Every single software product that is released to the market must go through with quality testing and bug fixing. This typical process is keeping both the developers and the testers on their toes to keep up with latest trends like IoT, cloud, big data and mobile platforms in the testing field. Not surprisingly, this growing industry has laid out a launching ground for many quality assurance solutions providers to have the right blend of software testing capabilities and quality assurance competency to align with technology and practice revolutions. However, several of them, to win the rat race of reaping more revenue, confine themselves to become mere service vendors. But QA Mentor – a leading quality assurance company – on the other hand, goes above and beyond the typical boundaries of a vendor and handholds the customers throughout the entire lifecycle of a project.

The Silver Lining
Adapting new styles of performing QA, convincing and explaining customers about disciplinary approach for testing were some of the major roadblocks that QA Mentor faced in their initial years of starting up.
