Apart from our extensive base of satisfied customers, we have received formal acknowledgements of the quality of our work through our recent quality ceritification by Accredit UK, through acceptance by various buying consortia, and through the unsolicited feedback we receive. Examples of these are set out below.
We have achieved quality certification from Accredit UK - an organisation responsible for accrediting businesses in the ICT and consultancy sector.
The highly-regarded badge of excellence which Accredit UK award to selected companies is a measure of the extent to which they stand out from their competitors and are continually improving their business. Gaining this unique standard requires a business to achieve excellence and to prove its commitment to continually improving.
For ICT Purchasers, the choice is simple. Organisations can either take a plunge into the unknown with all of its associated risks, or choose a company whose excellence has been assessed. Accredit UK certified businesses have shown that they have well-trained and well-managed people, a track record of first-class performance and excellent internal processes.
