Taking away the pain.
Managing hundreds if not thousands of properties is immensely stressful and that is worse when having to use an outside partner to bolster the in-house team.
It doesn’t have to be painful.
You need a partner that you can trust and is a true extension of your own team and in our experience as a team of fire consultants, there are a few key attributes that your compliance partner should have.
Competency of the assessors, consistency of the reports across your entire portfolio, regardless of size, purpose or location is really important. Ensuring your partner is not writing their own cheques by recommending over the provision of equipment which is easily done when they are not independent and using the consultancy services to upset other parts of their business.
The reliability that they will meet deadlines and due dates, not leaving you exposed but ensuring the quality of the reports by internal audits and external accreditations.
All of these things are important and can be found at Riskmonitor.
