Redgate Software demonstrates ethical selling approach with two big wins at the BESMA Awards

Cambridge UK, Tuesday 27 November 2018 – The recent British Excellence in Sales Management Awards saw Redgate Software doubly rewarded for its efforts in instilling an ethical sales culture. The leading Microsoft data platform tools vendor won gold in both the Sales Director and Key Account Manager of the Year categories.

Now in its 12th year, the BESMA awards represent the UK’s highest level of recognition for outstanding sales achievement, and highlight organizations which demonstrate best practice in sales. Long recognized as the sales industry’s top awards event, the quality of entries increases each year, and 2018 was no different. 800 entries were received from companies like IBM, Marriott Hotels, McAfee, PwC, and Rolls-Royce, and there were 80 finalists across 17 different categories.

The entries were evaluated by a panel of high caliber judges headed by Kerry Nutley, Vice President Digital Sales at BT, and including senior executives from companies as varied as BAE Systems, Experian, Lloyds Register, Microsoft and Siemens.

The awards dinner was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London, on 26 October 2018, where the Redgate sales team saw two of their peers being rewarded.

In the Key Account Manager category, Mike Hallam, a BESMA judge and Director of Indirect Sales at Virgin Media Business, said prior to the winner being announced: “What we as judges are looking for are the finalists to explain to us what they see as the key strategic pillars for them to develop the relationship, how they overcome challenges and objections that the customer may have with them, and equally how they obviously grow the account.”

Key to that was ethical selling – working for the customer, rather than simply focusing on a sale at any cost. In a crowded category with strong candidates from companies like PwC, SSE and Yell, the winner was James King, Redgate Account Executive.

The Sales Director category was equally challenging, and the judges were looking for an individual who had shown motivation and leadership within a culture of responsible and ethical sales, delivering solid results.

As Darren Bayley, a BESMA judge and Vice President of Marketing at Dentsply Sirona, said: “We were looking for someone truly outstanding, both in terms of leadership, strategy, and also delivering results. But really importantly as well, we were looking for someone who puts ethical selling right at the heart of their business.”

Despite competing against an impressive line-up of finalist from the companies like Cognism, Natterbox and Vodafone, the winner was Cassi Roper, Redgate Regional Sales Director.

Redgate was also a finalist in the Sales Employer of the Year category, and the Sales Team of the Year (under 50 people) category, and the awards are a validation of a two year journey for the sales team.

As Cassi Roper said after the ceremony: “I’m delighted to win an award, but I’m also really proud that Redgate was a finalist in four categories. That’s a result of a huge amount of effort from the whole company in supporting the sales effort, opening new sales offices in Australia and Germany as well as the US, and putting customers at the heart of how we work.”

UK Financial Services Retailer, Post Office, on a Mission to Modernise Product Portfolio with the OutSystems Low-Code Platform

New native mobile app adopted by more than 100,000 customers within three months of release

London – 27th November, 2018 – OutSystems, provider of the number one low-code platform for rapid application development, today announced that the UK-based postal and financial services retailer, Post Office, is using OutSystems to power innovation.

As part of the company’s strategic investment in new technology to help modernise its business, Post Office engaged OutSystems to help deliver an initial application use case: a new B2C native mobile app for Android and iOS to promote the company’s financial products for travel. The new app allows customers to buy and manage a Travel Money Card and to take out Travel Insurance at the same time. In just four months, the new team completely developed, tested, and released the app—an achievement almost unheard of for financial services products. These products are subject to numerous regulations and controls, which the team managed to swiftly navigate.

“As a commercial organisation, our challenge as a company is always to innovate more quickly and with more agility,” said Henk Van Hulle, Managing Director Group Digital and Innovation at the Post Office. “We needed a development platform that offered advanced security, code reusability, and allowed for greater data insight to help us get to market faster. We are always striving to build our products and services around our customers—not just today’s, but tomorrow’s, too—and so we want our employees to feel empowered to find and use the solutions that help them do that. OutSystems lets us develop innovative and necessary products and get to market faster, while enabling integration with complex back-end systems.”

The addition of OutSystems as the company’s new development front-end creates a foundation for the Post Office’s future digital roadmap, one that will create new revenue streams and channels that it can leverage at its more than 11,500 branches to serve the millions of Post Office customers across the UK. The new native mobile app has been adopted by more than 100,000 customers within three months of release.

Nick Pike, Regional Vice President of Sales at OutSystems, worked closely with Post Office throughout the initial project. “What this newly created Post Office team delivered in such a short time is a testament to what an agile and dedicated team can do with a robust, full-stack, low-code development platform. With the help of OutSystems, Post Office is revitalising its socially-conscious portfolio of products and services and building new revenue streams with low-code as the cornerstone for the delivery of their digital strategy,” he says.

OutSystems recently hosted its annual NextStep events for IT professionals in Boston and Amsterdam, unveiling OutSystems 11, the company’s newest version of its low-code development platform. In June, OutSystems announced a $360 million investment from KKR and Goldman Sachs to help the company change the face of low-code development and enable enterprises to digitally transform and become more business efficient.

About OutSystems
Thousands of customers worldwide trust OutSystems, the number one low-code platform for rapid application development. Engineers with an obsessive attention to detail crafted every aspect of the OutSystems platform to help organisations build enterprise-grade apps and transform their business faster.

QATestLab Introduces the Research On Mobile Test Automation

November, 2018 – QATestLab, an independent provider of QA and testing services, together with partners presented the research Future of Mobile Test Automation based on the expertise and opinions of the leading representatives of QA companies and manufacturers of test automation solutions.

The respondents are Antony Edwards, COO at EggPlant (Great Britain), Costin Secareanu, Senior QA Automation Consultant at IOVIO (The Netherlands), Ron Werner, Team Lead Mobile Testing at QualityMinds (Germany), Matt Robson​, Executive Director at TSG (Great Britain), Marcel Diepenbroek, Director at InnSpire (The Netherlands), and Duncan Brigginshaw, Co-Founder and Technical Director at Odin Technology Ltd (Great Britain).

A dynamic marketplace requires the delivery of high-quality solutions and code with speed and agility. Respectively, shortening of the release cycle reduces testing lifecycle. To deal with the pressure, organizations are adopting a test automation strategy for mobile testing. However, the current state of mobile test automation is considered to be ambiguous.

The research provides an overview of mobile test automation as emerging segment of test automation market. It explores the specifics of current solutions for mobile automation in accordance with the trends of mobile software development. It also reviews the challenges of mobile test automation and touches on the perspectives of its development.

 “All the challenges of mobile automation form a significant driver for organizations to introduce test automation, to provide continuing escalation of test cost. Test Automation solutions have to focus on ‘build once, execute many’ principle, with particular consideration on how to correctly handle the expected results” says Matt Robson, Executive Director at TSG.
