Quality Assurance & Testing Services

As more and more businesses are aspiring to have a strong web presence web testing has potentially become the biggest area in the sector of Quality Assurance (QA) and Testing. The general aim of web testing is to find bugs, issues or defects, that might have a negative effect on the website or application. Web testing can also be used to identify potential areas in the website or application that can be improved for enhanced user experience. Insufficient testing is a common problem in the web world. Lack of testing not only causes embarrasment but also increases the re-work and maintenance cost. Websites simply must work as otherwise that damage the brand image, stakeholder relationship and customer satisfaction for any business, and this is turn can lead to a loss of revenue. This is where the most challenging part of website development comes in.

The challenges that a website usually faces are:
  • The range of operating systems, browsers and devices that can be used to browse the website
  • Time-to-market is a crucial factor behind website success, hence tight deadlines are to be met, which means websie testing needs to be thorough and well-planned to avoid extensive rework
  • Usually programmers who build a website cannot conduct a full-proof testing as they tend to see what they believe is there, not what is actually there
