Planning service Yes
How the planning service works Bang propose that there will be a short but intensive discovery phase to build an in-depth understanding of the current situation and any current issues. This will involve both exploration and questioning, in a number of areas:
• User needs and requirements
• Technical – how things are built
• Procedural – moving forwards how will we work together
• Governance – how will we maintain oversight of the solution to ensure satisfaction

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing
Quality assurance and performance testing service Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works Bang has always had a focus on quality and customer satisfaction.
Code changes generated by Bang will go through a full development process – unit tested on the developers own machine, tested on the ‘dev’ environment and independently tested on the ‘staging’ environment before going live. Code changes caused by patches to any element of the environment will be treated differently. Bang will wait until there is a ‘proven’ fix and an authorised release before applying any fix on to the staging environment. These will be tested. Once the tests have been passed these will be scheduled for release to production.
Having a multiple stage process with testing at each stage helps improve overall quality.
Bang will modules as appropriate and will take great care that any dependencies between plugins are considered before they are applied.
We have achieved ‘Cyber Essentials Scheme’ certification and are currently working towards ISO 27001 accreditation, to work with our ISO 9001 Quality Management System.
