Godel has added another award to its trophy cabinet this week by winning a European Software Testing Award in the retail category for the work it has done with automotive company Clifford Thames, an OEC company.

Clifford Thames challenged the Godel team to work with their team to create a system for one of the largest organisations in the automotive aftermarket that would deliver an innovative view on car maintenance related information to the end user via the VIN number of each car.

The system had to accumulate the catalogued information received from the list of sources in different formats on a regular basis, process it, and simplify it to be accepted by the third-party system responsible for UI – created and run by the third party. The new system would allow the user to receive all the data about his car parts and replacement schemes.

Judges considered award entrants based on a number of factors:

·      Evidence of working closely with stakeholders to deliver the project on time and within budget
·      Demonstration of a successful software testing project utilising a best practice method/technique
·      Verification of project goals, importance, achievements and successful results
·      Evidence and evaluation of overcoming project challenges/obstacles
·      Detailed discussion around project methodology and justification of resource choices
·      Evidence of commitment to industry best practices and standards

“Godel takes a consultative approach to working with clients and provides the capabilities and skills to help retailers digitise legacy systems and move their business to the cloud,” explains Neil Turvin, CEO, Godel.

“It’s great to see the recognition for a project that was ground-breaking in terms of QA and testing in many ways.”
