Creditable Mark of Quality for Software Design Duo


Byline: By Steve Pain Technology Editor

Two West Midlands companies - Portech Systems and KC3.net - are among the first in the country to be certified to Accredit UK's software design, development and testing standard.

Accredit UK is a quality mark that promotes trust in IT and helps suppliers prove their excellence. The two companies were presented with their certificates on 29 April in Coventry.

Since 1992, Portech's R&D team has been developing mobile computer solutions for small to medium sized companies, as well as household names such as Habitat and PayPoint.

Shaz Naeem, managing director of Portech, views Accredit UK as an invaluable addition to the IT industry, and one which will help all aspects of the company's operation.

"We will use the certification to help grow our business as we will have a recognition which many of our competitors will not yet have.

"With the Accredit UK certification, we can say that we are the best of the best and our customers can rely on us."

The Accredit UK Assessor said: "Portech Systems has a systematic approach to providing high quality software and levels of customer service. This means that they consistently achieve the highest levels of customer satisfaction."

KC3.net is an employee-owned business.

It develops acms software that allows website owners to manage their content easily and OutBox, an ethical mass emailing system.

Unusually for an IT company, 50 per cent of employees are female and in the last 12 months sales have grown by 87 per cent and turnover by 50 per cent.
