Sogeti UK, a leading provider of professional technology services specializing in application and infrastructure management, software testing, and high-tech engineering, today announces the availability of a new technology service; Rapid Engineering With Agile Rightshore® Delivery (REWARD) is Sogeti UK's innovative approach to rapid application development that is designed to deliver new applications and services quickly, while saving on costs, without impacting the quality of projects.

Designed by experts at Sogeti UK, REWARD is based on a unique fixed-price delivery model that combines agile development with a balanced onshore and offshore team to ensure close client contact and cost effective development.

The development of this service comes as a response to deliver greater flexibility to UK clients, outside of the usual formal change control processes which add cost, complexity and time to projects. REWARD is highly responsive to customer and user needs as it offers customers the ability to implement and enable agile development internally, better manage development costs and accelerate projects.

Drawing on experience across many platforms, applications and devices, as well as partnerships with industry-leading technology vendors, this service offers a new approach to deliver high-quality complex projects, on time and on budget.

With over 1000 skilled software engineers, all with extensive experience of Java, .NET and other programming languages as well as vast expertise in leading technologies, Sogeti's new REWARD service seamlessly integrates with existing agile testing services, providing clients with a complete agile approach across their delivery processes.

Jamie Browning, Software Development Manager at Catlin comments: "Major strategic projects take the focus of our current resources, but we find that demand for smaller bespoke development is increasing. The Sogeti REWARD service allows us to increase the level of delivery of additional projects by using their rapid agile application development service. As an end-to-end solution it takes you through analysis of requirements, development of the product, to testing and post-release support. Being able to work with an extended team of high performing individuals, means that I can preserve the standards and processes that are needed for us to support delivered applications in the future. It means I do not have to compromise on quality in order to deliver the best service possible to my customers. It also means I can offer an increased level of capability to my customers by taking advantage of the scale that Sogeti provides."

Mervyn Jackson, Director of Application Development and New Technologies of Sogeti UK, concluded: "We're delighted that Sogeti's range of services is growing from strength to strength. Being able to deliver high quality agile development has added a new service line which complements our already established testing services, and offers our clients a unique solution. We are really excited about REWARD's potential and it's fantastic to see key clients, like Catlin, already reaping the benefits."
