The blog is being sponsored this month by TestLab², a software testing and QA company based in the Ukraine. I have used TestLab² on a number of occasions for third party testing of PerfectTablePlan releases on both Windows and Mac OS X. They found a number of bugs that I hadn’t been able to find on my own (testing your own software is always problematic) and gave me additional confidence that I hadn’t let any embarrassing bugs make it through into the final binaries. Their prices are very reasonable (from $20/hour) and I have always found them to be very professional and responsive (see my previous write-up on outsourcing testing). They also have access to operating systems that I don’t have set-up, e.g. Windows 8 and Mac OS X 10.8.
Quote “successful software” when you ask for an estimate and they will give you a 20% discount. This offer is valid for first-time customers, for the next 14 days only.
Their website says that they are doing Android, too. This is good. Thanks for sharing this information.
@softwarecandy, we do have a set of various Android terminals for testing purposes, feel free to drop us a note for details.
I used them a while back on Andy’s recommendation. Highly recommended.
I’ve used them a lot too – highly recommended.
I have just contacted them for our products. Lets see.
How many hours of third party testing from Testlab would you recommend for a product like your Table Planning Software, as I’m considering using them?
It depends on lots of factors including:
-how complex your software is
-how much has changed since the last release
-how extensive your own QA is
-what your budget is
-how many platforms you are testing on
I expect I will be paying for at least a few days testing for PefectTablePlan v5.
