Finding a trustworthy software testing company is not piece of cake. It may take weeks, and it is guaranteed to cost you some efforts and nerves. Yet, it’s not like you can release your software solution without proper testing done. Users become less forgiving when it comes to less-than-perfect user experience and bugs.
What is more, if you are determined to update and improve your software, you will need to cooperate with a QA company on a regular basis. And if you don’t want to switch to another company in a rush because you need to meet deadlines, you’d better make sure your first choice is the optimal one.
Does this choice seem to be nearly impossible to make properly on the first try? Fear not — to help you out, we have listed the top 20 software QA companies that deserve your consideration. We have selected and ranked these companies based on five key indicators:
● Services. The range of services provided, their quality, specialization, experience, and skills possessed by the company’s employees.
● Operations. The efficiency and quality of the company’s organizational structure and internal management.
● Offering strategy. The company’s approach to delivering the services in terms of the methodology used, requirements management.
● Geographic strategy. The company’s ability to provide services to the clients outside of its country of operations efficiently and take into account the foreign market’s specifics.
