A client was very worried about the work they were being asked to do, and the cost of the work to get FORS Silver.
On reviewing their previous Silver application , I discovered that they had uploaded over 180 documents to FORS. 180!
I manage the entire FORS process for many clients, and for Silver we expect to upload around 40 – 60 documents, no more.
Each “document” has to be communicated to staff in accordance with Bronze Communication requirement M5. It appeared that whoever advised them wasn’t sure what to upload so uploaded just about anything and everything.
We reviewed the documents, and discarded them. By adopting and implementing the Fleet Matters Ltd manuals and documents we only needed to upload 42 documents to FORS, saving the client time and money. Looking ahead, we will also cut down the time wasted on unecessary training, keeping drivers driving vehicles, not a desk or a computer.
If you’d like to see how I can save you time and money AND still keep FORS accredited, give me a call or send me an email. My guarantee to you is that if I can’t identify areas where you could save money and time, I won’t charge you for my time.
