Completed Projects

How often does this happen for so many companies? They are working hard on an important project that consumes all of their development resources but someone higher up pushes another project through. They don’t have the manpower to fully test the new project because their QA resources are dedicated elsewhere. Their options are to hire more full time staff, hire some temps, or have their already taxed team work overtime. This scenario happens quite frequently, and there’s a good chance it’s happened in your business already. QA Mentor can help rescue you with a far more appealing option. Let us do the testing for you.

With this service we will hand-pick a team dedicated solely to your project. Our professionals will work with your developers, business analysts, and managers to go over requirements, build a comprehensive test plan, design thorough test cases, rapidly execute the tests, help remediate defects, and retest until the project is satisfactorily completed. The same individuals will be with you from beginning to end, so they have a complete understanding of the project and how you want it done, and you will always know exactly who you are dealing with. The same QA Engineers that develop the test cases will also execute them, leaving no room for misunderstandings and greatly expediting the process.

Request More Information

Here’s how it generally works:

One of our experienced QA Experts will get in touch with the lead contact from your company and find out exactly what is required. They will determine the current state of the project life cycle, the deadlines, and simply what your team needs and expects from us. After that meeting, the QA Mentor Expert will evaluate the information gathered and provide a timely and accurate estimation of effort. This estimation will include the time needed to complete the project and the number of resources necessary to hit your targeted date. If everyone is in agreement, we will assemble the team. Your new team will start work as early as the next day by going over all documentation you give us and/or moving through any mockups or prototypes to develop a comprehensive plan of attack.

Once the general plan is created, work on test cases begins in earnest. Your QA Mentor team will work together and with any resources you provide to create a requirements traceability matrix, which consists of high level scenarios mapped to functional requirements. From there, all of the necessary, detailed test cases to cover complete functionality and requirements are started. Our test cases are grouped by type, such as negative, UI, field validation, database, security, integration, or health/sanity check. This documentation will be delivered to and approved by you. Once development is complete, the same team of professionals will rigorously begin testing, documenting all defects they find in the process. Daily reports and updates will be handled by the QA Mentor Lead throughout the entire testing process.
