Edge Testing Solutions Opens Fourth UK Office

Independent software testing companies, Edge Testing Solutions, part of Eurofins Digital Testing, has opened a fourth base in the UK in Manchester city centre, to service Edge Testing’s Northern clients and continue its UK-wide growth.

The Manchester-based Digital Test Hub (DTH) will be Edge Testing’s third one alongside its Scottish headquarters in Belshill and another at its Birmingham office. Edge Testing first launched the DTH concept in Scotland six years ago and it was the first of its kind in the UK. Founded to meet requirements for a low cost, on demand testing services, Edge Testing’s DTH operates as a challenger to offshored testing providers. The DTH can be accessed easily by organisations looking for a remote testing service for applications and back office systems.     

Edge Testing’s third DTH in Manchester has created five new jobs in the area, with the aim of creating 60 new jobs in the area over the next two years, from experienced test managers and test analysts to trainee software testers.

Offering a wide range of testing services, Edge Testing provides device and compatibility testing, website monitoring and website performance testing to usability and accessibility testing, functional testing, regression testing, cyber security testing and test automation as well as an expert consultancy service.

The software testing consultancy addresses the shortage of testing skills in the UK by building a pool of trained testers through the Edge Test Academy. All Edge Testing’s employees are required to pass the testing certification ISTQB within the first six months of employment, and there is also further in-house training available.

Sharon Hamilton, Managing Director, Edge Testing, commented: “We chose Manchester as our third English base and location for our Northern DTH as the city and wider region both have a strong technology focus and reputation. There is also plenty of talent accessible from the local universities and colleges. Our flexible testing models have proven a huge success with our customers and have been a key part of our success in the Midlands, London and Scotland. The North is a highly-valued area for us and our aim is to increase our existing client base across the region.”

Now in its 12th year of trading, Edge Testing has a UK-wide team of over 260 people. The company has seen growth year-on-year and boasts some of the UK’s premier testing thought leaders and experts in the industry.
