AAF 01/06

It is key to us that our clients have confidence in the service we provide. With this in mind, we have adopted the framework provided by the Audit and Assurance Faculty of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England & Wales, “Assurance Reports on Internal Controls of Service Organisations Made Available to Third Parties” (AAF 01/06).

The AAF 01/06 report specifies a series of control objectives that are relevant to our business, together with the internal procedures identified as being key to the achievement of each objective. Each procedure is tested and reported upon, both by us and by an independent Reporting Accountant.

 



Investor in Customers - Gold

In early 2017, we partnered with Investor in Customers (IIC) to provide an ongoing independent assessment of the customer experience.

The assessment judges us against the four key principles of customer service; understanding customer needs; meeting customer needs; delighting customers and creating loyalty - all of which are then split into four different areas of focus. This means the assessment process gives an extremely comprehensive insight into our service.

We are very proud to have achieved the 'exceptional' gold standard in all annual assessments.
