survey also confirmed ASI's leadership position in the association

Software Testing (IIST).
ASI met PCI-DSS self-assessment validation level five for iMIS. ASI conducted the self-assessment process of
review and implementation of policies, procedures and technologies to
meet the 2009 Payment Card Institute Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS)
Compliance requirements. Level five is the highest level, and applies

realistic expectations and then delivering on them, we continue to
improve the quality and strength of our customer relationships. This
approach was validated by the Lehman Associates independent survey
findings which rated us #1 for customer satisfaction," said Bob Alves,
