Quality and Innovation

Whilst we are a small business, we place significant rigour around quality and ensuring our systems and processes support this.  We are proud of the consistent positive feedback and high ratings we receive about both the facilitation and administration of programs we deliver.  EMC has been contracted over the past 14 years by BMW Group Australia to review and implement quality systems within the automotive dealer network in Australia and New Zealand – testament to a focus on ensuring quality.
