Advisera is a leading online provider of compliance products for small businesses – we cover GDPR, MDR, AS9100, IATF 16949, ISO 27001, ISO 9001, and other major ISO standards. We sell the products globally, and the main markets are North America, Europe, and Australia. The company was founded 10 years ago, and from the very beginning we have operated remotely; in fact, all our staff works from home.
The compliance market is growing rapidly as more and more industry standards and regulations are published – because of their complexity, it is challenging for smaller companies to implement them without expert help.
Our mission is to make complex frameworks easy to understand and simple to use. During these 10 years, we have pushed this principle to perfection – our clients find our products straightforward to understand and use, which sets us apart from our competitors.
