QA Mentor Shortlisted for Four European Software Testing Awards
New York, US – September 26, 2016
For the second year in a row, QA Mentor is proud to announce that they’ve had the privilege of being picked as finalists in the European Software Testing Awards. Started in 2007, these awards are an annual event held in Central London celebrating the very best in the software testing and QA industry. The winners will be announced at the Gala dinner at Old Billingsgate, London on November 16th.
QA Mentor was selected as a finalist in four categories this year – Leading Vendor, Testing Manager of the Year, Testing Management Team of the Year, and Most Innovative Project.
The first, Leading Vendor, is one of the two categories QA Mentor was a finalist for in 2015. It’s is awarded to the vendor who receives top marks for their product or service. Judges look for a commitment to quality, customer satisfaction, and value for money, as well as reliability, flexibility, and speed. All of these qualities are things QA Mentor strives for with each project. Twelve other candidates are finalists alongside QA Mentor.
Testing Manager of the Year finalists, such as QA Mentor’s CEO Ruslan Desyatnikov, are those who have demonstrated the most outstanding individual test manager qualities such as consistent leadership, people management and communication skills, commitments to guidelines, and high quality standards. Evidence of similar qualities needs to be shown for the finalists for Testing Management Team of the year, a category that QA Mentor was also selected as a finalist for along with just five other vendors.
The final category, Most Innovative Project, is one that QA Mentor is especially proud of. QA Mentor assessed a financial institution’s QA process to identify inefficiencies and recommend and facilitate improvements. With QA Mentor’s help, the company achieved a 45% decrease in production performance issues, a reduced regression test cycle, and significant drops in defect leakage.
Founder and CEO Ruslan Desyatnikov stated, “Last year’s inclusion as finalists put QA Mentor alongside multibillion dollar companies and forced us to step up our game to push ourselves even harder. We raised the bar and this year we’ve doubled the categories in which we’re finalists and proved that we can hold our own in the big leagues.
While QA Mentor feels just being included as finalists is an honor and wish good luck to all finalists in all categories, they hope to bring home four awards from London this year. For more information on the awards and attending, please see the official website.
