A MILTON Keynes software developer was one of 24 UK businesses who won the chance to exhibit at the world’s largest technology trade fair CeBIT.

Coveritas Limited, based in Bletchley Park, were selected in a national competition, by UK Trade and Investment and partners, to join leading Small and Medium Enterprises and research organisations in Hannover in Germany from March 10-14.

CeBIT 2014 was opened by the UK Prime Minister David Cameron and the German Chancellor Angela Merkel. And the event included other businesses ambassadors like Lord Livingston.

Coverita Ltd’s CEO Sean Redmond co-founded the business with Giles Hall, chief technology officer in 2010.

He said: “We were delighted to be there, it was an ideal platform for us to show our technology.

“It was unique for a company like ours to go and meet other industry sectors.”

Coveritas Ltd are a software test tool suit developer. Like modern day codebreakers they develop software that identifies defects and bugs in the developing process. They are a small business with a small team who develop new ways to detect defects.

Mr Redmond added: “Bletchley Park is a great reference for us, we have created something that has never been done before. Our unique tool is used by market leaders.

“We got a lot out of it, CeBIT helped us network with new possible clients in the gaming development, security and banking.”

At the opening of CeBIT in Hannover Prime Minister David Cameron said: “Four years ago, we put in place a long-term economic plan to turn our country around – and innovation is right at the heart of that plan.

“It is our ambition to make the UK the most digital nation in the G8 and it is my mission to show the world that we’re getting there.”
