Testing

Software testing is one of the most critical elements of any major IT capital deployment – yet, in retail, it is often not given the time and respect it deserves. Testing is frequently viewed as an unnecessary time delay and expense, yet effective testing can add enormous value to the solutions deployed. PMC offers an independent testing service that is flexible to meet your business needs.
