«ISO 9001 surveillance audit affirms significant improvements
in EPSCom’s quality management system»

October 30, 2008 – Zug, Switzerland

EPSCom AG is proud to announce its successful completion of ISO 9001:2000 surveillance audit conducted by Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems (SQS), a leading organization in assessment and certification services in Switzerland. The entire company, with a special emphasis on its engineering center, has been extensively audited in number of key areas, among which were management, business strategy, human resources, IT infrastructure, customer relations, design and development processes, production and service provisioning.

SQS auditors affirmed a considerable progress in usage and further improvement of the quality management system since its introduction at EPSCom one year ago, in 2007. The improvements are seen in many areas and on all company levels. The audit results show that both management and personnel use the system beneficially. Customer satisfaction and best quality at reasonable prices on the embedded systems market remain the important strategic drivers of the company. The auditing experts provided EPSCom with a valuable feedback revealing new avenues to further advance company’s quality management system.

Alexander G. Zhvaniya, company’s president and director of engineering, said: “We are very satisfied with the [audit] results. When I look back, I see what a great leap we did in one year. Today I’m convinced that the decision to implement ISO-compliant quality system was the right one. Already now we see positive impact on our business. Of course, not all processes are yet optimal. A lot of work still has to be invested to make the system more effective and convenient for use. But our motivation is high and we are confident that we will achieve this soon.”
