5 reasons, why you should transfer testing to QA contractors

According to Quettra’s data, almost 33% of users stop using most of the apps within three days. Within 30 days, the number increases up to 90%. That sounds very disheartening. Crashes, slow data loading, and poor user experience design —  the most obvious reasons why it should be performed. Comprehensive software testing at all stages of development can prevent these troubles. However, many companies ignore this. It’s expensive and time-consuming, but it plays a crucial role in a product’s shaping on the market. QA contractors or testing outsourcing companies can dispel stereotypes about the testing process. How? Let’s read below.

Resources Availability

QA outsourcing allows companies to test just some features or a small piece of the project, without the need to employ a full-time QA tester or an entire team on a permanent basis. In this case, to hire a QA contractor is more reasonable regarding budget, time, and reliability. Especially, if the code was initially developed by the company’s employees, who may not always be critical, or are inattentive when it comes to testing of their own code.

A QA outsourcing company can efficiently cover all the human resources as well as all necessary testing equipment. It ensures that the applications will display and function correctly on all required devices and gadgets, and prove to be bug-free.

Testing & Expertise Quality

A QA contractor will provide clients with high-quality testers with an individual approach to each project. This significantly increases the application’s potential, help it meet users’ expectations, and strengthen its competitiveness on the market. QA specialists who possess deep expertise will help not only to make the first-class code but also to contribute to its growth. In addition, Gartner predicts that by 2020, most of testing outsourcing companies will apply advanced analytics in project development, that will significantly speed-up and improve the testing process.

The team’s professionalism also plays a critical role when it comes to big data. World Quality Report shows that ensuring data protection is still the most serious obstacle, cited by 46% of respondents. Between 20 and 30 percent of companies’ effort is lost on internal issues with environments and data.

TestFort has more than 200 certified testers, who have a wide expertise working with projects related to big data. Along with the analytic team and experienced project managers we cover all companies’ individual needs, and help them optimize business processes with Agile and DevOps best practices.

Hourly cost

The hourly cost is one of the most important benefits of QA outsourcing. There are a lot of options to choose from. The hourly rate varies from 5 up to 100 dollars, depending on your needs, the qualifications of QA specialists, and the residential country of the QA contractors.

One of the most balanced regions in terms of price and quality ratio is Eastern Europe, and Ukraine, in particular. Here, the average cost of Quality Assurance service is 10-15 dollars per hour, while the quality of provided work is at a senior level. There are more than 14,000 testers in Ukraine, and their number continues to increase. Almost half of Ukrainian QA engineers are middle or senior level specialists. Seniors and team leads represent about 22% of all the QA engineers in Ukraine. About 45% of Ukrainian software developers speak English fluently, and almost 40% have an intermediate level of English.

Focus On The Core Business

Testing within the company hides numerous risks that can postpone the release time, bring down potentially successful functionality, and significantly exceed the budget. These problems call off the company, or its owner from the main goal —  to develop a business strategy through a high-quality, user-friendly, and useful software. Such risks can be both the human factor, and the lack of necessary technologies for testing. Nevertheless, the most frequent among them are:

QA contractors cover all these risks successfully. Along with a detailed working plan, transparent communication, and excellent management, they take most of the nervous, monotonous work with documents, leaving you with more time and energy to concentrate on your company’s business goals achievement.

Long-term solution, partnership

The last and very important aspect of working with a QA contractor is the building of trustworthy, promising partnerships. The relationship of this kind assures you of the high quality of your product, as well as a quick response to its functional change. QA contractor always can back up and ready to improve your project, contributing to your business successful growth.
