Quality Specialist Launches New Business

David BarkerAn independent Quality Management specialist with almost 25 years of industry experience, has recently set up as a service provider with a difference, to help businesses manage and improve, their systems and processes.

Relevant Business Solutions, based in North West Leicestershire, is ideally placed to service a range of organisations across the Midlands. The company provides quality systems management and quality improvement support services to a range of businesses in the manufacturing, automotive and service sectors.

The company is run by David Barker, a Chartered Quality Professional and registered member of the Chartered Quality Institute (CQI) with many years of experience in quality management with organisations such as Caterpillar, the RAC, and several advanced manufacturing specialists including first tier automotive suppliers. David has also helped develop suppliers in the UK, Europe and as far as Asia.

Relevant Business Solutions can provide:

  • Full or partial Quality Systems Management, including Internal audit scheduling and execution, follow-up system updates and corrective actions
  • Management review support and facilitation including data compilation, analysis and reporting
  • ISO 9001 Certification Body Audit support
  • Supplier development and much more, depending on the client's requirements.

It can also help firms with the upcoming transition of ISO 9001 to the 2015 update, which all ISO:9001-certified organisations will have to undertake.

Mr Barker said: “Relevant Business Solutions offers ongoing professional support to organisations on a retained management basis. Our core business in providing hands on quality assurance and quality management support to organisations which don’t necessarily need a quality professional on site five days a week, but do have a resource gap they need to fill. Of course, while we are with a client, they also get the added benefit of our knowledge and experience in order to make improvements along the way.”

“Spreading our workload over a diverse client base means that we can offer this high quality, bespoke range of services, specifically tailored to each client’s requirements at a highly competitive cost compared to not only a full time specialist manager, but also traditional contractors, interim managers and consultants.”

“We are able to offer this highly professional, yet cost effective service because our clients only pay for the time they need, which we review on a regular basis. They can deal with us directly so won’t have to pay agency fees and we are small enough to provide a personal service and keep our overheads low.”
