What is Quality Assurance
And why should it be an integral part of your project
Quality Assurance is a structured process that raises the quality of a project to a higher level by finding and preventing errors or defects within software that’s already finished, but also by preventing possible issues while software is being developed.
Since users have zero tolerance for apps and websites that are slow, complicated or just don’t work as they’re supposed to, Quality Assurance is a way of ensuring that you’ll find issues within your software before your users do.
These are the main benefits you will get by making QA a core aspect of your business.
QA prevents the most expensive software repairs — those discovered by users after an app or a website had already been released.
Less wasted time
When issues are detected and solved early, you have more time to focus on launching your digital solution or improving your business.
Problems discovered before work starts on any other part of the project means the efficiency of people involved rises across the board.
Improved user satisfaction
Apps and websites with errors lead users to the competition, apps and websites without errors lead users to recommend them to everyone they know.
Increased focus on goals
Structured QA makes sure all people involved on the project understand the real needs of users and the ultimate goal of the project itself.
Clear project overview
QA activities result in a detailed pulse check report — with a list of issues, their severity and advice on how to handle them.
All testing activities are structured and conducted according to the detailed plan created upon the initial inspection of your software.
Implementation of every change within the project is followed by an additional set of tests to ensure everything functions as planned.
QA activities need to evolve as software itself evolves, and we conduct it through continuous test executions and test reporting.
Through structured sets of sequential manual and automated tests, we ensure the optimal quality of advanced digital solutions across a number of systems, frameworks and devices.
Plug & play
With a detailed plan, structured process and a streamlined workflow, our team starts working from the moment you give the green light.
You have a complete overview of the entire project — from current tasks and milestones to budgets and timelines.
Our QA team’s expertise resulted in hundreds of successfully finished projects and dozens of satisfied clients.
Top of the line and without compromises — we as a company wouldn’t accept anything below, and neither should you.
Communication with Bornfight was open and straightforward, they focused on understanding the details to deliver the best solution. We had regular follow ups and their response was always quick. Reliable team in every sense of the word.
They are highly responsive, providing updates on timelines and project progress. Their team went above and beyond in understanding our brand and providing excellent service.
Bornfight understands what does or doesn’t make sense for mobile users, so it’s no surprise that a lot of our users praised the new app’s intuitiveness and ease of use.
The success of quality assurance activities lies in the experience of our in-house experts, as well as the approach we use.
We practice full transparency, so you can see exactly what has been done and how much budget has been spent at any point.
A dedicated project manager continuously organizes the work, coordinates communication, re-evaluates requirements and manages risks.
The process we use is both agile and flexible — we focus on what’s important to your business and adapt the process to fit your needs.
Every decision that is made during the project completely revolves around your business goals – this aspect guides the production process.
Manual or automated QA?
Is one type of testing better than the other
Manual and automated tests are completely different kinds of QA activities and there should never be a question of should you use only one or the other.
In order to have a desired quality of the app, web or software, an important thing is to find the right balance between these two — that is the task of QA professionals.
Performed by detail-oriented testers who can put themselves in users’ shoes, manual testing is very important as it focuses on exploring the software and its behavior, as well as user experience and software’s overall usability.
Used for understanding how the system works and how it generally behaves.
Used for testing software on different operating systems and all supported browsers.
Used for evaluating software’s quality, stability, safety and capacity.
Used for testing all of software’s functionalities or just a particular feature.
Used for checking defined user flows within a web or an app, and how they’re executed.
Used for seeing if the system is designed and accessible to people with disabilities.
Used for comparing the current state of responsive layout and renderings with the design.
Used for seeing if a previously tested system performs equally well after new changes.
Used for testing the performance of a system under increased load.
Cross-platform or exploratory testing on mobile devices.
Used for testing backend routes and detecting possible errors.
Used for checking whether the system is vulnerable in any way.
Conducted by using scripts, code or automation tools, automated testing is ideal when you need to repeat the same test many times with the same or different data sets, detect if errors are repetitive or if parts of the system broke down after being modified.
Frontend end-to-end testing
They test the entire flow users go through, and detect if there are problems that could prevent users from conducting desired actions.
Backend API testing
Extremely useful tests to see if all routes work well and if there are any conflicts when it comes to integrating with new features.
