Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?
QA Madness' code was not brittle at all, and we didn't have a need to rewrite anything. We made a few little tweaks in terms of threshold testing, after which everything was ready to go.
The test script made by QA Madness worked to our exact specifications, showing us how many concurrent transactions we could handle. We could then determine if that number was sufficient, or whether we needed to resize the servers. It was valuable information, and the delivery was on time and within budget. All in all, I had a good experience with QA Madness. I would go to them again in a heartbeat.
How did QA Madness perform from a project management standpoint?
Everything worked as it should, and our communication was fantastic. I imagined that there would be some delays because of our time zone differences, but someone at QA Madness was burning the midnight oil. I was able to email them in the morning on West Coast time and receive responses in real time.
There was no need to use project management software. We use GitHub internally, but not with QA Madness. They had access to our development server, ran the scripts, got the results, and turned the work over to us.
What did you find most impressive about QA Madness?
I was impressed with QA Madness' communication. I have done offshore work in the past with Indian, Russian, and Ukrainian companies. Their command of the English language was very good, as well as their communication skills and timeliness. Oftentimes, we ran into issues along those lines, but not with this project.
Are there any areas QA Madness could improve?
