We Are an ISO 9001 Certified Company
Quality is our first priority
Since 2018, APSS has attained the coveted certification for ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System (QMS). A globally recognised standard, it attests to our ability to consistently provide products and services that meet the highest statutory and regulatory requirements at every stage of the procurement process.
The aggregate of all the processes, resources, assets, and values that support the twin goals of customer satisfaction and organisational efficiency, our workflows are audited against the ISO requirements by the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB). With a presence in over 80 countries, ANAB is also the largest ISO accreditation body in the western hemisphere.
By guiding all levels of management as well as departments within APSS in understanding what our clients truly need, the ISO protocols continue to empower us in delivering solutions and services that cater fully to your requirements.
Peace of Mind
Getting ISO-certified signifies that an enterprise or organisation has met international standards of practice. For every existing or prospective APSS client, this means assurance that every task we undertake has been designed to conform with the rigorous standards demanded by an effective quality management system.
When implemented flawlessly, the ISO approach can create a perfect value chain by optimising resources. Through process integration, we can eliminate inefficiencies and reduce wastage by streamlining our workflows to drive productivity. The value and savings we achieve as a result are passed on, directly or indirectly, to our clients.
In addition to sets out standardised requirements for every job role and department within APSS, ISO 9001:2015 requirements also instil a company culture that is aimed towards continuous improvement. This leads to improved services and solutions that enable us to meet the expectations of our clients.
A MESSAGE FROM OUR M.D
Managing Director, APSS
These are truly extraordinary times that we live in. Emerging technologies such as machine learning, predictive analytics, blockchain and IoT are not only changing the way businesses operate but also how they source, buy and track their spend. COVID-19 has also demonstrated that resiliency and sustainability are just as important as cost efficiency, if not more, when it comes to ensuring continuity in supply chain systems. Over the next decade, I believe that procurement will become more of a strategic asset than a corporate function with third-party supply chain companies such as APSS acting as a crucial extension of in-house procurement teams. That is why as the owner and managing director of APSS, I have found purpose and satisfaction in servicing every client and every order that comes through our doors. Our aspiration is to walk the talk by helping every enterprise we work with to unlock their maximum value through simpler, smarter, and more strategic purchasing. After all, what’s more satisfying than turning procurement into possibilities?
