All custom engineered systems are tested with PC/97-99 and CSS's WHQL Testing Program (Microsoft's Certification Test Suite) and CSS's "PRO SYSTEM EXERCISER" and "PC-MD DIAGNOSTIC SUITE". CSS's contract assemblers submit key systems to Microsoft for WHQL testing and Windows Logo-ing. And, our Hardware Contractors are involved steadily with Intel obtaining the "Intel Inside" and other Intel "logo" based branding systems, to insure that we are fully 100% compatible with all Microsoft and Intel technology (and vice versa). All CSS finished systems are shipped from plant to region, where a second set of standardized tests are run-in to determine that each system has the ability to adapt to shipping and handling at your offices. In addition, our plants and regional center are designed to test systems for compliance with our network standards. That include Network Certification with Microsoft NT and 2000 operating systems, involvement in certification of them for use with Microsoft's new Windows XP and Whister programs, and Windows Networking (Lan Manager), Internet (IP, TCP, and all other protocols), Novell LAN, UNIX (NFS), MHS.400 and IBM Standard Networking (SNA) through testing programs with Attachmate, plus our systems are certified for upwards compatibility with all Wide Area, Government and Satcom networking systems, including some not yet widely available in use in military activities.
All CSS assembly and contract assembly facilities (Our newest Dolphin / TIGER Notebook Assembly and Test Area Depicted left) include extensive system compatibility designed into their design/engineering/assembly lifecycles, and implement such extensive Quality Assurance Testing, that our system exceed store bought systems' quality by a large margin: resulting in longer life, easier maintenance and better overall reliability. Our system engineering department ensures that systems are CUSTOM ENGINEERED to exacting specifications as part of the pre-manufacturing definition stage, to provide that extra "edge" that make CSS's personal computers the best in the world.

CSS's board and notebook assembly and contract assembly facilities are certified to and surpass ISO9002 quality requirements. All notebook PCs bear U/L, D, TUV, CE, CSA and a long list of other electronic certifications. Our Domestic Assembly House (spanning three facilities) is gradually nearing completion of its ISO9000 book, meaning we will be operating one of the few fully ISO certified USA PC Assembly operations.
