A long and arduous process

To become ISO 9001:2015 and 27001:2013 compliant, ASI underwent a rigorous twelve-month evaluation process that involved all employees and management at all levels.

Employees of Alliance Software Inc. shares the pride for this achievement—a welcome validation of the high quality standard that the company offers to its customers. While this is a commendable accomplishment, this also serve as a substantial challenge for the company to always maintain the required standards, achieve continuous improvement, and enhance customer satisfaction.
