Phil Edwards, Managing Director
Digital transformation has become inevitable for organisations to accelerate business processes, activities, competencies, and models to cope with the current volatility of the business environment. However, embarking on the digital transformation journey and modernising the workplace to agile and DevOps while maintaining the usual operations, can be a vicious cycle of endless complexities for businesses. Set against such a backdrop is nFocus Testing, a U.K.-based testing consultancy that supports the digital transformation journey of enterprises by offering leading quality assurance (Q.A.) services in a multitude of ways. The testing consultancy offers outsourced as well as in-house testing services to ensure that the software meets the required quality levels. While the outsourced testing services allow clients to scale and manage the high peaks of their testing requirements, the in-house testing services supplement the internal test team of the clients. The company’s accomplished, friendly, and reliable team of testers ensures timely delivery of products and services to the market, allowing clients to obtain a maximum return on investment (ROI). “We complement organisations in their digital transformation journey by understanding their business values and working relentlessly to help them achieve their goals,” states Phil Edwards, Managing Director at nFocus.
As part of its Q.A. services, nFocus provides the testing Health Check that reviews the software testing approach of an organisation and delivers the necessary roadmap for improvement.

Along with Health Checks, the company offers appropriate resources, tools, and readiness to enable its clients to realise the benefits of agile and DevOps without compromising on quality or delivery schedule. The DevOps test engineers of nFocus provide the necessary impetus to help accelerate automation efforts by defining requirements and acceptance criteria to drive Q.A. practices and the test approach across the team. Ryan James, Marketing and Client Director at nFocus states, “As a quality assurance provider, we ensure a frictionless deployment of tested codes into production for the agile methodologies and DevOps frameworks.” The company offers several specialist Q.A. services that include Load and Performance Testing to ensure that the solution meets all the non-functional requirements under high load and peak demand. User Acceptance Testing (UAT) guarantees that the software can handle the required tasks in a real-world scenario.
A testament to the efficiency of nFocus is the customer success story of one of the largest universities of the U.K., Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU). With a community of 38,000 students, the university planned a four-year project to improve every area of its administrative processes through a large-scale digital transformation. The ongoing project will replace the legacy systems and technologies of the university to enhance the quality of service at every student touchpoint. nFocus has been brought-in as an outsourced testing partner to deliver all the required testing services and ensure an excellent quality standard for the university’s software solution. Andrew Kemp, Transformation Director at MMU, says, “nFocus has supported us in all aspects of testing like a truly integrated partner. They became a part of our team throughout the process and helped us enhance our quality assurance approach both during and post-project.”
With an extensive experience of 19 years in software testing, and an ample list of satisfied clientele such as Microsoft, SSE, AXA, and many others, nFocus has carved a niche as the longest established U.K.-owned testing consultancy in the U.K. The company has been recognised with a range of awards including being named Leading Vendor by the European Software Testing Awards, a European Business Awards ‘One to Watch’, a Microsoft Worldwide Partner of the Year Award, and several others. They also made the CIO Applications Europe top 10 software testing services companies in Europe for 2019. This year, nFocus has already gained more clients than the previous year and expects to grow organically through innovations in the coming years.
