Thursday, March 9, 2006 — Fulcrum IT Services Company*, a value added reseller and information technology systems integrator, today announced that it has acheived ISO 9001:2000 registration from BSI, Inc., a quality management systems registration.
The ISO 9001:2000 standards, is an internationally recognized quality management system standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). To be registered to the standard, companies must implement a quality management system (QMS) that encompasses every aspect of their operations—from staff development to the delivery of end-products and services. This is done by using the principles of Process Management, which demonstrates the steps taken to provide customers the services pledged by Fulcrum IT. ISO 9001:2000 registration reinforces to customers through an independent third-party, that Fulcrum IT operates a QMS in accordance with the standard.
"Fulcrum IT has always been committed to providing the highest levels of service excellence," stated Jeff Handy, Fulcrum IT's President. "We are proud to be ISO 9001:2000 registered. This demonstrates that our focus remains on quality, world-class performance, and continuous monitoring of our business operations to ensure that we deliver on the promises we make to our customers, employees, and vendors."
Fulcrum IT began its registration process in July of 2005. As part of the ISO 9001 process, BSI performed on-site assessments, examined Fulcrum IT's documented procedures, and audited its overall operations. To determine continued compliance with ISO 9001:2000, BSI will periodically conduct routine surveillance audits of Fulcrum IT's business operations.
"The company had developed and implemented many processes throughout the years, but had only undertaken the process improvement necessary to achieve the ISO Standards in July of 2005," stated Anthony Simmons, Fulcrum IT's Quality Manager. "Fulcrum IT employees labored diligently to update their processes while other impartial employees performed internal audits to insure conformance with the improvement plan. This was an incredible undertaking in such a short period of time and is a testament to Fulcrum IT's commitment to process and quality that the company has lived by since its inception. We are very proud to have gained this coveted registration."
By earning this ISO 9001:2000 registration, Fulcrum IT is further demonstrating its commitment to quality. By formalizing their documentation and using ISO 9001:2000 as an extra set of eyes, Fulcrum IT will be able to improve quality and remain at the cutting edge of their industry. The company's employees are committed and use well organized processes—ISO 9001:2000 registration can only serve to improve an already top-of-the-line business.
