Reliable partner for a long-term friendship
Document management is an integral part of a business management system, that is the opinion of Syngenta, a specialist in the development, production and sale of flower and vegetable seeds and seeds for agricultural crops. The company carefully sought a reliable partner, who had the right software and who wanted to enter into a long-term relationship. Quality Online proved to be very suitable for all nuances of a business culture. "On the other hand, there was some resistance. Everyone wanted autonomy and suffered from the "not-invented-here syndrome."
ISO certificate, a milestone to go on
Professional document management was introduced in 1997 document at Syngenta Seeds. In that year, Syngenta decided to go for an ISO certification, at the insistence of the market. "For us, the ISO certificate was not an end in itself, but a milestone to go on with quality management. This meant that many aspects, including document and process descriptions, had to be settled in a more formal way," Tjeerd Klaassen looks back.
