Edge Testing to boost public sector footprint with presence on new framework
Edge Testing Solutions, part of Eurofins Digital Testing, has been selected to deliver digital services under the Crown Commercial Service’s new Digital Outcomes and Specialists 3 public sector framework.
Edge Testing already has a strong public sector practice with recent client wins including the Student Loans company in a multi-million pound contract, and other contracts spanning local and central government. Other public sector clients include the Big Lottery Fund, FSCS, Scottish Prison Service, South Ayrshire Council and a national healthcare provider.
The Digital Outcomes and Specialists framework helps the public sector to find suppliers that can research, design, build, test and deliver software applications and digital services. Since its launch at the end of April 2016, over 1,850 opportunities for suppliers to do business with the public sector, have been published on the Digital Marketplace.
Sharon Hamilton, Managing Director of Edge Testing, commented: “Being on this new framework enables us to service more public sector bodies with our range of software testing services. In times of spending cuts, our Digital Test Hubs deliver low cost on demand testing and are especially atrractive to our public sector clients.” Edge Testing is already on the following frameworks: the G-Cloud 8 (G8), G9, G10, the CCS Quality Assurance and Testing and the Scottish Government’s Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) frameworks.
This framework enables Edge Testing to provide software testing solutions to UK public sector, including:

Currently, the company’s two DTHs are located near Glasgow and in Birmingham, with a third slated for Manchester later in 2018. Both hubs service clients UK-wide.
