About Us

Let us "simplify" your ISO Management. We conduct Internal Audits, Evaluation of Compliance, and Train Auditors.


Poague & Associates, Inc. consultants are proven industry experts and Subject Matter Experts in their fields.

All of our consultants are veterans with direct experience in industry. Our staff consists of engineers and professional managers, auditors and instructors with real world experience in industry.

In their previous professional careers, most of our consultants have implemented ISO systems for their companies, and “lived” with the system. Many have been in charge of their companies’ ISO systems as the “management representative”, managed the audit program, or had other direct responsibilities. In other words, we have been in your shoes.

We will tailor our services to meet your business objectives in your business environment. This means “we work for you” on your schedule, not ours. Are you in a “sprint to the finish line” and need certification quickly, or are you implementing as your resources are available? Our veterans will work with you to set up schedules you can live with.
