The development of SuperTek, a software validation system, has led to Microsoft Gold Certification for the product developer, Next Sphere Technologies.
NextSphere has received Microsoft’s top certification in the area of application development.
NextSphere was contracted by CQA Solutions to build SuperTek, a real-time data collection and validation system for geosynthetics installations, and it is the development of the software that paved the way to the recent recognition.
“The challenge was to create a single system that can perform simultaneously both online and offline, collecting and validating data against sets of rules for customer- and project-specific requirements,” said Raju Dantuluri, President of NextSphere. “CQA Solutions brings the wealth of their domain expertise, and were able to visualize what is a laborious and monotonous paper based process in this industry into a seamless and efficient, paper-free solution.
“SuperTek requires a very complex set of variables. This is no Excel spreadsheet or simple data collecting tool. It is an intelligent system with real time audit of the entries, fully maintaining data integrity.”
“We believed from the start that SuperTek would be a game changer for the industry,” said Glen Toepfer, CQA Solutions principal. “But we couldn’t have made it happen without NextSphere. They took our concept and brought it to life. They gave us a product that powerfully delivers both in the field and in the office.”
Becoming a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner is a rigorous process, and is based on a company’s demonstrated ability to provide a comprehensive range of support for Microsoft and multi-vendor products. This support includes data management, software development, application development and others.
