The Value of Certification to Organizations:
Companies spend time, money and resources in the development of standards for interoperability. An effective conformance/certification program is the only way to improve return on investment and reduce the risks and costs associated with the development of specifications. Certification is the key for consumer confidence in company products and market credibility.
Why Have a Certification/Conformance Program?
• Speeds time to market for products
• Increases the longevity of the standard in the market
• Improves product quality
• Increases consumer satisfaction with products thus maintaining per unit profit margins
• Differentiates products - creating a competitive advantage in the market
• Provides confidence to customers as to the reliability of the product

SpireSpark’s commitment to developing, running, and continually updating certification programs is clear in the care they have taken with the DLNA Certification Program. From the program’s early planning and inception to its successful adoption in the ecosystem, the SpireSpark team showed a clear vision every step of the way. I would recommend them for building a new certification or conformance program or upgrading or managing a current program.
