Are you confused by the various software and systems standards out there? Do you need a simple explanation of what is involved and why we should look at the standard? You are not alone.

Many organizations choose one or two standards and then try to figure out where to begin. The problem can arise if they choose a standard that is out of date or written for a different domain.

Others may be aware that there are standards but they simply don’t have the time to look at what has to be done. Even small companies can get started with standards compliance and it does not have to be painful. Why not automate the documentation that many regulators require?

Craobh Technology Consulting can provide you with a set of steps to create a process which will put you on the right path to automating quality checks, verification and validation in your existing processes. Take the hassle out of compliance and take the first step to reducing your workload. Email for details.
