Satisfying our customers means, above all, listening to their concerns and providing them with all our support to meet their needs. As a trusted partner, we want to provide them with high-quality service, and we offer them the best possible support in the definition and implementation of appropriate solutions.
With this in mind, Quadient has put in place a practical customer-listening approach based on annual surveys to regularly evaluate the quality of its products and the level of its services. Listening to customers is also fundamental to support the company’s digital transformation. The reasons for satisfaction and dissatisfaction of our customers are thus analyzed, and highly targeted improvement programs are set according to the needs of the different markets.
Leverage technology to consistently innovate and improve our portfolio of solutions
Innovation is at the heart of Quadient’s strategy. In 2021, the Company devoted 5.1% of its revenue to research and development. Among the leading trends expected to have the largest impact in the coming years are artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, and machine learning technology.
Regular user conferences and workshops enable Quadient to present new technologies and updates to its customers and partners and discuss their needs and expectations. The Company is the owner of its trademarks and has 260 families of patents published. Quadient registered six patents in 2021.
Deliver high-quality, reliable and secure solutions to customers
Our commitment to global standards – and our planet – gives us a competitive advantage and allows us to deliver a high level of customer satisfaction.
We take great care in assessing the safety of the products we place on the market and comply with all European and international regulations. These requirements are taken into account during product development. Approval and qualification tests are first carried out internally before being confirmed by independent external laboratories. Our machines conform to the most stringent and respected environmental standards in the world, including RoHS, DEEE, EuP, and REACH.
Design cutting-edge sustainable solutions
Quadient introduced an ecodesign policy to reduce the impact of its products throughout their life cycle. This policy is now an integral part of the corporate strategy. The Company gives careful consideration to energy efficiency, use of hazardous substances, longevity, recyclability, modularity and the upgradability of its products.
The high level of sustainability and reliability of parts and components enable the Company to adhere to the principles of a circular economy. This virtuous loop promotes the repair, re-use and eventual recycling of materials rather than their disposal. Quadient continually strives to propose innovative solutions that respect the environment.
Provide accessible products and services
Quadient aims to create products usable by the widest possible audience, regardless of their ability. The concept of accessible design in Quadient software seeks to ensure both unassisted access and access by assistive technologies.
Quadient uses the benchmarks set by accessibility standards, like for example ADA compliance, Section 508 or EN 301 549. They consist of best practices and principles for making information technologies more accessible for people with disabilities.
While developing its solutions the Company has implemented fundamental accessibility features. Quadient aims to have its components presentable to users with disabilities so they can understand and operate them, for example with text to speech features, braille and easy access for mobility limited users.
