In order to evaluate system readiness and compliance with specified business objectives and requirements, QATestLab provides the services of acceptance testing. We check whether software satisfies all requirement specifications, customer’s expectations and standards. By verifying acceptability, we make sure that the system is ready to market.
We evaluate system acceptability in four different forms - user acceptance testing, business acceptance testing, alpha testing / internal acceptance testing and beta testing.
As a result of acceptance testing customers get conclusions if a software is acceptable for delivery, requires obligatory modifications or unacceptable.
Having analyzed project documentation, customers’ requirements, business goals and end users’ needs, we start to perform acceptance testing. Usually, we conduct tests after successful system testing but it depends on development methodology and project specifics.
Based on acceptance criteria, we develop acceptance test plan that we include into general test plan. We perform testing activities oriented to written test documentation approved by the customer.
Due to close collaboration and constant communication with project stakeholders and development team, we have a proper understanding and clear vision of how final product should operate and what purposes to fulfill.
By involving customers and domain experts in the stage of test cases creation, we avoid too technical details of certain components implementation in order to make acceptance tests easily comprehensible for customers.
We design test cases from the perspective of end-user and perform acceptance testing using real world scenarios. Besides, we do not forget to include the verification of untypical use cases to detect and prevent potential software malfunction. By conducting acceptance tests, we mind also usability issues.
Being a final step before product release, acceptance testing is crucial. Based on our objective evaluation, we never recommend for release a software that still has some issues unsolved. We care about our customers’ reputation that reflects our own one.
