Online Consultancy for Developing and Implementing ISO 9001:2015 QMS

Online Consultancy for Developing and Implementing ISO 9001:2015 QMS

- Keshav Ram Singhal

Consultancy so far has been a face-to-face business, where a consultant meet people. He steps into corporate offices. He sit across table. But with the technological advancement, now a consultant sits at his chair across his laptop and guide people across the globe.

There are five general reasons to hire and appoint consultants:
(i) Consultants have appropriate experience, expertise and time that employees may not. An organization turns to a consultant to fill knowledge and time gaps.
(ii) Consultants provide flexibility of time. Consultants work any time - including nights, weekends and holidays. They leave when the project is completed.
(iii) Consultants offer the latest and objective point of view. Consultants bring the latest and unbiased ideas from their vide experiences.
(iv) Consultants are more efficient and they focus on assigned project with sincerity.
(v) Consultants may be proof of honest endeavour. Organizations may use consultants to show that an effort is being made to correct gaps in compliance with regulations.

A consultant may be an important resource to assist and guide an organization in developing, implementing and maintaining ISO9001:2015 QMS and getting its certification from an accredited certification body. But consultant's cost is a factor that sometimes small and medium-sized organizations find it on higher side. My consultancy is cost effective. I can provide you online training and online consultancy for developing and implementing ISO 9001:2015 QMS.

Based on my guidance, I can assure you that your organization can get the certification from the certification body of your preference or alternatively I can suggest you a number of certification bodies, out of which you can select one. I will ensure that your organization achieves ISO 9001:2015 QMS certification.
