ISO-certified companies all say the cost and effort to become certified is well worth it! 

As the cannabis industry becomes more competitive, a growing number of cannabis companies are looking for ways to differentiate their operations, whether that means offering value-added services or implementing the latest lean techniques. 

One best practice that many of today's leading shop's tout is ISO 9001 certification. The ISO standard is based on implementing seven quality management principles, including a strong customer focus, Evidence-based decision making, and continuous improvement. 

The basic goal of the ISO 9001 standard is to help companies provide customers with consistent, good quality products and services, which, in turn, often brings business benefits like improved financial performance. 

ISO standards are certain to help you increase profitability by

  • Improving the quality of your goods and services
  • Enhancing your credibility and build consumer confidence
  • Cutting the business costs of poor service and reduce customer complaints 
  • Processes will be aligned and understood by everyone in the business which increases productivity and efficiency, bringing internal costs down
  • Helping you comply with regulations

Establishing and maintaining a documented quality system means you'll deliver what you say you will when you say you will. That ultimately leads to sustained customer satisfaction because you'll create fewer defective parts and have fewer delays. Also, as your efficiencies increase, so too will your profits.
