Get Sparta ERP and qualify for your ISO 9001 certification!
Updated: Jan 20
ISO or International Standards Organization is an institution that lays out rules and regulations through the development of a specific set of standards that is accepted on an international scale.
Based in Geneva, Switzerland, the company was established in 1947 as an independent, non-governmental organization in an effort to curb the gaps in quality standards between nations.
Over the years, ISO has become one of the go-to institutions for companies that are trying to establish themselves as leaders in their respective industries. Many enterprises believe that an ISO certification is the stepping stone to creating the ‘trust factor’ that clients look for when deciding to look for business partners.
In Ethiopia, many companies have taken the steps to acquire ISO certification, especially ISO 9001. The latter, as quoted by the International Standards Organization, “sets out the criteria for a quality management system”. Although vaguely described here, the ISO 9001 certification encompasses quality management principles such as “strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement.”
The business benefits brought upon by this particular ISO certification are huge. It is for this reason that many companies seek out experts to try and address any requirements deemed necessary for ISO 9001. Although not pointed out as a requirement, having functioning enterprise software like an ERP is beneficial towards acquiring IOS 9001 certification.
An ERP brings to an organization formalization and standardization of processes. It helps to centralize every business process and offers visibility across the value chain. Starting off on the right foot can significantly boost your chances of being ISO certified. Some ERPs even offer a Quality Management System (QMS) as a module. This boosts the prospects even further.

With Sparta, you will have your QMS supported by an efficient Warehouse Management System, Maintenance Follow-Up, and tying it all together with a Dashboard supported Finance module.
