14/02/24, Telford – nFocus Testing, a leading software testing and quality assurance company, is delighted to announce its initial two-year partnership with Durham University to provide a flexible testing service to support systems development.

This strategic partnership aims to deliver flexible and innovative testing services that align with the university’s evolving needs while remaining a cost-effective solution. Software development within the University ranges from industry standard ERP systems through to more specialised higher education specific products used by different departments within the University. This involves multiple projects running at any time including large programmes of work.

Durham University, renowned for its international excellence in research and teaching, is seeking to introduce an alternative approach to testing that supports the development of various systems. With such a diverse range of projects, the university requires a partner who can offer a responsive service capable of managing the peaks and troughs in testing workload, something nFocus Testing aligns with perfectly.

“We are thrilled to embark on this exciting partnership with Durham University,” said Ryan James, Managing Director of nFocus Testing. “By combining our expertise and flexible approach with the university’s commitment to innovation, we are confident of being able to deliver an enjoyable partnership that delivers outstanding results for the students, staff and Executive Committee.”

Under the collaboration, nFocus Testing will work closely with Durham University’s Senior Test Manager to support their comprehensive test management framework. The partnership will allow for flexibility in service delivery, accommodating both short and discrete projects and longer-term programmes.

David Laing, Senior Test Manager within Computing and Information Services at Durham University, said: “The ability to call on nFocus and their expertise, as and when required, is already providing benefits to the University as we continue to deliver against our ambitious Digital Strategy and programme of transformational change. Delivering tangible digital benefits to our students and staff has always been important but especially in our increasingly digital world and nFocus are proving to be a valuable partner in our continuing success.”
