Accessibility Testing

Our testing services ensure your website and mobile devices are WCAG 2.0 compliant WCAG 2.0 is a globally accepted standard for web accessibility developed by an international team of experts, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). WCAG 2.0 sets out guidelines for organizations to make their websites more accessible for people with disabilities. QA Consultants can help you become compliant. We have the skilled people, software, diagnostic tools, systems, hardware platforms and devices necessary to test compliance for your website. We can provide comprehensive reports that demonstrate your organization’s intent to meet these requirements while working closely with your in-house development teams and outside vendors to correct non-accessible web pages and interfaces.

Agile Testing

As more companies adopt the agile development process, agile testing will continue to grow in importance for the success of any project. QA Consultants offers testing services that align with agile development to provide continuous feedback and ensure continuous quality. Working hand in hand with your developers and stakeholders, the QA Consultants team integrates agile testing from the beginning and throughout the development process. Test leads take part in the daily scrum and pay close attention to applying test automation where possible to solidify and make the process as accurate, quick and efficient as possible.

Functional Testing

We leverage our expertise and experience to probe any potential problem area and respond to all your software requirements across desktop and web applications, embedded software and API. Some specific types of functional tests may include : Regression testing, Usability testing, Smoke testing and Sanity testing.

Integration Testing

True to the purpose of integration testing, QA Consultants verifies functional, performance and reliability requirements of your major design items. These design features are assessed with black box testing and simulated success and error cases using a specialized “building block” approach that adds verified assemblages to a verified base, which is then used to support the integration testing of further assemblages. QA Consultants employs a variety of types of integration testing such as big bang, top-down and bottom-up and integration patterns such as collaboration integration, backbone integration, layer integration, client/server integration, distributed services integration and high-frequency integration.

Security Testing

QA Consultants goes to great lengths to make certain your software, web applications and enterprise systems are unbreachable and all your data are secure and functional. In the current climate, it’s not enough to be prepared in case your security is attacked but rather when it is attacked. As technology advances, so do the advanced and creative approaches to infiltrating systems. QA Consultants’ advantage is our impressive roster of the industry’s top security experts who have an acute ability to understand the attacker mindset to identify any and all vulnerabilities and potential methods of attack. We will make sure your needs are met to the highest degree because we understand that today’s security risks are simply too great to be just a checkmark.

Data Testing

While testing data quality can be a major undertaking, it also yields extraordinary results. Whenever the quality of millions or billions of bits of data is in question, improvement by even a couple of percentage points has a tremendous total effect. However, because this is a fairly new science, there is no standard approach to data testing, and even key quality determinants such as completeness, comprehensiveness, correctness, structure and cleanliness might not always be consistent. At QA Consultants, data testing has been a basic offering for some time, as we understand that quality data is increasingly critical to driving innovation and progress. With the growth of the overall “decision science” field, the importance of data warehousing, data testing and business intelligence has spiked over the past 20 years. With our research and development dollars heavily invested in this field, QA Consultants is in a unique position to provide the most up-to-date and comprehensive solutions, including data acquisition, integration, storage and presentation. In partnership with iCEDQ, QA Consultants has both the expertise and the experience to handle large-scale data aggregation. Read more in our Primer on Data Testing.
