Real Time Quality Assurance Infusion
A major software product release date is only weeks away and is in jeopardy of being missed. The project team realizes that catching up using only internal resources is virtually impossible, and upon entering the project test phase, discovers they lack the lab resources or test tools to complete testing.
To meet the impending release date with an acceptable software quality level, the project team needs additional personnel, lab resources and test tools.
Shasta QA immediately infuses the personnel, proven methodologies and tools to meet the impending release date while meeting software quality goals. Shasta QA shares the development team’s urgency and focuses its efforts on the highest risk software components while providing visibility of test coverage and previously undetected areas where software quality risks may exist.

Our company has worked with Shasta QA for only a few months, but in that short time they have become an integral part of our software and content development and release process. They have quickly mastered our content production processes, and most importantly, their hands-on test engineers have shown excellent flexibility and communication skills. I am happy to recommend Shasta QA to others.
