TickIT Certification

The TickIT scheme is an ISO 9000 management system certification for software producers and service suppliers. It is geared toward organizations where the primary business activity is the development and distribution of software products, the operation of data centers or the provision of information services. The scheme provides best practices for design, development and support throughout the software development lifecycle. SGS is a trusted leader in software quality assurance certification, including TickIT.

A TickIT management system enables you to optimize your software development and support operation by reducing malfunctions, late deliveries and unexpectedly high maintenance costs. Independent, third party SGS Tick IT auditors provide practical ways to continuously improve your operation while demonstrating your commitment to delivering a high quality software product.

SGS is a trusted leader in third party audit and certification services. As a supplier or provider of software products and services, certifying your quality management systems against the TickIT requirements enables you to:

  • Reduce the risk of system malfunctions and downtime
  • Improve the effectiveness of your product / services
  • Understand your customers' needs at every stage of their product life cycle 
  • Provide for continual improvement, resulting in improved product quality and repeatability 
  • Develop a framework to control schedule, cost and testing considerations

Your TickIT audit is conducted by a team of SGS software specialists who have been trained and registered as TickIT Auditors or Lead TickIT Auditors. Their proven expertise in the software development industry assures you that they understand your business and provides you with the most efficient and professional service possible. When your audit is complete, you will have a clear picture of the strengths of your operation and areas where modifications will lead to increased customer satisfaction and an improved bottom line.

When you partner with SGS for your Tick IT certification you benefit from the experience of a respected global leader in audits and certification. Contact us to learn more about the TickIT certification process.
