GeoQuest gains ISO 9001 quality recognition (December 1996)

GeoQuest has just received ISO 9001 accreditation for its marketing, support and training departments

GeoQuest recently "proudly announced" that its software support, software commercialization and training departments had earned ISO 9001 registration. The three departments follow hardware commercialization and staging which were registered last year. 'Our ISO 90001 program has given GeoQuest an excellent system for identifying the best methods of assuring the quality of our products' said Stan Wedel, GeoQuest vice president of software product commercialization and support. To gain registration GeoQuest had to comply with the 20 elements of ISO 9001, such as management responsibility, quality systems and document and data control. To prepare for registration, GeoQuest reviewed current business practices, documented the processes and conducted training. 'Our ISO 9001 program provides an excellent system for identifying best practices to enhance our quality service worldwide.' The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) promotes the development of quality standards for international manufacturing, trade and communications. The ISO 9001 quality system standard is the broadest of the quality standards and applies to most organizations. ISO 9001 encompasses the design, development, production, installation and servicing of products and services, including computer hardware and software.
