"For us as a global company, Standards are fundamental to our success. We're actively involved in standardization and we value excellence in Standards Management. Several years ago, we were faced with the challenge of introducing a new, modern Standards Management system. In our choice of supplier, we focused on software technology as well as on expertise in the areas of standardization and legislation. [...] The deciding factor for us was that GLOBALNORM demonstrated professional project management skills right throughout the bidding phase, the implementation stage and the operational stage, which has been several years to date. Additionally, they give us as their customer the opportunity to be actively involved in further software development. The consultants at GLOBALNORM have in-depth knowledge of CE marking and product compliance issues and are active on some of the same committees we are.
To us at Festo, all of this was significant since we market our products worldwide and accordingly place great emphasis on product compliance and the relevant legal requirements and standards of the target market."
