Sense/Net Ltd. implemented its ISO 9001 certified quality management system in 2003.
Our ISO 9001 system provides a paper-free way to document all processes that might be important for various planning, debugging, or any other activites of development projects. The company has always documented these processes systematically, but since the implementation of the ISO 9001 system we perform such tasks according to an international standard, certified by an independent organization.
We have implemented the ISO 9001 system ourselves, in cooperation with a consultant. ISONET, our paper-free documentation application, has also been developed by ourselves, and is based on Sense/Net ECM ECM.
The key to the success in our portal development projects is to perform our tasks professionaly both in a technical and a commercial sense. Our commitment to quality also motivates us to perform our tasks at high standards and the ISO 9001 system provides useful assistance in these efforts.
In 2010, we have adopted SCRUM, an agile methodology to complete all projects. Before that, we used Microsoft Solutions Framework.

Windows Media Service Provider
Sense/Net is the first Hungarian company to be named as a member of the Microsoft® Windows Media™ Service Provider (WMSP) program. The special expertise and know-how acquired during numerous successful projects of online broadcasting enabled the company to acquire membership.
The program lists and supports independent companies providing their clients with solutions built on Windows Media Technology worldwide. Members like Sense/Net use revolutionary solutions in the digital media market and are uniquely positioned to provide the latest Windows Media Technology services. In order to prove their proficiency, members of the program must provide numerous reference solutions of successful Microsoft Windows Media applications. Core capabilities may include encoding, live event production, enterprise deployment, advertising, and digital rights management.
In 2003, the professionalism of Sense/Net was proven by the fact that the company was already able to build its solution for the live online broadcast of the Hungarian Big Brother reality show on Windows Media Services 9 technology. The Windows .NET 2003 server (the operational system that contains Windows Media 9 Services, with outstanding reliability and scalability) at this point was not yet available on the market. However, with the help of Microsoft Hungary and as a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, Sense/Net had the possibility to take full advantage of the new technology as the server’s operational system. Our media technology provided stable and fast access for a record number of viewers. Sense/Net has ever since aimed to satisfy its clients with the widest range of creative solutions using Windows Media Technology.
