Reasons to outsource QA and software testing
Outsourcing frees you from recruiting, hiring, training, and maintaining your workforce. You can also change the number of employees in your QA team with minimal notice. Moreover, outsourcing from offshore countries may cost 2-3 times lower than using the services of your local providers.
Reduced management effort
You may outsource software testing services while your core employees work on your product development. This way, you give up the test planning and execution and defect assessment meetings. Also, you decrease the time to market since your teams do not have to multitask, thus being more productive.
Access to talent
A software testing services company specializing in quality assurance has all the necessary resources to provide you with experienced testers whose knowledge is tailored to your project. They usually have access to the latest tools, a variety of devices, testing platforms, and cloud infrastructures to pick from.

Frequently asked questions
What is software testing?
Software testing is a method to ensure the developed software product matches the client’s requirements and operates steadily. It involves examining the product’s parts and features, executing them, and comparing the obtained result with the expected one. In the process of software testing, defects, bugs, performance gaps, and missing requirements are detected and transferred to the development team to be fixed.
Through testing, you can verify the digital product’s error-free performance, user data storage and management security, device compatibility, and more. These increase the product’s value, improve your reputation as a provider, and allow you to avoid post-development rework, thus saving time and money.
How to choose a reliable QA and testing services company?
A quality assurance specialist can assess and estimate risks of development defect occurrence at the early stage of development and create a plan to mitigate those risks. Therefore, a professional QA team should request a lot of information about your business, project, and related documentation to find a relevant solution.
You might also want to check other clients’ reviews before contracting a company to see their previous experience and evaluate their approach to communication. Even if you’re looking for a specific service type, like mobile testing, it’s a good idea to check what else they provide. You can contact them for a broader range of services later and save time searching.
How much does software testing cost?
Generally, engineering test services cost about 15-40% of the total project development price. The cost of software testing varies depending on whether you’re developing a product from scratch or modifying an existing application, the number of testers, their rate, and what part of the development process they step in.
Thus, a simple mobile app usually requires 2-5 testers, depending on the timeframe and what you need to test. The average hourly rate of a software tester ranges between $40 in Eastern Europe and $100 and higher in the USA.
It is worth noting that the early QA team engagement helps to prevent expensive post-launch errors since they are often predicted at the planning stage or detected soon after being made. Also, the reputation losses from a buggy application tend to cost much more than timely testing services.
What types of software testing exist?
All software testing types can be broken down into four main categories:
- Functional testing determines whether software functions according to requirements;
- Non-functional testing checks how well software components work together and under different conditions;
- Change-related testing ensures that previously found errors were fixed and there are no new errors;
- Testing by knowledge of the system (box testing) is used for all-encompassing bug search both in behavioral testing and code review.
Functional testing type includes a range of testing techniques:
- Unit testing
- Integration testing
- System testing
- Sanity testing
- Smoke testing
- Interface testing
- Regression testing Beta/Acceptance testing
Non-functional testing types involve several parameters such as UI/UX, security, installation, configuration, compatibility, reliability, localization, and performance testing. Performance testing checks the software performance under the expected load. In its turn, this testing type includes the following techniques:
- Load testing
- Stability testing
- Stress testing
- Volume testing
- Scalability testing
What is the difference between manual and automation testing?
Manual and automation testing differ by who executes the tests. In manual testing, a human tester writes and executes tests one by one to catch bugs and writes them down into a report. In automated testing, a tester uses pre-written scripts, tools, and software.
Each method has its advantages and disadvantages. Thus, manual testing is time-consuming and is considered less precise due to the high risk of human error. Therefore, it is suitable for non-repetitive test cases where human observation is necessary, such as user-friendliness testing or customer experience evaluation.
Automated testing is faster and more reliable than QA manual software testing services, especially when test cases are run repeatedly over a long period. This method is preferred for regression, performance, and load testing.
