Research carried out by integrated marketing agency, KISS Communications has found that 62% believe that ISO quality accredited businesses have a better chance of succeeding. The survey questioned over 100 business professionals on a range of business, marketing and social media related issues. The KISS Communications Group has recently been accredited with BS EN ISO 9001:2008 for its Quality Management System. There are very few marketing and public relations agencies in the East of England to be awarded with this international standard according to Simon Fryer, Managing Director at KISS Communications. He said, “We are delighted to be accredited with BS EN ISO 9001. The findings of our research show that there is a strong correlation between the success of a business and having the essential quality systems in place to ensure the effective running of an orgaisation. Certification recognises not only quality management systems but also a commitment to process management, quality planning, and employee competence.” Simon continued, “KISS Communications has grown significantly over the last two years and we have enjoyed a number of account wins from blue chip businesses. Being able to demonstrate a quality management system is crucial when pitching to larger organisations and also gives reassurance to our existing clients that we have rigorous quality processes in place.” Justine Smith, PR Director at KISS Public Relations added, “Achieving the ISO certification demonstrates the capabilities of our company and gives KISS recognition for operating a quality management system with well defined procedures, efficient processes, clear objectives, and targets which are measurable by the results we deliver every day to our clients.” KISS Communications was established in 2007 and is already widely regarded as one of the East of England’s leading integrated agencies. Blue chip clients and successful SMEs alike have benefited from KISS’s distinctly simple, clear approach. Visit www.kisscom.co.uk for further information.
