ROCKVILLE, MD--(Marketwired - Sep 23, 2013) - Lisa Kazor, CEO and President of Savantage Solutions, announced today that the company has achieved the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 Quality Management System (QMS) certification.

ISO is the world's largest developer of voluntary International Standards. ISO 9001:2008 QMS certification enables organizations to demonstrate their commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, as well as continuously improving their company's operations. The internationally recognized quality management system standard is the preferred solution for organizations worldwide. Industry statistics show that more than 500,000 are ISO certified, while nearly 40,000 companies in the U.S. are currently 9001 certified.

The ISO 9001:2008 QMS certification covers principles such as: commitment by upper management, customer focus, configuration and control of records, involvement of people, continuous improvement, and measurable quality standards.

ISO has conducted studies demonstrating that organizations using 9001:2008 effectively increase revenue, improve employee morale and satisfaction, attract new customers, and improve accountability and management. Government agencies can rely on the highest level of efficiency and productivity within business operations when engaging services from an ISO certified organization. By using an ISO 9001:2008 QMS, government customers are more likely to receive cost savings, enhanced customer satisfaction, increased market share, and effective audit/review service.

"This achievement, along with other certifications we have attained, places Savantage as a global business enterprise -- ensuring that the company is delivering services of the highest quality standards to the federal government," said Ms. Kazor. "ISO 9001:2008 represents the commitment by Savantage to address any customer's challenge by bringing them the best products and services through superior on-time delivery."

Savantage is committed to the highest standards of company best practices and processes. In 2011, Savantage achieved the Software Engineering Institute's (SEI) Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI®) for Development (CMMI-DEV) Level 3 Maturity Rating.
