Compliance is a piece of cake!

Compliance and cake?

You're probably wondering why a compliance company are opening with cake. Well, who doesn't like cake?!

How difficult and frustrating is it (for those of us that aren't natural bakers) to follow a recipe that requires a dash of this and a pinch of that? Processes are no different. 

Many businesses fall in to the trap of overcomplicating processes and end up with lengthy step by step guides. These guides take a range of names from standard operating procedures to work instructions varying from industry to industry. The guides are the equivalent to the recipe; the recipe is detailed, with quantities and specific instructions to get that (insert description akin to light, fluffy cake). Instructions require you to add those particular ingredients in a very exact order for the recipe to work. 


Processes should just be the steps that must be done in a certain order to make the next thing happen. 

Let's think about baking a cake. The process for baking cake should be as simple as:

A streamlined process should encapsulate only the essential steps, done in the right order, to pave the way for the subsequent stage. This logical approach, devoid of unnecessary frills, not only enhances efficiency but also cultivates a culture of clarity and focus. At Agar Bowles Ltd, simplicity is the main ingredient, stirred in with a hefty dose of professionalism, a sprinkle of common sense, and a zest of humour - now that’s a recipe for success!

Baking Process

ISO Services

ISO Certification does not have to be difficult. There's a common misconception that it'll change the entire way a business operates, and this simply isn't the case. ISOs provide many more benefits than just a certificate on the wall, and we can help your business from implementation through to certification.

H&S Services

Health & Safety resources within your business are vital. Not only for legal compliance and protecting your staff, but also to protect your business. There's much more to safety than red tape, and we can help guide you in creating and maintaining safety systems that are suitable for your business.


Safety Schemes in Procurement. Prequalification questionnaires.

The process can be time consuming, frustrating and confusing to navigate.

We help our clients manage their renewals, both as a stand-alone service and in conjunction with their management systems. 


Staff competence and awareness forms a key part of business operations. If your staff aren't trained and qualified, how can they perform their job to the best of their ability? We can help with training requirements, making  the process easier and allowing you to focus on running your business.



Successful businesses are built with the right people and the right support, and we're no different. 

Just like the layers on a cake, we bring our own unique skills and experience.

What do our clients say about us?

Client photo

"Synergy first met Zoe Bowles last year when we ventured into the unknown territory that is the ISO… and from the initial introduction through to undertaking the work and aftercare, Zoe has been outstanding.

She was able to comprehensively assess our needs and requirements for certification, outline the scope of works and help us achieve our ISO 9001 certification in a matter of months, all remotely.

Achieving certification has enabled us as a business to grow exponentially and prove ourselves within our industry. It has given our clients, both existing and prospective, comfort and reassurance in who they are dealing with, knowing we have the correct systems in place.

We highly recommend Zoe and Agar Bowles and continue to look forward to many more years of working together."
