Documented processes, ongoing evaluation and continuous improvement: these are the hallmarks of quality in product development. After months of work and a rigorous audit process, PlateSmart Technologies has been recognised for its commitment to quality with ISO 9001:2015 certification.
“ISO 9001 certification is the international gold standard for excellence in quality management,” said John Chigos, CEO, PlateSmart. “Our customers and technology partners already know the high-quality standards to which we hold our license plate recognition (LPR) solutions — the original software-only LPR solutions. This certification is just another way we continue to set an example for LPR industry.”
ISO 9001 is a set of quality-management standards developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Compliance with ISO 9001 means a company has documented processes for product development, deployment and support that ensure customer expectations are met. It also ensures that the company routinely evaluates these processes and implements improvements as necessary.
PlateSmart worked with Perry Johnson Registrars, an accredited third-party certification body, which after conducting a two-stage initial quality management system process-based audit, granted the company ISO 9001:2015 certification.
“ISO 9001 is more than a certification — it is a mindset,” Chigos said. “PlateSmart is committed to quality and continuous improvement every day. The certification also helps bring standardisation to the entire industry by keeping companies honest in their claims and avoiding misleading statements such as ‘99-plus percent accuracy.’”
