TESTCo is a software QA outsourcing company designed and built specifically to produce Real Value Every Day for each of our clients. Your customers depend on your promise to deliver high quality software. When you ask for our help, we take that very seriously.
Test Plans That Deliver Value
Most software QA outsourcing is aimed specifically at reducing the cost and time to get your software tested. While that is generally a good approach, we believe that it is overly simplistic and leaves value unclaimed and unrealized. We think value can be measured by the ratio of effort to benefits. The higher the benefits and lower the effort, the more value. We believe what you’re truly looking for is not just testing, but help to achieve your software project or business goal with as much benefit as possible and as little cost as possible. A standard test plan’s goal is to test as much as possible in the time allotted. A TESTCo Test Plan will show you the best way to test your software and achieve your business goals.
We plan and measure extensively. We build Value Propositions each quarter that direct our work to achieving your specific long term goals. We work with you to build Software Quality Plans for each release that match your company’s pace and process. Each Test Engineer builds a daily plan that connects their work activities with your current release status. Each Test Engineer reports twice daily to ensure that we’re always directly in sync with your software development team.
We only Hire Software Test Engineers
Engineers find and solve problems. Software and technology is becoming more complex and distributed every day. Testers may work okay for light or highly repetitive testing but they quickly fall short when your application’s complexity rises. Critical defects become more difficult to find and reproduce so they can be fixed. Too often, software testing is left to testers or failed developers and this usually results in poor quality for your customers. Software Test Engineers provide the expertise and experience to make sure your software meets your quality goals.
We Use a QA Manager on Every Project
We have learned that the talent and value of a Software Test Engineer really shines through when they are coupled with an experienced QA Manager. QA Managers provide a highly valuable bridge between technology and business that allows the Software Test Engineer to focus almost exclusively on software testing. QA Managers are responsible for ensuring that your business and technical goals are planned, executed and delivered on a daily basis. In fact, we believe this so strongly that TESTCo provides a QA Manager on every project at no additional charge.
Status Reports 2x a Day
Our daily planning and twice-daily reporting show you exactly where we are, where we’re going and what we will produce to meet your goals. This ensures that the work we do for you is exactly what you want, exactly when you want it. That’s an important service, we believe, for a software QA outsourcing to provide.
TESTCo Builds Confidence First
Our job is to identify and mitigate risk in your software to meet your business and technical goals. When you first start with us, we recognize that we need to prove ourselves to you. We come equipped with a full toolbox of software quality tools and will default to any of your specific processes or formats. Once we’ve proven to you that we can deliver to your satisfaction, we will begin a slow process of introducing some of our other tools and processes so that your confidence in your software quality improves. We help you to be proud of your software.
Then TESTCo Builds Speed
Business and technology are moving faster every day. TESTCo helps you go faster. We’ve seen countless software production projects and have extensive knowledge and experience in what works and what does not work. TESTCo’s QA Manager and Software Test Engineer will begin identifying small changes that can be implemented quite easily that can product large increases in the speed at which you can deliver software to your customers.
Put TESTCo on Your Side
TESTCo is designed and built to help you honor the promises you make to your customers. If you are not confident in your software or need to release software faster, we’d like to earn the opportunity to be your software QA outsource testing company.
I can pass off an entire business problem (‘we need testing’) and count on it being solved well.

Timothy R.GHH Commerce
We continue to work with TESTCo because of the consistent high quality product and the fact the TESTCo team feels more like a strategic business partner instead of a vendor.
Going forward, we expect that TESTCo will enable us to better handle the peak demands in both development and QA.
