What happens if there is an error or mistake?

Our Team, although thorough and conscientious, are only human and everyone, on occasion, makes mistakes. We do however have procedures in place, to try and minimise errors, deal with them quickly and effectively, should they occur, and ensure they do not happen again.

It is important to remember that whilst you outsource a task, you do not outsource the responsibility for that task, and it is important you have an appropriate checking process in place.
