Consult2Comply Facilitates Successful ISO 20000 Certification for Leading IT Management Firm In Record Time
July 7, 2010 | Reston, Virginia – Consult2Comply, a premier regulatory compliance software and services provider announced today that MicroTech, a leading IT Solutions Provider and Systems Integrator, was officially granted ISO 20000 certification in record time as a result of their partnership during an extensive auditing process. MicroTech’s IT division was assessed with no non-conformities and unconditional approval, placing them among only 24 other corporations in the United States with this certification.
Steve Crutchley, CEO and founder of Consult2Comply welcomed MicroTech’s time-sensitive assignment and said “Due to the shortage of auditors with ISO 20000 auditing experience, it was a challenge to find a registrar with the capability to respond in the time-line identified. Ensuring knowledgeable and qualified auditors is essential to achieving success in the detailed process of certification and we are dedicated to finding them for our clients – regardless of time constraints” Preston Quick, MicroTech’s Chief Information Officer, said “C2C consulted with our internal team and provided the knowledge and preparation that were crucial to our success in a very short time-frame to achieve this goal.” To date, Consult2Comply has managed and guaranteed the certification process for six companies seeking ISO Certification, three of them completed and achieved in less than three months.ISO 20000 is the world’s first international standard for IT Service Management. It defines the requirements for a service provider to deliver managed services, describes detailed best practices and specifies five key service management processes: Service Delivery, Relationship, Resolution, Control and Release. Because MicroTech is dedicated to consistently delivering excellence in IT Management, this accreditation is a tremendous advantage to them in the Federal IT arena.
Tony Jimenez, President and CEO of MicroTech, knows the importance, and appreciates the benefits, of this internationally recognized certification and said “Partnerships are critical in today’s business environment; C2C stepped up to the challenge and led us to our objective…they were with us every step of the way“.
