Submitted by Ray Bachelor
Bachelor Controls, Inc. (BCI) – a leading provider of control and systems integration solutions to manufacturers – has once again achieved the CSIA Certified status in the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA) “Best Practices and Benchmarks” certification program. BCI has maintained CSIA Certification status continuously since 2000.
BCI earned the certification following a successful audit – administered by an independent consulting firm – that assessed its performance against client-centric criteria in a wide range of business, project management, and system development areas: general management, human resources management, financial management, marketing, business development, sales management, project management, system development lifecycle, supporting activities, quality assurance management, and service and support.
“CSIA Certification is the gold-seal mark of a professionally managed control system integration business,” said José Rivera, CSIA CEO. “Certification reassures clients that BCI is an established professional services firm that wants to develop a successful, long-term partnership with clients.”
“CSIA is the premier benchmarking organization in the control system integration industry,” said Michael Bachelor, president of Bachelor Controls. “Recognition as CSIA Certified is a testament to our commitment to CSIA’s value proposition of ensuring that industries everywhere have access to low-risk, safe and successful applications of automation technology.”
