Gap Analysis / System Implementation
Assessing exactly where your organization is against specific System Standard requirements, or Industry Guidelines/ Policies, is made easy with QECS ‘Gap Analysis’ approach.  QECS can quickly understand your business, and review current practices/ procedures (whether documented or not), and identify where improvements may be made in aligning to such requirements.  Development of subsequent organization-specific Action Plans, described in plain English, may allow your team to proceed with System Implementation.


Documentation Development / Simplification / Integration
All Management System Standards, identify the need for developing certain mandatory documentation, which can often be a daunting task.  If not tackled properly, this often results in bureaucratic, cumbersome, and often ‘unused’ documented systems.  By concentrating on ‘simple’ operational controls, QECS are able to help develop specific future-proof documented standards, of value to your organisation, and more importantly, of value to intended users.

With the emergence of more industry-driven certifiable Standards, and in line with ISO developments (Annex SL), requirements are written with integration in mind.  Instead of continually adding on, often duplicating controls, QECS are able to advise on further documentation simplification, rationalisation, and integration, satisfying all subscribed requirements.


Outsourced Consultancy/ Support/ Project Management
With increased global competitiveness, and pressures on existing organizational structures, it is often more cost-effective to outsource elements of organisations’ Quality, Health & Safety, or other Management support functions.  Either as short term, interim support, or embedding QECS consultant(s) within your existing teams, can add considerable (CQI, IOSH and AIEMA registered) knowledge/ expertise.  From one-off problem solving, internal auditing, through full implementation of integrated Management Systems, professional co-ordination/ support may be elicited via QECS.


Auditing Programmes / CA Support
Whether you would require support in managing your organisations’ full Internal Audit programme, to maintain impartiality, and a professional eye; or whether to merely supplement existing team/ programmes, QECS can slot in competent and experienced (IRCA registered) resource needs.  If you have experienced particular areas of weakness from either Internal, External, or Customer-based audits, then we can assist, by adding value to operations.  Currently QECS form the basis of several large organisations’ Internal Audit functions, and have assisted numerous others in driving improvements across their supply chains.


Continual Improvement / Benchmarking
