Podfather’s steadfast commitment to information security sees it retain its ISO 27001 certification

Podfather, the route planning and electronic proof of delivery software specialist, is celebrating having retained its ISO 27001 certification status. The ISO 27001 accreditation is the internationally recognised standard in information security. When it comes to keeping information assets secure, companies can rely on software supplies who have achieved this ISO 27001 status.  

ISO 27001 accredited companies are renowned for providing a best in class Information Security Management System (ISMS) for the maintenance and control of information entrusted by third parties, in this case Podfather’s growing list of customers. Having first received the accolade in September 2019 the Podfather team is celebrating the retention of its ISO status having successfully completed this year’s stringent, independent, audit.

Podfather specialises in delivering software solutions that simplify the complex processes of planning, executing and managing the movements of vehicles across logistics, construction, home delivery, field service and healthcare operations.  Key functionality includes planning and optimising vehicle routes, administering vehicle checks, tracking delivery movements, issuing customer ETA notifications, and collecting and collating electronic proof of delivery information. The Podfather solution, which comprises a cloud-based back office system and an easy to use driver smartphone app, allows transport operators to eradicate paper tickets from their operations, improve visibility, enhance the customer experience and cut costs.

ISO 27001 is the internationally recognised best practice framework for setting up and managing an Information Security Management System (ISMS). It proves that the accredited company has the right processes and procedures in place to handle a wide range of secure information assets. Podfather’s initial awarding of the ISO status was the result of many months of hard work that saw an overhaul of company security standards and procedures.  The renewal of the ISO 27001 accreditation is testament to a company wide effort to understand and adhere to the guidelines set out in its well-defined Information Security Management System (ISMS).

“We are hugely proud of our ISO 27001 status and I am delighted that we have retained this accreditation again this year,” comments Colin McCreadie, Managing Director at Podfather. “We have always taken data security incredibly seriously here at Podfather and being awarded an ISO 27001 certification shows everyone that we are working with that our commitment to data security and integrity has been internationally recognised by the ISO governing body.”
