Customer Satisfaction Takes ADS to ISO 9001:2000 Certification

6/11/2003 - Applied Data Systems (ADS), a leading designer and manufacturer of embedded single board computers, received ISO 9001:2000 certification, underscoring its commitment to provide the highest quality products and services to its customers. ADS received its certificate through Det Norske Veritas (DNV), the certification body.

The certification includes all design activities and confirms ADS' strong customer focus. This new version of the ISO quality standard places a greater emphasis on top management involvement in the Quality System. The compliance audit now examines the extent to which a company's Quality System contains customer-focused elements, including understanding needs, meeting requirements, keeping customers informed, and measuring satisfaction.

Bob Olsen, CEO of ADS, said: "The quality of our people and the quality of our services have been fundamental to the success of our company. Succeeding in the embedded industry is all about providing quality services, the differentiating factor between many companies in our industry. We're very proud of this accomplishment and our commitment to our customers."

ADS embedded computer systems are used in manufacturing, industrial, medical and retail applications. Their embedded systems often interface with other technology such as global positioning systems (GPS) and are increasingly part of mobile, wireless and internet-enabled applications. ADS is one of the first embedded computer systems companies to be certified ISO 9001:2000.
