Cost-effective ISO 9001 certification

Business Sense at the Core

Merely fulfilling ISO 9001:2015 requirements is not the difficult part - but converting ISO 9001 requirements into processes that make your company more efficient... that's our special expertise.

We analyze each ISO 9001:2015 requirement from a business point of view. Then we design the most business-friendly processes that meet those requirements.

Every single procedure and instruction in our ISO 9001 materials was created with this question in mind: "How does this ISO 9001:2015 requirement serve the company and increase its efficiency?" This design choice is the foundation and core of the 9001Simplified System.


Contrary to popular opinion, ISO 9001 does not need to be bureaucratic paperwork. We prove this point through our ISO 9001 system that's fully ISO 9001:2015 compliant but liberated of bureaucracy and unnecessary paperwork.

each process and sub-process is analyzed and fine-tuned to eliminate bureaucracy

elimination of redundant paperwork and unnecessary references

streamlining or elimination of widely-used but inefficient processes

simplification through integration of required ISO 9001 documents

"Say no to paperwork and bureaucracy!" - it's another feature that sets us apart from common ISO 9001 documentation.

Broad Acceptance

As it is quite obvious how our unique system improves work processes, employees and managers alike generally appreciate our approach and readily accept and support their new ISO 9001 system. Broad support for ISO 9001 is not only a key factor in the success of your ISO 9001 system but also the foundation for a more productive workforce with less turnover.

Reduced Liability Exposure

Our ISO 9001 documentation templates were written in consultation with business attorneys in order to reduce your company's liability exposure. As a result, the following features have been included:

a process that helps protect you from excessive customer claims

a process to reduce liability exposure due to your suppliers' faults

refined wording - to minimize the risk that your ISO 9001 documentation is used against you in a legal case

Liability exposure can be a significant problem – our refined ISO 9001 procedures help mitigate this threat.

Easy to Do

ISO 9001 can be easy or difficult - depending on the tools you use and the expertise you tap. Countering a trend often fostered by consultants, 9001Simplified provides you with tools that are so easy to use that virtually anybody can implement and maintain a business-friendly ISO 9001 system by themselves - with all the benefits of doing it in-house.

Cost-effective ISO 9001 certification

Inexpensive Products

Our goal is to reverse the trend and make ISO 9001 a business management tool that improves quality and efficiency - not only for companies with large budgets but also for small and startup businesses. That's why all our products, ranging from ISO 9001 implementation tools to software to training, are priced so competitively.

Inexpensive Approach

ISO 9001 certification requires an investment in time and money but - if done right - payback makes it well worthwhile. 9001Simplified not only focuses on the payback side but also minimizes your investment.

Our approach to ISO 9001 is in-house implementation with the best support tools, ranging from our comprehensive ISO 9001 implementation kit to multimedia and online training. Not only is the initial investment significantly lower than when using a consultant, the resulting ISO 9001 system - when facilitated by a company insider - fits the company better and requires zero ongoing consulting fees.

Our system enables you to achieve ISO 9001 certification, make improvements to an existing ISO 9001 system and perform your ISO 9001 processes in less time. Contributing factors include:

The business benefits of our ISO 9001 procedures and instructions are obvious, so that your staff and management will find them easy and quick to adopt.

Our multimedia DVD courses and online training allow for effective learning without travel.

Ongoing Savings

Many companies focus on quick and easy ISO 9001 certification without realizing that the ISO 9001 quality management system will have a profound impact on business operations and, ultimately, profitability. We never lost sight of this all-important aspect and the fact that efficiency is key in any business.

A good ISO 9001 system increases efficiency and productivity - not create an operational burden. Our unique approach to ISO 9001 is lean, goal-oriented and highly efficient so that your ISO 9001 system achieves all its intended benefits while using up only minimal resources in terms of time and money.

Custom Fit

Utilizing an implementation kit and pre-written, customizable templates for ISO 9001 documentation can be the best approach to ISO 9001 if - and only if - those templates are fully customized to meet the unique situation of your company. 9001Simplified tackled this challenge head-on so that you can get a truly custom-fit ISO 9001 system.

ISO 9001 tailored to your needs

Unique Configuration Options

Is your company a service provider or a manufacturing company? Or maybe a combination? Single location? Multiple sites? Every company and organization is different - but we have the right product version for you.

Most of our products can be automatically configured to fit your individual needs - prior to purchase. Tailoring the ISO 9001 Certification Package to your company's individual circumstances allows not only for easier and faster ISO 9001 certification but also for a more effective quality management system. Configuration of the ISO 9001:2015 Upgrade Package even takes into account how much of your existing ISO 9001 system needs improvement.

We give you many options - because "one size never fits all".

Genuine Templates

Templates are the most common approach to developing ISO 9001 documentation (even consultants use them) because it's easy, fast and based on established best practices. The key to making the template approach work is customizing and adopting the templates to your company's individual circumstances so that the resulting ISO 9001 documentation truly and fully fits your needs.

Our templates are genuine templates - we developed them from ground up to be customized and individualized. Templates go hand-in-hand with the all-important customization instructions. Our customization instructions are detailed and extensive (not merely annotations within templates).

Our combination of genuine templates and extensive customization instructions facilitates the easy development of ISO 9001 documentation that fits your company's circumstances, its its work processes, its management style and its culture.

Options for Companies With Single and Multiple Locations

Our ISO 9001 implementation and upgrade products can be automatically configured not only for single-site companies but also for companies with multiple physical locations.

If your company has multiple physical locations, you will benefit enormously from our optional, multi-site setup which allows for a certain degree of autonomy at the local level while still ensuring compliance with corporate policy. The multi-site setup also ensures that you won't have to duplicate your ISO 9001 system for each site (which would be quite inefficient).

Process Format or Standard Format - Your Choice

Documentation forms the foundation of any ISO 9001 system. Even the documentation structure can impact the efficiency of your quality management system. To address different needs, our ISO 9001 implementation and upgrade products can be automatically configured to business-process format or standard format.

Our proprietary process structure is designed to mirror your business processes. The process format is particularly easy to use and quick to implement. In other words, a real business tool. The standard format is ideal for companies that want to integrate their ISO 9001 quality management system with another management system (for example, ISO 14001). Standard format adopts the structure and numbering system of the ISO 9001:2015 standard.

Quality You Can Trust

The quality of your ISO 9001 system has a profound impact on your company's operations, making it imperative to chose your supplier with care and diligence. Please compare us with others and make an informed decision.
