Based at their Centre of Excellence in Newry, Resonate Testing Ltd has been at the forefront of innovation for over three years, following the introduction of live video streaming capabilities. This became even more necessary due to the shutdown of global travel as a result of the pandemic, and the technology is now being utilised and fully embraced by clients throughout the island of Ireland, Great Britain, Europe and the United States of America.
Innovate NI is a Department for the Economy programme, helping local businesses to take the steps to innovate successfully. It is delivered by Invest Northern Ireland, local councils and further education colleges.
The Innovation Accreditation programme recognises businesses in Northern Ireland that are broadening and strengthening their innovation capacity, capability and activity. Resonate Testing Ltd has been recognised as a Platinum level Innovator, due to the value created and sustained as a result of their innovation strategy.
Managing Director of Resonate Testing Ltd, Tom Mallon spoke about the accreditation saying, “We’re delighted to receive the Platinum level recognition for demonstrating innovation with the introduction of our live stream testing processes. We invested heavily in state-of-the-art equipment prior to the pandemic, which included high-spec cameras, video lighting, Bluetooth technology and audio-visual communications.
“This equipment allows our team to conduct high-quality testing, with backup testing processes in place in the unlikely event of a blackout. Since the restrictions were placed on travel, we are finding that many organisations are looking for companies that specialise in virtual testing and with our experience, we’re the perfect fit.
“We have had organisations in America contact us to do their testing, as the testing processes delivered by local US companies were not meeting the required standards. The fact that we have been declared a Centre of Excellence in Ireland for our testing, reinforces our commitment to high quality testing, which is reassuring for our clients.”
Dr Vicky Kell, Invest NI’s Director of Innovation, Research and Development said: “Now more than ever, it’s important for businesses across Northern Ireland to seek opportunities via innovation, to help drive business growth and resilience. Resonate Testing Ltd is a great example of this, ensuring innovation is at the core of the business, resulting in the development of product providing competitive advantage.
“Invest NI has supported the company since it was established in 2015. Our support, combined with the company’s culture of innovation has helped Resonate Testing Ltd to break into new markets, create jobs, gain international customers and secure its success. I would like to congratulate Resonate Testing Ltd’s team on its Platinum level Innovator achievement, the highest level of Innovation recognition under the Accreditation programme. I wish Resonate Testing Ltd every success in its future growth and will be keen to hear of future developments.”
