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 REGISTERED 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 Registered Member status (see list below). The recognition marks a major milestone in the REGISTERED 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 REGISTERED MEMBERS. "All have clearly demonstrated their understanding - and acceptance - of what it takes to be good businesspeople in addition to being superior technologists," he added.
