Denver, Colo. – December 22, 2008 – Global Technology Resources, Inc. (GTRI) announced today that it has received the ISO 9001:2008 Certification for quality management. The company undertook the ISO certification process in the summer of 2008 and completed the certification in just less than 5 months. The company successfully certified to both procurement and project delivery processes, and quality control. GTRI is the only Colorado IT Value Added Reseller/consulting firm with the certification, and is the first Colorado corporation certified to the new 2008 Standard.
ISO 9001:2008 is a globally-recognized set of standards by which a company’s Quality Management System is measured. It provides a mechanism to report on customer satisfaction, and creates a formal process to analyze issues affecting quality and performance. ISO 9001 certification is becoming a more common requirement from government agencies and large enterprises for critical projects and large procurements where vendor errors can have a large impact. To achieve ISO 9001 certification, companies must pass a series of internal audits and meet many rigorous standards to prove they have a method of measuring their quality management systems.
“Achieving this certification signals to the enterprise world that GTRI has entered a new level of management and control through tight analysis and remediation of quality issues. It is a very attractive badge to be able to advertise as a consulting services firm. ISO was created for the sole purpose of monitoring and ensuring Customer Satisfaction and Conformance to ‘product.’ ‘Product’ for GTRI is our hardware resales and consulting services,” said Glenn Smith, Executive VP of Operations at GTRI.
