Quality Assurance – A Major Phase of Web Development

Information Process Solutions – IPS USA executes quality assurance (QA) services to ensure the best results in every project. We offer QA testing services in various sectors such as software, websites, and mobile-based applications.

The terms of quality assurance and quality control are often used interchangeably. However, quality control refers to the product or service after the production phase, whereas quality assurance is in play during production.

QA, according to Wikipedia, is a way of avoiding mistakes in manufactured products. At the same time, when someone sells products and/or services, QA means the removal of errors before you put them on sale.

IPS USA delivers error-free products and/or services (BPO) in terms of software development, android app development, iOS app development, social media marketing, SEO, PPC, and digital marketing services. Hence, everything about us is about you. Another trademark of the company is 100% guaranteed customer satisfaction which is why you will not be disappointed.

Automation Testing

The software testing undergoes without any human intervention with the help of specialized programs. The experts at IPS USA design and develop quality assurance programs which initiate the process of testing, increase the overall work efficiency and get rid of errors.

Automation testing is an automatic technique when we write a script and use it to test the software. Like regression testing, automation testing tests the application from loading, performance and stress aspects.

Functional Testing

Functional testing is one of the processes of quality assurance. It is a black-box testing technique that involves test cases according to specifications of the software in question. By calling functions in a program via dummy input, we examine the output of chunks of code. The name itself pretty much describes the term.

We use this it to ensure product quality. Until the final product meets the specifications and functional details of our clients, the process doesn’t stop. IPS USA delivers only when the final product fulfills its purpose and aligns with your business strategy.

 

Stress Testing

As the name says, it has everything to do with testing the software out. First, you put in normal ingredients to prepare a dish – People eat it and fully enjoy it. Second, you add some extra spices and serve it to people, but the next thing you see is people screaming aloud. That is what we do to test the software beyond its normal limits. If it gives up and crashes, the coding definitely needs more work.

We make sure that the finished product remains stable under stress and survives the rough patch. A strong code never fails to respond even when the going gets tough. When there are, simultaneous uploads to a website, thousands of visitors visiting, and constantly interacting with it, that seems like an unusual amount of load – The longer it remains stable, the better is the base code.

Usability Testing

It is the next type of testing that software or website has to undergo in order to come out as responsive and customer-ready.

And, it involves the direct feedback of users. User-centered interaction design makes use of this testing method to the maximum. We can easily consider it as an invaluable method to judge the power of software to meet its intended purpose.

We collect important feedback about user-friendliness and efficiency of the system and consequently make the necessary changes. It is crucial to gaining a client’s confidence.

Examples of products which make the best use of usability testing are food, consumer products, websites or android/iOS applications, and computer interfaces. Usability testing measures the usability of a product – how easily it can be used.

Compatibility Testing

One of the most important phases of software development in modern times is compatibility testing! Since the programs run on Android and apple-based platforms, the apps/software need to be compatible with them, to begin with.

No matter how advanced your code is, if it faces difficulty running in a multitude of environments, the final product clearly needs improvements. By different environments, we mean it has to run on different hardware, operating systems (OS), networks or mobile devices.

Operating system compatibility testing means the Android or the iOS app has to run on Linux, Mac, and windows.

The testing type further divides into two branches – Forward compatibility testing and backward compatibility testing. They mostly deal with issues such as security, usability, and general usability.
