ESC thinks out of the box. They can come up with conventional solutions. But they are better in providing a solution fit for the company - one that feeds your organization.
ESC is focused on helping us solve our problem. Even if it means sometimes going out of the scope of what was originally agreed upon. So as a client, I can focus all my efforts on solving the problem.
We had no experience at first in dealing with Safety Cases and dealing with authority. When we have an issue, we ask ESC. Just one look at it, ESC already knows what to do. They advise us accordingly and professionally and tell us what to do what to follow and to know. Our partnership with them produced good results.
I do appreciate the times when ESC was there to help with an open channel and service-oriented communication. Ease of communication is what separates ESC from other consultants.
We appointed ESC to review all historical data related to our site. They demonstrated a very high level of technical expertise and understanding of the JTC EBS Guidelines which proved invaluable in our response to JTC. ESC was extremely responsive and we are very satisfied with the outcome.
