Fredericton, NB (February 3, 2022) – Digital health software company VeroSource Solutions Inc. is pleased to announce its partnership with the PLATO group of companies, Canada’s only Indigenous-led and staffed software testing organization that provides quality assurance solutions to clients throughout North America. The two companies, both headquartered in Fredericton, NB, are set to collaborate on application development projects in Manitoba initially, with aims to offer development and QA testing services to additional jurisdictions later in 2022.
VeroSource began working in Manitoba at the beginning of the pandemic following the successful launch of the MyHealthNB portal in New Brunswick. Leveraging its cloud-based foundational VSF platform, VeroSource developed a COVID-19 Online Results Display for Shared Health Manitoba (SH-CORD) that provides Manitobans with access to their COVID-19 test results and immunization records.
PLATO had also previously been engaged with the Government of Manitoba providing performance testing services. The VeroSource and PLATO partnership will build on the experience both companies have in the province, enabling new digital health solutions to be launched quickly and securely.
“PLATO has built a strong reputation for software testing and delivery excellence,” said Mark McAllister, CEO of VeroSource. “We are keen to expand our testing capacity with a partner that shares our commitment to excellence as we respond to the demand for digital health solutions across the country.”
“While PLATO has a presence from coast to coast, our roots will always be here in Atlantic Canada, which is why we’re happy to be announcing this partnership with VeroSource, a great company doing important work in the digital health space,” says PLATO CEO and Founder Keith McIntosh. “Together, PLATO and VeroSource will provide customers like the Government of Manitoba and others with quality software that enables better user experiences, enhances decision making, and improves outcomes.”
