The QA (quality assurance) process is a complicated and layered process, where each member of the developing team is usually involved. Numerous developers, QA engineers, and project managers are testing the service from different sides and aspects to ensure its best possible quality. However, their efforts are usually not enough for making a diverse check-up of all the bugs, crashes, and weaknesses of the new solution. Further, there is a growing need for ‘user experience’ testing that is different from just finding bugs or crashes. What do most companies do to make sure their product or service will meet the demands of customers and provide the best user experience? How to check whether the application will perfectly work on different devices and carriers? How to verify the product will work the same way in different geographies? Companies hire crowd testers and use ‘the power of the crowd’ to perform a full circle of usability testing.
Usability testing: the basic concepts
Usability testing, also called product user testing, is a range of measures and tests performed by quality assurance professionals. Uberstesters user testing is meeting all the modern requirements of this type of testing, as well as offers all types of services for these purposes:
Comparative usability testing. QA professionals compare different platforms or services to discover both strong and weak points of the needed solutions. You can compare your product to the competitor’s one or select the most fitting option between two designs, developed by your company.
Explorative usability testing. Meeting the needs and requirements of the market is vital for the success of any product or service. A number of QAs will test your app on different devices, analyze the market, and highlight the functions to be included or improved in your product. You will be able to turn your app’s flaws into real benefits before the final release.
Usability evaluation. This type of testing includes a range of different services for a top-notch usability check. Along with a user-friendly design and easy-to-use functionality, this type of testing examines whether a service overall will meet the demands and expectations of customers.
Post production usability testing: people think that usability testing is only critical in the pre-launch design phase. This is not true. A perfect product is repeatedly tested during every stage of the product life cycle.
What is the Ubertesters Crowd Testing model?
Crowd testing is the preferred way to launch better digital products by performing large scale QA testing. The testing is done by a large group of global professional QAs with devices that conduct the testing “in-the-wild” and under real-life conditions. Crowd testing allows more people to participate in the testing process, with significantly lower cost to the organization, and in a much shorter lead-time when compared to the traditional in-house testing process.
What extra options does Ubertesters offer?
Testing on various types of devices. In case you want your app to have a brilliant look and performance on any gadget, it is important to test it on different devices. Virtual boxes are surely good but still can’t substitute real devices. With the help of testing on real gadgets, you will definitely know how your service is operating on devices with different operating systems, network type, and size.
Marketing tools. Many companies require testing apps exactly for a certain target audience. Ubertesters is proud of having thousands of expert QAs of various ages, gender, locations, and other parameters. Just describe the target audience and demographics you are looking for and get an advanced report in a few clicks.
Negative testing. There is nothing new that users often do unexpected things when using the app. For example, they can tap the same button for too many times, enter invalid symbols or numbers, reload the app several times within the shortest terms, etc. Testing the main functions and options only will not be enough to provide a shiny customers’ experience. Negative testing should always be a part of the best usability testing cases.
