MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the calibration and repair services market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes SIMCO Electronics (SIMCO) with the 2016 North America Frost & Sullivan Company of the Year Award. SIMCO's leading position in the calibration and repair services market is largely a result of its outstanding customer service, technical expertise, worldwide network, and advanced service management software.
Founded in 1962 by NASA calibration experts in Silicon Valley, SIMCO now serves over 3000 organizations, including 15 of the 20 largest global biomedical device companies and 14 of the 20 largest global aerospace-defense companies. SIMCO provides services in over 40 countries through a network of 22 laboratories, global datacenters, and field service teams.
SIMCO's CERDAAC service management software is one of the key reasons for their superior customer service and technical excellence. CERDAAC automates calibration, repair, and maintenance services performed by SIMCO, in-house personnel, or third-party vendors and provides uniform service execution, documentation, and program visibility.
"SIMCO demonstrates a strong understanding of the customer's need for actionable insights. Using its service history database developed over the last 50 years, CERDAAC's superior analytics help customers minimize their failure rate, improve product quality, and make better operational decisions," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Director Jessy Cavazos.
SIMCO's large network of calibration labs and significant investment in specialty standards allows it to provide an extremely broad range of capabilities. They also repair more types of instruments than original equipment manufacturers and typical third-party calibration service providers.
SIMCO is often the first in the industry to adopt new quality standards. SIMCO was the first commercial calibration laboratory to be A2LA 17025 accredited, the first to support Z540.3, and now is among the first to receive ISO 9001:2015 certification. SIMCO's CERDAAC software was also one of the first service management solutions to be fully validated and compliant with FDA 21 CFR Parts 11 & 820 for life science customers.
For its overall excellence in service, innovation, and leadership, Frost & Sullivan is pleased to present SIMCO with the 2016 North America Frost & Sullivan Company of the Year Award. The complete Award report is available at www.simco.com/company/award/.
