How many times have you lost out on business because you couldn’t tick that small little box that asks if you have ISO 9001 certification? In fact, are you like me the first time I read that, and went “Huh?”
But if you’ve got the tick, you’re a serious player – no one gets certification for the fun of it. Only the top contenders go there and the reputation of ISO 9001:2015 certification speaks volumes for potential clients.
Being able to tick that little ISO 9001 box can mean:
- Bigger contracts
- Bigger clients
- Bigger profits
So, like me, you probably searched for a quick solution on the internet, only to find a bunch of expensive paper based systems that asked you to reshape your entire company around whatever they said was required.
For the past few years, I’ve watched small to medium sized businesses – electricians, tradies, manufacturers – struggle with unmanageable, over-complicated ISO 9001 systems designed for massive corporations with dedicated compliance teams and specialists. Big hefty ring folders filled with a bunch of forms and paperwork that aren’t needed and are never used – an expensive system that is all but worthless. Although they do make excellent door stops.
I’ll let you in on a little secret. If you’ve survived in business for longer than 12 months and are ready to move up to the next level of client, chances are you are already doing a lot of what the ISO 9001:2015 standard is asking for. Even if you don’t have it written down, or call it something different to them, you’ll still have some kind of system. What we need to do is match up what you do to the Standard.
That’s why I developed my ‘folder free’ ISO 9001 QMS.
It’s a tailored quality management system that helps Australian SMEs implement and fit ISO 9001:2015 to their companies with a minimum of fuss and disruption to your core activities. Increase sales, improve margins and become recognised as a go to for quality products and services with a folder-free and easy-to-use management system.
So what do I mean by folder free?
My systems is designed to get all of that valuable information out of folders and into the open – where it can be used, implemented and add value to your business. (That doesn’t mean you can’t have a folder if you’re a stationery junkie like me – just that you don’t need a whole bunch of ‘em sitting unopened on a shelf).
Every single one of my clients who have used my folder free method have found that:
- ISO 9001:2015 isn’t actually that scary
- It’s easier to manage
- It brings huge benefits to their bottom lines
- They have a 100% success rate in passing certification
- It helps to grow their business
But you may need to get a new doorstop.
If you wanted to do this unaided, you’d either need to do it yourself or hire a new employee, read how ISO 9001:2015 works, fire up all the documentation, mess it up (hey, I did the first time), start over, rant at how confusing some parts of it are, and then waste endless hours trying to make your business fit into the standard box. And it will likely take months of late nights and more strong coffee than any one person should have.
Or would you prefer to work with an expert who can fit ISO into your business, with a minimum of fuss, and little to no disturbance to your daily activities. And get it done in less than 3 months.*
Most importantly, you get to keep focusing on running your business – securing and delivering more lucrative contracts with tip level clients. Most of the hard work is done for you. The only thing you’ll definitely need to do is make sure you have a big supply of good coffee on hand for any on-site visits (black, no sugar, thanks).
Better profits. Less fuss. Sound good?

If you don’t pass your certification first time, we’ll pay for the follow up audit. Obviously, there are some terms and conditions here – you have to actually use the system for starters and we’ll need access to key players in the company when we set and build your system. However, if you do, we’re so confident that you’ll pass we’ll put our money on the line.
