For a software product to be successful in the market and improve your company’s visibility, it needs to be able to live up to its claims. It is not simply enough that a product performs its functions properly; it also needs to be secure, scalable and reliable. At Ascent IT Solutions, we understand that need for rigorous software product testing of a product to bring up true solutions, and meet the demands of the target market. As software products get more and more complicated, so do their technology and techniques. Our endeavor is to build software product testing capabilities that allow us to commit to better solutions at the highest quality and lowest turnaround time.

There are a number of approaches through which we enable software product testing. To create an effective product test, it is not enough that you create routine procedures and follow them; testing a complex product effectively is, in essence, an investigative process and explores each and every permutation and pass the software through such permutations that depict real life application of the software.

Some of the business critical software product testing services we employ are:

  • Validation testing
  • Black box testing
  • Configuration review
  • Usability, accessibility, testing and analysis
  • Alpha and Beta testing
  • System testing
  • testing
  • Security Testing (robustness, reliability testing)
  • Stress/Load Testing
  • Performance testing
  • Compatibility testing
  • Interoperability testing
  • Globalization/ Localization testing
  • Functional testing
  • Unit testing

Software product testing at Ascent IT Solutions is considered a very vital stage in product development, considering the role it plays in boosting our ability to deliver high quality products.

For the vast majority of product managers, their involvement with product development activity ends with the day the product is launched. Not at Ascent IT Solutions; the product release is only the beginning of a relationship, involving the need for continual maintenance and upgrades. We believe that a product, once it is open to the public, receives several reactions from users, and managers will then have to work out the changes that will gain acceptance with users and increase its popularity in the online market.

Our product maintenance and support work spans the below tasks:

  • Corrective maintenance- reactive modification to correct discovered problems.
  • Adaptive maintenance- modification to keep it usable in a changed or changing environment or technological change.
  • Perfective maintenance- improves performance or maintainability.
  • Preventive maintenance- modification to detect and correct latent faults.

A common issue faced by most enterprise products face is supporting their installed base on newer versions of the product. Our product maintenance and support team will enable correcting errors in design, improving upon them, and converting them for using on other hardware. We also facilitate migration systems, controlling of the day-to-day functions of the system and perfecting the prevailing functions available to users.

Maintaining multiple versions of an old code-base requires significant investment. Since there a lot of other responsibilities involved, notably supporting existing clients on legacy technology platform, we completely understand the challenges faced in transitioning the product to the next level while making the older version available for existing users.

We provide for such dual product maintenance and support by developing maintenance plans and procedures and implementing the configuration management process, problem modification tasks, maintenance reviews, migration tasks and software retirement tasks. We believe that our clients will benefit from this service immensely, since it enables them to use our offshore product maintenance and support services in an effective manner.
