Smoke Testing Services

Our software testers and QA engineers will help you notice the smoke before it turns into a fire and make sure that critical bugs are noticed and fixed early!

SMOKE TESTING

Smoke testing is the first test run during the QA process. It tests the basic functionality and output of new features and makes sure mission-critical components of a system function properly. Effective smoke testing helps prevent the waste of QA resources on testing faulty software.

While often conducted by developers themselves, Smoke Testing is best left for experienced QA engineers. A fresh perspective on new functionality can help teams discover bugs and errors in places that in-house developers wouldn’t think to look. Furthermore, an experienced outsourced software testing team can become an integral part of your development workflow and help you implement CI/CD best-practices on your project. This can significantly reduce your release cycle and roll out new features to your end-users on a regular basis.

TestFort’s certified testers have worked on hundreds of projects for small businesses and enterprises, simple websites and complex FinTech solutions, mobile apps and large ERP systems. Whatever your current project’s demands — our team will be able to effectively conduct smoke testing services for your business.

REASONS TO CONDUCT SMOKE TESTING

  • Satisfied Clients
    Smoke testing saves a lot of time for both your development and QA team, allowing for more frequent releases and faster rollout of new features to your end-users.
  • Ensured Functionality
    Smoke testing is your first line of defense against faulty features and limited functionality. Any bugs or problems caught during the smoke testing phase reduce and minimize the overall cost of bug fixing on your project.
  • Effective Development
    Introducing smoke testing into your QA process is one of the most cost-effective and important factors in identifying and fixing defects in your software.

SMOKE TESTING RESULTS

  • Continuous Integration and Delivery
    CI/CD development practices help teams streamline their development and QA processes, allowing them to iterate faster without sacrificing the quality of their end-product. Establishing CI/CD development practices can be complicated, but our experienced QA team can both help you do this and become the reliable backbone of your software testing workflow.
  • Cost Reduction
    Conducting regular smoke testing on new (or updated) functionality ensures that features that don’t work as intended don’t get sent to further testing. This can eliminate a lot of wasted time for your QA team and thus guarantee a more effective budget allocation on your development project. Automating these smoke tests can further reduce the cost of software testing on your project.
  • QA Team Integration
    Successful smoke testing using CI/CD best practices requires that the QA team is integrated into the development process. Our experienced software testers can fit seamlessly into any development team regardless of its location, development methodology, or release schedule. This integration can then help you shorten release cycles and ensure delivery of your software on time and within budget.
  • Build Automation
    Smoke Testing is usually one of the firsts QA processes to become automated (followed by regression testing). Because of their simplicity and straightforwardness, automating smoke tests can be your project’s first step to automated testing and long-term reductions in development and QA costs throughout your project's lifetime.
