Quinnox is a material outsourcer to Shawbrook, being a key enabler of our technology transformation journey. For Shawbrook, this recent tie-up with Qyrus is another step towards testing at the speed of digital to design and deliver brilliant customer experiences and accelerate business outcomes.

Quinnox uses Qyrus, its proprietary AI-powered test automation platform, to develop new systems and change existing processes and systems for Shawbrook, a new type of bank in the UK that combines and integrates modular technology with human expertise, judgment and ingenuity.

As part of their “shift-left” quality strategy, Qyrus supports Shawbrook’s ambitious delivery schedule of new product features to customers as well as its focus on automation, through automated regression testing across the breadth of the Shawbrook Platform.

Qyrus helped Shawbrook transform its Platform to seamlessly automate savings account opening & servicing, real estate & SME lending origination as well as customer due diligence onboarding processes.

Shawbrook was able to deliver releases in a much shorter time using the Web, API, and Business Process testing capabilities of Qyrus. The outcomes this drove were faster time to feedback, increased velocity of deployments, better quality of releases with significantly less effort.

Full details on Shawbrook’s strategy to develop its next generation banking platform and 2021 commercial performance can be found in our 2021 Annual Report.


Russ Thornton, CTO of Shawbrook explains

“Quinnox is a key partner of ours, not only supporting our technology delivery teams, but with tools like Qyrus. Test automation is a critical capability for any engineering team, and Qyrus supports the testing of our web, API and mobile components as a part of our CI/CD processes, but also in on-going regression testing across our partner ecosystem. The real power of Qyrus is that we have this extremely broad testing capability in one tool, run in the Cloud, and reusable across all our development teams”


Somnath Chakraborty, SVP, Head of Quinnox Europe goes on to say

“We are delighted to have Shawbrook as one of our strategic clients here in the UK and this partnership has grown strength to strength, as together we intend to drive positive change in the Banking industry and are proud that Qyrus is able to help accelerate it.”
