Good software development isn’t totally about the latest and greatest technologies or programming languages. For outsourcing and nearshoring providers and their clients, it’s about creating products and solutions that fully meet the end-user requirements and expectations for mutual success. Quality assurance testing (QA) helps ensure this.
With our nearshore QA services, Jalasoft strives to not only design and develop the most high-quality software products possible but also offers extensive and customizable quality assurance and automation testing - for both Jalasoft-developed products and those developed by other companies.
Why Do Companies Choose Nearshoring for Quality Assurance?
The fast pace of technological innovation paired with the increasingly interconnected business world continues driving businesses to nearshoring providers as their go-to choice for quality assurance testing. This practice offers companies many advantages as well.
Choosing to work with a nearshoring partner like Jalasoft facilitates smoother communication abilities thanks to minimal time zone differences and both linguistic and cultural similarities. This not only creates a more synchronous working environment but helps facilitate real-time collaboration between teams. Nearshoring also offers hiring companies a cost-savings compared to traditional in-house hiring and onshoring.
The practice of working with a nearshore QA company makes sense for a variety of different business and technology types. Various nearshoring providers utilize different testing methodologies, including Total Quality Management, Failure Testing, Process and Product Quality Assurance, and more, to fit the specific needs of the client.
The experts at Jalasoft meld proficiency with adaptability by offering both manual and automated QA testing carefully and tactically crafted to fit the goals and scope of each and every project.
The Key Aspects of a Nearshore QA Partner
Before ever interviewing or starting the hiring process for a nearshore QA testing provider, hiring companies must have a solid grasp of what makes a good nearshoring partner. By taking the time to complete their own due diligence, companies make more informed decisions that lead to enhanced testing outcomes and the delivery of high-quality software solutions.
Cultural Compatibility and Timezone Collaboration
Not only is it important to find a nearshoring provider with years of experience in the field, but companies must strive to find providers with the right expertise and experience to fit their specific needs. The nuanced understanding and deep level of knowledge these providers bring to the table are crucial aspects of navigating complex projects and ensuring their quality through testing.
A high level of expertise helps in both the identification and rectification of bugs and errors as well as through the offering of innovative solutions to further enhance product quality. A nearshore QA team’s seasoned perspective helps foresee potential issues and enhance proactive measures to save companies time and resources while integrating flawlessly with an internal team.
The experts at Jalasoft have over 20 years of experience in software development and quality assurance testing, with over 500 engineers specializing specifically in Manual and test automation with custom-fit strategies.
Effective communication is a linchpin of successful collaboration between a company and a nearshore QA partner. Clear, regular communication ensures the clear delineation of project objectives with a mutual level of understanding amongst all team members, both in-house and externally.
When looking for the right nearshore QA testing partner, companies should make sure to get an understanding of each potential company’s strategy for communication, including tools and apps, meeting schedules, and how they promote a synergistic environment between internal and external teams. The more transparent the communication between teams, the better the partnership and the resulting products.
Jalasoft strives to act as a versatile partner in QA testing by taking a holistic approach to projects and testing. By taking the time to not only understand the goals and problems of a product but also the motivations behind it and the client’s needs, the Jalasoft team delivers high-quality results with reduced test cycle times.
Another quality of a good nearshore QA partner is diversity in testing methodologies. A partner adept in various testing methods offers companies a variety of ways to scrutinize a project from multiple angles, helping to identify potential issues while enhancing the overall quality. Examples of the various types of testing include manual testing for a more detail-oriented and personalized approach, swift automated testing, functional testing, security testing, white-box, black-box, exploratory, and more.
Jalasoft strives to offer clients a wide variety of options for their testing needs based on each unique project and requirements, including all the previously mentioned methods and more. The team also offers custom-fit strategies for a totally custom testing method.
Unlike offshoring working with a nearshoring QA service provider allows companies to work in real time with their outsourced testing company. Instead of difficulties arranging meetings or dealing with delayed communication, nearshoring creates the ability for teams to work together directly in the same or near time zone.
The closer proximity of a nearshoring provider also means a better cultural fit between the outsourced and in-house teams. This translates into further improved communication and more similar working environments for an easier, more productive working relationship.
As one of the top nearshoring providers to the United States (and beyond), Jalasoft teams work out of Latin America with a headquarters in Cochabamba, Bolivia. This closeness to North America helps teams collaborate and work together more productively.
