If a company has certified processes, e.g. management systems such as ISO 9001 (quality management), then it also needs a management of those certificates. In order not to have to resort to analog methods, such as collecting printed certificates in folders, certificate management tools are usually used.

Such a software-based solution can not only structure digitally captured certificates, but usually also remind users when a certificate loses its validity. In this way, certificate renewals can be planned in advance.
Software tools for certificate management can therefore lead to cost optimization. With analog methods, for example, printed certificates must be collected in folders. The overview can quickly be lost if they are not stored properly. This costs time, nerves and money, which could be better invested in further training or talent management measures.
Certificate management is also considered in personnel development. Particularly in succession planning or in the skill gap analysis, attention is paid to ensuring that suitable employees have certificates.
