How does our proven consulting approach work?

Mireaux’s Turnkey Consulting management system Services consist of turnkey jobs. A turnkey job means we assist your organization from the beginning of the project until your organization has achieved the desired ISO or API certifications and has the certificate in your hands.

We treat every job as a project. In this manner, we allocate resources, assign a timeline, and create tasks related to the certification being sought out. We then establish a project plan and use it to manage and control the job. Individual activities are based on the standard requirements, while time durations are based on experience. Final timelines are often dictated by the client and agreed with us.

With this approach, we guarantee the project will accomplish all required activities, meet established deadlines, and be successful. In fact, in our business trajectory, we have never requested our Clients to delay the project timeline, which is an achievement in itself!

What are the typical steps for certification?

There is no typical job, as every client has their own processes and idiosyncrasies, however in terms of steps to certification, we can summarize them as follows:

By ensuring all tasks on the project plan have been completed, Mireaux has high certainty that the first 3 steps above have been completed and that our client is ready for the Stage 1 and Stage 2 audits with the registrar or certification body.

What documents does Mireaux help with?

Given the turnkey nature of our consulting projects, Mireaux assists consulting clients with all required documentation. Depending on the standard being sought out and the organizations’ processes, this may entail procedures, work instructions, forms, or other specific documentation.  In general, the scope of work includes the following documentation but not limited to:

  • Manual (Quality, Environmental, etc.)
  • Policy (Quality, Environmental, Information Security, etc.)
  • Core procedures pertaining to the organization core competencies or core processes
  • Support procedures such as Document Control, Training, Risk Assessment, etc. as necessary
  • Internal Audit templates (checklists, reports, etc.)
  • Management Review templates (presentation, minutes, etc.)
  • Job Descriptions
  • Statement of Applicability (SOA – Information Security)
  • Conformity Matrix (All API standards)
Why is a Management System important for Integration?

Buyouts, mergers & acquisitions, and absorptions are increasingly more prevalent in the business world. When these situations occur, questions that commonly arise include:

  • How to preserve the quality of our products and services
  • How to ensure the new organization forms a cohesive unit
  • How to retain knowledge and talent

Integration means working together to overcome obstacles, sharing best practices to improve processes, and finding the right place for the right people in the new organization. Implementing a management system based on the ISO or API standards, can help find common ground and bring structure in what otherwise could be a chaotic growth and integration process.

How can Mireaux help an organization who recently acquired 3 companies integrate?

Mireaux’s proven Turnkey Consulting approach makes extensive use of process mapping techniques for documenting the processes in an organization. Utilizing these techniques, Mireaux can achieve the following:

  • Identify best practices
  • Find common ground for global processes
  • Formalize ad hoc processes
  • Involve all people, at all levels
  • Promote process ownership
  • Promote management system ownership

In essence, Mireaux uses the implementation or enhancement of a management system, as the catalyst for unification.

Testimonials

Project Description: Consulting, Auditing, and Web QMS for API Q1 and API 11B certification

I feel that I am a bit overdue in sending this letter to you to relay my feelings of our experience to date with Mireaux Management Solutions. Since the beginning, Mireaux’s engagement with US Rod has been exemplary. Mireaux’s consulting support for the creation of an API Q1 QMS and API 11B program, and associated audit preparation was
performed in a time frame that we at first did not think possible, since our own internal resources had tried fruitlessly to do it themselves over a longer period of time prior to Mireaux’s engagement. Your consultants were extremely professional in all their engagements with US Rod, both onsite, and remotely during the pandemic travel restrictions. We appreciated how your team seamlessly integrated into our team, and how smoothly communication and idea flow occurred. Mireaux’s approach to using a different internal auditor team during our pre-API audit preparation was also a brilliant idea and we appreciated that you use this not only to put a different set of eyes on our QMS but also to overcheck your own consultants.

You will recall that we had a very successful API audit with only a few minor findings. Mireaux’s support in crafting strong responses to those findings was very helpful, and we believe helped to cause API’s acceptance of our responses on the first submittal. US Rod continues to use Mireaux’s Web QMS software platform, and we have been extremely grateful for the prompt and professional support from your software team whenever we have needed assistance or have made requests for customization to our software portal.

US Rod is very grateful to have found such a strong and trusted business partner to assist in our QMS activities. As we continue to grow in our industry segment, we will look to expand our existing system to incorporate EMS and possibly lab certifications. We will certainly come to Mireaux first when those needs materialize. Thank you again!
