Edge Testing Solutions Exceeds Growth Target Reporting Annual Results of £9.4m

Edge Testing Solutions, one of the UK’s fastest growing and largest independent software testing company, has today announced strong end of year results, achieving revenues of £9.4 million and doubling its operating profit to just over £1.3m in 2015.

Edge will surpass it’s three year business plan put together in 2014 to reach £10m turnover by 2016.  It aims to reach a £12.5m turnover this year with a new three-year plan for organic growth of £16.5m by 2018.

Since its inception in 2007, Edge Testing has had a growth of at least 40% year-on-year, with now over 150 people and boasts some of the UK’s premier testing thought leaders and experts. 

The company continues to grow and expand across its key territory in Scotland and has seen turnover doubling in the past few years in England where it continues to acquire new customers.  Additionally, a new Digital Entertainment division has been set up to focus on the consumer markets including video/mobile games, online gambling, wider entertainment and the Internet of Things.

Edge has built up an excellent reputation with an enviable client list across financial services, telecommunications and media, utilities, retail and the public sector.
Highly competitive by nature, Edge Testing’s Founder and CEO Brian Ferrie, set out to create a great company to work for and has hand-picked a Management Team with a wealth of industry experience, knowing that the right people and structure were critical in growing the business.  The whole focus is on recruiting and developing high calibre individuals who can provide a truly world class service to its customers.  The Edge Academy, established in 2013 to recruit and train Software Testers, offers graduates, school leavers and career changers an opportunity in IT and has brought over 40 newcomers into the industry in the past two years.

In recognition of his achievements, Brian was recently presented with the new, prestigious ‘CEO of the Year Award’ at the ScotlandIS Digital Technology Awards in April 2016.

Brian says “I am very proud of the team we have here at Edge.  The company has continued to evolve as we have grown but most importantly, has retained its culture of putting our people and customers at the heart of everything.  As consumers now demand more and drive technology change, there is an increasing need in the market for specialist testing services to ensure that systems not only work efficiently, but also are fast, secure and easy to use. We are perfectly placed to help organisations meet these needs and help them deliver.”
