Blueprint Lab is proud to announce that we are now ISO9001 certified! After a successful year of company-wide growth, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to tighten up our policies & procedures in-house, as well as our external customer-facing services. This ensures we’re doing right by our team and our clients – the two most important assets to our business.
Far from a ‘box ticking’ exercise, the road to achieving this milestone has hugely multiplied our corporate efficiency as well as product and service quality. With close to 20 staff, a very full order book, and an upcoming move to an almost 500sqm (5000 sq. ft.) facility, these efficiency and process gains have come at a critical time in our companies road map.
The ISO9001 accreditation is awarded on consistent, company-wide quality assurance – from our internal processes and management to our customer engagement and output. The certification process involves a thorough analysis of our business’ internal procedures by an accredited 3rd party auditor. Blueprint Lab was required to prove our quality assurance in installation, production and service provision.
The seven primary Quality Management Principles as outlined by ISO include:
1. Customer Focus – Consistently meeting customer requirements and exceeding their expectations.
2. Leadership – Creating a unity of purpose and an environment where staff are engaged.
3. Engagement of People – Competent, empowered and engaged staff through all levels of our business.
4. Process Approach – Consistency achieved through standardised processes that are repeatable, efficient and effective.
5. Improvement – An ongoing focus on improvement throughout the business.
6. Evidence-based Decision Making – Basing decisions on an evaluation of data, alternate options and evidence available.
7. Relationship management – Maintaining good relationships with clients, partners, and suppliers.
