  • We offer a broad range of services to help our clients address the complex challenges - and opportunities – within testing and QA today.Whether you just want to get more out of automation or revamp your entire QA program to an agile approach, you get the benefit of our expert resources – practice leaders in key disciplines who we invest in understanding your challenge and develop a solid approachWe leverage our existing research and vast intellectual property – we get there faster because we are not re-inventing the wheel each timeWe have 10 distinct areas that we have worked in and have solutions / service models already built to leverageQuality Path – our keystone service offering for process improvement - delivered for Ecloab RD&E, HealthPartners, Digital River and many other companies. Done dozens of assessments – automation, etc.
  • We began as off-site testing facility for IBM and Microsoft.25 years ago – testing did not exist as a professional discipline.So, we developed our own proprietary testing methodology, approach, standards, and templatesOur clients recognized we were doing something right – more efficient and repeatable than what they were doing. They asked us to train them.We have delivered public and private training for more than 18 years – to hundreds of professionals. We have over a dozen topics already developed.In 2011Trained more than 100 peoplePrivate delivery clients included: Pearson Vue, PeopleNet, Wells Fargo, ev3, HealthPartners, many othersCustom content: We have a Practice Lead for our training services , we pair her with our SME as instructor to meet unique skill development needs of our clients.
  • Whether you need an expert or a low cost resource, there is not a company out there that can do a better job than we can – at getting you the talent you need.Unlike generalist staffing companies, we can afford to invest our entire recruiting energy into QA professionals – knowing them and qualifying them and staying in touch with them throughout their career.If you compare us to our best niche competitors – they do not offer the full-time employment benefits and career development opportunities that we do – we have exceptionally high retention – our clients get a very stable team.Qualification ProcessPre-Screen BenchmarkQA Career Fit InterviewTechnical Skills Qualification with SME on our staffReference Checks – Informal and FormalWe provide full range of job types in QA – as well as BA resources (beginning of SDLC)Examples of staffing success: Wells Fargo merger, 3M – preference, T-Check exclusive, Thomson Reuters SAP purple squirell
