Amsterdam, June 27th, 2018

GROW Labs intend to increase scalability and maintainability within the IT industry, and therefore to empower tech innovation. Thanks to due diligence investigations when onboarding development agencies, and partnerships with experts in software quality, the B2B platform secured smooth working flows for companies looking to outsource their IT projects without compromising on quality.

“I am thrilled to see great partners as SIG and Escrow Alliance joining forces with GROW Labs to push innovation forward, and to provide our clients future-proof solutions for their development challenges,” says David Dwinger, CEO and co-founder of GROW Labs. These collaborations will provide the Amsterdam native platform with the necessary tools to guarantee the highest quality standards to clients and partners regarding IT deliveries.

GROW Labs and Escrow Alliance

As a neutral third party, referred to as the “trusted third party,” Escrow Alliance supplies software protection through the Escrow technology. Under the collaboration with GROW Labs, Escrow Alliance will play an essential role and scan each component of the delivered code to ensure its integrity and completeness. “We are excited to team up with GROW Labs and to challenge the status quo by creating new norms when it comes to software integrity and completeness”, said Sander Remans, Managing Director of Escrow Alliance. This verification process run by Escrow Alliance ensures that the code is available for continued development and deployment in any environment.

Additionally, Escrow Alliance will be responsible for the smooth delivery of each milestone to GROW Labs clients and therefore ensures software continuity for GROW Labs and its partners.

GROW Labs and Software Improvement Group (SIG)

All software delivered through the GROW Labs platform will be checked against 10 code quality standards developed by Software Improvement Group (SIG). As the authority in software quality, SIG provides technology, training, and advisory services to IT professionals and leaders spanning industries worldwide.

Better Code Hub is a SIG product that checks code for compliance with these 10 guidelines. Better Code Hub will be used to evaluate the quality of all software built for clients of GROW Labs, and the results of these checks will be made available to both developers and their clients.

“By providing clear insight into the quality of delivered code, clients on the GROW Labs platform can be confident that the software they buy is well built, understandable, and adaptable to future needs,” says Joost Visser, CTO of SIG. “Together with GROW Labs, we want to increase not only the number but also the quality level of IT professionals available to the organisations that need them.”
