Application Testing Types We Provide
ScienceSoft's testing experts develop a tailored testing strategy and plan to address the specifics of your business and project, the application's tech stack and architecture.
Our test engineers are experienced with the following applications:
By their purpose
By their nature
Either it’s a document management app or a multi-functional CRM, our test engineers can ensure your web application lives up to its requirements. We pay special attention to the app's:
- Smooth functioning and integrations with other apps.
- Cross-browser compatibility and localization.
- Performance under planned and stress load, unstable internet connection.
- General data security requirements (for example, implied by GDPR) and specific compliance standards (HIPAA, GAMP, PCI DSS, etc).
Since 2005 in mobile testing, ScienceSoft’s team can efficiently manage mobile testing specifics implied by:
- Target OSs, their versions, and device fragmentation.
- Mobile interruptions (e.g., a dead battery, calls, texts, and push notifications).
- Integrations with built-in mobile features (e.g., a camera and a GPS chip).
- Security standards (e.g., OWASP Mobile Application Security Verification Standard (MASVS) version 1.1.3).
- Usability requirements (e.g., based on mobile application design guidelines and UI kits as Google’s Material Design for Android and Human Interface Guidelines for iOS).
By technologies involved
We can ensure the application’s quality with the focus on the riskiest aspects bound to the following technologies:
Application Aspects We Validate
ScienceSoft’s testing team validates the functioning of an application for you to be sure that it:
- Facilitates the daily tasks of employees using it.
- Complies with your specific business rules and their complex interdependencies.
- Fully meets your functional requirements.
- The existing functions aren't disrupted during the application evolution.

Our Approach to Application Testing
ScienceSoft keeps to the application testing process focused on the following principles.
Testing with a focus on business goals
We see an application not as a single-standing piece of software but a part of a complex business environment. Thus, our QA and testing professionals perform testing with primary attention to your business goals.
For this, they:
- Ensure our test strategy and plan, user stories, test scenarios, and test data are maximum true-to-life and driven by your actual business needs.
- Prioritize ongoing testing activities with regard to your current requirements that may be subject to change.
We prioritize testing activities according to the possible damage that an application defect can cause when it’s found by end users. Thus, the software issues bound to the highest risks are validated upfront.
This approach is particularly viable to fit multiple testing activities into tight iteration deadlines imposed by Agile, DevOps, CI/CD projects.
To keep track of the ongoing testing activities and adequately assess their effectiveness, you need relevant test documentation. Our test engineers stick to corresponding ISO/IEC 29119 standards and provide:
- Test strategy and plan.
- Test design and test procedure specifications.
- Test execution and test summary reports.
- Defect descriptions.
- Test suites.
Test team’s collaboration with development and support teams
Development and testing alignment is of utmost importance to ScienceSoft as it helps project teams meet iteration deadlines and steadily deliver smoothly functioning software.
ScienceSoft’s test leads and QA managers cater to inter-team communication by:
- Sharing daily and weekly tasks of each project team member.
- Initiating and holding regular meeting and calls.
- Continuously adjusting testing activities to current issues in the application's development, support, and maintenance process.
Balanced automated and manual testing
ScienceSoft adheres to the proprietary Integrated Manual and Automated Testing (IMAAT) approach to optimize testing time.
Our test automation leads analyze automated testing feasibility and calculate its ROI for each testing project. If it’s lucrative enough, we develop reusable test scripts for automated UI and API testing and introduce test automation within 3 weeks.
