As IT has become more critical to business performance, the role of Independent Software Testing services has become increasingly important and even strategic in current market landscape. The independent software testing service industry is growing, with many opportunities in North America and EMEA, as well as in growing markets like APAC. Cashing in on this opportunity is Noida based QA InfoTech, which specializes in creating and innovating QA / Testing solutions to challenging technical projects by using a range of customized service models which are aligned to client’s needs and goals. Established in 2003, QA InfoTech has grown leaps and bounds with five QA Centers of Excellence. Today, QA InfoTech, is a $10 million company (estimated FY 2009-10 revenues) and among a handful of players in this niche and growing industry.

“In late ‘90s, Testing was considered as a secondary job. But I enjoyed it because it allowed me to see the bigger picture, an end-to-end idea of the overall system, a greater sense of ownership, and more interaction with people across the development chain including customers,” says Mukesh Sharma, Founder and CEO of the company talking about the evolution of the company.

The testing industry is estimated at $13 billion worldwide.QA InfoTech is one of the dominant players in this industry along with other renowned players like Mindtree, Virtusa, and Applabs. Mukesh strongly believes that the success of the company depends on the level of accuracy in the results, followed by the capacity to detect early and the costs. Hence the business approach is guided by transparency and fairness in policies, processes and practices. The processes through which QA InfoTech transacts business comply with internationally recognized quality standard such as ISO 9001:2008. QA InfoTech is ranked 62nd among the Top 100 list at India’s Best Companies to Work For 2010 survey released recently.

QA InfoTech is strong in verticals like Publishing, Telecom/Mobile, Finance and Healthcare and offers a wing to wing coverage from functional testing to Localization testing, Automation frameworks, Performance testing, Security testing, Usability testing and Mobile testing. QA InfoTech, with its specialized competency and state of the art lab at Noida helps its client in Telecom/Mobile domain with specialized services for testing mobile hardware, software and application. The lab supports exhaustive field testing covering areas like call performance, signal strength monitoring and battery testing.

The primary advantage that the company has is its knowledge domain and expertise. While testing, Mukesh believes that it is important to be able to understand the customer interests and needs and the kind of customers that the product is going to serve. At QA InfoTech, essentially a tester is expected to serve as a quality gatekeeper for our customer before the product is released. “The value that we add to quality assurance comes from our domain expertise; the kind of tools that we use for testing - from open source and off the shelf tools created from test automation framework and processes; and performance testing,” adds Mukesh.
