Dual Certification for The Production Hub
March 15, 2017 Nick Hames

The Production Hub, print management and direct mail specialists are proud to announce we have attained certification for ISO quality management (9001) and ISO information security management (27001).

“I was very impressed with The Production Hub. They had a great attitude towards security, risk and process management.  The commitment shown by The Production Hub has been exemplary and has ensured that certification to ISO 9001 and 27001 has been a seamless process.”

Allan Baskerville, CQS, Lead Assessor

With GDPR regulations coming into force in just over a year and the increasingly frequent failures of organisations to secure customer data, it is more important than ever to choose suppliers carefully. Customer or donor contact data is one of the most sacred resources of any business or charity. According to recent research from Royal Mail and Data IQ the impact of poor quality data on marketing performance is running at a phenomenal 6% of revenue on average. So the challenge for marketers is to pick suppliers who understand the regulations, have policies and processes in place to manage security and help improve the quality of campaigns. Working with 27001 certified suppliers such as The Production Hub provides marketers with the reassurance that a demanding, externally validated information security management standard is in place.

 “These certifications are an important milestone for us. We deal with high profile donor data every day and it is imperative we maintain the chain of custody of that data securely and professionally. We have always gone further than most by keeping data processing in house and only providing our production partners with finished “print ready” artwork. These accreditations give charities and business that extra bit of confidence in choosing The Production Hub for print and direct mail.”

Nick Hames, MD, The Production Hub

The Production Hub Difference

Unlike most print management businesses, The Production Hub have a fully equipped data services and artwork production team in house. This team improve the quality of the data by running a complimentary health check on every job, screening it for duplicates, deceased and do not mail lists, then generating fully variable, dynamic artwork for each campaign. Providing these services in house means raw data doesn’t need to be passed to direct mail houses and printers for production. The fewer times data is passed from supplier to supplier, the more secure the supply chain becomes.
