Agile NDT was founded by Kevin Bett, a multi disciplined
NDT inspector with over 16 years experience in a variety of different sectors.
Starting his NDT career in 2001, Kevin has worked for many different service
providers in a variety of different sectors including; power generation, offshore
oil & gas, marine, construction and manufacturing.
Becoming frustrated at the lack of good quality NDT reporting systems in the modern web
age, he decided to build his own and started out sketching and testing different ideas
in mid 2011. Working for a well known service provider in Norway, Kevin was able to test
and develop his ideas and present to various companies. November 2011 saw his first contract
to develop a NDT reporting and management system and Agile NDT was born.
Development started in November 2011 and was first deployed to customers
early in 2012. Since then we have grown to a small team of software professionals.
We have customers in over 5 different countries.
Agile NDT was created to provide cloud based software to the NDT industry
with its core mission to improve and elevate reporting processes to
streamline, promote collaboration, reduce errors and ultimately
We build and maintain custom web based reporting software for NDT service providers.
We build web based reporting systems. We understand that every NDT company
has different requirements in their reporting system so we don't offer
a single product, we have a base that we customise for each of
Typically we will build a reporting system that is completely off-site,
stored in a secure data centre either in Europe or USA. The application
is hosted on a Private Virtual Server (VPS) which exists to host your
reporting system only. This means that your company data is completely
secure, you have full access but you don't have to maintain any
expensive hardware. You only need a modern web browser and a reliable
internet connection to access your reporting system. Any modern
computer or mobile device can be used to generate and manage NDT
We take ownership of and are passionate about delivering quality in our
NDT reporting products. Our quality management system involves all stakeholders; employees,
customers, contractors and suppliers. We use the latest software frameworks built with the best
industry standard practises and procedures to create solid, well tested, great looking and
functional web applications.
We adopt the agile software development methodology which requires a strong
customer feedback loop. We work in short weekly sprints that always end with
deliverable features which are presented to our customers and iterated upon.
We use tools such as automated unit, functional and integration testing to help us deliver
bug free source code. Automated testing helps us gain confidence in the code we are
producing, especially when we add new features to the existing code base. Another tool we
use to improve and maintain quality is 3rd party code reviews. We hire expert
contractors to critically review our code and suggest improvements where needed.
Security is an integral part of all our products, we are privileged to have the
task of creating web products that enhance the productivity and
ultimately having positive financial impacts for our customers therefore
we take security of our software products as paramount.
As a foundation we use industry standard email & password authentication
to prevent un-authorised access. We can add 2 factor authentication to that
using SMS or third party authenticator services. We use data encryption techniques
such as https which improves confidentiality, integrity and identity. Our servers are built
and maintained with the industry standard best practice features such as
firewalls, ssh and DDoS protection.
Cloud based data storage is revolutionising our businesses but comes
with its own challenges that must be addressed. We at Agile NDT have been
at the forefront of bringing cloud based solutions to the NDT industry.
