Telford e-Innovation Centre’s nFocus is one of the first six companies in the country to gain certification in the latest segment of the Accredit UK Standard.

nFocus has been recognised as a leading company in software testing services and is the first testing company to achieve this certification.

By completing the Accredit UK standard, nFocus has been recognised as providing an honest, reliable and efficient service. nFocus was among only six companies to achieve this honour in the new software design, development and testing segment.

By using their Virtual Test Service nFocus’s customers typically save up to 50% of their current regression testing costs. The company is 13 strong and a Microsoft Certified partner. Managing Director, Ross Lister, views Accredit UK as an invaluable addition to the IT industry, and one which will help all aspects of the company’s operation. He added: “As a testing company involved in helping our customers to get the right quality in their products or applications we feel that it is important to support initiatives that help increase quality. The new certification will highlight our high standards to the market place, and give confidence to those that wish to engage with us for the provision of software testing services.”

The Accredit UK Assessor said: “They have been selected for certification as their business activities demonstrate a very forward thinking and dynamic culture that is well documented, understood and implemented.”

Vaughan Shayler, Programme Director for Accredit UK said: “By using the Accredit UK standard, nFocus is helping to make it easier for purchasers to feel confident to buy services from technology companies. 94% of people that we surveyed think that the Accredit UK standard is a good idea. That is because it solves their burning need – they can now get what they want without fear.”
