Quality, Environment, People

Planetek Italia has adopted a "company system" instead of a generic "quality system" in order to manage each activity in accordance with detailed internal rules, and converting these rules in informatics procedures.

According to Planetek Italia, Quality is a philosophy, a way to operate which includes all the activities of the company and becomes a clear definition of customer's requirements, that is a "project" approach to the orders, for a subdivision of the activities into "work packages" defining responsible, output, input, work times and verifications. Such a methodological way of work allows the planning of activities, the respect of times and specifications of the systems realized.

The organization of the company system in compliance with the ISO rules has led Planetek Italia to pass the inspection on January 14th, 2000, and to receive the ISO 9001 certification for "Design, realization and servicing of geographical information system (G.I.S.), cartographical and Earth Observation data processing (E.O.). Design and delivery of training services regarding geographical information system and Earth Observation.".
