SGS is world leader in the field of inspection, verification, analysis and certification. SGS works together with people and provides independent services that help reduce risks, improve processes and work in a sustainable way. As such, they consider safety to be of paramount importance.

Richard Beukema (Human Resource Business Partner) and Tim Kriek (Application Manager) from SGS explain why they chose I-FourC for the digitisation of their personnel files.

Digitising personnel files

I-FourC has digitised the personnel files for SGS to work with AFAS. The choice of a digitisation partner was made very carefully at SGS. “As SGS, we test other organisations for – among other things – safety, quality and risks. If we are having an external party digitise our personnel files, we need to have full confidence in them. Our partner must fit with our values, and I-FourC met all of these aspects”, says Richard Beukema. “Members of the works council visited I-FourC’s location to test whether what was said is in line with reality. This is important for internal support, but also confirmed that I-FourC has its affairs well in order.”


Richard Beukema continues: “The decisive factor for working with I-FourC was their ISO27001 certification. They not only say they work according to this standard, but can also demonstrate it with the actual certificate. The fact that they also have the NEN 7510 (even stricter requirements, focused on health care) speaks volumes about the high level of information security. Personnel data is extremely privacy-sensitive and in my opinion, an ISO27001 certification should not be missing. What I also experienced as pleasant is that I-FourC did not just come to preach a sales pitch. The fact that they think with us and their flexibility, hands-on mentality and practical approach were very appealing to us.”

Short lines

Tim Kriek adds: “We wanted to import our files directly into our AFAS environment. The partnership that I-FourC has with AFAS was an advantage. They made sure our files ended up directly in our environment. Thanks to their expertise and short lines of communication, I experienced the contact with the employees of I-FourC as very constructive, even at a technical level.

The personnel department of SGS is now working fully digitally within AFAS, resulting in a considerable improvement in terms of efficiency and professionalism.

SGS, thank you for your trust in I-FourC!
