July 28, 2008. Max Garkavtsev, Founder of BugHuntress QA Lab, a leading Ukrainian software testing company, has arrived in the USA for a two-month business trip with his main goal to present new testing services for technology and software companies.

The special focus is made on integrated QA/QC services for companies which outsource software development. "The economic slowdown compels to optimize outlay. Outsourcing deals aren't an exception: you must be sure that every your outsourced dollar works at 100% and you get the quality you paid for," says Max Garkavtsev.

The situation becomes more acute due to a global character of economic uncertainties. Their reflection on the largest outsourcing locations, coupled with rising IT wages and high staff attrition, hurt the quality of outsourcing delivery in the first place. Max Garkavtsev: "To minimize these outsourcing risks we propose efficient QA 'tools' for vendors control and management."

The core of new BugHuntress services is independent software testing and QA assessment of subcontractors' work. The more mature the outsourcing market is the wider independent quality services are of increasing importance. For example, Steve Phillips, CIO of Avnet, considers 3rd-party quality assessments as one of 10 crucial conditions of success in IT outsourcing.

Independent testing is not only a way "not to put all outsourcing eggs in one basket". The studies show that due to mitigation of outsourced software development and go-to-market risks the costs of independent software testing can be repaid a hundredfold. In combination with BugHuntress automated testing on the base of Selenium, TestComplete, Mercury LoadRunner and other industry standard tools it is ever more profitable and ensures high defect coverage and testing effectiveness.

To make BugHuntress testing services closer and more convenient for local customers Max Garkavtsev considers the opportunities to establish a new BugHuntress office in California. Along with the New York office it will help to represent BugHuntress QA Lab on both US coasts.

Max Garkavtsev is planning to hold a number of meetings with interested companies and take part in IT conferences in California. He can be reached at +1 (646) 498 6441, or through his LinkedIn profile.
