Category: ISO 9001 Certification Kits


We've been keen admirers of 9001Simplified ever since they introduced their first in-house certification kit over a decade ago. The kit is affordable, easy to use, and refreshingly free of bureaucracy. Best of all, it works. Thousands of companies worldwide have used the kit to implement a fully operational ISO 9001 system and achieve certification. We've had the kit independently assessed by quality management consultants in Singapore and America, and vouch for its efficacy.

If you're a small or medium-sized organization looking to implement ISO 9001 in-house, we encourage you to make 9001Simplified your first port of call.

Category: Software


The world has changed a lot since 2020 and the Covid pandemic. Remote consultancy and remote ISO 9001 training are the new norms, and may remain so for years to come.

Numerous video conferencing platforms exist, and it's far from easy to recommend a particular solution. In our opinion though, Zoom is currently the leader of the pack. The software is easy to use, offers crisp video and audio quality, is affordable, and comes packed with a set of features that enhance online collaboration.

Plexus International

If your company is planning to set up an ISO 9001 System, staff training is usually essential. In its most basic form, training might involve explaining to low-level employees the benefits of an ISO 9001 system. This is called "employee buy-in".

Training can also help enthuse top management to create more responsible leadership and involvement, as well as teach your company's internal auditors how to implement an effective audit program. Plexus International offers a broad spectrum of ISO training solutions, all of which we endorse. The feedback we get from these courses is resoundingly positive.
