EXECOM AND ASHTON COURT TO FORM EXECOM UK AND MARKET APT SOFTWARE QUALITY CONTROL IN THE UK

By CBR Staff Writer

Australian software house Execom Pty Ltd, based in Perth, Western Australia has set up in the UK to market its software quality control system, APT. The privately-held company, which made $18.9m revenue last year, is joining forces with UK-based quality management consultancy Ashton Court Ltd, to form Execom (UK) Ltd which will be 70% owned by Execom Australia, 30% by Ashton. Execom sells a software design methodology, either in hard copy or software format, designed to help consultants or in-house developers gain BS5750 Part 1 accreditation. Originally developed by Australian firm Access Computer Consultants Pty, which was acquired by Execom, the APT methodology contains guides for stages of development including hardware selection, disaster recovery planning, documentation and maintenance. Execom, which already has a South-East Asian operation, is putting out feelers in the US and will sign European resellers in the spring. FastAPT, the software implementation of the methodology, runs under Microsoft Corp Windows and costs UKP500.
