The internationally recognised Quality Management System standard
JLG Group PLC has achieved ISO 9001:2015 global certification - the internationally recognised Quality Management System standard and ISO 22301/2012 Business Continuity Management certification which will both help underpin the next stage of its development.
BSI, the UK’s leading certification body carried out the thorough company-wide audit process and assessments and Carla Whyte, Senior Client Propositions Manager at BSI said: “The Just Loans Group should be proud they have achieved certification to ISO 9001 and ISO 22301.
By implementing both they have put in place effective management processes and structured continuity plans that will help them improve performance and respond efficiently to any disruption. This is testament to their commitment of putting customer service at the heart of their business.”
The Just Loans Group is the parent company of the award winning Just Cash Flow PLC which specialises in providing revolving cash facilities to SMEs to assist with smoothing the peaks and troughs of working capital. It has invested heavily in building a multi-language, currency and jurisdictional lending platform that uses proprietary underwriting technology, which is invisible to the end customer but harvests information that enables smart lending decisions.
To maximise returns on this investment future plans now include widening the product range and expanding into other European countries.
To gain the ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management certification a complete audit of all business processes was undertaken and carefully documented; consolidating the creation of an integrated management system. The process includes regular quality reviews and continuous improvement programmes.
The ISO 22301:2012 - Business Continuity Management certification involved a thorough review and audit of existing Business Continuity plans to ensure they could prevent or mitigate any disruption to customers and other stakeholders, in the event of a ‘disaster’ scenario.
CEO John Davies says,”We felt it important for the company to have the thorough independent scrutiny that comes with these ISO certifications to take on suggestions for further improving and documenting everything we do.
“It is even more important that this certification provides our customers, business partners and investors with confidence that they are dealing with an organisation that insists on the highest possible internal standards.
“One option for us in the future is to apply to list on AIM and these certifications will be very helpful in that process.”
