Affiliate Certification

At CLUTIG we firmly believe that information technology companies are strategic allies of the industrial sectors of the region. A technology-based company in a change and growth agent for any trade or service organization.

Technology companies are facilitators of the digital transformation of micro, small and medium enterprises, which require suppliers committed to their innovative ecosystem, to implement technology that helps them increase their productivity and be more competitive.

In the IT industry there are many improvised technology providers, people with no experience or passion for ICT. People attracted by the boom of technological advances that look at it as a temporary opportunity to make money, but do not have a solid background in the subject, nor do they have the necessary personnel and infrastructure to meet the long-term market needs.

This generates unfair competition and bad practices to the detriment of the technology industry, also undermines the confidence of companies seeking the Digital Transformation of their business through serious and well established suppliers.

The CLUTIG has designed a certification process for technology-based companies, giving them a seal of confidence by validating that the IT Company is formally constituted and has the necessary skills and competencies to offer the technologies they provide.

The Certification consists of three stages and its purpose is to provide certainty to users and customers who contract or acquire products or technological solutions from companies certified by the Cluster.

Steps to be certified.

Schedule the visit of the consultant who will review your company based on an evaluation rubric. The rubric gives a score, considering the three stages, and with this, it is determined whether the Certification or only the Certificate as an IT Company is applicable.
