Agile Practice Set up


Elevate IT is the new name of WebTest. The original brand started offering automation in QA in 2007. As the tool based automation moved to open source and the software delivery from waterfall to Agile, WebTest started offering various other IT services to our esteemed clients. Our service model is honest, have low overhead and works with you to find the best solution for you, rather than the highest margins for us. We won't recommend dysfunctional solutions like outsourcing all your testing to us and we won't try to sell you tools or training. You won't see splashy adverts or stands because we get work and staff mostly by word of mouth. We won't try to palm off people that we haven't even met to you as though they were part of our "consultancy".

We think you'll like working with us, as our existing clients do!

IT Solutions Manager


Air New Zealand

I would recommend their experience and skills to any manager driven to achieve quality testing outputs in an efficient and cost-effective manner Testing web-based applications in a Service Orientated Architecture (SOA) environment is something that due to the interactions at the service layer becomes very complex, quickly. As a result, you need confidence that your testing - Regression testing particularly - is capturing the risk areas for you. Through their use of a low-risk incremental approach to automation and high-quality people on the ground, WebTest has helped my area achieve consistency, and above all efficiency, in our web application testing.
