Belfast based Business Management Consultancy, Quadra Ltd has achieved Business All-Star Accreditation.

Quadra offers world leading management systems consultancy training with expertise in ISO standards.

The business has achieved Business All-Star Accreditation in recognition of their outstanding contribution to quality and standards in ISO Standards Consulting Sector.

Business All-Star Accreditation is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria.

The Accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.

Reacting to the announcement, Quadra (ISO Standards) Director, Gavin Kane said: “We are very proud to have achieved Business All-Star Accreditation and we look forward to being part of this elite business community which we know will present us with lots of great opportunities to grow our business, through collaboration and networking. As an ambitious company, we have a clear vision for growth, and we are fortunate to have an extremely talented, hard-working, and customer-focused team that we know is with us every step of the way on our journey. We are really excited to finally be part of the Business All-Star Tribe, which we have heard so much about, and we look forward to the great opportunities that we know will result from being a part of such an esteemed community.” 

Deputy Chair on the Adjudication Board Kieran Ring, said in support of the announcement: “Quadra Ltd has achieved Business All-Star Accreditation. The accreditation is in recognition of Quadra’s outstanding contribution to quality and standards in ISO Standards Consulting Sector. Furthermore, we wish to recognise Quadra’s conduct in the areas of trust, commitment, performance & customer-centricity. Quadra Ltd Is hereby Included In The AIBF Register Of Irish Business Excellence.”

Managing Director of the All-Ireland Business Foundation Kapil Khanna said the accreditation, which is now held by over 500 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards but have nothing to measure them by.

He said: “We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness, and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics.

The All-Ireland Business Foundation (AIBF) is an autonomous national accreditation body tasked with enterprise development and the promotion of Best-in-Class in Irish business.

The Foundation actively engages and supports its network through peer dialogue, collaboration, mentoring and enterprise development activities. Companies are qualified for accreditation by completing an enterprise audit and are identified by their use of the AIBF’s Business All-Star Marque.
