A development project is not effective only because it has been built and done on time and with the estimated budget. There is another key element that plays a significant role in success — quality.
Software testing and Quality Control (QC) have the objective to evaluate how well the software application is performing and check whether the development met the requirements set by our clients. Software testing means that we are able to identify possible bugs, defects, or weaknesses of the implementations, quality or usability of a program, to guarantee that the product complies with the quality standards we are committed to.
Our software quality mindset, along with the use of the best software testing techniques, have helped us to deliver technical solutions that have enhanced many businesses’ growth.
WHY IS SOFTWARE TESTING NECESSARY?
It is mostly because we all make mistakes. Several factors can cause a system to fail, and this can be costly for your company. Having the right software testing services will ensure that a dedicated tester team will work on identifying and removing faults on time. This increases software quality and reliability of the application and reduces maintenance costs.
At Hexacta, we conceive quality as the backbone of all of our projects — regardless of the methodology, Agile or traditional, a factor that must be continuously monitored. Therefore, we encourage including testing from the early stages of the development process, so potential mistakes and misunderstandings are minimized.
We understand that to guarantee excellence in software development, the testing area is more than just a role in a project; it’s a whole workforce, encouraging all testers to work together to accomplish one only goal — quality. Therefore, we offer two different flexible team configurations, depending on the business needs: the testing team as an independent group or as part of the software development team.
OUR SOFTWARE TESTING PROCESS
The software testing process is implemented in all projects and covers the following stages:
DEFINE TESTING PLAN
DESIGN TEST CASES

Manual and automated test cases are run. Identified issues are reported
