How We Ensure Quality
Quality audits are conducted at different levels of the organization to provide checks, balances and document trends to ensure compliance to contractual requirements. The audit also ensures that our internal IMS – Integrated Management System, may be used at any time by any empowered CFM employee to improve the client’s operation, service delivery, and/or customer satisfaction of the applicable account. These methods provide the needed resources for creating a continuous improvement cycle for the betterment of the business, both customer and service provider alike.
