Testing and QA Services

Software testing and quality assurance are what makes difference between a good project and a great one, as proven by our experience as a software outsourcing company.

Empower your business with reliable software

Do you know how much a small software error in testing and QA costs? A study by the University of Cambridge shows that development bugs come at the global price of $312 billion per year. Meanwhile, the cost of fixing an error after product release is up to 100 times more than one found during the testing/QA stage.

There is one simple rule: those who fail to plan, plan to fail. Good news is, business owners can prevent these outcomes with prompt investments in testing services.

Project sustainability is all about smart and timely software testing and quality assurance strategy. QArea is proven to test and build award-winning software with 100+ quality assurance and software testing engineers.

Our continuous focus on quality has given us long-term partnerships with our clients, over 60% of whom return to us for QA and testing services for all their software projects. As an experienced QA company, we value transparency, reliability, responsibility. Our clients are aware of every step of the project, starting from requirement gathering and ending with being able to see how their outsourcing team is spending their time. We created project management tools and code evaluation algorithms to make testing and development completely transparent. The process is clear: what resources were spent, why, and how.

Moreover, QArea provides continuous support, even after the project has been released. We feel responsible for every new product and make sure it pays off as a long-term investment for your business. Therefore, QArea always assists with software maintenance, refactoring, and tech debt control.
