Late comers welcome

Easily plug into existing technology

Tap into market opportunities, even if you are late in entering a market.

Compete on an equal footing with those who are leading.


Standards allow you to plug into existing technologies and assist you in developing and marketing products that are compatible with previously installed devices and systems.


No matter how large or small your company is, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel to take advantage of the business opportunities that are out there. 

Faster operational

If yours is a start-up, you should know that you can shorten your preliminary R&D phase drastically if you apply standardized development processes centred on standardized products. In that way you build on existing know-how which is both cheaper and faster and gets you a bit closer to where you need to be.
