QA Services for Product Development Companies

Inadequate QA testing can have a huge negative impact on product quality, user experience, and the overall success of the product. Smart software development companies have identified numerous benefits of building quality into the product in parallel with the development instead of testing quality at the very end of product development. Nothing kills a brand as badly as the lack of quality.
There are many benefits to working with a specialized QA team and many great products depend on such teams. This document outlines the advantages they offer.

Security Risks and Testing

As technology becomes an increasingly integral part of personal lives and business, web applications are being used for more and more social interactions and business transactions. However, while there are users adopting and embracing these changes, there are other criminal minds at work, looking for ways to hack web applications for their own gains.
For an enterprise that falls victim to cyber-attacks, the price is huge and potentially crippling. There is financial loss, loss of credibility and customer trust, and brand damage, and in order to prevent these, security testing is essential.

Performance Testing

As the adoption of e-Commerce grows rapidly, there are new online shopping platforms and portals being launched regularly, and a tremendous competition for customers.
Not every e-Commerce platform thrives or even survives. To survive and emerge as a market leader, the product or platform needs to match customer expectation in performance.
In general, for all web applications and software products, products that perform consistently and match customer expectations gain market share, while the ones that fail to do so die a quiet death. ‘Survival of the fittest’ sure works in this era of global competition.
In this scenario, Performance Testing is key to ensuring that your product is ‘fit’ and performs optimally at all the situations.

How QA augmentation can help

QA testing has become an indispensable part of the software development
and plays a key role in defining the success of the end product. Though most of the product development companies are familiar with QA testing and are aware of the problems that might arise due to lack of it, there seems to be a lot of confusion around choosing the correct mode of doing QA testing – scaling up the in-house team versus opting for augmentation services.
For past many years, Smartsourcing Global has partnered with some of the best product development companies helping them overcome the challenges related to QA testing that they were facing.

Regression Testing: Manual or Automated

Regression Testing is conducted to check whether new modifications in the code have introduced any errors in the overall functioning of the application. It verifies that software which was previously developed and tested still performs the same way after it was changed or interfaced with other software.
