The ISO 9001:2008 QMS certification confirms Sizwe IT Group's qualifications, expertise and infrastructure to meet a myriad requirements. These include comprehensive hardware, software and service turnkey solutions in infrastructure, end-user, server, network and back-office arenas. It includes scope, design, project implementation, support, maintenance and optimisation with no exclusions. The new standard outlines a process approach to implementing and supporting a quality management system with increased involvement by top management.

Sizwe, a Level 2 BBBEE contributor, successfully achieved its ISO certification in February, which is valid until 2016. "We are very proud of this achievement; it ensures that we will continue to add value to our clients. Delivering excellence together," says Minderd Spoelstra, Executive Technology Solutions, Sizwe IT Group.

An ISO certification holds many long-term benefits for both Sizwe IT Group and its clients:

* Consistent and standardised processes and systems - defining and documenting procedures; identifying current practices that are obsolete or inefficient; improving consistency of results, allowing for corrective action to be taken as and when required.
* Defects are detected early - reducing failures in service or product quality as well as cutting the cost of reoccurring problems.
* Business development and new markets - retaining or increasing market share as a result of increased sales and revenues.
* Better control and reporting - knowing how your business is doing.

"With this QMS in place, Sizwe IT Group focuses on quality goals, while management is provided with data on a continual basis in order to track progress, or lack thereof, and take appropriate action," Spoelstra concludes.
