Releasing the final version into production doesn't end QA processes
The final version of the project is deployed into production, you’re already popping a bottle of celebratory champagne, and release your brand new product into the end-users’ wilderness. The last thing you’d expect is some nasty issues ruining your perfect project. Unfortunately, that happens more often than you think and you need to be prepared for it. How? By ongoing support and maintenance of course!
When a new version with the fixes becomes necessary, all you need is a good Quality Assurance team. Their role is extremely important since they need to re-create these issues on their environments to be able to not only confirm that this is indeed a defect (not a wrong usage of the product) but also provide the developers with as much indispensable information as possible to quickly fix the problem. But that’s just the beginning...
Our QA engineers ensure top quality and performance of your product under any circumstances.
All activities related to customer changes and new issues occurring after the production phase.
Regular checkups of performance, security, and compatibility, so any defect could be picked up early on.
Thorough checks of a particular defect after it has been fixed to ensure the success of corrective actions.
Testing on real devices
Testing apps on actual devices, not emulators to be sure that the product will work properly for every user, even after updates.
Assurance that the same issue will not occur in the future after becoming a part of regression tests.
In this phase, QA engineers play the most important role – they determine that a certain problem actually does exist. Once the QA support receives an updated version with fixes, they re-test them to make sure that the bug is dead and gone. Finally, they run regression tests to check if other critical functionalities are still working perfectly. All these activities must be done very quickly, under time pressure, but with the utmost care.
As you can see, Quality Assurance maintenance is a really responsible and demanding position. Our QA engineers on a daily basis resolve a variety of cases. Firstly, they check whether an error was user-inflicted or maybe it was the software’s fault. In order to do that, they need to collect detailed feedback (what were the exact data, circumstances or actions that led to the problem occurring).
When QA support is 100% sure that the product is faulty, they cooperate with developers to fix it and re-test it as soon as possible. Without a quick response, you risk being swamped with negative comments of angry users who download and use the faulty version. Ongoing maintenance allows you to successfully fix any problems before they escalate and check areas exposed to constant changes in the code. Finally, the Quality Assurance team documents all specific cases in regression tests to future-proof your product from such problems.
