QA Consultants – About Us


QA Consultants – What we do


 

Trusted by Industry Leaders

For months we had problems getting to the root of our quality assurance problems. QA Consultants helped us precisely identify the quality issues, recommended practical actions, and guided us through a very difficult turnaround. We are more efficient and better equipped to produce world-class products because of the people, processes, and insights QA Consultants brought to our company.

Jeff HuffDirector of Engineering, Adobe

When you’re in the middle of a difficult and time-consuming systems integration, you’re always expecting something to go wrong. That makes you feel ‘on edge’ and powerless. At the same time, you’re hoping that nothing wrong happens because of the impact it will have on all departments and offices. QA Consultants understood that. That’s why they were able to deploy the right people on-site (and off-site) to ensure the integration went on without a hitch.

Senior QA Manager

QA Consultants is an integral part of our business and has been for the past two years. Working on the largest account in our Toronto office, their team leads the QA efforts by developing comprehensive test plans and performing them across projects of varying complexity. Throughout the process, we receive regular status reports and collaborate during defect fixing to ensure the functional and non-functional requirements are satisfied. They demonstrate a solid understanding of development life cycles and have always had excellent communication skills. I look forward to more opportunities to engage with a great team.

Colton HornerProject Manager Blast Radius

Aviva has engaged QA Consultants on dozens of mission-critical testing projects over the past eight years. During these years QA Consultants demonstrated true partnership and a commitment to innovative testing and service practices, especially the Toronto-based Test Factory, which has consistently delivered value-added testing services. These new forms of business value that improve customer satisfaction and optimize cost are a true representation of the most progressive client/provider relationship.

One of the great things about working with QA Consultants was their ability to seamlessly integrate and stay connected with our distributed and freelance team. They joined a complicated project with many moving parts and, despite multiple pivots and shifts in priority, they were able to provide a complete solution. I appreciated the willingness from all members of the QA Consultants team to dive right into a challenging environment that ultimately helped us deliver the best product we could.

Garrett RichSr. Product Operations Manager

QA Consultants provided a cost effective and efficient solution that increased our ability to come to market with higher quality when we needed it. Their service not only increased our bandwidth, but improved the level of quality we could otherwise provide.

Danielle Cocanougher Vice President

QA Consultants provided a cost effective and collaborative solution to support our quality needs while allowing us to scale our business. Their approach was one of true partnership, focused on our business outcomes, quality of customer experience, and mutual success.

Mark LythgoeCTO

Since the project kickoff, QAC has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to excellence in customer service and support. Coupled with their deep technical expertise of the HP ALM solution, customer-centric approach and effective communication style, we feel lucky to have worked with QAC and have no doubt that they played a major role in the success of this engagement. Overall, we are very pleased with the relationship we have developed with QAC and look forward to continuing this through the next phases of the contract.

Jay Welbourn Manager, Quality Assurance and Training

It has been a very long road to get to this milestone of complete Performance Testing. I am happy with what QAC has been able to accomplish in such a short period of time with all the obstacles and roadblocks you have encountered. You have persevered and were able to deliver on your commitments on schedule and with quality. The work you have done lays an excellent foundation for the capabilities and improvements you will be able to provide to use in the future.

Richard Blackwood Performance Testing Manager

We selected QA Consultants as our QA and Testing Partner, and they have been great at not only enabling test automation for our most time consuming mortgage ingestion process, but also supporting us with agile tools adoption and On Demand resourcing which is helping us achieve significant cost savings, efficiencies and overall quality.

Saeyed Shamlou Director, Quality Management & Testing

QAC brought the ability to jump in immediately and produce usable results within hours. Their QA knowledge and understanding of our Digital agency business were critical to our mutual success.

David McDowall Digital Solutions Manager

We chose QAC because they brought the best mix of mobile experience, reasonable cost, high quality process, and understanding our needs as a small fast startup org. Their test team really melded with our in house staff making it really feel like we had the much larger staff we needed, not just a run of the mill consulting/contracting engagement.

Mark ChwehCTO

Based on the work QA Consultants has done, we are going about our QA craft differently.
