Forget about paperwork costs. All our audits are carried out using bespoke software for quality, accuracy and consistency.
London, UK (PRWEB UK) 20 March 2012
New research carried out by the Forum of Private Business (FPB) as part of its quarterly Referendum Survey has found that small and medium-sized companies face an annual bill of £2,072 million in time and money spent on health and safety guidelines, while paperwork surrounding equality and diversity rules cost £367 million. Direct Enquiries, a MITIE business, help small and medium sized businesses to minimise these costs while maximising revenue potential.
“We transform data into meaningful and actionable information to support and validate decision making. Forget about paperwork costs,” says Grant Kennedy, Managing Director of Direct Enquiries Ltd. “All our audits are carried out using bespoke software for quality, accuracy and consistency. Our online FM Reporting Tool provides at-a-glance status reporting to identify key risks and priorities.”
With over a decade of expertise and knowledge of auditing all types of organisations Direct Enquiries offer a range of compliance services, which are designed to help organisations identify and manage the risk presented by Part M of Building Regulations, BS8300:2009, the Equality Act 2010, The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
In addition to minimising cost and risk, Direct Enquiries help small and medium sized businesses to maximise potential through increasing footfall and customer satisfaction. Operating three popular websites, Direct Enquiries can provide detailed information of businesses and services to potential customers with specific access requirements, including disabled people, older people and parents with young children and buggies.
