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.

John Murray
I would like to thank Andrew and Jonathan on getting DHR the ISO 9001:2008 standard. Activ system proves that when used correctly all the documents and procedures are at your finger tips. The managers and office staff have had no problems getting used to the new system, and are now reaping the benefits. We have now had two external audits (MCS and ISO 9001), both have been completed within one day and both auditors have been very complimentary about the ISO in a Box™ methodology and the Activ System.

Colin Copestake, HR/QE Manager
Activ is a fabulous product and it certainly helped us achieve ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 more quickly and easily than if we had gone down the conventional paper-based route. Jonathan Lea, our Consultant, knew his stuff and was very helpful in keeping us on track and getting us certified.
I have recommended Activ to our sister companies in USA and I think they can see the benefits but so far they haven't taken the bait - keep in there!

Peter McMahon
The ISO in a Box™ system has given our company major benefits in the process of winning new business. Our existing customers will also benefit from our quality system and processes, which enable us to provide them with the quality of service they require and demand.
