November 20, 2007 – Zug, Switzerland

EPSCom AG, including its engineering center, has successfully passed its first ISO 9001:2000 certification. The certification has been conducted by Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems (SQS), Switzerland, and covers the entire company’s activity area, which includes embedded system solutions, software design, development, and implementation services, and reference hardware platforms.

The maturity of EPSCom’s quality management system and processes allowed SQS to approve system’s compliance to the ISO standard already in the first certification round. This is the best demonstration of a long term commitment of EPSCom to the high quality of services provided by the company to its customers. According to EPSCom’s president, Alexander Zhvaniya, the successful certification was preceded by years of continuous improvement in the quality of services based on customer feedback. “After several years of hard work it was almost ensured that we will pass our first certification without any serious problems. Today we are very happy to see results of our work. But the certification per se was not our end goal. We know that our strength is in the top, if you like, ‘Swiss’ quality which we can provide to our customers; and they value and rely on this. That is why we are not going to stop at the achieved level. Instead we will further strive to improve our processes to achieve highest satisfaction levels of our customers.” -- said Mr. Zhvaniya.

Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems (SQS) is the market leader in assessment and certification services in Switzerland. Due to its legal status as an association, SQS is a not-for profit organization which functions neutrally and independently. Thanks to the accreditation by the Swiss Accreditation Service (SAS), the active membership of the International Certification Network IQNet and the co-operation contracts/agreements with accredited partners, the SQS certificates are accepted worldwide.
