Six years of Quality Service IXEurope receives ISO9001:2000 recertification in all of its datacenters.
IXEurope announces today it has passed an independent ISO9001:2000 Quality Management System audit for the 11th time in the five years since being awarded the certificate in 1999. IXEurope's management team remains firmly committed to the standard as a route to operational and commercial success, particularly with its growing number of highend clients.
Kevin Martin, Vice President Customer Operations & Quality said, "Maintaining compliance and continuous improvement is not a simple task for datacenter operations, but following the standard is benefiting every aspect of our work. As time goes by it is increasingly demonstrating its benefits to our investors, ourselves and the way we work but most importantly our Customer service".
Guy Willner, CEO and cofounder stated, "ISO9001:2000 certification has been an important benefit to our company as more IT service, financial service and enterprise customers trust IXEurope to house their missioncritical systems. We welcome the adoption of ISO9001:2000 by other hosting and datacenter service companies as the standard of this core infrastructure service."
IXEurope's Chairman Sir Anthony Cleaver said , " Quality has been the mainstay of our business since we founded the company in 1999. We are clearly pleased with achievements todate in this area. I believe the company's recent signings of major banks and outsourcing companies demonstrate the value of our approach."
