Finance and Insurance

Finance and Insurance

StarBase works with some of the most high profile banks and insurers in the world. We have provided assurance for new or upgraded core banking systems, consumer finance websites, trading platforms, mission-critical digital platforms, major ERP implementations and many other applications and systems. Our work within the general insurers and life, pensions and investment sectors has included everything from front end, customer-facing applications and systems to highly complex back office systems.

Many companies in this sector trust us to provide testing and evaluation services in both short-term and multi-year engagements. The volume of work we have completed in this sector has left us with a very good understanding of the business issues affecting companies in these highly regulated and extremely competitive industries. And our services can scale from one-off Test&Go performance evaluation engagements to full managed services.

Manufacturing

Manufacturing

We understand the logistical, commercial and practical issues that can hamper the launch of new applications and systems in the manufacturing sector. StarBase has worked with many different manufacturers over the past two decades. We can provide performance and functional testing services and solutions to reduce risks affecting - for example - core systems, supply chain systems; and digital applications and infrastructure, including cloud, mobile and B2B ecommerce systems.

We have worked with manufacturers of different types and sizes to complete PLM and ERP implementations, developing bespoke testing programmes to support major SAP and Microsoft Dynamics AX implementations. Clients have used our services and solutions in many different forms, from single one-off Test&Go performance evaluation engagements to full managed services.

Media

Media

StarBase has worked with a number of companies in the media industry, helping to devise and deliver performance and functional testing services and solutions. We have provided software assurance for new applications and systems, including digital applications and platforms. We understand how important it is that the systems upon which these companies rely function and perform as required – without them these businesses cannot provide the services that their customers and business partners demand.

We have enabled our clients to reduce risks that might otherwise have disabled both front end and back office systems. We have been able to develop bespoke services and solutions for clients working in the media industry, from single one-off Test&Go performance evaluation engagements to full managed services.

Public Sector

Public Sector

Public Sector organisations face some of the most complex technology and business challenges experienced by any of our clients. Some of the systems we test in this sector are not just mission-critical to an individual organisation: the effective running of municipal or national government, or of public sector functions depend upon them.

StarBase has a great deal of experience in working in this sector, providing the stakeholder management necessary to complete difficult projects, thereby helping our clients – and ultimately the taxpayer – to run public services and government organisations with minimum risk and in a more cost-effective way.

Retail

Retail

StarBase’s work in the retail sector has included testing core business systems and consumer-facing websites for both multichannel and pureplay retailers. We understand the huge importance of online and mobile commerce operations to retailers and the need for transactional and logistical systems to function quickly and correctly, even in the face of unpredictable, fluctuating demand.

We have helped retailers complete major supply chain, logistics and ERP implementations, including major SAP and Microsoft Dynamics AX projects. We have also helped retailers to build digital business infrastructures for the supply chain and back office functions upon which they, their customers and business partners rely. And we have assured in-store systems, including PoS.

We have a proven record in meeting the needs of retailers of very different types and sizes, with testing and evaluation programmes ranging from small-scale one-off Test&Go performance evaluation engagements to full managed services.

System Integrators and IT

System Integrators and IT

StarBase’s technical expertise is trusted by many other technology specialists. That includes system integrators who often come to us when they are in need of specific testing expertise. We have proved on many occasions our ability to identify and test a huge range of systems for technology companies of many different types and can scale our offerings from small-scale single consultant engagements to a complete managed service. In each case, our services and solutions, based on proven methodologies, help our clients to reduce the risk and ensure the success of their technology programmes.

Telecommunications and Utilities

Telecommunications and Utilities

StarBase has tested many different systems for companies in both the telecommunications and utilities sectors, from large to small and in forms ranging from one-off, small-scale engagements to full managed service arrangements.

This has included performance and functional testing of complex billing systems, along with customer-facing websites and other digital platforms, including mobile and cloud systems. Digital and online systems are now often mission-critical for these companies, in part because of the need to provide reliable self-service consumer solutions that can perform as required during sudden peaks in demand.

We have also tested the technologies that support these organisations’ core systems. Our work has also helped to identify and mitigate risks that might otherwise undermine aspects of critical national infrastructure.

Healthcare

Healthcare

StarBase has delivered a wide range of testing services and solutions to organisations working in the healthcare sector. Our ability to support the effective implementation of new technology for clients within this sector has helped them avoid unnecessary costs and risks as they improve the IT that underpins their business processes.

Clients working in this sector know they can rely on our technical capabilities and our understanding of the implications of the business and regulatory issues they face. Our services and solutions can be provided in every form ranging from one-off Test&Go performance evaluation engagements to full managed services.

Recent examples of our work include a Test&Go performance evaluation project for the NHS Blood & Transplant organisation; and for BUPA, a performance investigation of an application that had shown performance issues during the production process.

Other Sectors

Other Sectors

We work with organisations in many other industry sectors – including (in no particular order) energy, legal, accountancy, transport and logistics, construction, outsourcing and training.
