New financial year, new ISO certification?

There are many times in any given year that as a business, we can feel the surge of new or fresh starts – and the new financial year is one of them.



As well as getting your books and accounting in order, you may look ahead to a new financial year of trading with an upbeat sense of optimism. There will be new challenges this coming year, as well as plenty of opportunities. Is gaining ISOs one of them?

What ISOs mean for your business?

There are many benefits to your brand carrying an ISO mark alongside its name;

Promote best practices

You are a cutting-edge business with a view to making changes in your industry. Being able to identify and execute ways of doing things better that save money, improve a product and your reputation is a fantastic vehicle to grow your business. And an ISO related accreditation proves your point.

Improve productivity

Productivity, quality, overheads and financial pressures are all linked, with one feeding the others. Improving how well you produce products and services is key to expanding your business and remaining financially competitive. An ISO accreditation can be a positive force for change.

Happy customers!

A lean, productive business is one thing, but happy consumers are quite another. Imagine the message an ISO accreditation sends to customers (and stakeholders and competitors) that you can reach consistently high standards in key business areas?

Improves profit and revenue streams

Your business isn’t necessarily all about the money but there can be no denying that stable revenue streams and a healthy profit margin are what makes your business tick. A 2015 analysis of 92 studies that looked at business performance of companies with ISO accreditations found that three in five of them increased their revenues. ISOs are a great investment, and worth the effort.

New market opportunities

To expand your business, you need to tap into new markets. But getting a foothold can be tough. You need to emphasise and magnify your achievements, as well as what you have on offer. With an ISO accreditation, you send all the right messages across all markets because they are an accolade that speaks a universal language.

Pulling together

Imagine if you had the magic formula that produces better job satisfaction and less absenteeism, reduced staff turnover, improved motivation and boosted manager-employee relations. A 2012 research review found that the process of gaining ISO accreditation produced all this and more within a staff team.

All sizes, all sectors, all industries

In some ways, the language of ISO accreditations is standard and understood across a range of industries and sectors. And yet, they can also be highly specialised. But any business, no matter how big or small can tap into the benefits of ISO accreditation meaning a levelling of the playing field.

Is an ISO accreditation something that is on the cards for your business this financial year?

Completed my Masters in Business Administration (MBA) in 2012 I was looking to start my own business. With over 10 years improving and streamlining business systems, I grasped an opportunity to assist a local business to improve their quality and communication processes by researching the requirements of a quality management system based upon ISO 9001 and conducted my first internal audit that resulted in 97 improvement recommendations. After a successful outcome, I was recommended again and again with glowing reviews and in February 2014, Synergos Consultancy was born. I now have the role of regularly reviewing and planning the strategic direction of the business to ensure that Synergos continues to develop, whilst at the same time, still actively working closely with some of our clients. In my spare time I love to attend the theatre to watch musicals, dance productions and plays. In 2019, I attended the theatre a whopping 24 times. I follow a plant-based diet which I absolutely love. A keen tick-tock follower, I have picked up a lot of interesting recipes. A firm favourite is Brussel sprouts and sriracha sauce baked in the oven. Delicious!
