GCU credited for ‘professional and thorough testing services’

A happy GCU client working with our School of Engineering and Computing on the iCEaid mobile app project.

Lifesapps CEO, Andrew Mulford said: “The support given by GCU was outstanding, both in the professionalism of their engagement with us and the thoroughness of their testing regime. They understood the app almost immediately and, due to its intended use, wanted to put it through some severe tests, which we welcomed. The usability tests involved individuals with no medical training working through difficult scenarios. iCEaid scored very highly for intuition and ease of use, even though more than 80% of the testers selected by GCU had not used an iPhone before, let alone seen the app. We were very impressed with the scientific thoroughness of GCU’s approach, and of course, delighted with the outcome.”

The project was developed with the help of a Star Grant.
