Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
Yes
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
GOSS Creative ensure quality via thorough testing across each core stage of every project. Our User Centred Design process is fluid and iterative and tested regularly until sign-off. Our five core stages are Discovery, Alpha, Beta, Live and Review. We start with workshops to look at demographics and personas leading to user journey creation and early IA testing using Treejack software enabling clear data on architecture wins and fails from the outset. Consistent User Experience is further developed via wire-framing and prototyping. We test internally as well as with real users from the chosen demographics set out in the discovery stage. All decisions are based on users’ needs and gives us vital insight into the thoughts and feelings of users against our thoughts and feelings as designers. Rigorous user and performance testing throughout every stage of a project ensures a tailored fit for purpose solution. Our processes are re-evaluated multiple times by our experienced, multi-disciplined team to ensure the end result is fully accessible and simple to use, no matter what device the user favours and that the users succeed first time unaided.
