The Comprehensive Tourist Quality System in Destinations (SICTED) is a system for improving the quality of tourist destinations promoted by the Spanish Tourism Institute (Turespaña) and the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces (FEMP), which works with companies /tourist services of up to 36 different trades, with the ultimate goal of improving the tourist experience and satisfaction.
The "Tourist Quality Commitment" Distinction certifies compliance with the requirements established in the methodology and recognizes the effort and commitment to quality and continuous improvement of the member companies while distinguishing the company from the competition.
The SICTED allows the establishment of a permanent management structure that ensures the increase in the competitiveness of the tourist companies of the destination; offers a homogeneous level of quality in all tourist services and seeks to increase the involvement and participation of businessmen in the tourist development of the destination.
Among the benefits that companies obtain, it is worth highlighting the improvement of internal management, especially that of processes related to customer satisfaction; increasing the qualification of the team, through a training plan; participating in the largest tourism quality project developed in Spain, together with more than 9,000 establishments; receive technical assistance that offers support for improvement, and opt for an award that certifies the level of quality obtained.
