

A new year is upon us once again, and business owners the world over will be spending the first few weeks of January planning out ways to maximise their success in 2018.
If you're looking to ensure that this year is your organisation's most prosperous yet, we strongly recommend that you implement an effective quality management system (QMS) and pursue ISO 9001 certification. Here are three reasons to do it:
1. Improved Trust
Consumers are always eager to see evidence of a supplier's quality and reliability. Achieving ISO 9001 certification demonstrates that your company is dedicated to continuous improvement and to providing the very highest level of customer service. This is likely to result in a higher number of leads and enquiries for your business.
2. More Opportunities
Certain organisations and sectors exclusively offer business to ISO-certified organisations. Depending on the type of work you do and the sort of clients/customers you're looking to attract, ISO 9001 certification may open any number of new doors for you.
3. Increased Efficiency
Gaining ISO certification won't just attract new business - it will also ensure that you're able to handle your current workload more efficiently. An ISO-compliant QMS will reduce wastage within your organisation and enable all departments to work more effectively.
If you would like to achieve ISO 9001 certification in 2018, please contact NPT Management Systems for expert advice that's tailored to your requirements.
