IT Testing Services

Call on expert consultants to deliver your IT projects. Whether at project inception or at a later stage, our IT Testing Services ensure project success. Our experienced specialists support across all testing stages, including software, hardware, business process, organisational transformation, and other IT based changes.

  • Test Management
  • Planning
  • Resourcing
  • Execution
  • Reporting
  • Transformation and improvement

Our highly experienced test consultants are proficient in a variety of delivery methodologies including Waterfall, Agile and DevOps. They bring a continuous improvement and innovation ethos, backed by a knowledge base of tools, techniques and templates.

  • Poor decision making due to bad visibiltiy of testing status and progress

Three key areas for improving IT project and programme delivery success

Test approach and scoping

Acutest’s principle-based way of working shapes everything we do, how we interact with customers, and how we measure success. Our customer-centric, risk based and fail-fast approach help us to quickly identify the most imminent risks and obstacles early in any delivery lifecycle. In addition, we also focus on the challenges of change and enable you to:

  • Focus on testing of the most important areas first
  • Test the important areas more thoroughly
  • Prioritise development delivery to testing
  • Allocate the right resources to the most important testing tasks

Test management and governance

Through test management and governance, you can take control of testing and quality assurance, keep programmes closely aligned with business objectives, and maintain complete transparency to inspire more responsive decision making. We can also help you to successfully manage offshore, onshore, mixed teams, and combined teams from multiple organisations.

Our services include, but are not limited to, test programme management, test environment management, defect management, test governance, test analysis, design, creation and execution, assurance of external suppliers testing, outsourced QA and testing, test automation, and non-functional testing.

Test transformation and improvement

With a focus on people, process, governance, and tools, we’ll perform a structured assessment of all your programmes and projects against industry best practice and your organisation’s existing test capability.

Throughout each engagement, we will identify areas to apply best practice or existing good practice from other development programmes. This in turn will help you to create and implement improvement programmes that drive efficiencies, improve effectiveness, and make testing and assurance an integral part of your future delivery models.

Through improved testing capability, you will be able to scale up programmes and projects, reduce costs and time of testing activities, and deliver more technology-enabled change to your customers and users.

Are you out of time to test?

No matter how far your project has progressed, our expert testing specialists can step in and provide immediate support to get it back on track and over the line. Our proven method of focusing on what matters the most allows us to make the most of available resources, transparently track progress, and ensure clear governance.

We can also ensure late running or failing programmes are bought back on schedule using our Project Rescue service, which systematically identifies the biggest risks so you can rapidly implement the appropriate resolutions, regain visibility, and maintain control.
