Quality assurance and performance testing service Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works We'll assess performance requirements for the project and use a variety of tools to provide the right level of quality assurance. This starts with careful descriptions of the systems to be developed to provide clear test criteria and that allows easy manual testing that the built solution meets the agreed scope. Automated testing can also be included in our projects to allow paths through the system to be checked automatically every time a change is made or new feature added and give confidence that new development hasn't caused a defect in existing functionality. We use a variety of performance tools to identify bottlenecks including LoadImpact and New Relic.
