ByteSnap Awarded Accredit UK Certification


ByteSnap Achieves Accredit UK Quality Standard


ByteSnap Design Ltd, a UK electronics design company, which provides both hardware and software design services is the first company in the electronics field to gain the Accredit UK certification.

Accredit UK quality standard has been developed to prove a supplier’s level of proficiency in their specialist field – giving confidence to purchasers and opening new doors to suppliers.

To gain the certification, ByteSnap Design has undergone a rigorous assessment that covers everything from how the company manages its employees through to the processes that are in place to ensure consistent high quality performance.

ByteSnap Design plans to use the newly gained Accredit UK standard to continue to grow its business. The company has a strong track record in keeping its clients happy, with much of its business generated by referrals and repeat business.

In the last year alone it has completed work on Windows CE BSP, Windows Mobile and iPhone application development and electronic product design.

Dunstan Power, Director of ByteSnap Design and one of the company founders, commented on the company’s decision to participate in the Accredit UK quality certification: “The marketplace for companies that provide electronics design services is vast and we experience competition from generalist design consultancies, offshored design services and even one man bands.  We believe that having an independent assessment of our company and gaining the prestigious Accredit UK quality mark will further demonstrate that we provide a high quality service.

“We were positive that we would meet the rigorous criteria of the Accredit UK standard as our team of engineers has already developed Windows Mobile and Windows Embedded software successfully for a wide range of electronics products. The new certification goes to improve the existing framework we worked to and incorporate best practises in our software development activity.”

“Significant repeat business, high levels of customer satisfaction”

The Accredit UK Assessor who managed the certification process said of ByteSnap Design: “During the assessment, ByteSnap Design demonstrated that they have a strong customer focus, through working closely with their clients to fully understand their needs. They have a rigorous and systematic approach to project management and solution development. Significant amounts of repeat business, demonstrate that their approach is effective in meeting the needs of their client, and consequently achieving high levels of customer satisfaction.”

Vaughan Shayler, Managing Director for Accredit UK said “By using the Accredit UK standard, ByteSnap Design is helping to make it easier for purchasers to feel confident to buy services from technology companies. 94% of people that we surveyed think that the Accredit UK standard is a good idea. That is because it solves their burning need – they can now get what they want without fear.”
