Roxio is an American software company, specializing in consumer digital media products (it was acquired by Corel in February 2012). Its product line includes products for the creation of digital media projects, media conversion software, and content distribution systems. They believe that QA is an integral and vital part of product development allowing building quality products. So they were looking for an extended testing team that can be involved in the product right from the first build verifying and validating it in various conditions.
The management of the company chose Odessa, Ukraine as the location of a QA team for their products selecting between many IT companies in Odessa including SoftTechnics. The main goal was the quick start of the project (within a month), which demandedhigh professionalism of QA team, and ability to quickly learn new products from Roxio.
SoftTechnics QA team presented an efficient Quality Assurance strategy, provided proven testing methodologies and QA practices, showed the experience in implementing and auditing projects across different verticals which made Roxio choose our company for their QA needs. The mature QA team with experience in sphere of cross-platform mobile developmentwas built in needed terms, its members went deep into the heart of the matter very fast and got up to speed in short terms, producing remarkable results in increasing general quality of the product. Currently QA team includes 1 senior, and 2 middle testing engineers, providing manual testing using test plans/test cases. The testing and product audit is done across the whole product lifecycle with the most test cases during the release time, the services provided include
- Functional testing
