Give your business the edge with good accreditation
Do you need help with accreditation? Louise provides support and expertise to businesses who wish to gain certain accreditation to improve their business and also to satisfy the requirements for tenders. Or you may be requested by your clients or potential clients as part of the application to join their approved suppliers list. Having achieved a 100% pass rate for businesses just like yours, Louise frees up your valuable time and completes the application process for you.
WHICH ACCREDITATION DO YOU NEED?
Achilles Building Confidence is a UK construction industry accreditation and risk management scheme.
A standardised pre-qualification questionnaire streamlines the procurement process and manages risk. Accredited businesses benefit from non-duplication of the “vetting” process, and can access global and national opportunities.
Builder’s Profile database service is a positive for any small business that regularly submits PQQ information.
Aimed at subcontractors to the construction industry, your information is easily accessible for main contractors to manage their supply chain effectively and complies with recognised construction-industry standard.
Constructionline is a founder member of SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement).
Membership simplifies the procurement and supply chain cycle. All members that sign up to an SSIP scheme can be confident that they are fully accredited to the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Louise deals with the whole application process to let you get on with running your business.
As part of the online application process, you will be asked to upload information such as company policies and so on
Louise can work with you to ensure you have the right documentation in place, and to tailor policies to suit your business.
Once the application process is complete, Louise will share electronic versions of your documents with you and, if required, provide support the application renewal stage.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The cost will depend on the size and complexity of your business and what needs to be implemented to comply with the accreditation application process. Louise will discuss this with you and provide a detailed proposal for you to consider.
Please note you will also have to pay the awarding bodies’ accreditation fees. These costs can be found on their websites.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
When you accept your proposal, Louise will let you know the next available slot for the work to be completed.
Please note that Louise has no influence over the timescales from the accreditation bodies, and this will depend on the waiting lists they have for assessment at that particular point in time.
Why Get Accredited?
Companies who achieve accreditation gain a ‘shop window’ with some of the biggest companies in the construction sector.
Who Do I Work With?
Positive About Business works with many different types of companies, across a range of industry sectors. We consider the construction industry to be a particular speciality.
GREAT CLIENT FEEDBACK
One of the best marketing tools for a small business is first class feedback from happy business owners, however, word of mouth referral is how I obtain 90% of my client base. And I think that speaks volumes.
We have been working with Louise since October 2016 when we asked her to assist us with all the accreditations we required for our business including Achilles, Constructionline, Acclaim, CHAS and SafeContractor.
Louise completed all the initial applications with ease and we very quickly received the certifications for our business.
Louise now assists us on an annual basis to ensure that we remain compliant.
Having Louise on board saves us so much time and we can get on with running the business.
