    Full-cycle QA including Mobile, Web automated testing for HealthCare app

    3 people from DeviQA developed a complex automation test ecosystem for Web and Mobile applications. Daily tests run on Jenkins CI allowed to detect the most of critical and major issues. Some of the achievements:
    - 150+ auto tests for the Web application using Ruby and Selenium;
    - 150+ auto tests for testing native iOS Mobile application using Ruby and Appium;
    - Developed performance test&nbsp

    ;suite for the simulation actions with huge data using JMeter and integrated it into Jenkins CI;
    - Configured Jenkins to run all tests daily; status sending via email and into HipChat rooms;
    - Tests suite for Web was configured to run tests in parallel with multiple threads which allowed to reduce overal tests run in 4 times;
    - For the most critical areas of the Web application we created special tests for running on the most popular Web browsers using BrowserStack;
    - We implemented complex pipeline workflow which allows to run tests chain after each deployment;
    - For Mobile automation we created an additional job which allows to build a new version of the app using Xcode command line.

    WeHeartIt - Automated Tests Development

    We developed a really complex environment for automated tests running of the project. We were given a 64GB RAM dedicated server on which we have setup and run 15 Virtual Machines. There were 3 browsers running in parallel on each VM. In total, about 40-45 browsers were run in parallel at the same time.

    Tests were run on various browsers and different their versions. Multithreading allowed us to

    reduce time for a vast number of scenarios run and, as a result, the team was able to answer quicker a question “Can we deploy?” Certainly, we also created all the automated tests.

    It was one of the most superior test environment we have ever created.

    Xola - full-cycle quality assurance

    A team of 3 QA engeneers work on manual and automated testing of Xola apps more than 4 years.
    We developed test frameworks from scratch for main and additional apps. Every new functionality pass manual review. 500+ automated tests developed to verify as much as possible aspects of the product before deploying to prod.
    3500+ stories, bugs, improvements, features passed full-cycle

    testing.
    Automated tests integrated into Continuous Integration process and work on 9 slaves in parallel which allows us to significantly reduce the entire test suite run time.

    SoftNas - Full-cycle including automated testing

    A team of three from DeviQA was involved in full-cycle testing of SoftNas products. Just some of the activities on this project involved:

    - Performed functional, API and Automated testing

    - Created 1000+ auto-tests for application

    - Implemented methods that use VMware and Azure CLI tools into tests

    - Made tests cases review and code review

    - Integrated automated tests with

    complex structure of input variables in Jenkins CI

    - Maintained multiple parallel test flows on Jenkins CI

    - Worked with CIFS, NFS, ISCSI protocols on Linux and Windows OS

    SoftNAS benefited in the following ways:

    1. Ability to get test results faster

    2. Stable automated tests which clearly answer the question “Are we able to deploy?”

    3. Increased test suite coverage by more than 200 automated tests

    4. Significantly improved quality of the products

    Sprinklr - Full-cycle QA, including Automated Testing

    1000+ automated tests developed

    16 parallel threads configured to run these tests

    12 000 bugs reported

    10 000 + test cases developed

    60% more mainainable test suite vs competitors

    45% defects reported with status major 

    DeviQA has designed the architecture of the test framework from scratch and developed more than 1000 auto-tests. We built a test suite which

    runs auto-tests using 16 threads on multiple machines. Doing this enabled the results to be received much more quickly.

    A team of seven people performed full cycle testing of the project. Our expertise and solutions enabled us to significantly improve the quality of the product. More than 12 000 bugs were found and reported and more than 10 000 test cases were designed.

    Automated tests were integrated into Continuous Integration process, which enabled team to detect and solve issues ASAP.

    Feedback summary: 

    All three apps are displaying record-strong performance, evidenced by nearly unanimously positive user reviews. Organize and dedicated, DeviQA communicates consistently over a time difference and on-boards new resources quickly to maintain productivity. Customers can expect a knowledgeable partner.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I’m the mobile applications manager at a mobile location data company.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire DeviQA?

    We needed a partner to manage and do quality testing for our iOS and Android applications. They would also have to fix bugs and improve features reported by our users.

    What were your goals for this project?

    We wanted to maintain our apps’ full functionalities and ensure they complied with Twitter, Apple, and Google’s terms of use.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    I was not directly involved in the decision-making process. DeviQA was already working with us prior to me starting this role.

    Describe the project in detail.

    Devi QA works with three of our applications, two of which are for iOS and Android while the third is only for Android. They're responsible for quality testing release candidates for all of the applications and working alongside our developers to troubleshoot and resolve issues. The team also manages the App and Play Store reviews and assists in responding to user complaints.

    What was the team composition?

    We work with a team of QA testers, one of whom focuses on iOS while the other focuses on Android.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

    All of our applications are functioning at the best level I’ve seen since starting my role. We continue to hear positive feedback from users about the apps’ stability and long-time usability. The apps have strong ratings in the App and Play stores thanks to DeviQA’s team.

    How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

    Despite the time difference, there hasn’t been any shortage of communication. Our developers and their QA team are in sync and able to schedule time easily to discuss and plan things. 

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Their work ethic and attention to detail are outstanding. The two resources on our team have great knowledge of our applications and processes and have significantly improved our workflow and productivity. Though one of them joined the team recently, they’ve stepped up quickly and displayed an ability to thoroughly integrate themselves.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    No specific improvements are needed. Everything has been top notch and exceeded all expectations.

    The Review
    Feedback summary: 

    Having DeviQA on board has resulted in finding more defects before deploying features to customers, boosting the end product’s overall quality. Their team is not only supportive but also easy to scale as needed. Efficient communication and punctuality are some highlights of their work.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I’m the senior quality manager responsible for our flagship product, a video-based sales learning and readiness platform. I manage the quality of our web and mobile clients as well as the backend services.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire DeviQA?

    Our company is growing out of its startup phase. We’re signing larger clients and need to add features quickly to accommodate those client needs while maintaining the base level of quality that our initial clients have come to expect. So, we hired DeviQA to assist with testing.

    What were your goals for this project?

    Automation is the key factor in ensuring quality while delivering product features quickly and consistently. Our goal is to build a reliable set of automation regression tests across our mobile and web applications.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    I inherited this team when I came on board with the company several months ago and have been pleased with their performance since the beginning.

    Describe the project in detail.

    The project included the development of a test framework based on open source tools and open standards. I supplied all guidelines, but the team was responsible for all of the coding and maintenance of the automated tests. They currently maintain the framework, including integration into other tools, writing new tests, monitoring test executions, analyzing test failures, and updating outdated tests.

    What was the team composition?

    The team consists of three full-time automation engineers. I provide guidance and set priorities on tasks, which are divided among the team based on who has the best experience for each task. This makes managing the team very easy for me, and I’m able to deliver a concise report of accomplishments to our executive management.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

    The number of defects we find through the automation process before releasing to customers has been growing and we’re also able to spend more time writing comprehensive test plans and reducing the amount of manual testing required before each release.

    How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

    The workflow is very efficient and easy. We meet once a week for a status update and to discuss priorities. We communicate as needed throughout the week to discuss any issues and resolve problems blocking the team. There is a project manager available with whom I can discuss any problems with team members, but there haven’t been any. I’ve only needed to talk with him to add members to the team.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Their talent pool is great. Each individual has a lot of experience and exceeds my expectations. They’re also able to support each other to stay engaged and to keep learning. Also, ramping up the team as needed is very easy.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    I can't think of any.

    Feedback summary: 

    DeviQA allocates expert-level QA resources to ensure that code changes can function within a production environment. Their team attends standup meetings, adapts to new software, and conducts extensive testing. Complex platforms pass a lengthy verification process as a result of their efforts.

    BACKGROUND

    Introduce your business and what you do there.

    I’m the CTO of a marketing company.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with DeviQA?

    We’re building innovative software, so we need trusted resources with the skills to test what we develop.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    DeviQA provides senior-level QA resources to test our software. To ensure they perform the most thorough tests possible, they’re involved with our entire development cycle. First, their team attends our development kickoff meetings to gain an understanding of our current project. Then, they start building applicable test scenarios for each product. They also take an active role in our regression and smoke testing efforts.

    They’re available to test a variety of use cases whenever we’re deploying a new integration, a redesigned feature, or a bug fix. Their QA resources execute functional testing to make sure that all code changes are stable enough to function within a production environment. We use Jira and some internal automation tools to track each implementation.

    What is the team composition?

    They’ve assigned 2–3 QA people to our account.

    How did you come to work with DeviQA?

    They were referred to us by multiple colleagues. After an initial project with them, we realized that they’re a reliable firm. We’ve continued to work with them.

    How much have you invested with them?

    We’ve spent around $120,000–$150,000 thus far.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We hired them in June 2017, and the engagement is ongoing. We’ll likely expand their contract with us to include automatic testing services.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

    Each new software release has passed an intricate verification process. By looking at the bug reports listed in Jira, we can tell that they perform extensive testing.

    How did DeviQA perform from a project management standpoint?

    Their involvement with us consists of executing specific tasks. Therefore, they don’t require a lot of project management. However, we hold daily standup meetings with QA resources assigned to our projects. Those meetings consist of communicating outstanding issues and prioritizing bug fixes.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    They’re able to implement a quick onboarding process. Since they’re expert-level QA testers, we don’t have to spend a lot of time teaching them our process. They can understand new software quickly, and then just go to work. It’s incredible.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    I’d appreciate it if they provided more detailed progress reports. While they currently send frequent reports, more transparency would make things easier for us.

    Do you have any advice for potential customers?

    They’ve done an excellent job for us throughout the last two years, so I expect they’ll be able to help future clients in a similarly.

    Feedback summary: 

    The two resources from DeviQA’s team are excellent, performing tests with speed, accuracy, and skill, as demonstrated in the significant reduction in issues found after product releases. They communicate regularly and well, while always rising to any new challenge.

    BACKGROUND

    Introduce your business and what you do there.

    We’re a business services company that provides consultancy and software platform services to clients. One of our core products is a software solution aimed at protecting users from malicious content. I’m the global development manager, in charge of projects across the global company space.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with DeviQA?

    We didn’t have internal QA resources, specifically related to the software development lifecycle. We identified that as a significant risk, so we reached out to a number of companies to fill that position. DeviQA were the winners of the contract.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    They have a full-time engagement with us in the QA space of our project. We have two dedicated full-time resources handling testing on our software, which embodies two core sections: a web app and a mobile app, specifically for Android. They run a number of tests in the automated space—manual testing, unit testing, and some code review. They work remotely.

    What is the team composition?

    We project manage ourselves, so we have internal managers who interact with the two QAs from DeviQA. We also have direct communication with the owner of DeviQA and the senior partner, who we’ve met in person.

    How did you come to work with DeviQA?

    We initially engaged with them through the RentACoder.com platform. Our engagement grew to the point where we needed more resources than the platform could provide us, so we partnered with DeviQA on a direct engagement.

    How much have you invested with them?

    The total cost has been in excess of $170,000.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We started working with them in September 2014 and the collaboration is ongoing.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

    We have very detailed success criteria; one of the core measurements is the number of issues raised as a result of new product releases. We measured before and after, throughout the product lifecycle, and specifically looked at the number of issues raised pre- and post- DeviQA. We saw a significant drop in all these. One metric showed an 82% reduction in the number of issues raised following the engagement with them.

    How did DeviQA perform from a project management standpoint?

    We run agile scrum, and they conform to that. They have a good understanding of the platform methodology, and of the system we use to administer that.

    We’ve used a number of communication channels, the primary one being Atlassian Jira. We have daily scrum meetings performed through Zoom, the video conferencing platform, and interact directly with the developers using Slack.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    Nothing was too much for them, which struck us the most about DeviQA. We can throw any challenge at them, and they jump at it.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    Their English level is good, but I’d say respectfully that it could be improved a tiny bit, to make some communication easier. We don’t have any difficulties, but it would make it a bit easier for them to be a bit more conversant.

    Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

    Be sure to clearly define success metrics and ensure that you have the right communication channels.

    I’m the CTO of an educational gaming company. I oversee all aspects of technology and directly manage the platform engineering team.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire DeviQA?

    We were looking for continuous QA testing coverage including manual, black box, regression, and automated testing solutions.

    What were your goals for this project?

    Our company was growing quickly with a small staff, so we wanted to minimize software defects while continuing to move at a high velocity. Therefore, we needed QA expertise that could work seamlessly with our engineering team.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    We had two engineers who’d had great results with DeviQA at a previous company, so it was an easy choice.

    Describe the project in detail.

    A dedicated QA Engineer from DeviQA joined our daily standups and had full access to our Github, staging, and production environments. He learned our project requirements by interacting with product leads and engineers and would pick up tasks through our ticketing system. He would then deliver detailed bug reports, including steps to reproduce his fixes and video screen captures. Additionally, he maintained a suite of automated Selenium tests, which run daily, and reported any breaking tests on our staging server for remediation.

    What was the team composition?

    We worked with one full-time DeviQA resource.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

    While we worked with DeviQA, our product’s user base grew from zero to over 200,000, and we added a vast number of innovative features. We couldn’t have grown this quickly without the confidence in QA that DeviQA provided.

    How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

    The DeviQA resource worked seamlessly as a core member of our own team. He had a company email address and was available continuously on Slack during overlapping business hours (about 3 hours per day), which was plenty of time to coordinate activities. He worked during our early morning hours, so we could start the day with fresh QA feedback from the previous day's engineering work.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    The level of expertise and the responsiveness of communication were both excellent.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    To be honest, there aren’t any. DeviQA delivered everything we expected and more. We only decided to end the project when our company and budget allowed us to hire an in-house QA engineer. I couldn't have asked for a better experience working with an offshore company for staff augmentation.

    Feedback summary: 

    DeviQA automated numerous testing processes to reduce manual effort and resolved file scanning issues. While the build was projected to take 15 hours, they completed it in just three. The team was highly professional, kept detailed records, and maintained an open dialogue and synergistic workflow.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I am the QA manager at Solebit.  Our company provides identification and prevention of zero-day malware and unknown threats.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire DeviQA?

    DeviQA helped us build our SoleGATE™ cybersecurity platform. 

    What were your goals for this project?

    We needed to increase the quality of our product and develop automated tests to reduce manual testing work

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    We found DeviQA through a recommendation and hired them after an interview process.

    Describe the project in detail.

    SoleGATE™ is a revolutionary cyber protection software platform that provides comprehensive coverage for advanced cyber attacks against organizations in real-time. Using evasion-proof, signature-less, patented technology, it instantly detects any malicious code and blocks it conclusively. No sandboxing is necessary.

    DeviQA created complex and detailed automated scenarios for testing REST APIs using a Faraday library. They built a software development kit application that works on many different machines, including Azure, Google cloud, Docker, and both privileged and unprivileged LXC containers. They created complex methods for these integrations using SSH and SFTP connections. They added different scenarios for Microsoft Azure and Mac.

    What was the team composition?

    We started with one QA engineer from DeviQA.  After a while, we increased the size of their team by adding two more senior QA engineers.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

    DeviQA did an excellent job, and I highly recommend them. They completed the entire scope of work we assigned and reduced the build’s duration from 15 to just three hours. Setting up automation jobs on TeamСity based on the scheduler delivers precise and straightforward reports.

    Using parallel processes for file uploading, they resolved problems with scanning large amounts of data. The team created numerous automated tests for the application’s common functionality for settings related to SMPT services, sending emails, and changes in the database. 

    How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

    DeviQA synchronized with our team every morning and opened new tasks in Jira. At any time of the day, our teams could contact each other about questions, issues, or problems.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    DeviQA offers a very professional level of service. They understand the material and can easily learn about and adapt to new technologies

    Through DeviQA’s involvement, the high-quality product has performed reliably and attracted positive customer feedback. The team’s commitment to excellence, consistent availability, and reasonable price point continue to drive success. 

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I'm the QA [quality assurance] manager for a midsize startup company involved in the fintech industry. We offer a unique, full-scale solution for paying suppliers. 

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire DeviQA?

    Originally, we hired one person from DeviQA to test the most basic version of our system. As our company became more successful and grew, we increased DeviQA’s involvement in testing the product.

    What were your goals for this project?

    DeviQA conducts ongoing testing of the system. Our company works in sprints, and DeviQA integrates fully with our team while performing testing for the system. 

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    They were selected by our CEO before I arrived at the company.

    Describe the project in detail.

    The project involves several different web platforms, which eventually integrate with each other to create a solution that allows companies to pay their suppliers. DeviQA handles the QA testing of our software.  

    What was the team composition?

    The team grew from one person to eight. Seven people act as manual testers, and one manages performance testing. 

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

    DeviQA has been a major part of our company's success. They help us deliver a high-quality product, evidenced by relatively few production bugs and customer complaints.

    How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

    The workflow is fairly efficient. Our main development center is in Israel, and the DeviQA team is in Ukraine. Still, we’ve been able to communicate consistently via Slack, and our collaboration has improved over time.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Their team members are committed and always try their best, sometimes staying later than required in order to finish testing items by the delivery deadline. I really appreciate their impressive level of dedication.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    I'm very pleased overall. DeviQA’s testers should improve their written English skills, which are understandable but could be better.

    Feedback summary: 

    The team’s efforts helped to ensure the delivery of the best possible product by the business. Moreover, DeviQA demonstrated accountability and structure through which they provide timely and high-quality solutions.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your organization.

    We are a mobile do-it-yourself platform application that allows small- to medium-sized businesses create mobile apps with relative ease. We sell our product to resale partners mostly, but we also have a direct channel aimed at smaller business applications.

    What is your position?

    I am the vice president of products.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What business challenge were you trying to address with DeviQA?

    We first started out as a bootstrap company, which means that we didn't raise a lot of seed-funding initially. We thus leveraged the outsourcing route as a competitive advantage to other app builders. We didn't have the technical skills ourselves so we needed to find a cost-effective solution to get the expertise we needed to actually develop our product.

    SOLUTION

    Please describe the scope of their involvement.

    DeviQA's services include time tracking, billing, payments, and things of this nature. We enlisted them to build their own quality assurance environment within our company. It was functional, but not as advanced as we'd have hoped for. We took it upon ourselves to build out a more advanced environment within which DeviQA could thrive.

    They engage exclusively in manual testing. They had a lot of suggestions and expertise concerning regression, unit-testing services, and providers which they'd used previously, but being a bootstrap company, we took it upon ourselves to build our own unit, integration, and functional testing. We rely on our own code for testing products, while DeviQA is responsible for manual user interface elements.

    We initially used only one of their testers and scaled out our team to four members at its peak. We have now settled on three. Outsourcing to DeviQA has saved us a lot of time and money and we consider it to be just as efficient as hiring in-house QA personnel.

    How did you come to work with DeviQA?

    We found their company through a freelancer site called oDesk at the time, but now it's called Upwork. We went through a couple of interviews with them and got the impression that DeviQA would know how to form a proper quality assurance structure within our organization. We've worked with them ever since.

    We considered several other candidates. We decided to choose DeviQA because they seemed to know their stuff, and had a vast amount of knowledge in comparison to the other agencies, with regards to building out a QA system, general release, and deployment processes.

    Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

    The total cost of their services so far has been at least $500,000 over a three-year period.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    Our relationship is ongoing.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

    In terms of quantitative data, it would be hard to offer any insight, because this has to do with product improvements done by our team as much as the job done by DeviQA. Working with them has made a huge impact on our company in terms of enabling us to ship the best possible product to our customers.

    How did DeviQA perform from a project management standpoint?

    Delivery time has been up to par and well aligned with our expectations. DeviQA is very structured and responsive. Tasks get done quickly and they deliver everything that we ask of them.

    We use Jira in conjunction with Confluence and HipChat for project tracking. The tools were chosen by our company as a general improvement measure as we grew. They’ve been able to use all requested tools very successfully.

    What distinguishes DeviQA from other providers?

    It's hard to name elements which are specifically unique to DeviQA in comparison to another quality assurance teams. They're very diligent, meticulous, and concentrated, which in itself probably sets them apart from other people providing the same service. They do their job incredibly well.
