Richardson, TX (July 7, 2020) – Culminating a year-long review of its quality management standards and an intense three-day audit of its processes, ASSET® InterTech has been awarded an ISO-9001 certificate by the International Standards Organization, a global body comprised of 164 national standards organizations. The ISO-9001 certification is recognized as the gold standard for quality management systems (QMS) in the electronics and other industries. ASSET is a leading supplier of JTAG-based software and hardware debug, validation, and test tools.
“The audit itself was arduous, but, at the same time, very satisfying and encouraging because when it was finally completed, no detrimental findings were found,” said Glenn Woppman, president of ASSET. “This is essentially a vote of confidence for the product and service review processes we have put in place over the years to make sure we constantly monitor our metrics so that we always maintain that high level of quality which our users have come to expect from us.”
Heidi Richards, ASSET’s director of compliance and HR management, said, “I was thoroughly impressed by the collaborative team spirt displayed by all ASSET team members before, during, and after the three-day audit. Their knowledge and experience were extremely beneficial in answering any questions or concerns that I had relating to ASSET’s Quality Management System (QMS) prior to the audit, as well as directing the company to audit success once implemented. This type of strong group dynamics will continue to benefit ASSET as compliance with legal mandates through documented quality assurance reviews becomes a norm for companies throughout the United States and abroad.”
ASSET’s ISO-9001 certification is valid through 2023, at which time the company will undergo another audit by the ISO to be re-certified. In the meantime, the company will conform to the requirements of the ISO’s QMS specifications, including activities such as assessing user satisfaction and conducting its own internal audits to ensure high-quality products and services.
