FARO is ISO-certified
The company has been a trusted corporate partner for modern companies that do not want to play with their business processes. For one, FARO is not only ISO 9001:2000-certified, but it has also been certified under ISO/IEC 17025:2005.
ISO 9000 certification is vital for global-operating companies since it means the company follows a set of standards of quality management systems as provided by the International Organization for Standardization or ISO. The requirements for the standards are changed over time depending on the need.
As ISO standardization is commonly applied in manufacturing, it has grown and is now used in a variety of organization and products including software and services. A company like FARO can claim to be ISO 9001-certified or 9001-registered if it has been audited and certified independently to be in conformance with the specified standards.
While an ISO-certification does not guarantee a precise quality of the services and end products provided by a company, it does nevertheless certifies that the formal business processes are being implemented which includes the keeping of adequate records, the monitoring of company processes to ensure their effectiveness, checking of defects and implementation of corrective measures among other.
With all these, FARO customers can expect that the company can provide a solution for their toughest inspection challenges, no matter if they are accessible in the company facility or wherever they need FARO's portable measurement solutions.
With FARO, a company can expect to get a free demonstration of its portable systems for 3D measuring as well as a reliable advice to help the company choose the best solutions for its needs.
