EPL needs to smoothly, accurately and consistently execute payments for one of the largest payrolls in Australasia every two weeks and is building a fully online payroll service for schools called EdPay – the future of schools’ payroll in New Zealand. EPL has looked to Assurity for support in testing, shifting to Agile and DevOps ways of working prior to and throughout the creation of EdPay.

“It’s not only skills that Assurity provides, but also an outstanding attitude. That’s why, as we move forward, Assurity is seen as a source of sound advice and input for the maturation of our Agile practices. And in periods of peak demand for testing, we know where to look.”
