Ecert Basic Insider  
Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>,

For nearly 15 years, Organic Services has been working with Intact GmbH, Austria – an Integrity Solutions’ provider, to introduce Ecert® the audit management software for standard setting, control and certification bodies, and accreditors.
We have been successful and are proud to say that Ecert® is the market leader in the organic sector, but Ecert® has also been introduced to organisations from other industries, e.g. fair trade, fish, mining, non-gmo, health, construction material, accreditation, etc.
In working with control bodies of all sizes, we recognized that it was necessary to develop an “entry-level” product that fits to the reduced complexity of smaller, local and emerging organisations and their budgets.
Over the last two years, we developed ‘Ecert Basic’ an easy to use, affordable solution focused on Ecert®’s core functionality, introduced and proven by our current clients. With a number of you, we have been in contact for many years about introducing Ecert®, but were not able to offer a solution that fits your needs and budget. We are sure that Ecert Basic will meet your needs!
This “Ecert Basic Insider” will inform you about ‘Ecert Basic’ and its functionalities. Should you be interested to learn more, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us and ask for a free presentation.

With kind regards,
Frank Gerriets & Gerald A. Herrmann

Ecert® or Ecert Basic?

Ecert® is the leading professional software for database driven audit management, administration and CRM. Over time, Ecert® has developed into a multifunctional tool that gives its users many more features on top of its core functionality. Ecert® offers a high degree of flexibility and can be customized to meet the needs of your certification body. But not all certification bodies are ready for Ecert®.

Ecert Basic is an easy to use, affordable solution focused on Ecert®’s core functionality.

Small, local certifiers should be able to deliver the same performance as globally active ones. This can be challenging and sometimes even overwhelming with the audit and reporting demands of accreditors, the need to professionally manage data and the investments needed on all levels at the same time. This is why we developed Ecert Basic. Choose Ecert Basic and make a solid investment in further professionalising your certification body today.
