Sep. 2, 2015 / PRZen / HOUSTON — Qualaco Inc., a Texas-based Quality Management consulting firm and experts in helping companies achieve certification in various International Standards, recently announced its involvement in assisting global Procurement Group Conkor International – also based in the Houston, Texas area – with implementing an Integrated Quality Management System to achieve ISO 14001 and OSHAS 18001 Certification. With a flawless Third Party Audit performed by DEKRA Certification, the goal for Qualaco representatives heading this project is to help Conkor realize the myriad of benefits associated with an Integrated Quality Management System.

“ISO 14001 maps out a framework that a company or organization can follow to set up an effective Environmental Management System,” explains Qualaco Inc. spokesperson Marie Giordano. “OHSAS – or Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems – 18001 refers to an internationally-applied British Standard for these systems, and exists to assist all types of organizations put in place demonstrably sound occupational health and safety performance. As an International Procurement Group utilizing innovation and technology to deliver products and services in a timely fashion, Conkor International was the perfect fit for these two types of certification…and Qualaco is excited to be working with this company as we divulge just how rich the benefits of an Integrated Quality Management System can be.”

According to Giordano and other Qualaco representatives, an Integrated Quality Management System enables a business entity to examine each of its processes to discover any variations from standards, take corrective action and ultimately make quality improvements. Additionally, say Qualaco reps, an Integrated Quality Management System acts as the blueprint of sorts for documenting, monitoring and auditing a company’s processes and systems to meet its objectives and goals; identifying stakeholders to create process improvement teams; establishing quality standards that are customized for the specific business for the purpose of meeting and exceeding customer expectations; saving time and money by reducing downtime, rework, negative customer feedback (i.e. complaints), returns and costs of unnecessarily excessive warranty repairs; offering tools to suggest employees take responsibility for their own work processes and make an effort to participate in the quality improvement process and more.

“Qualaco is different because we are passionate about what we do,” concludes Giordano. “With over 50 years combined experience in Quality, Environment and Safety System Management and boasting a professional team that’s highly advanced in Lean Six Sigma Methodology and Root Cause Analysis, we provide customized solutions to meet the specific needs of each of our valued clients.”
