There’s no doubt about the competitive nature of business, marketing and advertising bombard us constantly, but increasing sales isn’t just about marketing and advertising, it’s not even about having a great product or service. Despite the internet, AI and the increasing role of technology, buying decisions are predominantly made by humans, and to sell to humans (more than once!) you have to gain their trust and show you can consistently meet their requirements.

That’s where ISO 9001 can actually give you and your business some value. It’s not just documents and bureaucracy, its about having a structured way of managing your business, and it can be a powerful tool in helping you gain a competitive edge and close more deals.
