Darmstadt, Germany, October 13, 2011– The fact that PROSTEP places great importance on quality in everything it does is nothing new. The fact that the company’s quality management system meets the high requirements of an initial system audit at first go, on the other hand, is something new.
In September 2011, PROSTEP completed an audit for certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 with success and without exceptions. Certification was performed by DQS, one of the leading certification bodies for management systems worldwide.
The DQS auditors were impressed first and foremost by the quality of the execution of core processes at PROSTEP. Exemplary communication while carrying out customer projects also made a particularly favorable impression.
Audit manager Andre Dubsky: "PROSTEP AG’s processes reflect high standards in the area of software development and the provision of services. The structure and documentation of the processes are correspondingly excellent. Ongoing development means that the maturity of the processes has reached a manageable and high level.”
"Based on practice-oriented examples and the evidence viewed, the process audits confirm that PROSTEP AG has a stable management system that it is demonstrably able to handle”, added auditor Ulrich Merz.
“Our aim has always been to put PROSTEP’s quality objectives into practice each and every day: above all, customer satisfaction in every area together with customer contact and the efficient planning and execution of projects by qualified employees. We are very proud that our corporate culture has found a level of recognition that can, so to speak, be measured”, said Reinhard Betz, CFO of PROSTEP AG. “In future audits, this is the success by which we will have to allow ourselves to be measured.”
