Alert eBusiness, a local leader in interactive design and software development, has been awarded ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001 certification. It is the first local IT company to obtain both of these certifications and this achievement marks an important phase in the company's development.
ISO 9001:2008 is an internationally recognised quality management certification system.
"This is a remarkable achievement for Alert. Gaining ISO 9001 certification of our Quality Management System demonstrates our commitment to providing the best possible services to our clients. It is also an important milestone in reaching our strategic objectives as we aim to reinforce our position as market leaders locally and also to expand internationally." said Claudine Cassar, Managing Director.
"Through ISO 9001 certification, Alert will become more competitive since we will be focused on the areas of the business that affect quality, efficiency and customer satisfaction. Having ISO certification not only makes Alert more competitive, but it also makes our products and services more marketable - advantages that we recognize," said Marthese Portelli, Business Development Manager.
ISO 14001 relates to environmental management systems. It helps organizations identify the impact and risks associated with carbon emissions, energy and water use and waste stream management, and develop programs to control and improve these areas.
"The decision to seek ISO 14001 certification shows Alert's commitment to minimizing the impact of our operations and products on the environment. Receiving this certification is the culmination of a rigorous process that began over a year ago and required the company to conduct a thorough review of every aspect of our operations. It involves a detailed process by which we identified potential environmental impacts. Going forward we will use a process of continuous improvement to develop plans to eliminate or minimize those impacts and promote sustainable processes," says Stephanie Cacopardo, Compliance Officer.
"We believe in effectively contributing to a greener society. This is one of the reasons why we have invested in ISO 14001. The ISO process provides us with a platform that helps us to go beyond compliance. All-in-all it will help us to establish future sustainability goals and to reduce further our impact on the environment," says Claudine Cassar, Managing Director.
