Why CSIA Certification?


Why should my company be CSIA Certified?

Attaining Certification is a rigorous process requiring an investment in resources — a worthwhile investment. By implementing CSIA’s Best Practices and confirming their adoption via CSIA Certification, you will build a better company

CSIA Certification is the capstone of implementing the Best Practices. When approaching Certification, everyone in your company should be involved in the process so that the Best Practices become part of your organization's “DNA.”

CSIA Certified companies are financially stronger than non-certified companies. One of our partners recently completed an analysis of the data suggesting a strong link between Certification and business performance. Additionally, some suppliers require CSIA Certification to be recognized in the top tier of their system integrator programs.
