The company possesses considerable expertise in its development engineers and programmers. Nevertheless, Stratiteq recognizes the value of using independent testers in its IT projects to increase efficiency and achieve even better quality in its products.

Stratiteq is a business and IT consulting company working with digitally driven behavioural change, from strategy to technical implementation. They are specialists in CRM, decision support and portals, and use leading platforms from Microsoft, such as Microsoft® Dynamics CRM and SharePoint®. In 2008 Stratiteq was selected by Swedish financial newspaper Dagens Industri for a prestigious “Gasell” award. The occasion also marked the start of a long and fruitful cooperation with System Verification.

“We came in contact at the Gasell awards ceremony, because System Verification was also a nominee. We quickly understood the advantages Stratiteq’s customers would have by bringing in testers in their projects. At the same time, this kind of initiative required a certain project size and level of complexity. A few hours of testing would not be enough. We needed to make sure each customer understood that testing is more than just finding bugs – it’s a complete process.”

Gert Lauritzen, HR and Project Manager at Stratiteq.

Capacity for demanding projects

The first opportunity for cooperation arose when Stratiteq was asked to build a number of complex, business-critical systems for a major customer. The customer had operations around Europe, but local IT systems were still being used to support the company’s processes. The new systems would replace the existing ones, to give the customer a simpler, more flexible way to communicate and provide information. This was a significant undertaking requiring high levels of delivery performance and quality.

“Stratiteq had maintained a dialogue with System Verification for some time, and had great confidence in the company. We knew they had both the competence and capacity to deliver when it came to demanding projects. We had the same goal – just like System Verification, we were interested in a long-term partnership, and the customer’s projects were going to run for several years.”

Strategic resources and cutting-edge competence

Stratiteq contracted a tester from System Verification with key expertise in test management. The consultant served as a resource in the projects by structuring test activities and regularly ensuring that the code being developed was testable. This took place through the consultant’s close cooperation with project managers to specify requirements and set priorities for which requirements would be tested. Testers and developers worked side by side, which meant that many bugs could be prevented at early stages.

According to Gert Lauritzen, it is a clear advantage to include testers during a longer period in the project, because they acquire deep understanding of the systems. They can also contribute more to the project and find more opportunities for improvement. This means that Stratiteq increases the return on its investment.

RESULTS: GUARANTEED QUALITY

As Gert Lauritzen sees it, enhanced efficiency and significantly increased quality in Stratiteq’s products are two clear benefits of contracting testers.

“An independent tester can discover considerably more bugs than the person who designed the code. Bringing in testers definitely increases our efficiency, while it also gives us the opportunity to create more functionality for our customers.”

Gert Lauritzen, HR and Project Manager at Stratiteq.

Today, System Verification is Stratiteq’s number-one supplier of testers. For Stratiteq, the basis of the partnership is that supplier and customer have the same level of ambition.

“We are extremely quality-conscious, and System Verification’s hallmark is quality assurance. In addition, both companies know the value of investing in strategic cooperation. We don’t want a solution for just one project – we want a solution for the future.”
