Just to be named finalists in such a competitive category was very humbling, so to be named winners by a panel of our peers is an incredible achievement for us and I know everyone at nFocus will be proud of what we have accomplished."

Phil continued, "This is a momentous moment in nFocus' sixteen year history and we will push on from here and continue to deliver award winning software testing, at the very highest standard, to our many clients. I'd like to thank each and every member of our team, as without the hard work they put in every day this would not have been possible."

Cecilia Rehn, Chair of the judging panel and Editor of Test Magazine had this to say, "Congratulations to nFocus Testing for winning The Leading Vendor category. The judging panel was in agreement that this entry stood out from the rest by demonstrating thought leadership, innovative DevOps practices, as well as by promoting best practices for the future. Overall, the Awards programme has seen a 25% increase of entries in 2016, and the competition has been incredibly fierce."

The judges were appointed based on their extensive experience in the software testing and QA field. These seasoned professionals, all of whom currently hold senior management roles guarantee that each entry is judged fairly and accurately.

The Awards body explain, "This stringent process means that each winner of an award has done so based purely on merit. So regardless of company size, budget, customer base, market share, influence, vendor, academic, end user, consultant or otherwise; The European Software Testing Awards truly is an independent awards programme that recognises and rewards outstanding achievement."
