What We Do...

We manage every aspect of ISO 9001, AS9100, or AS9120 implementation for you, including interacting with the Certification Body (CB). We can do this because, unlike consultants who make recommendations or suggestions, we act at the direction of your management to develop, implement and maintain your Quality Management System (QMS).

Most businesses already outsource activities to multiple professional service providers. For example:

  • Accounting/Bookkeeping (Finance)
  • Calibration and/or Maintenance Services
  • Human Resources & Payroll
  • Information Technology (IT)
  • Marketing and Advertising
  • Testing Services

Outsourcing makes sense because it frees management to focus on its core competencies (i.e., what it does best). And outsourcing to companies who are experts in their field provides management with confidence that those activities are being performed efficiently and effectively.

Now imagine being able to outsource the activities necessary for ISO 9001, AS9100, or AS9120 QMS Certification to a team of experts… removing the burden of researching all of the complicated requirements involved in achieving certification.

As a member of your team we…

  • develop and maintain all the required documentation (procedures, flowcharts, forms),
  • ensure that your employees are aware of any new requirements in their area,
  • prepare your employees on how to answer questions from the auditor,
  • perform and record the required internal quality audits,
  • host & record the required management reviews,
  • coordinate selection of the best accredited Certification Body (CB) for your needs,
  • coordinate with the CB to ensure that your company quickly, smoothly, and efficiently achieves ISO 9001, AS9100, or AS9120 certification,
  • host the certification audits, ensuring that the auditor can easily verify how your company complies with the standard through being the designated “guide” for the auditor(s), assisting them:
    • in locating the required documentation, and records, and,
    • introducing them to the employees that they will need to interview,
  • quickly respond to any issues identified by the auditor(s), and
  • continue to support your company in maintaining that certification during the annual audits from the CB.

Our clients are typically ready for a certification audit within 6 – 12 weeks.

100% of our clients achieve certification on their first attempt.

Our team will be with you every step of the way. Depending on your needs, our team provides on-site and/or remote/virtual support services.

We provide you with “peace of mind” that the required QMS certifications will be obtained and consistently maintained for as long as needed. We’ll be with you now and into the future. When a standard is revised, our team will make the required changes for your business to stay in compliance.

Our Value Proposition

According to PayScale.com (08/23), a Quality Assurance Director in the United States earns an average base salary of $119.5k (without considering FICA tax (7.65% of Salary – approx. $9,140) + benefits). The high end of this salary range is $169k ($184k after Bonuses and profit Sharing).

Most micro (≤10 employees) and small (11-50 employees) companies only need a part-time Quality professional to develop, implement, and oversee the QMS along with achieving and maintaining their QMS Certification. So rather than over-burden existing employees (possessing little or no quality experience) with those added responsibilities OR hiring a Consultant to train & guide your staff through the unfamiliar process of achieving QMS Certification, it makes sense to outsource these tasks to an experienced Quality Manager / Specialist on an as-needed basis… until such time as a full-time Quality Assurance professional can be justified.

Due to their extensive knowledge, skills, and experience, our team members are able to accomplish QMS implementation and certification with far greater efficiency and speed at only a fraction of what a full-time Quality Assurance Director would cost your business. Also, much of the QMS development can be performed remotely/virtually.

While medium-sized companies 51-500 employees) typically have a formal QMS in place, they often lack personnel with the knowledge, skills, and experience to efficiently manage the QMS Certification Process. Contracting us to provide a part-time Quality Specialist to manage your QMS Certification process allows your existing Quality staff to stay focused on their day-to-day activities (and your customers) without the annual distraction of preparing for and hosting 3rd Party Audits.

For AS91xx ✈️ companies, we may be able to achieve greater savings by implementing all of the requirements to obtain a low overall “risk rating” under the “Organization Certification Analysis Process (OCAP)” requirements.

100% of our clients achieve certification on their first attempt.

This means that no CB has ever required a “follow-up” or “special” audit for any of our clients prior to being issued their certification.

We provide you with “peace of mind” that we'll take care of QMS certification!
