Above & Beyond News from The Common Source | November 2010
In the Long Run.  

When you are pressed for time and money, it’s easy to only consider short-term objectives. However, making quick, uniformed decisions on a project without thoroughly considering the consequences can lead to long-term quality and financial nightmares. At The Common Source, we understand your need to meet deadlines and budget constraints, but believe quality should not be compromised.

There are numerous ways The Common Source ensures high quality products and services for our clients, and being ISO 9001:2008 certified is one of them. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certification states that we have developed and implemented a quality management system that consistently provides a product that meets customer satisfaction. Additionally, this means we are independently audited to be in conformance with ISO standards and our quality management system.  

Because The Common Source is certified to the ISO 9001:2008 standard, we have the following advantages:

• Deliver a uniform and consistent product
• Eliminate unnecessary steps 
• Enhance productivity 
• Improve employee dedication and capabilities
• Increase customer satisfaction and retention 
• Produce more efficient and effective operations
• Reduce mistakes

This allows you to save time and money in the long run! 

With The Common Source, you don’t risk the embarrassment of inconsistent and inaccurate work. We have been ISO certified since 2005 and proudly continue to deliver excellent results to our clients. Our two cents is that you shouldn’t lower your standards to save two cents. 

Before you consider another company to handle your document management needs, remember lower quality work will cost you more in the long run. To learn more about The Common Source’s quality standards, please click here. [http://www.commonsource.com/company/ourstandards/]

Finding a Way. 
The Common Source proudly supports the Texas EquuSearch Mounted Search and Recovery Team, a non-profit organization founded with the purpose to provide volunteer horse mounted search and recovery for lost and missing individuals. We contribute to this great cause by donating 5% of revenue generated from projects received from Houston Corporate Paralegal Association members. As a result, we have donated more than $73,000 in the last four years.
