Our services

As part of our continuous improvement agenda, the software available in the Test & Build Toolkit is continuously evolving, with each unique requirement in delivered projects providing additional functionality requirements.

The current major building blocks of the toolkit include:

  • Redmine: Flexible Open Source project management web application. Cross-platform and cross-database
  • SQL Server: Relational database management system. Stores and retrieves data as requested by other software applications
  • SIGO: Automatically generate test, specification and O&M documentation via interface with SQL databases and Redmine or equivalent project management software – this uses official Microsoft APIs to create fully compliant Office documents, customisable to client formatting requirements. This saves hundreds of man-hours in documentation creation and review time.
  • Office VBA: Use of the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications framework provides a method of programmatically extending the functions of the commonly used Microsoft Office software, ensuring compatibility with client systems and improved future-proofing
  • Shared Wiki: Collaborative spaces to share specifications, in-progress documentation, ideas and comments.  Can be used with strict editorial control to distribute information or used to help create a team environment with free exchange of innovations, comments on progress, and continuous improvement brainstorming.
  • Issues & Bug Tracking: Centralised reporting and monitoring of bugs, issues, and change requests. Ensures all potential problems are correctly categorised and assigned, with lifecycle tracking from report to resolution and client sign-off. Secure user access allows client full visibility of issue log and change request status.
