Soliton’s Engineering Services Business is Certified ISO 9001:2008 Compliant

Soliton is pleased to announce that its ‘Engineering Services’ business has been certified as ISO 9001:2008 compliant by BSI Assurance UK Limited as on March 22, 2016. The scope is described as “Design and Development of Software and Systems for Measurement and Automation, Embedded, Desktop, and Web Applications.”

Soliton has been growing for 18 years at an average annual rate of 30%. The company has consistently achieved high customer satisfaction ratings and high customer retention (over 90% of its revenue comes from customers added during the previous years). Soliton received the very prestigious Supplier Excellence Award for 2014 from Texas Instruments to recognize the outstanding customer satisfaction rating Soliton achieved in 100 projects. These results were achieved by bringing the right people into the company, investing in their training, continuously strengthening the culture focused on customer delight, and developing the right processes to sustain all of these.

Soliton decided in 2015 that it had good business reasons to get its quality processes externally audited and chose to ensure compliance with the ISO 9001 quality standard. In the words of its CEO Dr. Ganesh Devaraj, “ISO 9001 provided Soliton the flexibility to build further on the processes that we had developed over the years using the ‘Lean Thinking’ philosophy used by Toyota to achieve decades of superior results. This has been a very fruitful activity and we are glad to get our quality system formally certified as ISO 9001:2008 compliant. My thanks for the entire team who contributed wholeheartedly to getting this done in the right manner.”

Soliton has brought all of its processes under what it calls ‘STEPS’. This name also serves as a good metaphor. Once the thoughtful and hard work of laying down the STEPS is done properly, it enables everybody to climb more efficiently. By setting new stretch goals and redesigning STEPS to reach them efficiently, Soliton expects to keep improving relentlessly and sustainably.
