Jonathan's testimonials

I would just like to say thank you to the Equas team & especially Bernie Branfield.

From the very beginning of the transition project for 9001:2015 to the very end; it was handled very professionally.

I am delighted that we have now brought all our operating divisions in line with the latest good practice and I am sure our improved quality procedures will enhance our services throughout our worldwide operations. I would like to thank Jonathan Lea and Equas SmartPro Ltd for a very professional and painless process in helping us achieve ISO 9001:2008 certification. Indeed we have been so impressed with the process we have now appointed Equas SmartPro Ltd to advise the Group on the implementation of ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems.

We at Magnolia Air UK Ltd have used the services of Equas SmartPro’s ISO in a Box™ for the past three years. During this time they have provided unrivalled support and help with the implementation of our ISO systems. To date we have gained UKAS-accredited certification to ISO 19001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. All three management systems have been upgraded to the Equas SmartPro on line system, Activ, which brings all our quality systems under one roof, thus making them more controllable and easier to use. We would heartily recommend their products and services. We should also point out that Equas SmartPro’s consultants are very knowledgeable, not only in the provision of their own services but also in the wider scope of managing a quality assured system.

The service was ideal for a company like Port@l Ltd, with E communications, regular face to face meetings and access to a consultant at short notice via telephone. The pace of the project was ideal to suit Port@l's business and resources. No improvements could be suggested as we got where we wanted to be from scratch with a minimum of pressure. Thank you all at ISO in a Box™.
