Our global delivery centres can provide round-the-clock working, and as a trusted partner with Microsoft, HP, and others, we can access state-of-the art test tools and solutions that we can apply in the latest environments and on the full range of platforms, from cloud-based to the internet of things. We will always work closely with you and your staff to ensure we reach a shared understanding of the process and that the necessary knowledge and skills are effectively passed on to you. We can also provide a range of delivery methods and pricing models to suit your particular situation. These combined benefits enable us to provide you with a highly flexible bespoke service that will avoid the costs, time, and risk involved in using your own staff and add value to your programme quickly by improving the efficiency of your processes and thereby reducing cycle time, enabling your organisation to maintain product quality at reduced cost.
Testhouse is a global organisation that owns test facilities in the UK, India, and the Middle East. This enables us to offer you a range of delivery models and identify the one most suited to your particular situation. We can work onsite closely with your own staff or provide remote testing, either onshore from our UK-based labs or offshore from one of our service centres in the Middle East or India. We can also provide a blended delivery model, combining the advantages of both onshore and offshore models, if that will best meet your needs. You can choose from a variety of attractive costing models to meet your particular budget, based on output, risk, and reward. Our track record and reputation have been founded on the extensive pool of consultants and experts that we have developed across the globe, each with their own specialist skills and areas of knowledge, enabling us to provide what your project needs when you need it. This robust and flexible structure means we can work when you need us to, bring in additional skills for specific tasks, and provide a shadow support consultant at no extra cost to seamlessly join the project if a dedicated team member is not available. Each project is coordinated and managed by two key staff members. A UK-based account manager handles your high-level queries and commercial discussions, and a dedicated technical project manager, based in the UK or offshore, acts as your point of contact for technical issues.
If you are looking for help embedding changes over a longer period, we offer a two- to five-year managed service plan, by the end of which your organisation and staff will have an effective long-term framework and plan to undertake their own software testing. The foundation of our service model is ensuring that we have a shared understanding of the project aims, the tools and strategies we will use to achieve them, the resources available to do so, and the risks involved. We will then agree on a project timeframe and entry and exit criteria with you. During the initial 2-month'steady state’ stage, we will work together to review current testing processes and identify areas for improvement, then decide on a test strategy and the tools, resources, and training required for it, and from this, produce an implementation roadmap. Months two to nine form the ‘transition’ stage, during which the new testing changes are adopted, team training is undertaken, and key business processes are automated. During this period, the test strategy is kept under review, the delivery and commercial models are defined, and service levels and an exit strategy are agreed upon with you. The ‘transformation’ stage lasts from nine months to the agreed-upon end of the service plan. A continuous process of review and assessment of processes and quality outcomes takes place alongside the implementation of the automation framework. Longer term, the knowledge required is embedded in your organisation, and the team structure is refined to reflect your increased efficiency.
