     LSI Graphic Solutions continues its commitment to the highest quality management and customer satisfaction standards within the graphics manufacturing industry by obtaining ISO 9001:2008 recertification for the 12th year in a row.
    The annual ISO 9001:2008 recertification audit reviewed processes and functions within the company such as corrective actions, internal audits, preventative actions, training records, human resources, management commitment, maintenance, purchasing, product planning, customer service and more. The final audit report praised LSI’s leadership support:

    “LSI continues to operate the QMS system at a ‘Best Practice’ level. Their lack of findings for the full three year cycle demonstrates leadership support for maintaining a solid Quality Management System. Mr. Estep, SVP of Operations of the Houston Facility, encourages full compliance at all levels of this organization and has support and commitment from his entire staff.”

    “Better-than-industry-standard quality and process control are two key pillars of LSI’s value proposition,” Jeff Croskey, President of LSI Graphic Solutions commented, “It is an honor to be one of only graphics manufacturers to hold this certification.”

    The ISO 9001 sets requirements for quality management systems and is based on the idea of continual improvement, sustainable growth and customer satisfaction. The certification focuses on putting customers first to increase business and working in more efficient ways to increase productivity and efficiency to bring costs down. The ISO Management System has required that many procedures, SOPs and controls have been put in place to assist in the controlled growth of LSI Graphics Solutions.

    Over the course of the two day audit, processes and functions spread throughout the organization were reviewed including the company’s lean manufacturing projects, management review processes and tool and calibration records. Over the entire process 0 negative findings were found. The ISO 9001 certification guides organizations towards continual improvement, sustainable growth and customer satisfaction -- goals that LSI Graphic Solutions plans to satisfy for years to come.

    Thanks to their partnership with audio-visual systems integrator, EHI Company, Videotel Digital announces their addition to the schedule for the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). Working in tandem with the EHI Company, governmental agencies, and other organizations can make use of the GSA schedule to purchase Videotel Digital products. The leading manufacturer will now provide federal, state, and local governmental agencies with superior industrial digital signage media players and interactive solutions. Thus, reduced acquisition timelines and pre-negotiated rates and terms will facilitate outcomes exponentially.

    GSA schedules are open-ended, five-year contracts listing negotiated prices for the products and services of named suppliers. Thus, buyers reach better purchasing decisions by procuring products through the pre-approved list. To that end, vendors must pass through an arduous and lengthy review process to be approved for GSA listing.

    Lisa Schneider, VP of Marketing and Sales at Videotel Digital said, “We couldn’t be more pleased that our products and digital signage solutions are available for governmental agencies through the GSA contract via EHI Company. Just one of the applications slated for our dynamic media players and digital signage solutions will be to facilitate airport security with TSA checks. Other settings will include corporate and educational kiosks as well as in-room channel advertising and digital displays. Do to their enormous and far-reaching arm, among similar uses; governmental detention centers will incorporate our solutions into their programs as well.”

    Atlanta – Digital Signage Expo (DSE), the leading conference and trade show for digital display and interactive technology, announced today that its website has won the Web Marketing Association’s “Outstanding Website” WebAward for 2016.

    DSE worked with a2z to design and build its new website, which was launched in the fall of 2014 not only to make its navigation more user-friendly, but also to be able to create functionality that better serves the event’s attendees. These included:

        Fully branding the website and making it completely responsive and compatible with diverse browsers and devices.
        Enabling attendees to tap into up-to-date event information, including exhibitor profiles and an interactive event map, as well as smart planning resources.
        Offering an enhanced search capability for conference information.
        Providing secure log-in for exhibitors to be able to access options for enhanced visibility, including DSE’s eBooth options and sponsorship information.

    “I want to recognize our internal team, designer and a2z, whose amazing work has resulted in this award,” said Cory Fausz, Communications Manager for Exponation, which produces DSE. “The design offers an excellent user experience and has been positively received by exhibitors and attendees alike.”

    The WebAward Competition is open to all organizations and individuals involved in the process of developing web sites for organizations, companies and the government. Websites entered must have been in general use for at least part of calendar year 2015 or early 2016.

    WebAwards are granted at three levels in 96 industry categories.
