The Federal Governement of Canada Chooses AXON's ASKIDA Software to Ensure Quality of Their Buyandsell.gc.ca Registry of the Public Works

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Jan. 12, 2016) - AXON, the center of expertise and quality in advanced and integrated software development, is proud to announce that its leading test orchestration software, ASKIDA™, has been selected by the Federal Government of Canada to help improve the testing processes of the Buyandsell.gc.ca procurement service applications suite used by the Public Works and Government Services Canada.

AXON's software ASKIDA™ was selected as part of the Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP), the Federal Government's program that subsidizes innovative solutions every year.

"This initiative allows us to showcase our unique expertise, which is to recommend a better approach to their quality assurance practices in the deployment of their application," said Steeve Duchesne, President and co-founder of AXON. "Over the years, we have demonstrated our ability to successfully carry out extensive quality assurance projects in large corporations and we are confident that we'll do the same for Buyandsell.gc.ca."

AXON, in close collaboration with the team at Public Works, will focus on assessing the current quality assurance processes and technologies being used. The collection of performance metrics and current data is underway. AXON is carefully analyzing the data in order to come up with recommendations that will ease the Public Works processes and improve Buyandsell.gc.ca performance. ASKIDA™ will be used to help automate the current and future test plans of the application. Further training and support of the resources on AXON's ASKIDA™ software will also be provided.

"With AXON's help, we expect Buyandsell.gc.ca to become easier to manage, measure performance, and scale since applications testing will be more complete," said Kenneth McMillan, Project Manager at Public Works and Government Services Canada. "We are looking forward to new and improved quality assurance processes that will increase the overall performance of our applications."

The implementation of ASKIDA™ with Buyandsell.gc.ca is spread over twelve months and the mandate will be finalized in August 2016.
