Test Hats are a team of independent Software Testing and Quality Assurance professionals, who can act either as your sole outsource solution or as a multi-source partner.

We are specialists in testing consumer facing and interactive software. This covers assets such as websites and web applications including micro-sites, social media integration and email campaigns, mobile and portable media, gaming and games across all platforms, CMS, creative and technical design and CAD applications.

While we have deep technical knowledge and experience in the above, we also have considerable experience in testing 'back-end' systems such as SAP, Oracle, Message Brokers, etc. having worked on key engagements for large banking and finance clients.


In terms of platform capability we have a Test Lab set up that consists of Windows, Mac and Linux separate physical systems, virtualised Windows and Linux/Unix server and additional set-ups on Amazon EC2. For video game publishing clients we have a number of games platforms including Xbox 360, Kinect, Play Station 3, PSP, Wii, DSi & DS Lite, Nintendo 3DS.
