Ensuring the quality of your software solution through testing and QA is crucial for maintaining stability and performance, and for providing a reliable product to your users. However, building an in-house QA team can be costly and difficult. Finding highly skilled QA engineers may also be a challenge, and even the most experienced testers require time to integrate with your current operations, which may be a luxury you don't have. Dedicated software QA teams are the key to ensuring the quality of your software product. Vendors typically offer a comprehensive range of testing services to guarantee the spotless quality, performance, security, and stability of your software. By choosing cost-effective and flexible dedicated QA team services, you can save up to 40% on your initial testing budget.
A dedicated QA team, working remotely, can provide the same level of service as an in-house team. They are fully integrated into all project activities, including daily stand-ups, planning, and retrospective meetings. The dedicated QA team firms customize their services to fit clients' specific needs, including setting up a QA process, creating test documentation, developing a testing strategy, and writing/executing a wide range of tests such as functional, performance, security, compatibility, compliance, accessibility, API and more.
An external dedicated QA team can provide valuable insights that may have been overlooked during the development of your project. They thoroughly analyze every aspect of your product, identifying and highlighting areas for improvement.
When To Hire A Dedicated QA Team?
When you want:
- to augment your in-house development team with remote testers through a dedicated team model (you don't wish to hire, train, and retain QA staff) or even to mix dedicated teams from different vendors to add specific testing expertise;
- scale your QA team rapidly if you work in a fast-paced and constantly changing industry and the need to expand your team arises unexpectedly;
- to pause or terminate the partnership whenever your project reaches your desired level of quality;
- to concentrate on the business and not fully participate in the QA process;
- to ensure a swift launch for your project and deliver results within the agreed timeframe, because time is just as important as quality to you: with tough competition from industry leaders, every hour counts;
- to take advantage of salary gaps, cut operational costs and avoid additional responsibilities such as taxes and payroll;
- to access top QA expertise and work with specialists who have years of experience in testing and have a proven track record of successfully completing complex QA projects;
- to get full involvement in your project, which is not impossible with freelance QA engineers who may work on multiple projects simultaneously.

Types of Dedicated Testing Teams We Provide
Manual testing team
Manual testing is necessary for small and short-term projects. It verifies new functionality in existing products and identifies areas that can be automated in medium to large projects.
Test automation team
Automated software testing saves time and resources, speeds up release cycles, and reduces the risk of human error. It detects critical bugs, eliminating repetitive manual testing.
Web app testing team
Web app testing ensures that websites deliver a high-quality, bug-free experience on various browsers and devices. It verifies that the functionality of a web application meets the requirements as intended. Web testing includes checking that the website functions correctly, is easy to navigate for end-users, performs well, and so on.
Mobile app testing team
Mobile app testing ensures that native or hybrid mobile apps function correctly and without bugs on various Android and iOS devices. Testing on real devices may be costly for small organizations, while a cloud-based testing infrastructure allows to use a wide range of devices.
API testing team
API testing is a method of evaluating the functionality, reliability, performance, and security of an API by sending requests and observing the responses. It allows teams such as developer operations, quality assurance, and development to begin testing the core functionality of an application before the user interface is completed, enabling the early identification and resolution of errors and weaknesses in the build and avoiding costly and time-consuming fixes later in the development process.
IoT testing team
IoT device testing is crucial to ensure the secure transmission of sensitive information wirelessly before launch. IoT testing detects and fixes defects, ensuring the scalability, modularity, connectivity, and security of the final product.
ERP testing team
ERP testing during different stages of implementation can prevent unexpected issues like system crashes during go-live. It also minimizes the number of bugs found post-implementation. Once a defect is resolved in the software, beta testing is performed on the updated version. This allows for gathering user feedback and improving the application's overall user experience.
CRM testing team
CRM testing is essential before and after the custom software is installed, updated, or upgraded. Proper testing ensures that every component of the system works, and departmental workflow integrations are synchronized. This ultimately leads to a seamless internal experience.Check out how our manual and automated testing
