Project scope

The cooperation with a1qa started from a successful fulfillment of the pilot project. The customer was fully satisfied and made the decision to move to full-cycle testing of the products.

The major challenge was in shortage of development documentation on pilot projects. The invited QA team had to investigate the functionality and identify the difference between defects and proper behavior on their own. Another challenge was in testing UI with rare Asian languages and comparing functionality according to localization settings.

Acronis also required testing builds on all available operating systems, a vast number of server types, and virtual machines.

a1qa demonstrated outstanding performance and found by 30% more defects than Acronis’ internal QA team and the previous QA outsourcing partner did.

The client stated that the a1qa dedicated team was twice as more efficient in comparison with the previous QA specialists.
