CASE STUDY: Context Consulting

Context Consulting achieves continued ISO 9001 & 27001 certification with Compliant.

Why did Context Consulting initially decide to invest in ISO?

The London based market research and strategy experts initially gained ISO 9001 (quality) and 27001 (information security) to strengthen their position within their industry, demonstrate their commitment to quality to their international client base and win new clients.

Head of Operations, Hollie Davies, who is instrumental in maintaining the standards within the business, commented, ‘Having two ISO standards has certainly supported our business growth plans, when onboarding new clients, to show we are committed to quality and information security via the standards certainly ticks a lot of boxes.  It’s certainly made it easier for our business development department to attract new business which in turn, has increased our turnover and profit.’

The Process

As part of our ongoing support package, we worked with Context Consulting throughout the year, ensuring they were prepared and all documentation was ready for their annual surveillance audit.

Discussing the ISO process, Hollie continued, ‘With the support of the Compliant team, the audits are certainly getting easier every year as we learn how the processes work.  We organise the work throughout the year so we don’t panic at the last minute and this certainly helps us when audit day arrives.’

The Outcome

Following the yearly surveillance audit, Context Consulting successfully retained both their quality and information security standards.  With our ongoing support packages, the benefits are clear to see.  Our team are always on hand to answer any queries, regularly keep in touch via Teams meetings, send monthly ISO newsletters, prepare documentation and are present during the audits.  This hands-on and flexible approach ensures our clients can get on with the business of running their company while the ISO standards are maintained.

Hollie was delighted with the successful outcome of the audit, ‘I would like to thank Danielle for her support in preparing for the audit and her assistance throughout the day, she answered every email I sent and was certainly a reassuring presence.  We’re looking forward to continuing to embed the standards within the business, growing our portfolio of clients and working with Compliant to enhance our commitment to quality and information security.’

Compliant’s Internal audit manager, Danielle Barry, who supported Hollie and Context Consuting through their surveillance audit commented, ‘The team have been great to work with and have really taken the time to ensure that throughout the year, their documentation was kept up to date and uploaded to their management system.  This makes it a lot easier when audit day arrives as there’s no panic and the audit runs smoothly.  We’re looking forward to working with Context Consulting team moving forward.’
