Remote ISO Consultancy

Over the past months, in these uncertain times, it has become a necessity to role out agile working solutions, for many, at a faster pace than anticipated.

At Mark 1 we have had systems in place for several years that have enabled us to work virtually in most areas. These range from our own bespoke ISO management system ‘Titan‘, a software package developed specifically to aid in the effective management of ISO Systems in a cloud-based manner, to fully embracing other collaborative technologies such as ‘Microsoft Teams’.

Embracing Cloud-based technology

The new normal.

Over the past months we have fully entered into the world of Virtual Internal Auditing, along with conducting remote Strategic Reviews and Management Reviews and have assisted many customers with their Remote ISO assessments alongside different certification bodies (with all parties working remotely). This has been hugely successful, and we are pleased to say that we will be continuing to offer our Remote Consultancy services for the foreseeable future.

We are, however, aware that certain situations dictate that a site visit still needs to be conducted to enable a thorough and comprehensive analysis. This is largely dependent on the type of business you run and the standard you are wishing to achieve. With this in mind, Mark1, continue to offer the best solution for your business needs, whilst continually bearing in mind the current risks associated with Covid19 and your current policies relating to it.

We understand that the transition to remote working won’t have run as smoothly as it did for us and in many cases, just isn’t possible. We are always happy to take any queries you may have, perhaps on how we’ve introduced our solutions to remote working, or in any other aspects surrounding remote Management of your ISO systems.

As always, our Paperless ISO Management System, Titan, is available for a FREE, no obligation trial, so that you can discover how this software could really drive improvements to your business.

Investors in People

Investors in People is one of the most recognised and prestigious standards for people management. The standard looks at the way a company leads, supports and manages its people, ultimately leading to a sustained improvement in leadership and increased productivity.

At Mark 1, our specialist IIP Consultant, Martin Loynd, is a registered Associate of Investors in People and will successfully guide you through the process.

The current Investors in People framework looks at the criteria within 3 key areas of your business; Leading, supporting and Improving. The framework has been developed so that it is suitable for all types and sizes of organisation and once you are committed to the Investors in People program your journey to accreditation should cause little disruption.

Empowering your team

By developing individuals within your operation, you will make sure that your workplace is an enjoyable and productive environment in which people feel valued. Further-more with an Investors in People accreditation you will be able to attract the right candidates to your workforce, giving you a competitive edge within your sector.

Many companies look to gain accreditation in both ISO 9001:2015 (The Quality Standard) and Investors in People, often at similar times in their business’s development. If a Good Quality Management System is in place and certification is achieved, for further recognition, both with your customers and staff, the IIP award can really position you as leaders in your field.

In safe hands...

Working within the utilities industry and competing with large tier 1 consultancies where ISO accreditations are the norm, WorkFlow Services decided to start the ISO journey to gain ISO 9001 accreditation. After meeting with Mark Nolan and the team and seeing the Titan software in action, WorkFlow were confident that not only could they gain 9001 but also decided to work towards gaining 14001 and 45001 too. Having little knowledge of the requirements at the start of our journey, Mark 1 have enabled us as a company to learn and develop our systems and create an IMS.

WorkFlow Services have now completed their Stage 1 audits for all 3 certifications and are about to go through the stage 2 audits from which they hope to gain official certification next month. This is thanks to Mark 1 and their knowledge and invaluable help along our journey.
