Are Outsourced QA Testing Services Right for Your Project?

QA Makes All the Time, Money and Effort Worth It

If your company develops software, either for internal use or to sell as a product, you need it to be of the best possible quality. Otherwise, you risk wasting valuable time, money, and resources on developing something that your employees won’t use or that customers won’t buy. Your future revenue, profitability, efficiency, or reputation could be on the line. That’s why it’s smart to make sure your quality assurance (QA) testing process is highly effective.

You may have the resources in-house to perform QA testing. If so, great. But if you don’t have staff available to take on this task — or if you need to add workers to make sure it’s completed timely and correctly — you should consider using outsourced QA testing services. Here we’ll explain what outsourced QA testing services are and how to know whether they’re right for your next project.

What Are Outsourced QA Testing Services?

Outsourced QA testing services are QA testing services provided by a third-party vendor. The service is delivered by experts in the field working for a company that sends them to your company for a predictable fee. These contractors may work onsite alongside your employees or they may work separately and keep in close contact using communication software. You can hire them long-term to supplement your internal resources, or temporarily for a specific need. 

Are Outsourced QA Testing Services Right for My Company?

Ask yourself the following questions when considering outsourced QA testing services. If you answer “yes” to one or more, consider taking the next step, which is finding a reliable provider like BairesDev.

Do You Want to Reduce Costs?

If the cost of keeping in-house testers is becoming prohibitive, outsourcing them may be the answer. By using an outsourcing model you save in several important ways:

  • By reducing the number of employees you need, you save on salaries, benefits, and overhead costs like additional office space and a larger HR team.

  • Outsourcing vendors provide competent professionals appropriate for your project, so you don’t have to spend time and money searching for the perfect new team member. 
  • Because outsourced professionals already know how to do the work, you don’t have to spend time and money training them. 
  • You can save money you would have otherwise spent on specialized testing tools, as well as future upgrades, and the time you would have spent researching which ones would be right for your business. 
  • By developing quality products, you will retain the customers you have, which comes at a far lesser cost than attracting new ones. 

Do You Need Experienced Professionals?

When you work with an outsourcing vendor, you get access to the top QA testers. They are experienced and savvy about the latest technologies and techniques, so you know they are ready to deliver results the moment they join your team. Here are a few reasons why experience counts: 

  • Greater objectivity. Since they won’t take part in the software development, the outsourced QA testers will use an unbiased approach to ensure no problem in your software is left unaddressed. 
  • Increased efficiency. Your new team members will meet all your deadlines, knowing that their reputation, and that of the outsourcing company they work for, is on the line.
  • Extensive knowledge. Because QA testing is all these professionals do, they take the time to stay on top of the latest technologies and techniques, meaning you’re always getting the benefit of the latest processes and best practices.
  • Broad experience. Outsourced QA testers may have experience in a particular type of software. For example, say your company is developing an e-commerce app in-house but you don’t have testers with e-commerce experience. An outsourced person or team may have just the experience you’re looking for. 

Do You Want to Increase Efficiency?

Additionally, these workers will help you complete your projects with greater speed and efficiency. So, you can reduce time-to-market and allow your in-house staff to focus on more high-level, revenue-generating activities. 

Outsourced QA professionals may use QA automation to complete the process more efficiently. This type of testing requires specialized tools and expertise to get the maximum benefits. So, if you don’t have employees with the proper skills and knowledge, outsourcing may be the perfect solution. 

Do You Want Greater Flexibility?

Using outsourced QA testing services enables you to remain flexible in your planning, especially in the following situations:

  • You’re working on multiple projects. Maybe some of them require skills that none of your in-house employees have. You can outsource just the right people to work on those specific assignments. 
  • You have unpredictable needs. Hiring a great QA tester only to have nothing for them to work on for long periods is a waste of your money and their time and talents. With outsourced QA testing services, you can keep a core group on staff and outsource the rest when the workload changes. 
  • You need to ramp up quickly. If your company is enjoying rapid success, congratulations! Now you need to work to keep stakeholders happy. Scrambling to hire may result in hiring mistakes, so using outsourced services, either temporarily or as a permanent solution, is a smart move.
