One thing everyone seems to agree on is that software testing is an essential step prior to any release . If you don’t have a proper testing process in place, your product may be in serious trouble. If testing is an after-thought that is left until the very end of the project, you may discover that major issues still exist that could cause the project to be scrapped or may require costly redesigns.
The tricky part is to have the necessary QA resources available exactly when you need them. Most companies have in-house QA resources in place, but not nearly enough to tackle QA spikes right before each release cycle. “Borrowing” resources from other in-house departments also comes with several drawbacks.
This is why On-Demand QA solutions have become so attractive to small and large companies alike over the last few years. Companies team up with a professional testing house during their peak times that require extensive QA. This brings great value to the table as the cost is limited to the actual times On-Demand resources are working on your project. No extra hiring, training, or maintaining of extra resources is necessary.
Here is how iBeta’s QA On-Demand Process works:
The iBeta QA On-Demand model ensures that testing can ramp up or down depending on the needs of development and testing cycles. We dedicate a test team to you that integrates with your internal resources to help you achieve major milestones and release dates.
- Fact Finding Phone Call: This is done to ensure that we understand your needs and how we can help you.
- Client and iBeta put an NDA in place: Your proprietary information and products are secure with our teams.
- Client will provide iBeta with the necessary documentation and access to the application or site that is to be tested.
- iBeta furnishes a Statement of Work (SOW) or Proposal and submits it to client for review: This outlines everything that we intend to do for you.
- Proposal/SOW is accepted and iBeta receives signed Proposal/SOW: We can now officially start working on the project.
- iBeta’s designated Project Manager will contact the client to discuss scheduling and to organize a project kick-off call.
- Kick-Off call: We will discuss in-depth the project needs and obtain any additional information that we need to get the project started.
- Project starts.
- Project Manager will be in constant contact with the client throughout the project and the Account Manager will be also be available to address any client concerns.
