Labeled eSQM(sm) (e-Software Quality Management), the services save companies time, money and help protect their market share.
Taking its proven 20-year-old testing methodology, Vali/TestPro(tm) (VTP), and re-tooling it for the e-space, now called eVTP(sm), Spherion works to educate clients about the risks their companies face in rushing to occupy e-business space if it is not done in a quality manner. Numerous corporations every day lose market share, endure customer complaints and investigations, and spend millions of dollars on correcting system problems that could have been avoided with front-end strategy, including an application risk assessment.
“With the busiest shopping season rapidly approaching, e-tailers that rushed to market last year without first testing the usability and viability of their systems, as well as new e-tailers attempting to enter this hyper-competitive space, need to be ready for this year’s more educated, less patient e-clientele,” stated Stuart Emanuel, president, worldwide operations, Spherion’s Business Solutions Technology Group. “Companies that have incurred the unnecessary costs of going to market quickly at the expense of quality were forced to reassess their entire e-strategy in order to compete more effectively in their industries.”
eSQM is a proprietary service that provides eSQM(sm) Testing Strategy, Planning and Execution for all types of testing which cover Environment Configuration, Usability, Scalability, Performance, Security, Regression, Independent Integration and User Acceptance. eSQM ensures timeliness and quality assurance to the client.
When Atlanta-based AtWork Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of HR application software solutions delivered over the Internet as a service, wanted to enhance its quality assurance process, Spherion executed an eSQM assessment to help them evaluate their needs. “Spherion helped us understand where we needed to go and how to get there,” said Barrett Thompson, VP of Operations, AtWork Technologies. “We found value in four key areas of Spherion’s recommendations: their identification of potential problem areas we hadn’t previously considered; the recommended order in which we should pursue these initiatives; refining our requirements for the distinct roles in our QA organization; and analysis and suggestions for quality assurance tools that would fit our unique product needs.”
Spherion’s technology consultants have for the past 30 years provided clients with Software Quality Management (SQM) solutions such as Software Validation and Testing, Test Automation, Quality Assurance, User Services and Training, for both IT and user departments.
