Outsourcing QA testing
services to the Philippines


What is outsourced QA testing?

Outsourcing of QA testing involves recruiting testers who are external to your organisation for the purpose of performing a range of quality assurance tasks. Typically these people reside offshore in locations such as the Philippines.

By outsourcing quality assurance testing, businesses are able to focus on the actual development of new tech products as well as launching to market and managing sales and other business partnerships. It also means that the testing phase of a project is external, unbiased and very task focused. As a result, you’re likely to pick up on more issues which can then be fed back to your local team for the next phase of fixing before being re-tested.

Outsourcing is not only a way to make significant cost savings on your project, but also gives your local team the support they need to focus on the development side of the business. An offshore QA tester will look after a range of tasks, including but not limited to:

  • Developing and implementing test plans
  • Executing testing in line with strategies and plans
  • Recording test results, raising defect records and re-testing defect fixes
  • Escalating risks and issues
  • Identifying and developing test data
  • Manual and automated testing
  • Providing clear feedback to developers
  • Working across a range of programs and platforms.

Why do businesses outsource QA testing offshore?

Businesses are outsourcing quality assurance testing so that their local team can continue with core development projects. It can help organisations stay on target for critical deadlines by allowing teams to continually work while still getting feedback from the testing team. Developers are also able to focus on the vital aspects of the job without getting distracted and bogged down in the testing phase.

Requiring a strong attention to detail and a process focus, QA testing is ideal for offshore staff who are dedicated entirely to this single phase of software development. Meanwhile your local team is working on your core business - not just development but also sales, marketing, product launches and affiliate and customer relationships.
