An important purpose of TickIT, which is supported by the UK and Swedish software industries, has been to stimulate software system developers to think about: what quality really is in the context of the processes of software development, how quality may be achieved, and how quality management systems may be continuously improved.

Although certification of compliance to ISO 9001 is a contractual requirement for software suppliers in certain market areas, it should be a by-product of the more fundamental aims of quality achievement and improvement, and the delivery of customer satisfaction.

With regard to certification itself, the objectives are to: improve market confidence in third party quality management system certification through accredited certification bodies for the software sector, improve professional practice amongst quality management system auditors in the software sector,
publish authoritative guidance material (the TickIT Guide) for all stakeholders
