Economic success in a sustainable way: How do we do it?

Constant commitment to our customers

A key to our success is our commitment to high quality, top service with outstanding flexibility, and the right strategy and solutions for your needs. Our repeat and new business quota are a testament to the success of our approach!

Responsibility towards our employees

Our greatest asset is our people. Via professional development, family-friendly and alternative models of work, our investment in health and wellbeing initiatives, and support of social activities both inside and outside of work, we have created a community dedicated to each other, our customers and projects. Our staff retention rate of >95% p.a. attests to our success in maintaining stable teams for our customers and us (read more about working at Metronomia)

Commitment to innovation and newest technical standards

Our ongoing monitoring and evaluation of developments in industry standards, innovations and technology, helps us to strategically plan integration, testing and launch of new systems or processes in a timely and non-disruptive manner. In doing so, we ensure that your projects are performed according to the correct standards, and as such are inspection and submission ready.

Maintenance of quality standards

Metronomia’s Quality Management System and team ensure that your projects are performed to the highest quality and data integrity. It is the quality of our services, deliverables and people that keeps customers returning repeatedly and our teams proud and satisfied. (Read more about our quality policy)

Our business model of sustained, moderate growth based on financial independence and passionate leadership

After 30 years of business, we reflect back on our growth from 2 staff in 1990 to 80 staff today. Looking ahead, we see no end in sight to our potential to support more staff, customers and projects. That said, we remain true to our roots and values anchored in meaningful relationships and projects. At Metronomia size does not matter, but fit does! We welcome all companies, large and small that are passionate about their products to benefit from our way of doing business for over 30 years.  (Read more about the development and history of Metronomia)

John Ruskin's law of business

Written over a century ago, John Ruskin’s Law of Business still holds true today.

"There is hardly anything in the world that someone cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price alone are that person's lawful prey. It is unwise to pay too much, but it is also unwise to pay too little.
When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that is all.
When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything because the thing you bought is incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do."

John Ruskin, 1819 – 1900

„We pride ourselves on being a mid-priced service provider offering premium products and services. Avoid paying too much for overheads, such as business development and marketing, and receiving basic services. Avoid paying too little and receiving inadequate services, resulting in higher costs (e.g. Change in Scopes), lack of inspection/submission readiness and, worst-case, a “rescue”. At Metronomia, customers know what to expect, and that is value for money.”
