Software Product Testing

You're bringing a software product to market. And your career is, once again, hinging on its success.

Let us save you time, improve productivity, and raise ROI.

We test:

  • Stress/capacity
  • Scalability
  • Performance
  • Functionality
  • Compatibility
  • Interoperability
  • And more

Get the testing, analysis, planning, comparative evaluation, and compatibility you need to launch a winner every time.

We offer testing services in each of the following areas:

1. Website & e-Commerce testing
2. Software testing
3. Multimedia testing

Website & e-Commerce testing

Your Website. It can be a vibrant new venue for distributing information, educating consumers, and most importantly, selling products and services in a way that's dynamic and secure.
That is, provided it works right.

ALG accurately tests the performance, scalability, and fault tolerance characteristics of dynamic enterprise web applications using innovative benchmarking methodologies.

Integrated End-to-end, not Component-based Testing.
Our testing model focuses on the performance and scalability of complete multi-tier solutions, rather than individual components.

To achieve this, we deploy networking equipment and dozens of client workstations, along with the ability to test more than 10,000 web clients openly and concurrently. We generate realistic loads. And performance metrics ensure an accurate description of tested products' actual performance.

Benchmarking and Performance Testing vs. Hypothetical Projections.
The ALG e-commerce testing model simultaneously exercises varying aspects of a dynamic web application based on real-world usage patterns. This allows us to report empirical performance metrics, rather than projected results based on findings from smaller load tests.

e-Commerce Scalability Testing.
Our state-of-the-art e-commerce testing facility features multi-vendor and multi-platform testing and operational environments, producing clear, objective benchmark data, and using realistic implementation approaches. With our testing tool we can:

  • Easily record and maintain test scripts
  • Execute configurable load test scenarios
  • Scale to desired user loads
Software Testing

The Test Plan.
Every testing begins with a test plan, generally created in just a few days - at no cost to you - by our highly-experienced planning staff . After reviewing your internal release, alpha, or beta code you provided, we'll devise a Test plan that covers critical areas in a logical test process.

Different kinds of software may require radically different test techniques, time frames, and cost considerations. The test plan will include Functionality, Compatibility, Scalability and Usability testing and may be based on a flat price or on time-and-materials. Test plans can accommodate multiple builds of products during test periods, and always include provisions for regression and re-testing after bugs are fixed. We may recommend detailed scripting, automation or "exploratory" ad-hoc test techniques. All testing is done in-house at our facility.

Functionality testing / Basic quality assurance.
This is the "bug-finding" phase of testing and generally precedes compatibility testing. During this phase, our experts analyze your product and recommend a reasonable and cost-conscious plan. We will execute it to give you confidence needed to take your product to market.

Compatibility.
Will your German version operate on the French version of Windows® NT?
Will your French version operate on the English version of Windows 98?
Do you need to test your communications module with dozens of leading modems?
Has your client software been tested with all the leading network operating systems and environments?
Do you have to be sure that your title supports all the leading sound and graphics cards, and complete systems from major computer manufacturers?

ALG maintains a vast computer lab and performs rapid compatibility tests-with all the crucial hardware and software on the market. Let our experts propose a test matrix that will aggressively position you in the marketplace.

Usability.
Has your software been reviewed by a focus group of target customers?
Usability testing is generally performed early in the development cycle, when it's still possible to make important alterations to your user interface.

We put together teams of UI pros-along with focus-group leaders and experienced developers-to give you crucial feedback at an opportune time.

Multimedia Testing

Our fully-equipped Multimedia Testing Lab includes a dedicated project team whose objective is simple: ensure compatibility and get the bugs out.
Based on a standardized test plan template, we will effectively test your product on a variety of equipment configurations. Or, we can design a custom testing program to meet your unique needs.
Use our test results to boost performance and functionality during development and gain confidence that your product meets the highest standards.
