What is Software Quality Assurance & Testing and why are they important?

Updated: Dec 18, 2018



A prevailing habit among complacent businesses, especially traditional ones, is to face challenges only as they arise. Confidence and trust in one’s way of doing business is a good character, however, the lack of ability to foresee and anticipate obstacles is another thing.


Many businesses, if not all, are experimenting with new technologies in the pursuit of simpler and more efficient processes, although not all understand the importance of consistently ensuring the performance of each software and application used.


With the prevalence of software and application use among businesses, may it be retail stores or coffee shops, software quality assurance and testing services that proof systems have become an imperative requirement now more than ever.


Software quality assurance and testing by definition is a process that ensures that a developed software meets and complies with defined or standardized qualifications. It consistently checks the developed software to guarantee that it meets desired quality measures.


It is essential to understand the risks of taking software quality assurance and testing too lightly. It helps to look back on software disasters that hit prominent companies such as one experienced by Starbucks in 2015. The glitch in their point-of-sale (POS) system affected more than 60 percent of roughly 13,500 locations in the U.S. and Canada. System hiccups that could force companies to halt operations and lose sales can be prevented with effective QA and testing.


BlastAsia answers this need with a full range of Software Quality Assurance and Testing services that detect bugs, errors and defects to certify high-quality and reliable web and mobile applications. BlastAsia takes pride in its team of Microsoft-certified test engineers equipped with knowledge in automation testing and are also adept with Microsoft Test Manager (MTM ) for Test Plan, Test Suite and Test Case Creation, Test Case Execution and Exploratory Testing, Bugs Creation and Tracking, Test Plan Generation and Test Results Reporting in order to perform Manual Testing.


BlastAsia’s core testing offerings include Mobile Application Testing and Web Application Testing that verify and see errors or missing requirements to ensure the quality and performance of software and applications.


At these times when uncertainties are just around the corner, it pays to recognize the value of investing in Software Quality Assurance and Testing in avoiding major business risks such as loss of customers, revenue and brand credibility.
