News18 Mar 2016
Impulse gains Achilles RISQS verification as a supplier of industrial computing products and embedded solutions to the UK rail industry.

As a leading UK system integrator of embedded computing solutions and specialist distributor of industrial computing products for the rail industry, Impulse undertook the process of joining the Achilles Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) and became Achilles RISQS verified in early 2016.

Verification was achieved following the RISQS pre-qualification process performed by Achilles, which focused on a number of Impulse's internal processes and practices that relate directly to the rail industry, as well as evaluating areas such as Quality Management, Heath and Safety, Environmental Practices, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Ethics and Compliance.

Being a RISQS verified supplier has many benefits to our current and prospective customers, it helps to significantly streamline the procurement process for our rail customers by reducing procurement costs, simplifying the procurement process and benchmarking our performance as a supplier to the rail industry. The Achilles platform works to ensure suppliers’ information is accurate via data validation and various audit processes. Several buying organisations also use the RISQS community as an approved mechanism for tendering for contracts, both above and below EU thresholds.

On achieving Achilles RISQS verification Craig Stone, Impulse Commercial Director said: "Obtaining the Achilles RISQS verification further highlights our investment in the UK rail market and reiterates our commitment to providing the UK rail industry with high quality industrial computing products."

Craig Stone explained further: "Impulse have been in business since 1993 and over the years we have developed a strong presence in the UK rail industry. We offer a variety of rail computing products and embedded solutions and work closely with some of the leading manufacturers of rail computing devices such as Moxa, Axiomtek and Advantech."

Impulse industrial computing products already empower a variety of applications in the UK rail industry such as passenger infotainment, CCTV, remote condition monitoring and a variety of test and measurement applications.
