While many quality assurance costs may be readily visible to your organization, there are many costs associated with quality that typically go unnoticed, thereby increasing the overall cost of performing the quality assurance service.
One of the major points of comparison is our fees and how we would be compared to your internal QA departments from a financial perspective. We have developed a list that shows some of the visible and not so visible costs of supporting an in-house organization.
By knowing more about the inherent cost burden of running an internal QA organization, you can better see the benefits of utilizing an external organization. In the end, you should be able to see that our fees are quite competitive when held against the “Fully Loaded” costs of funding an internal quality assurance team.
