One of the UK’s fastest growing and largest independent software testing company, Edge Testing Solutions, has today announced that it has been successfully awarded a place on the highly competitive Crown Commercial Services (CCS) Framework Agreement. Following a rigorous procurement process, Edge Testing can now offer Quality Assurance and Testing for IT Systems to public sector organisations, under the RM3810 framework.

Edge Testing is already on the Government G-Cloud 8 (G8) and Digital Outcomes Specialists 2 frameworks, and has now extended its reach across the UK public sector including central government, local government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not-for-profit organisations.

The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) works to ensure maximum value is extracted from every commercial relationship and improve the quality of service delivery. The CCS goal is to become the “go-to” place for expert commercial and procurement services.

Over the past decade, Edge Testing has played a pivotal role in helping local and national government agencies, councils and public sector organisations to reduce costs, whilst managing risk, implementing process efficiencies and positively improving the quality of services. The software testing firm has built an excellent reputation with an enviable client list across the public sector, as well as financial services, telecommunications and media, utilities and retail and has a track record of delivering complex projects on time and within budget.

A sample of Edge Testing’s public sector clients include Student Loans Company, a national healthcare provider, Big Lottery Fund, FSCS, Scottish Prison Service and South Ayrshire Council.

This framework enables Edge Testing to continue providing software testing solutions to UK public sector, including:

• QA & Testing Specialists
• Automation, Agile & DevOps
• Load & Performance Testing - no work package example scenario
• Functional Testing
• Infrastructure Testing & Environments – no work package example scenario
• Operational Acceptance Testing & DR
• QA & Testing Management Service
• QA & Testing Consultancy Service.

Brian Ferrie, CEO and Founder of Edge Testing said: “Securing a place on this framework is testimony to our focus and strength within the public sector as a leading software testing provider. We are among a small group of suppliers selected for the framework and this award clearly reflects our extensive and continued investment in and commitment to the public sector.

“We believe that fully engaging with our public sector clients and focusing on building a partnership relationship in those early stages ensures complete trust is built, enabling us understand their business culture and values and apply this knowledge to everything that we do. We can then focus on not only successfully delivering the required services but also being instrumental to the success and growth of their business.”

This is a one year framework with the opportunity to extend for two further years.

Edge Testing will be exhibiting at the Digital Transformation for the Public Sector event on 27 April 2017.

Edge Testing is a leading expert in providing world-class software testing solutions. The award winning company is typically engaged when organisations are implementing a new system or making significant changes to an existing system, to ensure systems are fast, secure, available and work as expected in an increasingly complex and distributed digital age.

With a strong team of almost 250, Edge is listed on the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 and has quickly built up an excellent reputation with an enviable client list across Financial Services, Retail & Distribution, Healthcare, Utilities, Travel, Software & Apps Developers, Telecommunications, Media, utilities, Manufacturing and the Public Sector.
