QC Analytics in collaboration with IASIS Technologies
Our collaboration with IASIS Technologies started a few years ago, after a successful first meeting and our initial discussion. The collaboration included the preparation of the Technical File for the product innoMEDIA software in order to obtain the CE marking. During the project, it was a pleasure to work with Mr Themis Ampatzis (Marketing Manager and Product Specialist), and Ms Nikoleta Dimitra Bena (Software Engineer). Below you can find some questions we prepared for them.
QA: When was your company ISO 13485 certified?
ThA: We achieved the ISO 13485 certification in 2013.
QA: What do think is the strongest point of your team?
ThA: I would say that our strongest point in IASIS Technologies is the fact that we provide integrated solutions, we have a well-organized technical department, and a very strong presence both in Greece and Cyprus. Especially in Cyprus we are probably the number one company in the sector of CT and MRI scanners, as far as both their sale and service is concerned. Another strength of our company is that, although we are not a corporate giant, we have a large volume for a Greek company while maintaining elements of a small, familyrun business.
QA: And what do you think is the main strength of your department?
ThA: When it comes to our department, there is a lot of flexibility along with a strong client-centric philosophy. Our clients always come first. We try really hard to adapt in time as well as practically to the needs of each client, not only in the area of when and how we will best serve them, but also on how we can customize our products in order to do so. Also, an important aspect is that you can pick up the phone and talk to one of our people almost any time, so that they can help you resolve any problem that may arise.
QA: What are your goals for the future? Is there a new feature you are working on that you would like to tell us about?
ThA: Our goals for the future are for this software family to keep evolving, and we are certainly interested in following trends of the industry, like AI and Deep Learning. We would also like to enter new markets, such as operating rooms, where we aspire the software to be used without any media, that is, to be done by hand.
QA: What did you think of your collaboration with QC Analytics? What do you think you gained from working together?
ThA: We gained both experience and knowledge from this collaboration, in the fields of certifications, of software implementation, and organization of the department. We consider this cooperation a valuable one in all respects.
QA: Which aspects of the project were particularly successful, in your opinion?
ThA: I believe it was your understanding of our weaknesses and your turning them into strengths.
QA: Would you like to share some thoughts or feedback concerning our services?
ThA: The feedback we have to share is only positive.
QA: What advice would you give to new companies in your industry that are starting out their business activity or a certification process?
ThA: To take things seriously, try to apply these procedures in their daily life and follow them as consistently as possible.
We wish IASIS Technologies even more success in the future as they try to achieve the goals they have
