nFocus have been our test partner throughout the journey. They adapted to the HE sector and its challenges and to the complexity and diversity of this large cross cutting initiative. They have supported us in all aspects of testing and felt like a true integrated partner and part of our team throughout the process as well as helping us enhance our quality assurance approach both during and post project. The team are highly motivated, and it has been a positive and enjoyable experience to partner with them on this programme.
Having had the pleasure of working with nFocus quite recently, it is no surprise to learn that they have already been crowned a leading vendor at the European Software Testing Awards. During the tender process, what initially stood out from the crowd was the level of integrity in which they presented their pitch. It was clear that this organisation not only held themselves to a high standard but were also genuinely interested in the welfare of my organisation when making recommendations. They demonstrated a great level of customer service, transparency and professionalism, and were truly a pleasure to work with. I left the project with as positive an impression as I had at the beginning of the tender process and left satisfied with the quality of work that was produced. I would highly recommend their testing services to any organisation. If I could sum them up in two words it would be “pure class”.
The depth of experience that the nFocus team were able to bring to this engagement was impressive. nFocus aligned with our business vision and there was clear recognition of the technical, commercial and regulatory constraints under which the Smart Metering rollout programme operates. I was particularly pleased that the observations made were coupled with insightful and practical recommendations that we could apply without impacting delivery deadlines.
In a three-month period, nFocus automated the regression testing of our complex business critical application. What was taking twenty working days to do manually can now be run overnight, every night, enabling our Agile approach. By running the full regression suite nightly, we’ll achieve the equivalent of over £900k of manual testing every year! What’s more, nFocus’ solution means our non-coding internal test team are easily able to execute, maintain and extend our automation suite.
nFocus are our testing partner of choice and have provided us valuable testing services for multiple years. They not only consistently deliver under tight deadlines but their knowledge and experience of our domain and product has been invaluable in ensuring the quality of our healthcare application. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
nFocus have helped us significantly improve our approach to testing – specifically automated regression testing. They have tremendous practical insight and experience which they deliver in hands-on workshop style sessions that inform, inspire and show our teams how to solve problems. Their quality of service is very high and excellent value for money.
The security testing that nFocus delivered gave me a high level of confidence in the roll out of our new web portal. I’d not come across automated security testing like this before and the proposed solution was not only far more cost effective than any others I had looked at but I really liked the capability it gave me to repeat the test execution. nFocus were easy to deal with, quick to respond and worked collaboratively with our development team to deliver a successful project.
nFocus helped us define our testing strategy, implement automated testing and performance test our applications. Their consultants helped us enormously and the quality of their service was at the highest standard.

QA and testing specifically was the biggest impediment to RDT continuing to grow as a business and fulfilling our customer’s needs. We had lots of great engineering teams working well, but because we could not achieve and sustain a regular high quality release process, we were struggling to get our great code in the hands of our customers.
Nothing short of a complete rethink and reimplementation was going to help us. I had not worked with nFocus before but through my network they came highly recommended. In a very short period of time we have turned our entire QA process around and are now on the road to full automation. It has been a tough project so far, but the nFocus team have risen to all the challenges I have thrown at them and achieved a fantastic result.

We were pleased Microsoft referred us to nFocus as our experience with nFocus has been extremely positive and productive. The business development manager has been particularly accommodating and responsive in both helping us meeting some tight timescales in implementing TFS, but also with area’s outside of this initial work.
