OUR SERVICES

Digital Engineering

Creating reliable, innovative, scalable software.

Delivering reliable, innovative software that can be scaled to meet user needs, requires an experienced, qualified and knowledgeable team, who understand the importance of working alongside you to iteratively build your vision. Our AWS and Azure certified engineers use a wide variety of technologies to build both specific and non-specific solutions that meet any requirements. 

Our test engineers will devise and implement testing strategies, use testing controls to mitigate risks, and use stress, load and performance tests to check the performance of your digital solution. 

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR OUR CLIENTS

Our flexible and adaptable teams have delivery experience across both the public and private sector. From transforming paper-based services into new citizen-facing digital ones, to using major cloud hosting platforms to build the environments and pipelines needed to shorten, automate and standardise the development lifecycle, our teams have the breadth and depth of skills and experience to meet your requirements in the most efficient and cost effective way. 

 

Our broad knowledge of test automation tools and techniques means we can cover all levels of testing including UI, API and databases. With high and measurable levels of coverage from unit level upwards, through to robust and maintainable regression packs.

 

Our Quality Assurance professionals will make sure your digital services work on all the major operating systems, internet browsers and devices. We work to obtain the highest level of accessibility, follow WCAG guidelines and stay up to date with industry best practices, tools and techniques to deliver services that are fully accessible.

Claudia Rothmann, Quality Assurance Analyst

As a QA I am always thinking about how accessible and usable the end product is for the user, and how to eliminate errors and bugs to provide the best product possible for the client. I love working with the wider team to solve these problems, and enjoy the variety of work and the new challenges each day brings.

The projects I have worked on so far have had a real focus on ensuring inclusivity for all users. I truly feel like I’m making a difference for users by making the products accessible to everyone.
