Leading Skills Development Consultancy and Training Company in South Africa Maintained QMS Compliance Through Effivity

Maintaining quality management system (QMS) compliance is critical for any company striving for excellence, especially in the competitive field of skills development and training. One leading consultancy and training company in South Africa successfully achieved this by implementing Effivity, an advanced quality management software, into their operations.

Let's explore how the company utilized Effivity to streamline processes, enhance efficiency and ensure ongoing compliance with quality standards.

About the Company

The South African consulting company was started by three young engineers passionate about social and economic development through entrepreneurship.

With an aim of empowering individuals and organizations through specialized training solutions, the company offers a wide range of training and consultancy services. However, the primary challenge for the consultancy was maintaining compliance with the rigorous standards of ISO 9001. This international standard requires organizations to meet specific criteria to ensure their products and services consistently meet customer and regulatory requirements.

For a skill development and training company, this translates to delivering high-quality training programs, continuously improving processes and effectively managing documentation and records.

So, to maintain its quality management system and adhere to industry standards, the company needed reliable QMS software to manage and optimize its operations.

"We wanted to maintain our long-term mutually beneficial partnerships with clients and other key stakeholders and maintain and implement solutions which contribute towards the advancement of our clients. We wanted to continually develop and improve our operational, financial and quality management strategies to ensure sustainability, growth and customer satisfaction. We were looking for QMS software that will help us achieve our missions without investing too much and we have found it with Effivity," said General Manager.

Effivity's QMS software is designed to comply with ISO 9001:2015 requirements by streamlining the company's management systems and enhancing operational efficiency to meet the standards. The software solution accurately captures the company's interest in improving its services and processes innovatively.

Effivity QMS Software

By implementing Effivity's QMS software, the South African consulting company was able to simplify quality systems by establishing clear quality processes, managing and controlling documents, enhancing accessibility and ensuring compliance. Effivity's team worked closely with the consultancy to ensure a smooth transition.

QMS software offered access to a range of valuable modules to improve the quality of services within the organization and achieve maximum customer satisfaction. The HR module of Effivity helped the company identify relevant training topics and create supporting documentation to impart training and develop competencies.

Further, the training attendance module makes it easy to capture the attendance of employees attending the training session so that the company can ensure everyone is up-to-date with the sessions. The training evaluation module helps identify and define training evaluation methods to track progress and measure the effectiveness of the training sessions.

Here are the various features of Effivity's QMS software-
