Quality Assurance & Software Testing

As an integral part of the SPG team, our QA specialists bring your ideas to life.

Quality Assurance (QA) is an integral part of the software development process. It is the process of ensuring that a software product meets the required level of quality.

Quality Assurance is achieved through the implementation of a variety of testing methods, including Software Testing. Software Testing is the process of evaluating a software product to ensure that it meets the specified requirements and works as intended. QA professionals are responsible for creating and implementing a comprehensive testing strategy that includes both manual and automated testing methods.

This ensures that all aspects of the software product are thoroughly tested and any defects are identified and addressed before the product is released to the public. QA also play a vital role in making sure that the software development process is followed by company’s standard and adherence to industry best practices, which in turn helps to improve the overall quality of the software product.

Additionally, QA professionals work closely with the development team to identify and resolve any issues that may arise during the development process. This helps to ensure that the final product is of the highest quality and meets the needs of the end-users. Ultimately, the role of Quality Assurance in the software development process is to identify and eliminate defects in the software product before it is released, which helps to improve the overall user experience and increases the chances of success for the software product.

Our Approach To Testing

We’re a part of the project from the very beginning

From the start of the development process, we are actively involved in every phase of the SDLC. In this way, we are able to avoid defects and significantly decrease maintenance costs. After all, the later an error is found, the more expensive its solution will be.



By identifying your project’s key features, we are able to set up activities that are required to meet your business goals and objectives. We also team up with the development and design teams and act as analysts in the early stages of the project. This enables us to effectively track the testing process (with the help of reliable metrics) and provide stakeholders with the product’s quality status at any moment that it is requested.



Using test design techniques, we are able to transform test conditions into prioritised test cases, test scenarios and eventually test procedures. We also prepare the testing data and environment, and make sure that project preconditions are met according to your expectations.

To keep everyone on the same page, we collaborate directly with company stakeholders, throughout your product's development. 



Without a doubt, the test summary report is the single most important artefact of the test completion phase. As part of the test artefacts handover, however, our engineers also deliver all the necessary work products and inform IT and Support teams of any known or accepted defects. In addition, we document regression test sets (be they automated or manual) to easily hand them over to your future maintenance crews.

Manual QA and Automated Testing

Software Planet Group provide both manual QA and automated testing services. As the name suggests, manual testing involves testing software products as a human, without the use of automated tools. This approach relies on a software tester that carries out a set of predefined test scenarios and identifies potential issues in the software. This is a comprehensive approach that enables testers to provide detailed feedback on the software’s functionality and user experience. It also provides a more nuanced understanding of the product’s limitations, which can be critical for improving the final solution.

Automated testing, on the other hand, entails utilising a variety of software tools to fully automate the testing process. The approach involves writing scripts that are able to run a series of tests automatically, with the goal of saving time and money. In addition to being typically faster, automated testing may also help to identify problems that can be difficult to spot through manual testing, including bottlenecks and security vulnerabilities. It is also a highly flexible option, as it enables tests to be easily modified and updated, and can be used for a wide variety of testing types, such as functional, performance and regression testing. Finally, automated testing may be repeated multiple times to ensure that any changes that are made to the software product do not break existing functionality. This makes it an excellent approach for software testing.

Basic Methods in Software Testing

SPG provide a range of testing services that employ a number of software testing methodologies. Outlined below are some of the most common types of software testing:


Black Box Testing

Black box testing is a popular testing technique that involves testing the software product without any knowledge of its internal workings. The approach is primarily focused on the software's functionality and ensuring that it meets the specified requirements. Here, the tester provides inputs to the software and evaluates the outputs against expected results. Black box testing is ideal for testing software products with user interfaces and can be used to test the software's compatibility, functionality and usability.


White Box Testing

White box testing, on the other hand, involves testing the software's internal workings, including code, design and logic. This helps to identify any issues or errors in the architecture and ensures that it is working as intended. White box testing is recommended for testing complex software systems, such as those used in banking or finance, and helps to find security vulnerabilities.


Grey Box Testing

Grey box testing is yet another testing technique that combines elements of black box and white box testing. This involves testing the software with some prior knowledge of its internal workings, including code and design. Grey box testing is perfect for testing software applications that have a mix of user interfaces and complex systems.

Should You Opt For Manual Or Automated Tests?

To guarantee the quality of your final products, we work hard to identify the best possible software testing approach based on your company’s specific goals and priorities.

Why Is Testing So Important in Software Development?

Software testing is important in software development for a number of reasons. First, it helps reduce the risk of software failures or errors, which can be costly in terms of time and money. Second, by testing software products thoroughly, developers can ensure that they are delivering high-quality products that improve the overall user experience. After all, testing in software development can identify issues like slow response times that may negatively impact user satisfaction. By addressing these issues through software testing, we can provide a better user experience and build a positive reputation for your products. Finally, software testing can also save you resources in the long run. By flagging and dealing with issues early on, it avoids costly rework or redevelopment in the future.
