What was the scope of their involvement?
We hired QA knowledge for knowledge sharing related to QA. During our mutually beneficial partnership, we worked on multiple external projects. Their team supports us significantly with QA-oriented tasks. They helped us initiate the project, including estimations, finalizing the budget, and measuring the number of hours that applied exactly to each part of the job.
QA Madness provides expertise in key domain areas we request, including the Magento CMS platform we use. To a degree, they’ve offered knowledge of additional frameworks. Along with design and execution, they're also involved in the planning phase.
We build products together from scratch, starting from design and development through execution and release. During the initial planning stages, we analyze the requirements and documentation. We go through a set system to improve integrations with third-party systems.
When any new clients join us, we take a module-based approach to consider which extensions to use for Magento functionalities. QA Madness supports the entire cycle, including UAT scenarios, qualifications, and technical advice for our clients.
What is the team composition?
We started with a team of 2–3. During a peak period, we worked with seven people from QA Madness.
Whenever we request help, they provide whatever number of resources we need. All of the teammates are of high quality, ranging from mid- to senior level. They've never assigned us junior-level resources.
How did you come to work with QA Madness?
One firm that split into two companies, one of which was QA Madness. We worked with the original, larger business, so we had a long-term partnership and personal contacts. I knew the director through a mutual contact, so I reached out to ask them to help us with our projects.
How much have you invested with them?
We spend $10,000-$15,000 per month.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in January 2017, and the work is ongoing.
