The certification program was established to provide robot integrators with a way to benchmark against industry best practices and allows robot users to develop a baseline for evaluating robot integrators.
Ann Arbor, MI - Robotic Industries Association (RIA) today announced that QComp has achieved recertification as part of the RIA Certified Robot Integrator program. QComp achieved their initial certification in October 2012 by completing a rigorous process which includes an on-site audit and testing of key personnel among other important criteria. The certification program was established to provide robot integrators with a way to benchmark against industry best practices and allows robot users to develop a baseline for evaluating robot integrators:
"We are thrilled QComp found significant value in the program and pursued recertification," said Jeff Burnstein, President of RIA. "QComps recertification reaffirms their effort to provide a high standard of quality service to their customers. One of our goals with the certification program is to provide robotic automation integrators with a means to establish performance guidelines that helps ensure long term success."
"RIA certification confirms the higher standards that QComp has maintained as our routine practice," said Tom Doyle, President, QComp Technologies, Greenville, Wisconsin. "Adding three more certified technicians to our engineers that passed the testing at the Expert level shows the dedication and competence of the QComp staff and our internal emphasis on training. Benchmarking our processes and engineering competence against other top robotic integrators helps establish QComps place in the market as an experienced, competent and customer focused integrator."
Detailed information on the certification program and the certified robot integrators can be found on a special section of Robotics Online. Integrators interested in becoming certified can contact Jeff Burnstein or 734/994-6088.
RIA cannot guarantee the work of any integrator or recommend which integrators to choose. Robotics customers should conduct their own due diligence on the suppliers they select. RIA has over 60 system integrator members and looks forward to having more of them go through the certification process in the near future.
