10 Key Aspects to Consider when Outsourcing QA and Software Testing Services
As an experienced software development company, we understand the importance of QA and software testing services. In our software testing processes we seek answers to the following questions:
- Does the application work as intended?;
- Are there bugs that hinder the user’s experience? and
- When can the application go live?
That is why QA and testing services are crucial and go hand in hand with the development process. Project managers in large corporations confirm that QA testing should represent as much as 33% of a project’s hours.
QA services can provide many benefits to companies seeking to improve the quality of their application development and management processes and reduce business risk through rigorous testing.
Given the increase in global IT outsourcing many companies choose to outsource QA and testing to ensure high quality deliverables and gain competitive advantages. The competitive advantages of outsourcing include cost reductions and an improved use of the labor, capital and technology.
There are many things to consider and account for before signing a contract with an outsourcing partner.
Software testing is an essential phase of software development but not the core activity of most companies. Outsourcing of this function enables companies to concentrate on core activities and leading innovation, whilst the QA and testing providers work efficiently, ensuring quality results and a positive business outcome.
