Beta Testing & Quality Assurance
Hardware and/or software developers who wish to ensure their product is fully functional and defect-free before
their product goes to market will benefit from RomNet's full service Beta Testing and Quality Assurance services.
RomNet is a unique testing facility. Our approach in testing a title is to play it; for a peripheral it is to use it; for an Internet product it is to push the limits of its functionality. RomNet's staff will not only report on software problems, but will also provide valuable feedback as to the competitive quality of a particular product. Our experience in telephone technical support ensures a watchful eye regarding "call generating" concerns, thereby lowering total support costs over the products lifecycle.
Systems for Quality Assurance
We have over 50 different hardware configurations. These configurations mirror the most common systems in the consumer marketplace today. We know the problem sound cards, the troublesome video cards, and the buggy drivers. Our testing plan is designed to ensure that your product is tested in the environment it will be used, by people who emulate the end user in your target market. Testing can be performed on all major platforms, including Windows, Macintosh, Linux systems.
1. Acquire product familiarity (study the documentation and learn the software)
2. Create a custom Beta Test Plan
3. Create a Bug Database for problem tracking
4. Install software on each machine:
