Brickendon Consulting, the award-winning financial management and technology consultancy, received the Best Overall Testing Project in the Finance category at Wednesday night’s prestigious European Software Testing Awards ceremony. The awards celebrate companies and individuals who have accomplished significant achievements in the software testing and quality assurance market.
Awarded to the most outstanding testing project in the finance sector, Brickendon was credited for reducing the test run-rate of a new e-commerce platform rollout from three weeks to just three-to-five days. This resulted in costs being cut by as much as 95 per cent, saving the client an initial £15.3 million, with further savings expected.
Renowned for its highly-skilled testing team, the Canary Wharf-based firm operates with some of the largest global banks, hedge funds and asset managers. With innovation and talent at its core, the team has introduced innovative ideas and techniques to help clients save considerable amounts of time and money and improve the effectiveness of the end product.
“We are immensely proud to be recognised for our genuinely innovative solutions which improve profitability and efficiency for our clients,” says Christopher Burke, CEO of Brickendon. “At Brickendon we are passionate about creating cutting-edge solutions and using bespoke techniques to drive change in the industry. This project worked brilliantly and we are excited to replicate our transformative approach across more organisations.”
