Our world is more than zeroes and ones. We care about the world around us and we want to actively participate in it.
We are a certified company in accordance with international standards which have been carried out by renowned certification authorities. Because of this, clients can be sure that our processes are effective and our deliveries reliable.
ISO 9001:2015 is a system of quality management in an organisation. On February 22, 2016, we were verified and received certification for the following fields: Analyses; Solution proposition; Development; Implementation; Service and support of ICT technologies and SW systems and solutions.
ISO 9001:2008 is a widely respected management standard. It gives the shareholders, customers and others the certainty that a reviewed company practices its methods in agreement with clearly defined and effectively conducted processes.
ISO/IEC 20000-1 is an international standard of service management in the IT field. During certification process, an auditor (in case of Software602 it was a global auditor from the Tayllor & Cox company) reviews if the supplier of the IT services is focused on the needs of the customer and if the processes are in accordance with it and are thoroughly followed and if the supplier is continuously working on improving the current situation.
ISO:/IEC 27001:2005 is a standard focused on information safety management. It provides a guarantee that the certified company is aware of how valuable information is and carries out the necessary steps (technical, organisational and even personal) to ensure their safety. It also guarantees the individual steps are a part of a comprehensive system and are set in regulations which are strictly followed.
Key project managers and engineering specialists from Software602 are certified in accordance with the ITIL framework (Information Technology Infrastructure Library). ITIL is a group of manuals and practices for delivering a service in the IT field, they exist to ensure that only the actions which provide added value for the client will be carried out and that these are thoroughly monitored and directed.
Some consultants at Software602 have been certified in accordance with Prince2 - an international framework focusing on project management. This framework was originally designed for the British government, however other European countries, organisations such as NATO and the EU and hundreds of other commercial organisations started to use it as well. In contrast to the comparable American PMI framework, Prince2 is much more complex. It covers the whole life cycle of the project from the point where a decision is made as to whether to execute the project only after receiving the results. Prince2 framework provides the certainty that nothing has been neglected and that all parts of the project are under control. This framework is frequently updated with new experience from project management from IT field. The latest version was released in 2009.
Software602 is the only Czech member of ETSI and as a part of this membership, it is active in the field of electronic signatures. Software602 has successfully passed plugtests for signature formats PAdES, CAdES and ASiC. Therefore, the technological maturity and the leadership role of this company has been confirmed in the electronic signature field.
We passed a certification measuring the compliance of electronic information system and registration administration. Our information system has been evaluated as “High level” as it fulfills the criteria set by the Home Office of the Slovakian Republic, Act no. 525/2011 dealing with standards for electronic information systems for administration of registration.
eIDAS is a part of our company’s DNA, in the same way digitization is. We know everything about eIDAS and because of that, our solutions can successfully function throughout all the states of the European Union.
eIDAS is a regulation of the European parliament about electronic identification and services creating trustworthy grounds for electronic transactions in the domestic market. What does that actually mean? A clear set of rules have been established for digital trade all across Europe, mainly concerned with electronic signatures and verification of electronic identity. We follow the eIDAS requirements and their fulfillment is a part of our Long-Term Docs technology, which is an integral part of our solutions, products and services. In the Czech Republic, eIDAS requirements in the field of electronic signatures and certificates are implemented by a new law about services which creates trust for electronic transactions (the assumed start date of the force of this legislation is October 2016).
Formats of electronic signatures in implemented regulations are defined in accordance with ETSI standards. As our company is the only member of ETSI from the Czech Republic, we successfully passed through plug tests for PAdES, CAdES, XAdES and ASiC formats. The successful plug tests give our clients certainty that the Software602 solutions meet the strictest international requirements. Moreover, they can be sure that the compatibility of our solution is fully verified across the European Union. Because of that, they are able to verify documents created in other countries of the EU without worries and they also have a guarantee that their documents will be easily accepted in any EU member country. ETSI Plugtests™ are used for formatting mutual technological agreements when creating, signing and verifying electronic documents. The active participation of the plug tests participants helps to improve defining the standards in more detail and they also take part in the legislative development.
We are still waiting for eIDAS implementation in the field of electronic identification in the Czech Republic. During the legal debate in Czech parliament about services creating trust for electronic transactions, the minister of the interior promised a new law proposal by the end of 2016.
We support important activities. We know that the most beneficial aid is direct help. We support projects which have a clear purpose in different stages of our lives – from beginning to the very end.
The primary goal of endowment fund APOLENA is the material support of endoscopic surgery rooms in OPG clinic in Prague and in the Faculty of Medicine at Charles University, also known as “U Apolináře.” These endoscopic tools are very important as they enable careful surgery (that means, surgery in the least invasive way) which, for example, gives women hope to conceive and to give birth to a healthy child. They help women with difficult health problems and more often than not, they even save lives.
We know how difficult it is to ensure complex hospice care to patients. To care about clients in the terminal phase places high demands on all caretakers and on clients themselves. We want to help achieve a goal where the palliative care will provide adequate conditions so that even the hardest parts of a person’s life are dealt with in a decent manner.
The non-profit hospice organisation Cesta domů offers professional care to dying people and their relatives who take care of them. They run a home hospice in Prague which provides expert advice either by an appointment, over the phone or on the internet. They provide respite services in the clients’ homes, lend medical equipment and offer the services of the public palliative library. As a part of their activities, they also employ themselves in editing and education. They also run a Podvečer club and Vzpomínky website for survivors.
Hospice of Dobrý pastýř is a specialised institution providing palliative care for people in the final stages of a terminal illness, regardless of their age, social status or their place of residence. It provides inpatient and home hospice care and it is possible to use their service of a palliative medicine ambulance.
Partnership is one of our key values. Mutual understanding, a passion for the same things and the possibility to co-operate with each other gives us an opportunity to partner with the best in the field.
We integrate the latest technologies in our solutions.
Our experts regularly attend meetings of working groups for the creation of extensive electronic signature specifications. Our experts help to create these specifications which are then received by the European Union.
Software602 is the first Czech member of this association which unites important companies and technological leaders in the field to provide long-term readability of documents in PDF/A format.
