Since 2014, we have been working closely with the Softline SAM-consultants. At the beginning, it was primarily about creating transparency as part of a self-audit. On basis of an extensive ISO assessment we jointly developed processes that are continuously developed by us and established worldwide. On a yearly basis the Softline SAM specialists support us during our global re-certification and give trainings to our decentralized SAM officers. This will ensure the long-term success of our SAM-initiative ", Hostadt continues.
