Global first for aftermarket tuner: Viezu ISO Certification
Viezu Technologies, one of the world’s leading and fastest growing aftermarket vehicle tuning and ECU remapping companies, has achieved a global industry first by becoming fully ISO 9001 certified
The news comes hot on the heels of an official audit which confirmed that Viezu met all the stringent quality criteria to be bestowed the prestigious internationally recognised standard. Paul Busby, CEO, Viezu, said: “To be the first car engine tuning company in the world to achieve ISO 9001 is great news for Viezu and our customers. It clearly demonstrates our on-going commitment to producing high-quality, market leading products backed up by a first class after sales support. Of course, customers of Viezu approved dealers already had the confidence of knowing that all of our products are fully insured, with a money back guarantee, but this independent accolade gives an extra reassurance and is proof of the highest standards we maintain.”
Although nearly all the strict processes were already in place before embarking on ISO certification almost four years ago, Viezu has also substantially invested in new equipment and staff training to ensure it reached the stringent management processes required. The news also means that Viezu approved dealers can say that the processes and development use to produce the electronic files, (ECU Remapping files) they use are ISO compliant, a strong reassurance to customers who previously may have been reluctant to have had their car retuned.
To achieve ISO 9001 status Viezu demonstrated to The British Standards Institution (BSI) that they had rigid quality management systems in place, including their Technical Training Academy (Viezu’s in house car tuning training and car tuning software training centre, see www.remap101.com for more inforamtion), thorough staff training, processes for new product development and implementation, and even how they interface with customers. Paul added: “Although ISO certification benefits our business, we also have the aim of lifting the industry standard and hope other car tuning companies follow suit. “This award is also particularly important for our Special Projects Team, who already work with a number of car manufacturers, and after market tuning providers helping them to meet increasingly stringent emissions legislation without any sacrifice to performance. This gives a further ‘stamp of approval’ and makes our services and products even more attractive to other vehicle manufacturers.”
Only recently Viezu doubled the size of its technical team and appointed a general manager as a result of the unprecedented demand for its services. The company has now developed more than 15,000 individual ECU programmes. In some instances Viezu’s products give drivers a massive 15% improvement in fuel economy and 40% reduction in vehicle emissions.
