Ascenty achieves ISO 9001 certification for its data centers in Brazil
Leading data center company in Latin America earns seal that attests to excellence in quality management in all 18 of its operations in Brazil
With 28 dedicated units in Brazil, Chile and Mexico – 19 in operation and nine under construction – Ascenty, leader of the Colocation market in Latin America, announced that it has received ISO 9001 certification, which attests to excellence in delivery of services and quality management in all of its 18 operations in Brazil.
To obtain the certification, the company established standard procedures at its Brazilian data centers that meet ISO 9001 global requirements. The two data centers in Santiago, Chile – one in operation and the other in the final stages of construction – and the two data centers in Querétaro, Mexico – expected to open in 2022 – are scheduled to obtain regulatory approval this year.
“We have implemented a standardized documentation management model to monitor the achievement of business management quality goals, with processes and procedures aimed at making our employees more efficient in their activities,” explained Fábio Trimarco, Ascenty’s Compliance Director. “The main benefits of ISO 9001 are waste reduction; more efficient identification of problems in the operation; increased customer loyalty; and better organization of management processes,” he adds.
The ISO 9001 is yet another of Ascenty certifications in environmental management and corporate social responsibility, which now add up to over a 100. The company also has all its units classified as Tier 3 (TR3) – which endorses the data centers with the highest availability in the market.
