Minitab Inc., the leading global provider of software and services for quality improvement, commemorated its Australian office’s first year of operation during the 11th Annual Lean and Six Sigma Summit on June 3, 2008, in Sydney.
Sponsored by the International Quality and Productivity Centre, the Six Sigma summit brings together the leading quality improvement professionals in Australia and New Zealand. Minitab Pty Ltd opened in Sydney in March 2007 to provide those professionals with the tools and resources they need to improve their processes.
"The success of this office demonstrates our company’s commitment to helping our customers in Australia and New Zealand achieve excellence," said Barbara Ryan, president and chief executive officer of Minitab Inc., at the event. "Minitab Pty Ltd allows us to give them the support they need, and to deliver it locally and directly."
Minitab Pty Ltd provides sales and customer service for both Minitab Statistical Software and Quality Companion by Minitab™, a software package that gives professionals the tools, organisational support and guidance they need to implement quality improvement projects.
The office also provides Training by Minitab™ and Technical Support by Minitab™, services that established the company's reputation for delivering outstanding, customer-focused solutions.
"Companies that analyse their processes and make sound decisions based on data are the ones most likely to thrive," said Elias Alam, Minitab Pty Ltd's General Manager. "Our goal is to help them embrace this approach so they can maximise their productivity and improve their bottom line."
