Only SSQC offers HM2 - the Hybrid Multi-Model, a unique, hybrid appraisal method that defines and correlates the position of an organization with respect to both ISO 9001 and the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI).  The results of an HM2 assessment are a plan and framework for improving software engineering processes and for implementing the requirements of the two models.

SSQC offers a distinctive approach to process definition and implementation and methods selection that supports the complete range of quality initiatives, from standards compliance, continuous process improvement, total quality management, to business process re-engineering.  SSQC's approach is based on the fundamental precept that the success of any process improvement initiative requires that it contribute to the success of an organization as an integral part of the organization's culture and processes - not as an after thought, add-on, certification, or enforcement function.

In all areas, SSQC tailors its efforts to deliver precisely the support required to help its clients build their organizations' capabilities. This consistent attention to organizational impact and attitudes is a critical factor in the successful implementation of any change.

SSQC's common-sense and hands-on approach combines more than 3 decades of experience in the delivery of software and hardware products in integrated systems.  The approach has been proven and systematically refined in 20 years of assisting hundreds of companies to assess their current capability and define and implement effective, efficient processes, whether they are seeking ISO 9001:2008 certification, a higher level CMMI certification, or a radical new way of doing business.
