inmation’s quality management system, inQ, lies at the core of our organization and covers all aspects of our daily operations. This includes all processes involved in the development and support of the software product and all processes that provide support for the infrastructure of the organization.
inQ ensures a commitment to continuous improvement of not only the product but all areas of the business to meet the customers’ needs and requirements. This commitment is shared by management and employees alike, and guarantees that inmation’s software product, supporting documentation, supporting customization libraries and all supporting services shall be of highest value and quality.
The objectives for our quality management system focus on the core areas of product development, quality assurance and customer support. Product development proceeds using the Agile methodology to plan, execute and test all new features and discovered software issues. The progress of all work items related to product development and bug fixing are efficiently tracked and monitored within defined development cycles. Continuous improvement in the efficiency of the product development process is an objective by reducing system downtime during development cycles.
The quality of the product is assured through a rigorous testing process with a focus on automation wherever possible. All discovered software issues are tracked and retested after fixes have been made. Automated tests are developed for both discovered bugs and new features to avoid regressions.
Customer support processes are designed to track and quickly deal with customer issues and maintain communication with the customer by providing regular updates and alerts about new releases containing new features and bug fixes. The product documentation is regularly updated to provide a comprehensive information resource for all users. Our supporting processes in human resources, IT, finance and quality assurance ensure that our ability to execute the core development, sales and support is properly maintained with a commitment to comprehensive training, process monitoring and ability to provide business continuity.
We constantly strive to outperform our peer group and aim to develop our company and product towards a global market standard.
The ISO 9001:2015 certification for inmation’s quality management system was awarded by TÜV Rheinland in October 2018. Please visit the TÜV Rheinland Certipedia for more details about the certification.
