"Q/A Testing Services - Manual Testing"Nearly a decade ago Questcon Technologies was acquired by and integrated with Howard Systems International. The result has been a case study in effective expansion and clear direction---the combination of HSI’s talent acquisition abilities and Questcon’s methodologies, proven processes and depth of QA & testing expertise created a quality-focused organization more powerful than the sum of the parts. Questcon’s subject matter experts were nationally recognized as thought leaders in the industry. They had a broad portfolio of QA & testing solutions but lacked the size and investment ability to meet the demands of a national client base. HSI brought management oversight and guidance, financial resources and a growth-oriented business plan to the merger. We are now at the top of the quality assurance pyramid. We are completely “Client Focused—Solution Driven”.
Manual Testing: There’s nothing glamorous about manual testing—it’s labor intensive, generally unexciting, prone to errors and often occupies a second place status in an IT organization. We recognize the difficulties in finding, hiring and retaining staff willing to make a long term commitment to work in such an environment. Many companies have found it cost-effective to offload responsibility for the execution, and in some cases, the management of manual testing groups to Howard Systems. We are equally adept in filling these needs for individuals or large volume teams to work at our clients’ sites or in our Test Center of Excellence in Greensboro, NC. Our recruiting group specializes in finding and screening people with a combination of technical & interpersonal skills necessary to find satisfaction in manual testing roles.
Questcon’s approach for assuring software quality is founded on the fact that the highest return on a company’s software investment is achieved when defects are identified and corrected at the earliest point in the SDLC. Our QuestAssuredTM methodology strives for total quality from Day One in the software development process. We know the impact of errors, the costs of response time degradation and system crashes and the downside impact these can have on your customers and users. That’s why we approach every engagement with the goal of Zero Defects.
Thank you for providing such quality individuals for this short term project. I will call Howard Systems again in the future when additional technical staff is needed
