What our clients say
“There have been many times where we did not make adequate progress on PPE issues. Every time, Simon [Barkley] deals with us with respect. He works with us. He is the BEST example of how much one can accomplish with respect and dealing with people with dignity and understanding. Even when he is under pressure, he gives us time and deals with us with patience. He tries to see what is keeping us from making progress. He tried to help us instead of pressuring us. And, yet at the end of the day, he makes us feel like we MUST make progress on the issues and we work hard because we want to, not because we feel pressured to. Things get done!”
Mamun Rashid, PMP, ITIL, Common Platform Engineer
“Tim [Moore], it has been a great pleasure to work with you and explore the mystery world of Eikon Test environments. You’re a very nice person in communication, negotiation and collaboration. I hope the new position will drive you to an even higher level of interest, professional skills training and major achievements”
“The Experimentus TMMi Survey has provided us with valuable insight into our existing testing operations, and has enabled us to implement consistent operational delivery processes across the business. This has been a cornerstone to our growing success in the testing marketplace”
Stefan Van Overtveldt, Chief Engineer
“I have been using Experimentus services on the Thomson Reuters Eikon program, for 18 months. They initially performed an Audit on our performance testing strategy, and then after implemented some mitigation actions that they suggested. The people there have demonstrated a very good level of skills, a rigorous approach, high dedication and exceptional adaptability to changes and unexpected events. They have been able to work with all internal and external teams in an efficient way, always bringing very constructive feedback, with easy to implement action plans. I highly recommend Experimentus who have been a key player in the success of our program.”
Joël Masset, Global Head of Quality Assurance. S&T Desktop Platform
“We would not have made the progress we have in the past year without your assistance and constant encouragement. Speaking to the test guys they’ve all been enthused by your involvement and from my perspective the testing function is now having a real and beneficial influence on the rest of the organisation. You’ve left a worthwhile and lasting legacy. I’d also like to extend my thanks to Geoff and Julian, for their support over the last 18 months or so.
As well as enjoying working with Brian as a person, I’ve genuinely enjoyed working with Experimentus as a company. You’ve always been around when required yet have never been obtrusive. I think you’ve lived out your objective to leave organisations empowered to go forward and not sought as so many suppliers do to merely look for what you can get out of it for yourself.”
John Cantley, Senior Project Manager
Process Improvement & Quality Assurance – Corporate IT
“Experimentus had previously worked with two other areas of my organisation and had been recommended by them. My initial decision to use Experimentus was on the basis that they understood our operating model and ethos and were able to demonstrate that knowledge in our initial discussions. As the work unfolded they showed their expertise in the field of testing and an ability to balance theoretical models and practical requirements and constraints. The consultants were professional, articulate and enthusiastic and the results have definitely added value to my organisation.”
Mark Eldred, Head of Testing
Software Development & Testing – Insurance & Investment
“1E has earned a solid reputation amongst its customers for its technical expertise in Windows Systems Management. With over 8 million users of our software worldwide, our software development is technically demanding and our standards are high. Experimentus stood out as being a small company with a great deal of experience. With business objectives and values very much in line with our own, combined with their pragmatic approach to delivery, they were the obvious supplier of choice.
The consultants from Experimentus grasped our business requirements rapidly. They tailored solutions and ensured that they were implemented in such a way as to fit with our organisational culture. Responsible for reviewing and implementing our test process, growing our test team and its management, Experimentus has played a fundamental role in enhancing the quality of our software, helping us to improve our competitive advantage.”
Sophie Chang, Head of Software
Chaucer Holdings Plc
”Previous experience has fuelled scepticism amongst us, purely because something always disappoints: be it in delivery, the recommendations or service. Experimentus quickly dispelled any reluctance we had. They exceeded our expectations in many ways and provided us with valuable independent advice.
Our confidence in Experimentus is underpinned by their honesty, integrity and proven ability to understand Chaucer’s commercial requirements. They have always put our interests, as the client, first conveying total impartiality in their approach to recommending tools and suppliers.
Experimentus has been instrumental in helping Chaucer to validate its requirements and verify the optimum solutions/suppliers for us to start new initiatives. We very much look forward to working with them in the future”
Clive Willis, Senior Business Analyst
”ARUP selected Experimentus because of its professionalism, coupled with its unique bespoke service offerings. We were particularly impressed by their initial approach, which wasn’t an aggressive sales pitch, and rather, a very comfortable and positive conversation.
Experimentus actively listened and really took the time to understand our requirements and how we operate. One of the most important issues for us was that they didn’t try to sell us a standard product but rather a solution that was specifically relevant to us.
The initial project was fulfilled and completed on time and to budget. We are now looking to engage further with Experimentus as a result.”
Aoun Shamsi, Web Delivery Manager
Loyalty Management Group
“We were looking to put together an independent testing team in India to work alongside an offshore development provider in an Agile Project Team. We were able to work with Experimentus and their existing Indian testing partner to mobilise a project team at short notice. We were able to get confidence in a new team and off-shoring model relatively quickly through leveraging Experimentus’ existing relationships.
Through open dialogue and Experimentus’ experience in the UK testing industry, they were able to understand our needs quickly. They were also flexible in their approach and working in a multi-supplier environment. As a result of our relationship with Experimentus we have been able to set up an effective project team much quicker than if we had to forge new off-shore relationships from scratch. The team is working really well together and the project is set to deliver on time and to budget.”
Jenny Martin, Systems Delivery Manager
“Experimentus stood out in the ITT process as knowledgeable in their field and being able to bring the right balance between testing theory and pragmatism.
Impressed by the enthusiasm and commitment of all the resources supplied. They did not just deliver on time and to budget but also sought out opportunities to add value borne from their understanding of the client and their wide ranging industry experience. They are clearly experts in the field of TMM but are also able to bring this to life to both testing and non testing colleagues. They quickly understood our needs and challenges and adapted their style and approach accordingly whilst maintaining the necessary rigour and independence that the activity required.
Experimentus demonstrated that they could add value to our organisation very quickly and were prepared to challenge and question without reverting to a theoretical high ground. They differentiate from the competition in that they are a niche provider whose aim is to work with their customers to deliver improvements and not just look for additional sales opportunities. They have real experience of the day to day issues that impact testing and apply their industry and personal experience to resolve these challenges.”
Allan Woodcock, Head of Testing – Retail Division
”As an IT and Business Outsourcing organisation Steria works with Experimentus as its Testing and Innovation partner for several major customers. Their focused approach was best summed up by one of Steria’s own clients who described Experimentus as having “the right people, with the right skills, doing the right things, at the right time“. Creating this impression has helped the Experimentus team to align itself with Steria as our two organisations work together to provide thought leadership across a number of industry sectors.”
Graham Greene – Business Development Director
“Experimentus had been recommended to me by a colleague in another part of the organisation. My expectation was one of an efficient and professional organisation. This was subsequently borne out by the service provided, but in addition I was impressed by Experimentus’ knowledge rooted in experience, the enthusiasm of their consultants, their flexibility and keenness to focus on the customer needs. The substantive benefits we derived from engaging Experimentus was a clear analysis of what we need to do and an action plan for achieving the benefits.
All the Experimentus consultants I have dealt with are very approachable and have an infectious enthusiasm for their subject matter which they are keen to share with their customers.”
John Cantley, Senior Project Manager

RWE IT UK
”The consultant pitched the TMM presentation in exactly the right way and feedback from my attendees was overwhelmingly positive. He communicated in a tactful, empathetic and humorous (where appropriate) way – all in all a good job. It was important for me that my staff gained confidence that I am using the right people to help us in these areas and I’m pleased to be able to say that Experimentus gave exactly that impression!”
Simon Frankish, Testing Practice Manager
