As our clients' development methodologies evolve, our QA services have evolved as well: Agile development, shorter test cycles, faster releases, more open source & Web apps and more automation. But our "QA Secret Sauce" is how we manage our company and our relationship with you. It's not just "best practices". It's humane, caring attention to the needs of our employees and our clients.
Software manual testing is crucial to guarantee high-quality performance. We have found that the best possible results are achieved when automation is supplemented with an appropriate manual component. Manual testing is also the most effective method for User Interface Testing, User Acceptance Testing, Usability Testing, testing of Error Handling, Installation and Security. Tests are executed to verify that your software runs properly and without defects on each required platform.
QASource´s extensive experience with software products, testing methods and automated test development tools allows us to efficiently evaluate your application and recommend the test development tools that best fit your needs. We work with a wide variety of test tool vendors, allowing us to provide informed, objective advice on test tool selection. QASource has a host of automated testing services to help your organization incorporate automated testing into your quality assurance process.
Automated Test Tool Evaluation and Selection
QASource eliminates the time and frustration involved in selecting the best automated tools. We have developed an extensive criteria for comparing Automated Test Tools. Our automation engineers will perform an evaluation of the leading automated test tools utilizing your application. After a thorough evaluation, a Test Tool Assessment is created which details our findings and recommendations. QASource will ensure that the test tool being considered is compatible with your testing environment before making the investment. Be assured that QASource performs these services with no bias or influence from the tool vendors.
Defining Automated Testing Strategies and Methodologies
Deciding on the right automation strategy for your project, while considering the application size and test-script maintenance - can be more frustrating than the process of selecting the tool itself. The wrong test automation strategy will result in chaos. QASource can help steer you toward success by defining and implementing an appropriate automation strategy and methodology.
Automated Test Development and Execution
Recruiting experienced resources and building an effective automation team can be difficult and time-consuming. With its team of Automation Engineers, QASource can build your test automation environment rapidly and effectively by developing automated test scripts, regression-testing your applications and creating a thorough assessment for each test cycle.

Customer loyalty can be directly attributed to the user-friendliness of your application or website. Failure to deliver 100% availability, flawless performance and a positive experience may impact your company's revenue and reputation. How do you really know if your application is ready for launch and is capable of handling the volume and functions of users before it malfunctions? QASouce’s performance testing services, load and stress-testing - will provide you with detailed information regarding the stability of your site, software and end-user experience.
QASource is able to simulate large loads on your applications and obtain quantitative information about the performance under a range of server loads. We use automation tools from companies such as Empirix's eload or Radview's WebLoad to create thousands of "virtual users" that resemble your own. For clients needing to test the performance of their web, application and database servers, we provide a variety of performance-related services.
Managed performance testing Solutions
We can manage your entire performance testing effort. After analyzing your performance testing needs, we will create a customized and detailed solution to test your applications and servers. By choosing to outsource your performance testing to QASource, you gain a high degree of confidence that your web site will be operating with optimum responsiveness, scalability, throughput and stability when you go live.
Stress & Load Testing
You are about to launch a new marketing promotion on your website. As a result, you are expecting a large increase in traffic to the site. The servers may or may not be able to handle the sudden increase. Not sure what your web, application and database servers limitations are? Stress and load testing will answer the question, "At what point will my servers overload and crash?" In stress-testing your servers, an intense workload will be generated quickly to stress the application to its limit.
Capacity & Scalability Testing
Capacity and scalability testing focuses on proactive solutions to problems that can arise when increased page requests lead to a decrease in response time. Rather than frustrate your users with slow loading and "error" messages, why not avoid these problems from the get-go with QASource's rigorous testing? Our QA outsourcing services will ensure that increases in your website traffic do not impact site performance or end-user satisfaction. QASource can design and execute automation tests that will simulate an increase in traffic to your site and measure the performance, stability and responsiveness of your servers. Results of the tests will be analyzed and reports will be created that detail the health and capacity of your servers during the simulation.

We spend a lot of time and effort on providing the most robust privacy and security testing services for our clients, to help them meet – and exceed – industry standards. Our goal is to help our clients plug their software security holes during the development process, which is the best time to incorporate security and privacy elements into an application.
Security can be breached or compromised in countless ways; unfortunately some situations that may contribute to these risks are not recognized until exceptional conditions occur. For example:
Our security testing services will address these concerns by artificially creating scenarios that mimic these types of activities, while simultaneously evaluating components that are susceptible to security breaches.
Our security testing services use a threat modeling (or risk modeling) technique to prioritize security testing and to maximize both the quantity and severity of the flaws we uncover. Our QA outsourcing teams will augment your internal security expertise to help you shorten your “time to value.” You will be able to leverage independent and expert security ratings, while implementing secure coding best practices globally across your product line
Before you begin manual and automated testing of your application, it is usually recommended to perform application programming interface (API) testing. API testing is an important step in QA and should be planned in the initial phases of test cycles, as it exposes coding issues that manual and automated tests may miss such as excess or unnecessary code. These code-level issues may seem small, but they can result in time delays and increased test efforts as your build progresses. Because API testing usually requires coding beyond the scope of the development team's responsibilities, QASource provides key API testing capabilities as an extension of your QA team.
API testing with ATCUS will help you:

In addition to "traditional" QA services, we can also help integrate your business requirements and processes into the QA process. The result? Cost-effective, practical QA solutions customized for your business.
We will thoroughly analyze the testing process, methodology and technologies currently being used. We will identify inefficiencies and roadblocks. We will perform testing analysis to determine the quality of the information resulting from those tests. We will assess the integrity, accuracy and volume of information. We will then evaluate possible options. Finally, we will define an effective information management approach.
QA Analysis will give you a clear picture of process flow, tools and roles. Our recommendations will help you improve your business processes, so that the work we are doing for you in the testing area will be optimally integrated and utilized. The benefits will extend beyond any single product or process and will include more efficient training and knowledge transfer, plus consistently faster time-to-market.
