Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
As we provide cloud solutions to our clients, quality assurance is critical in achieving our goal of delivering “right first time”. Testing against all client's requirements and driving the delivery of high quality code helps us to reduce User Acceptance Testing (UAT) effort and rework. Through the scoping and planning phases, we ascertain the level and depth of quality assurance necessary and tailor our QA efforts accordingly. During the project build phase, we focus solely on functional system testing of the solutions developed.

We utilise a Risk Based Testing, prioritising tests on functionality with highest potential impacts and propensity to failure. We continuously review test plans ensuring we identify and rectify all critical defects. On system test completion, we provide a QA Test Report summarising the test activities and any resulting recommendations. Where required, we also support client UAT needs by providing consultants able to perform UAT management and test analysis in order to guide client teams in the most effective ways to UAT the solution.
