"Q/A Testing Services - Test Staffing"Nearly a decade ago Questcon Technologies was acquired by and integrated with Howard Systems International. The result has been a case study in effective expansion and clear direction---the combination of HSI’s talent acquisition abilities and Questcon’s methodologies, proven processes and depth of QA & testing expertise created a quality-focused organization more powerful than the sum of the parts. Questcon’s subject matter experts were nationally recognized as thought leaders in the industry. They had a broad portfolio of QA & testing solutions but lacked the size and investment ability to meet the demands of a national client base. HSI brought management oversight and guidance, financial resources and a growth-oriented business plan to the merger. We are now at the top of the quality assurance pyramid. We are completely “Client Focused—Solution Driven”.
Test Staffing: Fluctuations in the workload, a shortage of new skills or expertise, inefficient processes or just not enough staff to get the job done call for additional skilled resources to meet the priorities placed on your QA department. HSI and Questcon working as an integrated service provider has the recruiting power, hands-on experience and subject matter expertise to address the peaks and valleys of your QA & testing resource needs. Our roots are in staffing. No other company delivers a quality-focused talent acquisition solution that matches ours.
Questcon’s approach for assuring software quality is founded on the fact that the highest return on a company’s software investment is achieved when defects are identified and corrected at the earliest point in the SDLC. Our QuestAssuredTM methodology strives for total quality from Day One in the software development process. We know the impact of errors, the costs of response time degradation and system crashes and the downside impact these can have on your customers and users. That’s why we approach every engagement with the goal of Zero Defects.
Our objective called for us to support a very large QA & Testing effort by bringing on 60 outside consultants in a four week timeframe. Throughout the engagement Howard Systems worked hand in hand with Aetna project managers to get the right people into the jobs in the right timeframe
