Quality Improvement Consulting
Quality Improvement Consulting is owned and operated by Deborah Leary. We offer a variety of consulting and training services as well as the revolutionary CIS Continuous Improvement Software . Perhaps the most notable attribute of CIS is the speed with which it is implemented. In a matter of weeks a company can be up and running with CIS. This is possible because the software has a module and procedure for every element in various standards, such as ISO 9001,AS9100, ISO14001, etc. Your procedures focus more on authorities and responsibilities, but the actual process and procedures with respect to quality management are online with simple templates that can be modified for specific needs. With CIS, auditors can see everything within a client’s management system in real time, enabling the ability to provide oversight on an ongoing basis, preventing major nonconformities, and, therefore, making an audit quicker and easier. Our focus is on customer service and training.
