System Technologies, ISO9002 approved since 1998, said ISO 9002 puts the
necessary structures in place and defines procedures that ultimately lead
to enhanced quality and productivity.
Founded in 1979 Murton
System Technologies is involved in many fields of the electronic arena.
It has grown from a small agency company to a respected developer and
turnkey manufacturer employing upwards of 50 people.
“While the bulk of
employees are involved with production, through our sister company FIMM,
we also employ some of the best hardware and software Engineers in the
country. As far back as 1998 we were the first South African Company
to adopt Mifare technology - and one of the first Worldwide - and have
developed and produced Contactless smart card products for the South
African and international markets since then. The first available
applications were for the Parking and Road Tolling industry,” explained
Areas of specialty
include, design, development, manufacture and supply of telemetry systems,
turnkey population of printed circuit cards for third parties with either
conventional through-hole technology or SMT or both. Hardware and
software development as well as customization of designs to client needs
as well as a range of OEM products such as power Supplies, Fiber Optic
Converters and Magnetic Locks.
“ISO assists in the
on-going verification of product quality and is a major part in the
process of maintaining customer satisfaction especially appropriate in our
turnkey manufacturing environment,” he noted.
A little discussed aspect
of ISO 9002 is that it developed out of the need to agree on world
standards to help rationalize the international trading process. The
body of which is made up of a number of members who are entitled to
participate and exercise full voting rights on any technical committee and
policy committee of ISO.
“Much fanfare and
misconception exists around the whole concept of ISO certification.
Many have clouded the issue by over complication and dramatization that
accreditation for many has become nothing more than a dream. Put
simply ISO 90002 is about saying what one does - quality and procedures
manuals - and doing what one says - the auditing and implementation,”
Technologies has been nominated for no less than 10 awards since 1992,
including Technology Top 100 Company, Top Manufacturer and Top Products
