    Video From ISO Highlights The Value of ISO 9001:2015 for SMEs 

    We love to post (and create) great podcasts and videos on ISO quality standards.  This video clip from ISO.org called “ISO and SMEs” makes the case for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) certifying to the standard.  Need confidence?

     

     

    BIZPHYX is an ISO 9001 and TL 9000 certified WBE and SME.  We can certainly attest to the value of certifying to the standard, not only with clients, but also within our own organization.  As global consultants and training providers, ISO 90001 has helped us deliver consistent, high quality products and services to clients around the world.

    The latest revision of ISO 9001, ISO 9001:2015, presents a unique opportunity for SMEs, particularly those in the service industry, to embrace a level playing field.  The time is now.  The standard is ISO 9001.  Motivated?

    For more information on implementing ISO 9001:2015 or other ISO based standards like ISO 14001, ISO 27001 and TL 9000, contact info@bizphyx.com.

    We also assist clients with QMS maintenance services, internal auditing and quality management training on these and other ISO based standards.  Contact us for a complimentary quality review.

    Sue Clancy is in great company, as colleague JoAnn Brumit, CEO of Karlee, was also presented with the award.  Both Karlee and BIZPHYX are members of WBENC and both organizations are certified WBE’s.  Sue and JoAnn are examples of female CEOs in the ICT, setting the standard for others to emulate.  Congratulations to both.  It is an honor well deserved and certainly earned!

    AT&T Women Entrepreneurs’ Forum: Where Are They Now? 

    This blast from the past is a group photo that was taken of the AT&T Women Entrepreneurs’ Forum.  It’s an alumni photo of sorts, as the 2-year program (which concluded several years ago), brings back fond memories of collaboration and sharing best practices on future trends in ICT and telecommunications.

    We often run into many of these great female technology executives at other conferences, like the upcoming WBENC National Conference in Austin and recently at DiversityNXT and the ISM National Conference in early May.  We may see a couple of these ladies at the upcoming QuEST Forum Leadership Council and Work Groups in Dallas today!

    Miss you ladies and let’s keep driving innovation in the ICT industry!
