With continuous integration, rapid delivery, and return on investment always in mind, our subject matter experts design thoughtful, practical solutions to respond to an organisation’s quality challenges.
Agile practices, advances in automation, and the need to deliver enhanced quality at speed has put immense pressure on software development and testing teams. Technologies continue to evolve at an accelerated pace, requiring a similar evolution of the methods and tools needed to deliver a quality product.
Talent shortages of experienced skilled testers is also compounding issues in the marketplace. Testing has transitioned into a specialist skillset with automation and development skills now a priority.
Whether consulting on a large enterprise testing initiative or providing quality engineering professionals to complement an existing team, Experis offers valuable expertise to support our clients’ testing needs.

Our consulting team brings decades of experience in a variety of testing disciplines. With continuous integration, rapid delivery, and return on investment always in mind, our subject matter experts design thoughtful, practical solutions to respond to a client’s testing challenges. Our team brings deep knowledge of QA tools and practices which we share with client teams through mentoring, coaching and recommendations.
QA advisory services include:
Continuous quality improvements
Experis promotes and integrates continuous quality practices from the start of development. This enables more innovative, progressive, and iterative methods such as predictive analysis, behavioural-driven development (BDD), and exploratory testing. Key performance indicators are established to track quality issues before coding begins. This increases the speed of development and reduces the number and severity of defects reaching production, at the same time as yielding higher end-user satisfaction.
In order to increase their value proposition, IT teams are embarking on agile and product-centric transformations with the aim of becoming a true digital partner for clients, focused on customer, value and speed. However, many IT teams struggle to change their testing delivery model, leading to frustration across every stakeholder level. Our QA transformation experts will review an organisation’s current testing delivery and propose a new quality engineering process that best meets the demands of the business.
We put together a team of experts to help improve quality assurance across programme, project or product, ensuring as a minimum that it is brought under control with a viable roadmap, scope, budget and risk profile. Our aim is to return initiatives to its original time, cost and quality objectives. Where this isn’t possible, we will provide options and recommendations available to the customer to enable them to agree a new baseline with confidence.
Governance & Frameworks
Our consultants work with organisations to design frameworks, standards, processes and toolkits across all testing disciplines. From project and product lifecycles to QA portfolio definition and delivery frameworks, we work closely with our clients to ensure that governance is right-sized, appropriate to the organisation’s risk appetite and integrates with existing decision-making processes across finance, procurement, HR and other central functions.
Audit & Assessment
Our experts are engaged to assess the current state of software quality for an organisation. This solution can be utilised for several reasons including: creating awareness, validating improvements that have been implemented, and developing a roadmap of activities for achieving QA goal state. The assessment is focused on three key areas: People, Process and Technology. A completed test maturity model will summarise the current state and will be accompanied by an actionable plan to improve quality. We can:
Audit compliance and performance of initiatives against internal standards;
Assess QA maturity and capability levels, benchmarking against industry best-practice frameworks;
Review portfolios, providing comprehensive recommendations in relation to alignment, optimisation, risk and viability (complexity, cost, resource).
Experis provides two levels of assessment to meet customer needs:
A rapid QA health check for an instant review and remedy for a struggling QA project, or;
a more in-depth QA assessment which takes place over several months with detailed reviews of people, processes and technology.
Training & Mentoring
We offer a variety of training, coaching and mentoring services, all of which are designed to an organisation’s bespoke requirements. Our expert team of testing consultants can deliver:
Coaching & Mentoring: including testing best practice, agile, continuous integration, automation, and governance.
Peer to peer training: we empower internal teams to become advocates for change, helping them to educate other employees around quality assurance and processes.
Quality assurance for non-testing Managers: designed to upskill project/product team members that will be required to operate and work in a quality assurance environment
Directing and sponsoring quality assurance change initiatives: designed to upskill senior executives and leaders that may be asked to lead a QA change initiative with no prior experience or understanding of quality process delivery.
Testing delivery services
We offer an extensive range of testing services across all scales and types of delivery, from complex digital transformation programmes to standard IT projects and digital product-based delivery. Our global reach ensures that should an organisation require a multi-national footprint, we can offer continuity of service across borders. Our approach is to develop a Quality Assurance (QA) strategy that aligns to our client’s vision and values, centralises its test efforts, incorporates modern test methodologies, and implements a cohesive test approach that minimises quality risks.
