Your organisation's key operational processes will rely on IT, so changes within these processes require changes to the IT systems - affecting hardware, software, communications and support - this is defined as IT service management. Gaining ISO 20000 certification with LRQA helps you to focus on delivering effective IT services to users.
The period for transitioning to ISO/IEC 2000-1 has been extended to 30 March 2022.
Remote audits provide you with a fast and flexible way to maintain your audit schedule. They help reduce carbon footprint associated with travel, as well as health and safety risks for people working on hazardous sites or hard to reach areas. Outcomes are consistent with onsite audits, so the integrity of your audit and accredited certification remains the same.
Benefits of ISO 20000
Brand reputation and credibility
Implementing ISO 20000 and gaining certification with LRQA, enables your organisation to demonstrate that your IT services are aligned to industry best practice. The standard is based on the work completed by the Office of Government Commerce (OGC) and the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL). This provides your customers with confidence that your IT services are following a framework that is internationally accepted.
ISO 20000 certification can help improve your organisation’s reputation and set you aside from the competition. By building credibility and trust in your ability to manage your IT services effectively, it can elevate your organisation when looking for new business opportunities.
ISO 20000 will enable your organisation to adopt a comprehensive approach that will ensure you have the necessary policies, procedures and processes in place to deliver effective IT services. By having efficient processes in place, it ultimately means you are providing a streamlined service to meet your customer needs.
ISO 20000 makes sure all employees are clear about who does what and when, ensuring your people and processes are under control and working towards the same goal. This not only makes sure your products and services are delivered to meet customer expectations, it also enables you to manage and optimise costs.
With ISO 20000 being management system based, implementing the standard requirements ensures your organisation follows a process-based approach, which continually improves your management system and business at the same time.
The standard ensures your IT services are regularly monitored and reviewed, enabling your organisation to respond to any organisational changes. This supports the continual improvement of your IT service management system against critical goals and objectives.
