QAWorks was formerly NMQA's web and mobile testing practise. NMQA was established in April 2000 as a technical testing consultancy and over the years has enjoyed fantastic success with customers including Barclays, HSBC, BBC, BSkyB, Yahoo!, TUI and Vodafone. In 2012 the board of NMQA believed further success could be leveraged if the business was re-organised into two unique companies with a specific focus and purpose.
Since QAWorks was launched as a standalone company we have seen interest levels in our services rocket past those experienced when we were simply a department of NMQA.
Test Lab Vs Onsite
You have space for us in your office and you want to fully embrace agile scrum techniques, with testers sat within your teams. You have a backlog of test scenarios that need to be automated and you want to outsource this work. For security reasons everyone has to be sat within your four walls. You're based in some remote location and it doesn't make sense for a supplier to work there. Whatever your situation, we have seen it all and accommodated it all. This is why we've established a QAWorks test lab as well as offering on-site services.
Research and Development
Our business model has always incorporated an R&D centre. During the NMQA years we developed a suite of test and defect management tools under the collective name of 'QABook', which is perfect for the traditional testing world. Now, with QAWorks, our focus is on behaviour driven development (BDD) methods so we have adapted QABook to work with sprints and feature files. On top of this we are always looking to give back to the open source world by creating useful gems, jars and plugins, as without the open source community we may not be here today.
The cloud enables IT organizations to anticipate and respond to the changing needs of the business more quickly and efficiently than ever before. At QAWorks, we are cloud enabling our infrastructure to encapsulate our Quality IP allowing us to access our full suite of SaaS test tools and pre-configured compatibility and performance testing environments from anywhere.
