Cases When You Need a Software QA Consultant

Non-optimized QA process

that only fulfills baseline KPIs.

Non-effective QA process

where severe defects leak into software production while QA and testing suffer from over-budgeting and delays.

Lack of in-house QA expertise

when it comes to testing an unfamiliar software architecture (e.g., event-driven, service-oriented, space-based), a particular technology (e.g., big data, IoT, AI), or implementing DevOps and test automation.

Need to pass certification audits

such as software security compliance certification (e.g., HIPAA, PCI DSS, GDPR), process certification (e.g., ISO 9001, ISO 27001, ISO 13485), or QA maturity certification (e.g., TMMi Foundation, TPI NEXTÂź Foundation).

our Customers Say

We started working with ScienceSoft on testing our core application called Careware. The application is quite complex and has many ERP and mobile elements in it. We have worked with the team in very close cooperation ever since and value the professional as well as flexible attitude towards testing.

After looking through numerous candidates, we set our choice upon ScienceSoft and, over the course of our close cooperation, we haven’t regretted the decision. In terms of 
 automated testing services, they fulfilled our expectations and became very valuable for the projects. We would definitely recommend working with ScienceSoft as a long-term partner.

ScienceSoft’s QA team efficiently developed the testing documentation on the basis of exploratory testing results and helped us with the software requirements specification. We would like to acknowledge that the team was devoted not only to delivering the QA services but also making the collaboration smooth and convenient to us.

QA KPIs We Track

  • Percentage of software requirements covered by test cases.
  • Average and total number of created/updated test cases.
  • Total number of executed test cases per certain period (e.g., iteration, build).
  • Average and total number of found defects.
  • Testing time and costs variance (the ratio between actual and estimated testing time and budget).
  • Defects leakage (percentage of issues found by software users or during user acceptance testing).
  • Severity of defects leaked into production.

QA KPIs will greatly depend on your QA maturity level, software and project specifics, QA process challenges you face. ScienceSoft provides a tailored set of KPIs, which you can use further during QA process self-assessments.
