Safety, quality environmental considerations and process rigour are critical to everything we do at AIS, but there is no need to take our word for it. AIS has been externally re-certified to TickITplus/ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 as proof of our continuing commitment to high standards across all three areas.
AIS is one of just a handful of companies operating in our sector as safety monitoring and control automation specialists globally, to be externally accredited to accreditations TickITplus in addition to ISO 9001:2015. This is a testament to our rigorous standards and a very strong indicator of the systems integration excellence we achieve for our clients on complex projects.
Simon Burras, Managing Director at Applied Industrial Systems said, “We are delighted to have become re-certified for both ISO 9001:2015 and TickITplus and believe it really differentiates AIS as an integrator of complex and often disparate critical safety systems.”
ISO9001 & TickITplus
We have been externally certified to ISO 9001 since 1994 and the company was an early adopter of the additional TickITplus standard for software developers. We were re-certified ISO9001 and for TickITplus in 2018.
Achieving ISO 9001:2015 quality management approval means AIS has demonstrated the ability to:
1) consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements; and
2) enhance customer satisfaction through the application of processes for improvement of the company’s systems.
AIS are also certified as a TickITplus software developer. This is an additional certification relevant to the supply of IT and software systems.
When the TickIT sector scheme was introduced in the early 1990s it served to fill the gap in providing software trained assessors/auditors and the infrastructure needed to certify software development organisations to ISO 9001.
TickITplus was added later to add a Capability Dimension to the existing TickIT scheme full certification at the highest levels of process capability, with the rigors imposed and the recognition gained.
Receiving this award sets us apart from other system integrators and software developers. TickITplus is much more than just a software development certification scheme, it demonstrates that AIS offers a flexible, multi-level approach to software development and IT quality that adheres to multiple international IT standards.
