Following the company’s policy to strengthen competitive advantages on the international and local markets and to raise customers’ confidentiality, 8Sigma’s management decided to implement ISO certificates and to apply that project to the European Regional Development Fund.
The total project value is around 32 000 euros. According to the agreement that was signed a few months ago, the European Union will support its execution with 15 % of total acceptable costs that are related to the implementation of certificates according to international norms of quality management (ISO 9001:2015) and information security (ISO 27001:2013).
The number of software companies specialized in developing sophisticated programs is growing, along with technology and digital society development. That is why companies should continuously invest funds and knowledge in the improvement of products and services that will support them in gaining customers’ trust.
According to the co-funding agreement, the implementation project will be finished in the first half of 2021. By implementing ISO 9001:2015, 8Sigma will define internal rules of the way of how 8Sigma creates and delivers its products and services to the end customers. With ISO 27001:2013, the company will also be able to protect data on the highest level, to estimate possible risks of problematic outcomes of data usage, as well as to define convenient risk handling and problems preventing procedures.
8Sigma’s management board expects that the certification business processes, according to the highest international standards, will be a step forward in further positioning on the market and improvement of product and service quality.
