Delivering a quality service isn't a task that's ever finished. Once you've implemented a quality management system (QMS) and gained ISO 9001 certification, you must keep working hard to meet the requirements of your QMS and achieve continuous improvement.
However, many businesses - especially in the current economic climate - find that they cannot afford to employ a permanent in-house quality manager. If this is the case for you, your organisation may benefit more from working with an external QMS consultant who can provide expert advice and assistance as and when you need it.
What a QMS consultant can do for your company:
- Work with you to use quality management to support the strategic direction of your business
- Use Lean and Six Sigma tools to achieve process objectives
- Provide training in internal auditing and continuous improvement to help your staff manage and improve the quality management system

If you only started your business recently, you may be unfamiliar with the world of quality management systems. But hiring a quality consultant to help you plan and implement a QMS can bring many benefits to your organisation.
What is a quality consultant?
A quality consultant is someone who works with an organisation to design and implement a quality management system (QMS). This system drives continuous improvement and helps the business to keep its customers satisfied. Once your QMS is in place, you can apply for ISO 9001 certification.
Why hire a quality consultant?
With the help of an experienced quality consultant, you will be able to construct an effective QMS that allows you to deliver reliable and consistent results to your customers. Your quality consultant will be able to formulate a strategy that gives your organisation the tools it needs to improve, all while keeping your business goals in mind.
Finding the right consultant for your business needn't be complicated. Here at NPT Management Solutions, our charted quality professionals are industry experts who have helped many businesses to implement their own management systems.
If you would like NPT Management Systems to help you design a quality management system (or review one that is already in place), please don't hesitate to get in touch.

The world gets smaller every day, with technological advances making it easier and easier to communicate and do business with people halfway around the globe. An increasing number of businesses rely on global supply chains, importing goods and materials from other countries in order to provide the best possible product or service to the end consumer.
However, with a whole world of suppliers and contractors to choose from, it can be very difficult for the modern business owner to select a provider who will deliver good value for money and contribute to the overall quality of their offering.
That's where quality consultants like NPT Management Systems come in. Our experience and understanding of quality management systems enables us to help our clients choose the right supplier out of all the options available on the international market. We know exactly what to look for, and we have a superb track record of assisting with the creation of quality-focused global supply chains.
Additionally, if you have an ISO 9001 certified quality management system in place, we can help you to ensure that your overseas suppliers comply with the same standards as your base operations. It can be difficult to harmonise a global supply chain and ensure that quality is maintained throughout all of your processes, but an experienced quality consultant can overcome these challenges and keep things perfectly on track going forward.
