Benefits of fixed-priced cooperation with a1qa

Predictable budget

A set price for a specific project or service allows our clients to feel more confident about future costs and mitigate overspending risks.

Less stress for clients

a1qa assumes full responsibility for running a project, which means that our clients can spend more time on other high-priority tasks.

Foreseeable timeframe

a1qa delivers QA activities in accordance with an agreed-upon timeline, which eliminates delays or missed deadlines.

Meticulous planning

a1qa discusses project goals, scope, and deliverables with our clients in advance, so they can be confident in project outcomes.

Help with requirements

Should we identify areas in requirements in need of refinement, we offer feedback and propose improvements during the estimation phase.

High transparency

Having a dedicated contact point with a1qa, clients are always informed about the project’s state. We ensure complete transparency and offer clients round-the-clock access to task progression and execution results.

Our fixed-price-based software testing stages

When initiating your testing project with a1qa, you can rest assured that technicalities and project administration are taken care of. From infrastructure setup to team ramp-up, we handle everything on your behalf.

  1. Stage 1. Define scope

    Together with the client, we clarify project requirements, scope, and deadlines, advising on the best testing solution.

  2. Stage 2. Estimate costs

    We thoroughly analyze the resources necessary to complete the project on time, as well as relevant project risks and come up with a comprehensive proposal to discuss with the client.

  3. Stage 3. Select specialists

    We form technical requirements for the team, select the candidates with the most experience in the clients’ field, assign and introduce a QA manager as the main point of contact with the client, and agree on the project’s start date.

  4. Stage 4. Sign papers

    We respect clients’ internal policies and sign an NDA, SLA, or other required agreements to ensure data safety and provide the expected level of service. In addition, we sign SoW and MSA with accurately described scope, deliverables, timelines, and pricing.

  5. Stage 5. Execute project

    We delve into software specifics and requirements, create test strategy and documentation, and perform specified testing activities.

  6. Stage 6. Provide deliverables

    Regardless of the service provided, we create a detailed report with findings and analytics of testing results, detected issues, and software quality level. We track all defects in a bug-tracking system and attach screenshots and logs. If deliverables include technical aspects (e.g., source code, pipelines, configuration), we also create a knowledge transfer plan for the client’s team.

When to opt for fixed-priced-based testing

Limited budget

Your budget is fixed and there is no room for cost overruns, but you need to get the maximal value out of the provided QA services.

Innovation-driven projects

You have to implement new methodologies or practices, which is a challenging task. We can help you start small by doing a PoC with a predefined scope.

One-off testing

You need a one-time assessment of your software’s quality, especially performance and cybersecurity testing done by niche experts.

Independent pre-release testing

You want to release software to production but need a fresh perspective on its quality.

Strict deadlines

You need to ensure effective results delivery within a specified time frame.

Adhering to our core objectives to shorten the delivery time and improve software quality, a1qa’s specialists built a custom-made test automation solution from scratch. By organizing automated script runs within three layers, the test automation team mitigated the risks of large-scale automated tests’ alterations, prevented checks duplicates, and shortened the testing time that resulted in a 22.5X boost.

We’d also like to mention a1qa’s initiative to share test automation expertise with our QA engineering team at a workshop. The a1qa specialists provided instructions on automated testing and demonstrated how the test automation solution worked in real-life mode.
