How we Solved these problems…
- Detailed study of requirements
This involved a thorough analysis of the requirements gathered from all the stakeholders. The aim was to ensure that all the necessary information was understood and taken into account while developing the software. A detailed study helped us to identify the goals, objectives, scope, and constraints of the project.
- Testing of new functionality at all stages of development
This involved the testing of new functionality as it was developed. This ensured that any bugs or errors were detected and corrected before they caused further issues. Testing was typically carried out in various environments, including development, staging, and production.
- Coverage of all functionality with automation and manual tests
Automation testing helped automate repetitive and time-consuming testing tasks. Manual testing involved running tests manually to identify and report issues. By leveraging both approaches, we ensured that all functionality was thoroughly tested and validated.
- Periodic execution of test scenarios
Regular execution of test scenarios helped to ensure that the software remained stable and reliable. It also helped to identify any issues that may have been introduced as a result of changes made to the software.
- Timely detection of bugs
Bugs were detected and reported as soon as they were identified. This helped to ensure that they were corrected before they caused any serious issues.
- Improvement of processes to prevent their occurrence in the future
The aim was to identify and address the root cause of all issues, and to implement changes to prevent similar issues from occurring in the future. This involved changes to the development process, testing methodologies, and the use of new tools or technologies.
Communication with Solvd was excellent throughout the project. Their team was always available to answer questions, address concerns, and provide updates, which made it easy for us to stay informed and up-to-date on the project’s progress. Overall, Solvd is a truly outstanding partner, and I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone looking for a reliable and high-quality software engineering and quality assurance company.
