Testing professionals Shane Hewson and Jon McPhee founded Qual IT in 2004. They saw an opportunity to deliver open, honest, no surprises testing solutions in the New Zealand market.
And it worked. Qual IT has grown into a company with a client list of over 80 organisations across NZ and overseas, covering most industry sectors and with a team of over 200 permanent and contract test professionals.
Qual IT has delivered greater certainty in some of the country’s biggest IT projects, across industries including Local and Central government, State Owned Enterprise, Logistics/Freight forwarding/Shipping, Aviation, IT, Health, Agriculture, Insurance, Banking, Retail, Transport, Utilities, Education, Property, and Telecommunications.
The Qual IT philosophy
“Our clients tell us that they choose us because they get the sense that we’re always ready to respond to their needs and deliver, no matter what the complexity, timescale or other challenge,” says Shane Hewson, Qual IT Director.
“They want the confidence that their IT systems will work and deliver the expected business outcomes. Qual IT provides well qualified, technically competent and proven testers who can deliver that certainty, regardless of the pressures. We build strong, open relationships with our clients and we’re accountable for results.”
“Qual IT's philosophy is simple: When dealing with Qual IT, you can expect a "do it once, do it right" approach delivered by passionate, pragmatic IT testing professionals.”
Jon McPhee, Director says “We identified early on that our success is down to the skills and knowledge of our staff and we therefore have a strong focus on personal development, retention and knowledge management. We have developed a structured capability management framework which defines career paths, success profiles and development plans and we facilitate an environment where mentoring, collaboration and information sharing are the norm.
