INFORMATION MAPPING SIMPLIFIES ISO 9000 CERTIFICATION PROCESS; ISO 9000 MAPS SERIES TARGETS GROWING GLOBAL MARKETPLACE

 WALTHAM, Mass., Jan. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- To support the increasing number of global companies seeking ISO 9000 certification, Information Mapping, Inc. today introduced its ISO 9000 MAPS series, a complete set of services that provides organizations with the necessary framework and tools to more quickly and cost-effectively achieve ISO 9000 certification. Information Mapping, a pioneer and leading supplier of information management services, builds on its success in providing dozens of Fortune 500 companies with the infrastructure to increase overall productivity and improve quality systems.
 Information Mapping offers ISO 9000 MAPS (Management and Performance Services) through its Team ISO, a diverse group of experts in the ISO certification process that cooperatively works with an organization's internal resources throughout the certification process.
 For more than 20 years Information Mapping has been working with global organizations to improve productivity by developing and using standards for information management. With an extensive background in ISO 9000 compliance, Information Mapping's Team ISO applies this foundation to assist companies in quickly and successfully obtaining ISO 9000 certification and registration at their first audit.
 According to Pecten Chemicals president J.S. Dragonetti, "Information Mapping provided the framework for Pecten Chemicals' quality documentation and contributed towards our ability to achieve ISO registration within one year."
 ISO 9000 is a recognized worldwide standard for quality systems in industry. There are more than 600 U.S. companies currently certified in ISO 9000, and its impact is quickly gaining momentum worldwide. Industry analysts predict that between 300,000 and 550,000 plus U.S.- based companies will seek certification in the next several years.
 Companies in most industries today -- including manufacturing, pharmaceutical, oil and gas, insurance, and government -- acknowledge ISO 9000 as a model for developing a quality system that focuses on procedures, documentation, regulatory and internal compliance, and controlled processes. When implemented, these procedures ensure both companies and their customers a level of predictability -- guaranteeing compliance with contractual requirements.
 "ISO 9000 certification is fast becoming a de facto prerequisite for doing business and competing globally," said Don Sullivan, vice president of Information Mapping. "And Information Mapping aims to be to ISO certification what ISO 9000 compliance is to international business -- a standard prerequisite.
 "Information Mapping's extensive ISO 9000 experience is an invaluable resource for companies approaching the certification process. With our proven team-oriented approach, companies can achieve ISO 9000 certification the first time, reducing costs, increasing productivity and saving valuable corporate resources," Sullivan added.
 Team ISO provides an overview of the entire process and assists organizations in understanding, demystifying and managing the ISO 9000 certification process. Most importantly, Team ISO's team of experts provides valuable expertise in documentation, a critical component for ISO 9000 certification/registration. In a recent 12-month period, nearly half of all the companies that applied for certification failed because of documentation issues.
 Information Mapping's ISO 9000 MAPS series is comprised of modules which work together to create a start-to-finish package of services. Companies have the option of implementing the full program, or Information Mapping will work with companies to create a customized approach to meet their specific needs. The program series includes:
 -- Management Briefing
 -- ISO 9000 Quality System/Documentation Preliminary
 Audits
 -- ISO 9000 Baseline Workshop
 -- Corrective Action and Strategy Sessions
 -- Documentation Training
 -- Documentation Development Consulting
 -- Pre-certification Audit
