One of our favorites! Why? Because of the many additional challenges that are uncommon or uncritical in desktop or server software, which make them very special to us.
Software testing service providers love multiple platforms and device fragmentation, differences of UI and UX designs, resource-starved devices, varying app types, bandwidths, and jitter of multiple networks.
Ah, web testing. Be it healthcare, fin-tech, gambling, or stock exchange platforms, web-based application testing is what we do, starting from the product usability to understanding how each component integrates with the system.
Do you want to know our daily routine? We open the hood to look at the database, we check and manipulate the API or WebSockets, and perform security or stress testing. Sounds fun, right?
Getting tired of repeating the same Quality Assurance manual tests every day?
We can jump in at any stage of your automating process because we know how to do UI test automation that fits a particular project.
Don’t worry, we’ll avoid the same repetitive manual tasks on each browser out there. Plus, we can successfully perform complex software testing automation scenarios on your API using our preferred tools, JMeter or Postman!
Because we want users to have a good experience using applications on fixed and mobile platforms, performance efficiency is an essential part of our job.
Performance testing is critical in establishing adequate quality assurance levels for the end-user. It’s often closely integrated with other disciplines such as usability engineering and performance engineering.
We are firm believers in system tests because the behavior of the whole system/product should always be kept in check.
Here, the Quality Assurance scope can be addressed in the Master and/or Level Test Plan to have precise results for each release candidate.
Also known as the bread and butter of software testing. It helps us verify all of the documented functional requirements to release better products faster.
*Functions are what a system or subsystem should be doing. What we validate here is the use case (or the functional specification).
A defect is detected and fixed, we retest the software to confirm it has been successfully removed. We call that confirmation in the Quality Assurance world.
Regression testing is when we retest a program after it’s modified to see if any defects resurface due to the changes.
Not that we don’t trust our developer friends! We just like to double-check.
Warning, here comes the geeky part.
Non-functional testing includes (but is not limited to) performance testing, load testing, stress testing, usability testing, maintainability testing, reliability testing, and portability testing.
Basically, it tests “how” the system works.
Software systems are an integral part of life, from business applications (e.g., banking) to consumer products (e.g., cars).
You’ve probably had an experience with software that didn’t go as expected. Besides client dissatisfaction, software that doesn’t work correctly can lead to many other problems: from losing money, time, or business reputation, to injury or death, in extreme cases.
Testing systems and documentation rigorously can help reduce the risk of problems during operation. It also contributes to the software system’s quality if the defects are fixed before the system is released.
Software testing may also be required to meet contractual or legal requirements or industry-specific standards.
Testing allows you to measure the quality of software in terms of defects found (for both functional and non-functional software), requirements and characteristics (e.g., reliability, usability, efficiency, maintainability, and portability).
Testing will give you extra confidence in the quality of the software if it finds few or no defects.
Plus, a properly designed test reduces the overall level of risk in a system.
On the other hand, when testing does find defects, the quality of the software system increases when they’re fixed.
We can all learn from previous projects by understanding the root causes of defects – that’s how processes are improved, which should prevent them from reoccurring and enhance the quality of future systems. Who wouldn’t want that?
A human being can make an error (mistake), which produces a defect (fault, bug) in the program code. If that defect is executed, the system may fail to do what it should do (or do something it shouldn’t), causing a failure.
Defects may result in failures, but that’s not the case for all of them.
Defects occur because human beings are fallible. There is time pressure, complex code, the complexity of infrastructure, changing technologies, and many system interactions. So, of course mistakes will happen.
Failures can be caused by environmental conditions as well – radiation, magnetism, electronic fields, and pollution can cause faults in firmware or influence software execution by changing the hardware conditions.
We are happy to inform you that we got selected in the top 10 annual listing of companies that are the forefront of providing Software Testing, consulting services, and transforming businesses, by CIO Applications Europe.
We are an independent QA team and won’t provide development services for a reason. This allows us to provide unbiased Quality Status reports to Stakeholders without concealing some of the product problems, at the request of the Dev Manager. Our goal is to be the binder between dev, business analysts, and stakeholders. We focus on the processes to achieve the best quality by preventing defects.
Working with BetterQA is a partnership. Dedicated support, seamless feedback, and incredibly passionate testers will keep your developers and customers happy.
