CMPRO Earns Second Five-Star Software Certification

The Institute of Configuration Management presented CMPRO with highest compliance rating for licensed software

Online PR News – 28-December-2016 – PANAMA CITY, Fla. – CMPRO earned its second software certification from the Institute of Configuration Management (ICM) for its ability to improve business processes while managing engineering, configuration, inventory and product data. The featured software from Professional Systems Associates, Inc. (PSA) was recognized during its company-wide meeting earlier this month by ICM VP of Services, Joseph Anderson.

CMPRO is renowned for being the first and only product lifecycle management (PLM) solution on the market to achieve an enhanced configuration management (CMII) five-star certification rating. CMPRO earned its first certification in Nov. 2010 and a second after ICM revamped its specifications earlier this year. Both five-star ratings reflect mandatory requirements CMPRO fulfilled during CMII process improvement evaluations.

“By achieving the CMII Five-Star Certification, the CMPRO team has shown a commitment to their customers and the field that they are leading the journey towards true digital transformation,” said Anderson. “CMPRO’s certification was obtained after an extensive review of their commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution. ICM recognizes the efforts that PSA CEO, Moe Parker and his company have made to obtain this status and their drive to lead the PLM industry toward true integrated process and product excellence.”

CMPRO proves to be an enterprise-ready solution for both commercial and non-commercial organizations with a broad user base throughout the country. CMPRO reaches over 30,000 in U.S. government agencies and 10,000 in commercial organizations.

“CMPRO is the most comprehensive end-to-end CM database I have used,” commented Todd Loyd, Department of Defense (DOD) Logistician. “From the intelligent, process driven workflows to the dynamic asset associations, this tool drives efficiency into every aspect of business.”

With a licensed CMII Five-Star certified solution and an unrivaled approach to helping customers implement and support CMPRO, PSA maintains a solid reputation of meeting customer requirements on time and on budget.

“We are proud to accept the CMII Five-Star Certification,” said PSA CEO, Moe Parker. “Maintaining a relationship with ICM has been strategically important to continue helping customers achieve integrated process excellence.”

CMPRO was developed by PSA in the 1990s to provide a solution for managing compliance requirements within the aerospace and defense industries. CMPRO is currently available through both the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule and the U.S. Navy’s SeaPort-e® Multiple Award Contract (MAC).
