Businesses operating in high-risk industries such as construction, rail, gas, oil, and utilities can benefit significantly from accreditation. Being accredited provides firms with the opportunity to put themselves forward for bigger and far more lucrative contracts than an unaccredited company. Having a recognised accreditation lets potential clients know that your business operates to a high standard and reassures them that your business is both well-managed and capable of handling high-profile contracts. Many larger companies will only bring accredited companies into their supply chain so that they can be assured that they are a trusted supplier.

While gaining accreditation can help to secure your business higher profile contracts and increased profits, achieving accreditation can be a time-consuming process. Navigating your business through the process of having your accreditation application accepted requires careful planning and in-depth analysis. Using highly experienced compliance consultants such as JVR Consultancy will help you to complete the accreditation process. JVR can perform a GAP Analysis to help you understand exactly what changes your business needs to make to achieve accredited status.

What is the GAP Analysis Report?

So what is GAP Analysis? The Gap Analysis Report is an invaluable tool to implement on your journey to accreditation. JVR Consultancy will carry out the GAP Analysis for you and report back to you on their findings.

The GAP Analysis acts as a bridge that takes your business from its current position, to where you want it to be. Carrying out a Gap Analysis provides a means for thoroughly assessing your business as it is right now, and then detailing the steps needed to take it to your planned position, such as achieving accreditation.

What Does a GAP Analysis Involve?

Here at JVR Consultancy, we are highly experienced in helping companies to achieve the accreditation that their business requires. We understand how important it is for your business to become accredited. Receiving an accredited status can offer a wealth of opportunities to your company and boost its long term success significantly. Therefore, you can be assured that we will work hard to understand your business and the way that it works fully so that we can offer you the best possible service, and ultimately achieve the most successful outcome.

The coronavirus pandemic has impacted companies of all sizes, forcing many to reduce their business operation or sadly to close altogether. This had freed time and resources to focus on reorganisation and restructuring. Now could be the time to conduct a gap analysis as you have the time to think ahead and plan for the future, post COVID-19. If your business has been impacted by COVID-19 we recommend you read our blog article on how to grow your business during the pandemic.

Our remote free gap analysis is carried out remotely. We have been working remotely with clients for 11 years – long before the covid-19 crisis – and so we are more than capable of doing a thorough assessment without having to plan an on-site visit and put you at risk.
