QUALITY
ASSURANCE

The quality of your software products is an important factor to ensure effective
business operations, unchallenged reputation and customer satisfaction to name a few.

Whether you’re a startup without your own Quality Assurance team, or an enterprise looking to ensure your app is usable across all the latest platforms and devices, QA services can make sure you “get it right the first time.” Appworks approaches QA with emphasis on quality over quantity. All of our testers are hand-picked and reflect the highest standards for both excellence and experience in the industry. Our QA experts support a range of testing processes, all steeped in the Agile methodology, to ensure your software not only works, but performs exceptionally well in any scenario and stands apart from the competition.

Get it right the first time

Originally treated as an after-thought, software quality assurance is now an integral part of any software development lifecycle, and covers many different scenarios. Products can now be simultaneously launched on multiple platforms, supporting different devices, and the challenge is greater now than ever to ensure functionality across the board.

Get it right the first time

You only have one chance with a new customer to make an impression, and word spreads quickly through social media sites whether a product delivers what you promised. QA can spell the difference between a great product concept marred with bugs and a smooth, successful launch that attracts an all-important audience of early adopters and influencers. As your product offering expands, our regression testing service is a critical part of the process to ensure that any new enhancements and features work as intended, while not breaking existing functionality.

Testing while you sleep – with automation

We believe quality assurance is part of everyone’s responsibility on the team, including developers performing unit testing as part of a Devops process. A formal QA process, however, prior to release is a critical opportunity for another set of eyes to take a look at an application from different angles, perhaps ones not anticipated during development.

Automation plays a key role in this process. Our QA team is well-versed in automated testing platforms, including Selenium. Test scripts written by our QA experts can be be executed instantly, re-used and simultaneously run across different browsers and operating systems whenever a new release is offered, saving time and cost. Testers are thus freed up to focus on edge cases and more difficult-to-find bugs, breakdowns in the exchanges of data and services used as part of a larger platform, and other potential bottlenecks and performance considerations.

Put your best foot forward with our full complement of services

Our QA staff can perform a variety of different types of testing depending on the needs, often concurrently as part of a holistic testing process. Examples of the types of testing services include:

Functionality testing

Functionality testing: does your product perform as expected?

With today’s modern web landscape, a lot can go wrong. Anything from data validation, display of dynamic content and images, and different types of user inputs are all areas to look at to ensure a release runs smoothly.

Compatibility testing

Compatibility testing: does your product work anywhere?

Potential customers are using a variety of different browsers and operating systems. QA ensures your product works smoothly across the most common combinations. Choosing where to draw the line is often a question of cost vs. reach — we can help you decide what combinations to support for maximum value.

Accessibility testing

Accessibility testing: can anyone use your product?

Often overlooked, this type of testing can ensure that anyone can view and use your product, regardless of disability. Your customers will appreciate the effort you put in to ensure they can use the product like anyone else.

Localization testing

Localization testing: does your product work around the world?

Products that support multiple languages can introduce significant new challenges to make sure everyone is getting the same experience. Correct translations, displays of wording (with varying lengths), time and currency displays, and even cultural considerations can all be addressed with proper localization testing.

Performance testing

Performance testing: can your product stand up to its demand?

A product can be a victim of its own success and fail with too much traffic. Our QA team can test a variety of different scenarios, including simulated loads and stress factors to uncover weak spots in the code or application architecture. Proper performance testing can also measure and determine the right amount of infrastructure to invest in, avoiding the common mistake of over-estimating the amount of scalability required.

Usability testing

Usability testing: is your product a delight to use?

Even applications that successfully address all technical requirements can still fail if they are difficult to use. Our QA staff can apply their experience and training to uncover opportunities to re-engineer interactions and even make simple tweaks to vastly improve the overall customer experience.

These are just a few examples of the QA services we provide.

WHEREAS Appworks and the Second Party (the "Parties") have an interest in participating in discussions wherein either Party might share information with the other that the disclosing Party considers to be proprietary and confidential to itself ("Confidential Information"); and

WHEREAS the Parties agree that Confidential Information of a Party might include, but not be limited to that Party's: (1) business plans, methods, and practices; (2) personnel, customers, and suppliers; (3) inventions, processes, methods, products, patent applications, and other proprietary rights; or (4) specifications, drawings, sketches, models, samples, tools, computer programs, technical information, or other related information;

NOW, THEREFORE, the Parties agree as follows:

  1. Either Party may disclose Confidential Information to the other Party in confidence provided that the disclosing Party identifies such information as proprietary and confidential either by marking it, in the case of written materials, or, in the case of information that is disclosed orally or written materials that are not marked, by notifying the other Party of the proprietary and confidential nature of the information, such notification to be done orally, by e-mail or written correspondence, or via other means of communication as might be appropriate.
  2. When informed of the proprietary and confidential nature of Confidential Information that has been disclosed by the other Party, the receiving Party ("Recipient") shall, for a period of three (3) years from the date of disclosure, refrain from disclosing such Confidential Information to any contractor or other third party without prior, written approval from the disclosing Party and shall protect such Confidential Information from inadvertent disclosure to a third party using the same care and diligence that the Recipient uses to protect its own proprietary and confidential information, but in no case less than reasonable care. The Recipient shall ensure that each of its employees, officers, directors, or agents who has access to Confidential Information disclosed under this Agreement is informed of its proprietary and confidential nature and is required to abide by the terms of this Agreement. The Recipient of Confidential Information disclosed under this Agreement shall promptly notify the disclosing Party of any disclosure of such Confidential Information in violation of this Agreement or of any subpoena or other legal process requiring production or disclosure of said Confidential Information.
  3. All Confidential Information disclosed under this Agreement shall be and remain the property of the disclosing Party and nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as granting or conferring any rights to such Confidential Information on the other Party. The Recipient shall honor any request from the disclosing Party to promptly return or destroy all copies of Confidential Information disclosed under this Agreement and all notes related to such Confidential Information. The Parties agree that the disclosing Party will suffer irreparable injury if its Confidential Information is made public, released to a third party, or otherwise disclosed in breach of this Agreement and that the disclosing Party shall be entitled to obtain injunctive relief against a threatened breach or continuation of any such breach and, in the event of such breach, an award of actual and exemplary damages from any court of competent jurisdiction.
  4. The terms of this Agreement shall not be construed to limit either Party’s right to develop independently or acquire products without use of the other Party’s Confidential Information. The disclosing party acknowledges that the Recipient may currently or in the future be developing information internally, or receiving information from other parties, that is similar to the Confidential Information. Nothing in this Agreement will prohibit the Recipient from developing or having developed for it products, concepts, systems or techniques that are similar to or compete with the products, concepts, systems or techniques contemplated by or embodied in the Confidential Information provided that the Recipient does not violate any of its obligations under this Agreement in connection with such development.
  5. Notwithstanding the above, the Parties agree that information shall not be deemed Confidential Information and the Recipient shall have no obligation to hold in confidence such information, where such information:
    • (a) Is already known to the Recipient, having been disclosed to the Recipient by a third party without such third party having an obligation of confidentiality to the disclosing Party; or
    • (b) Is or becomes publicly known through no wrongful act of the Recipient, its employees, officers, directors, or agents; or
    • (c) Is independently developed by the Recipient without reference to any Confidential Information disclosed hereunder; or
    • (d) Is approved for release (and only to the extent so approved) by the disclosing Party; or
    • (e) Is disclosed pursuant to the lawful requirement of a court or governmental agency or where required by operation of law.
  6. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to constitute an agency, partnership, joint venture, or other similar relationship between the Parties.
  7. Neither Party will, without prior approval of the other Party, make any public announcement of or otherwise disclose the existence or the terms of this Agreement.
  8. This Agreement contains the entire agreement between the Parties and in no way creates an obligation for either Party to disclose information to the other Party or to enter into any other agreement.
  9. This Agreement shall remain in effect for a period of two (2) years from the Effective Date unless otherwise terminated by either Party giving notice to the other of its desire to terminate this Agreement. The requirement to protect Confidential Information disclosed under this Agreement shall survive termination of this Agreement.
