CASE STUDY: Propel Tech

Propel Tech achieves ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 with Compliant.

Why Propel Tech decided to invest in ISO 9001 and ISO 27001

We are delighted to share that software provider Propel Tech has successfully achieved ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 with Compliant. Propel Tech is a software development company that creates valuable technology, systems and partnerships using existing and new technologies.

The UK based business recently decided to invest in ISO certification to support business growth and deliver the highest quality services to customers.

We interview Propel Tech’s Operations Director Chris Kirkham to hear his thoughts on the business’ recent achievement.

“Implementing globally recognised quality and information security certifications has been a long-standing objective for the company.

We have had our own quality team in place now for quite some time and wanted to test our service provision, showing clients that we take quality seriously.

ISO 9001 is the industry’s most highly regarded quality management system (QMS) standard. We have achieved this by building a framework of processes and procedures that ensure consistent quality when providing services to our clients.

ISO 27001 is the global standard for effective information management. This shows our clients and stakeholders that we take serious steps to protect data and avoid potentially costly security breaches.

As an IT based business we understand the value of these certifications, particularly ISO 27001. As part of our business growth strategy, we are hoping to use these certifications to apply for larger contracts and access government platforms. Having ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 will put us in a much stronger position to do this.”

The Process

Chris went onto to explain “We knew that we wanted to implement ISO because of its reputation, global coverage and the support it would give us in accessing government portals.

To get started we researched certification bodies and consultants. After this initial research we discovered the benefits of UKAS accredited certification and decided to progress with the British Assessment Bureau and Compliant.”

Although we were new to ISO, Mark from Compliant guided us through the entire process. He answered any questions that we had and ensured we had everything in place ahead of audits. We were very happy with the service from Compliant and have opted for post certification support.”

The Outcome

On the outcome Chris added “We’re over the moon to say we have been awarded ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 accreditations.

We set out to achieve these accreditations to demonstrate our commitment to consistently high standards and industry-leading quality in everything we do.”

Compliant Director Mark Henderson commented “A huge well done to Chris and the team on this fantastic achievement. We are delighted that Propel Tech have successfully gained their certifications and have opted for post certification support with Compliant. We will be supporting them going forward and be working collaboratively to deliver the outcomes set out in their integrated management system.

Having ISO certifications in place will put them in a great position to demonstrate the quality of their service delivery, apply for government portal work and access larger contracts.”
