Working in a very dynamic and ever-changing environment is a challenge when working with an offshore software testing team on any project. The value that TESTCo brings to Uplogix is less expensive QA labor costs without the sacrifice of quality of product. Through the use of TESTCo, and the offshore development team, we are able to realize tremendous savings of 2:1. We could not do this kind of work for the cost if we did not use this methodology.
Also, this type of scheduling exercise provides uninterrupted resources and therefore, we do not fall behind in our delivery to the customer. This also increases the engineer’s velocity factors without constant interruption.
There are some that find the time shift a difficult challenge when working with offshore software testing development teams, however, we found that it works to our benefit in that we save valuable time as we have a new test results every morning when we arrive in the office. TESTCo manages this flawlessly for us. This continual improvement process aids us to quickly discover what is working and what is not. It helps us quickly decide what the next goal is that is beneficial for both the client and the developers.
There were lots of challenges during development because we could not send gear and documentation, but by the use of TESTCo, were able to do the kind of work that others could not do which was repeated manual testing versus using someone in-house.
Working with TESTCo, Uplogix gets what we need, when we needed it. Every individual participates managing this rapidly changing environment. The high level of direct communication that TESTCo provides enables us to solve issues quickly and efficiently and facilitates a smooth execution of the project.
