"Q/A Testing Services - Performance 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”.

an image Performance Testing: Consider your own experience in interacting with an on-line application. If the application is responsive and stays up it’s very likely you will return to that site when you have similar interests. If the application appears to lag, is unresponsive, you get a message that you’ve timed out or just plain get bounced off you’ll probably look for an alternate site and take your business with you. Users have very little patience, even less loyalty and many other choices today so the performance of your systems and applications are essential to the health of your business. Questcon has been an integral player in load testing, stress testing and just as importantly, usability testing. We’ve helped clients in all industries build and retain customer loyalty through our understanding of consumer buying patterns, e-commerce metrics and our indepth expertise with tools and processes that identify performance issues before they become problems. We want your customers to be long term assets to your company.

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.

I wanted to give recognition to the very positive business relationship between Mott’s North America and HSI. Although we have had a sound relationship for years your involvement in our SAP project has been extremely helpful
