Matthew's testimonials

Matthew was a delight to work with - professional, knowledgeable and a good fit for our "can do" culture.

Paul Heritage-Redpath
Matthew has been great and has helped over and above what I expected.

Jill Bolli
Matthew provided an outstanding service to Langver. The QMS was user-friendly and no stone was left unturned with regards to its scope. We were able to go forward into the ISO audits with absolute confidence that we had a QMS that was fully compliant with the accreditation. We look forward to working with Matthew in the future.

Kath Roberts
We recently transitioned to ISO 9001:2015 without any non-conformances.

This was, in the main, due to the work completed on our behalf by Matthew. He continued to stay in touch throughout the time leading up to the external audit, to ensure that we fully understood the requirements, and contacted ISOQAR on our behalf to sort out some issues.

He was very professional, and thorough, and I cannot speak highly enough of the service he provided.

Pauline Holt
Mathew Gaffney was very helpful and patient. He built our system in a very simple way; for us to use easily. He was very approachable and couldn't help enough. His explanation of the requirements was excellent. I can’t thank him and the team enough for making a somewhat daunting process easy. Many thanks.
