One of the UK’s largest independent software testing companies has announced plans to extend its footprint into the North.

Edge Testing Solutions, part of Eurofins Digital Testing, provides software testing services to public sector bodies and brands.

It has appointed Sharon Hamilton - formerly operations director - as its new managing director with former CEO and co-founder Brian Ferrie remaining as a strategic advisor.

She will be responsible for overseeing all operational, sales, financial and human resources activities and the software testing company’s expansion of its client base in the North with its Digital Test Hub (DTH) services.

And Edge Testing is also planning a new Northern-based office - potentially in Manchester - to support its Edge Academy recruitment and training operation as well as strengthening its specialist DevOps team to support clients in e-commerce, insurance, banking, retail, manufacturing, utilities and telecoms sectors.

Hamilton said: "Edge Testing supports a range of complex software change projects for diverse client base. My ambition is to ensure that the business reaches its full potential and delivers its 2018 strategic objectives through focused investment in key services.”

Edge originally launched the Digital Test Hub concept, which was the first of its kind in the UK, in Scotland in 2013, with the second Digital Test Hub opened last year in Birmingham.
