Asset ManagementDo you think your business can survive without an ISO 55000 certification?

Today’s business landscape is competitive and digital — and is basically up for grabs by anyone and everyone. While it’s easy to start an enterprise, being an industry leader is what sets apart the businesses that are around 5 years later.

So how do you gain certification? Do you buy the latest equipment? Do you upgrade what you have? Do you do everything on the PAS 55 checklist?

Most companies get caught up in the details of meeting certification with technology and processes — but forget that there is an effective way to preparing for certification. Here are the top 4 techniques or things you need to do if you want your company to get certified:

1. Don’t let technology become a burden.

Keeping your technology upgraded and workings monthly may seem like the biggest burden when it comes to certification. But what you should do is make your equipment and tech work for you. Using fixed asset management software can help you use the same equipment you’re entertaining.

2. Use a strategy instead of a checklist.

Instead of checking on things and creating a table or matrix, why not employ a strategy? This way, you can better create efforts to reduce failures and prevent mishaps during your certification process.

3. Your contingency plans should be as faultless as possible.

Companies tend to think that the smoothness of their own processes is what makes the difference when it’s actually the way companies handle mishaps that’s important. Preventive measures and being able to adapt and save assets is what can get you your certification.

Don’t think of a certification as a burden or a necessary hurdle — it’s actually a way to enforce excellence and say that your company is as good as industry leaders.
