Quality and Reliability are two critical aspects that make or break any software product or service.
Indium Software’s Outsourced Functional Testing Services therefore focuses on ensuring the functionality, reliability and stability of a product/service before it enters the production phase.
Building a unified process, ensuring consistent quality and improved go-to-market parameters are the three pillars on which this practice rests. Each phase of software Testing/QA lifecycle is well planned and well executed. At a broad level, we commit to the following outcomes under our Functional Test practice:
Conformance to all technical specifications
Detailed test documentation, so as to make it easier when new features are added
Easy process for knowledge transfer across teams
Within the Functional Testing realm, we offer the following services
User Acceptance Testing (UAT)
(Using Both Test Automation & Manual)
Functional Testing Framework
At Indium Software , we adopt the following process to drive a functional testing engagement for a client:
Understand the software to be tested, plan the procedure for testing, and document the test process for all functional aspects of a product.
Set goals and scope of testing, resources required, the tools and environment needed, and the number of test cases required to ensure completeness. Prioritise the test cases to reduce delay and risk.
Automated functional testing to shorten test cycles, ensure greater accuracy and efficiency. This also reduces human errors.
Maintain a centralized data storage system for better management of bug/defect reporting.
Share visual reports to make post-test decision making easy
Map test plans to the product functionality and modify the test cases if needed.
During the testing process, we often uncover ideas to improve the software development process and new features ideas. These are often shared with the client as a value addion.
Be it Black-box testing or White-box testing, a robust functional testing process ensures superior user experience for the end-user, functional completeness and, most importantly, that the final software product behaves as expected. As a premium QA Service Provider, we’ve several decades of experience as a test partner for some of the world’s best software products. We have the experience, technical expertise as well as domain understanding to be able to ensure your product meets the best practices of your industry.
Indium Software’s functional testing technique rests on two bulwarks – early defect detection through a shift-left approach; and with a clear entry and exit criteria. It covers Integration testing, system testing, functional testing, regression testing and UAT.
In these type of testing, Indium Software gets involved right from Day 0, in the planning process and develops a test plan to cover the entire test cycle. Based on this, a reusable test case repository covering all business scenarios and the traceability matrix covering entire functional landscape are established. Intelligent Dashboards give accurate engagement information at every stage of the test cycle.
