I see you also offer a remote version of this service. How does this work?
No matter if performed on-site or remotely, this service is equally effective. To achieve this, the consultant requires a member of the ISO 9001 implementation team with a smartphone to serve as the consultant's virtual eyes, ears and mouth during the gap analysis. We also leverage Microsoft Teams (or similar) with screen and file sharing features. If you want to find out in detail how we do it and how we ensure confidentiality and data security, read our short article on successful remote auditing (which is done similar to the gap analysis).
Our consultants have several years experience in successfully conducting a remote gap analysis. If you are concerned about certain aspects, feel free to contact us.
What hours will the consultant be working with us?
We will work with you during your normal business hours and for the duration of a normal workday (approximately 8-9 hours).
I intend to use the ISO 9001 Certification Package. Do I need to buy this service too?
No, the Gap Analysis & Implementation Plan service is optional. The ISO 9001 Certification Package contains the tools needed to perform the gap analysis and implementation planning in-house.
However, this service can add value in many situations. For example, if you need a kick-start, if you want the insights of an experienced consultant, if you prefer a professional to develop an ISO implementation plan tailored to your company's needs, and many more.
Why is the ISO 9001 Certification Package a prerequisite for this service?
A custom implementation plan will serve your organization best when you also have the right tools to execute the plan. The ISO 9001 Certification Package includes all the tools needed to succeed. Our consultants are intimately familiar with our toolkit and won't require additional time to familiarize themselves with other kits or approaches.
