On A Mission to help organizations Raise Standards
A team with purpose and passion
For the past two decades, the ARMATURE team has applied its passion for technology and innovation to help organizations automate the way they manage standards, quality, and performance. Our software platform has evolved over the years because of the influence of our accreditation, certification, quality, and audit management customers, many of whom have complex data collection, process management, issue management, and reporting requirements.
Today, we are honored to serve organizations who strive to create competitive advantage by treating performance, resilience, compliance, and risk management as strategic imperatives. Our team consists of die-hard techies and business professionals who love solving the next challenge in accreditation, certification, and continuous quality management. Whether it is finding new ways of doing things for our customers, introducing new features, or keeping up to speed with tomorrow’s technologies, we are ready to support you.
Our commitment to you is that we’ll listen, understand your goals and perspectives, and continue to develop our solutions to meet your needs as they change. It’s why we’re in business, it’s what we love, and it’s how we can help.
Our Leadership Team
What makes ARMATURE successful is the dedication and collaborative efforts of our entire team and customers. Our leadership team exists to help enable each individual to perform at their best.
Diversity & Inclusion
We value diversity in the workplace and use it as a competitive advantage. By understanding, accepting, and learning from the different values and experiences of our employees, we believe that we all become more empathetic, knowledgeable, and effective. The ARMATURE team is made up of employees from multiple races, ethnicities, genders, ages, religions, and backgrounds, as well as differing levels of education and experience. This is who we are and what we value.
Supporting the communities where we live and work is important to us as a team and as individuals and we are committed to contributing as much as we can. ARMATURE currently supports multiple efforts in our community through our support of the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance, as well as our annual Toys for Tots drive. Our employees are also actively engaged in local programs to help feed those who are homeless in the Washington DC area.
Why the name "ARMATURE"?
There are several definitions of the word ARMATURE, and all of them resonate with us. An artist uses an armature as an internal framework to build a sculpture. It is designed to keep the sculpture upright, including any outward extensions. In electrical engineering an armature is the component of an electrical machine that carries alternating current. In biology, an armature is a protective covering for a plant or animal that can be used as part of offense or defense. We liked how these definitions map well to the areas of governance, risk, and compliance that we are focused on as a company, and the name stuck.
