PMC Provide Testing Service for Marston's


Business Challenge

Marston’s are implementing a new EPOS system across their estate which requires thorough User Acceptance Testing to ensure its stability prior to roll out. The Marston’s team did not have sufficient staff availability to produce and execute Test Scripts or to manage the testing process.

The Solution

PMC provided testing resource to work with Marston’s and their developer to plan the Test Approach and schedule of testing.  We supplied Test Analysts to create Test Scripts ensuring that all business processes were covered and tests could be traced back to those processes.  Those same Analysts then executed the tests on both the EPOS and Mobile POS solutions.  This testing was supported by a PMC Test Manager who worked closely with Marston’s to ensure that all defects were followed through to resolution, provided regular reporting and managed all resourcing requirements.


  • Marston’s staff were able to continue with their normal jobs.
  • PMC provided configured Test Management tools to ensure reusability of scripts and a standardised defect management workflow.
  • The use of qualified and experienced testing resource means that Marston’s can have confidence in the quality of their solution
  • The standardised PMC Testing process is tried and tested meaning Marston’s make efficiency savings.

How was this successful?

PMC found a number of critical issues in the EPOS solution and have been able to work with Marston’s and their developer to ensure that these defects were fixed and that the solution was retested afterwards.  Our PMC Test Manager flexed the Testing Team size regularly to meet the peaks and troughs throughout the project - our PMC resource is more flexible than hiring testing contractors.
