CONTROL AND INFORMATION SYSTEM INTEGRATORS ASSOCIATION'S 'GOLD TIER' MARKS MAJOR MILESTONE IN CERTIFIED MEMBER PROGRAM; GROUP INCLUDES FIRST INTERNATIONAL MEMBERS
 
HOUSTON, TX, October 21, 2003 - Fifty-one CONTROL AND INFORMATION SYSTEM INTEGRATORS ASSOCIATION (CSIA) member-firms have been accorded "Gold Tier" distinction in the association's prestigious CERTIFIED MEMBER program, it was announced today by CSIA Chairman Robert Reinhart in Houston, Texas, at the opening of ISA EXPO 2003 (Booth 1004). Included in the Gold Tier are the first European members of the association to earn CERTIFIED MEMBER status (see below).

The recognition marks a major milestone in the CERTIFIED MEMBER program and reflects a 100% increase in the number of companies that had earned such distinction one year ago. "Gold Tier" membership is limited to the first 50 CSIA member-firms* to pass the association's landmark BEST PRACTICES & BENCHMARKS registration process.

The intensive audit process, which measures each company's performance against criteria in seven business areas - Business Development, Financial Management, General Management, Human Resources, Project Management, Quality Management, and Technical Management is conducted by an outside auditing firm.

"These companies," Reinhart continued, "truly serve as the 'gold standard' for control and information system integrators worldwide - a fact given real dimension by the inclusion of four European system integrators* among our 'Gold Tier' of CERTIFIED MEMBERS. All have clearly demonstrated their understanding - and acceptance - of what it takes to be good businesspeople in addition to being superior technologists. We are proud to call them CSIA members!"

"The Certification Process, first announced by CSIA in late 2000, has twin missions," said Reinhart. "One, to assist users in evaluating and selecting integration firms, and two, to provide control and information system integrators a means to evaluate and continuously improve their own businesses. The honored 'Gold Tier' class of CERTIFIED MEMBERS has clearly shown its commitment to the control and information system integration community."
