Full-service software development agency, Zudu, celebrates its recent attainment of the ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 certifications, coinciding with the company’s 10th anniversary. These internationally recognised standards for quality and data security (respectively) represent a significant milestone for the company and highlight Zudu’s commitment to meeting high standards of digital service delivery.

ISO 9001 is an international standard that focuses on enhancing customer satisfaction through the implementation of quality management systems (QMS) and the formation of clear processes that uphold high quality standards. This certification demonstrates an organisation’s ability to consistently provide products and services that meet regulatory and project requirements throughout the delivery and deployment phases, and Zudu’s certification validates its capability to provide high-quality solutions through operational efficiency.

ISO 27001 is an international benchmark for information security management systems (ISMS) and outlines the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an organisation’s data management processes. This certification demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to effectively managing and protecting sensitive information, ensuring confidentiality for personal and private data. Zudu’s compliance was audited as part of the certification process and achieved a first-time pass.

Reflecting on the company’s achievements, James Buchan, CEO of Zudu, said:

“As we approach Zudu’s milestone anniversary, we are also excited to celebrate our ISO certifications which are a monumental achievement for our company and team. These newly acquired certifications for quality and security management not only demonstrate our commitment to developing outstanding digital products but also serve as tangible proof of our adherence to internationally recognised standards, laws, and guidelines. They highlight Zudu’s ability to manage and safeguard sensitive client information while emphasising our dedication to excellence in service delivery – both locally and globally”.

Laura McTurk, Operations Director at Zudu, also added:

“Gaining ISO 9001 & 27001 certifications is a huge achievement for Zudu. It demonstrates our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of information security and quality management.

“This accreditation doesn’t just prove how dedicated we are to ensuring the security and quality of our products and services, but also enhances our credibility and trustworthiness in the eyes of our clients and partners. By adhering to these internationally recognised standards, we are in a great position to streamline our operations, mitigate risks, and continually improve our processes, ultimately delivering greater value and peace of mind to our stakeholders.”

Achieving ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 certifications is highly regarded in the software development industry as it demonstrates a company’s ability to align with modern globally recognised quality and security standards; standardise its processes; and improve efficiency to ensure consistency in product delivery. Furthermore, it helps mitigate risks associated with data breaches, security vulnerabilities, and quality issues – providing better long-term outcomes for clients.

Since its establishment in 2014, Zudu has supported a wide range of public and private sector organisations in creating successful digital strategies through custom mobile and web development. The company’s excellence has been consistently recognised by clients on review platforms such as Clutch and TechBehemoths and Zudu has also earned accolades as a Top UX/UI Design Company in the UK, a Leading Software Company in Scotland, and has secured a high position on the Clutch Global 1000. Alongside this, the company’s work has garnered recognition at prestigious awards, events, and conferences including COP26 and the Herald Digital Transformation Awards. Most notably, Zudu is currently taking part in the CivTech Accelerator Programme and working with the Scottish Government to develop a new tobacco register that enhances security and eliminates fraud.
