User Acceptance Testing (UAT) is a vital part of the software development lifecycle, whether systems are developed internally or purchased off the shelf with bespoke elements and interfaces.
Application owners, subject matter experts and business users are increasingly asked to take on UAT activities in addition to their usual day jobs.
We help ensure positive outcomes by providing structure, rigour and a consistent approach based on industry standards. This is backed up by a pool of permanent Consultants with UAT experience in a range of industry sectors and technologies.
UAT can be run as a Managed Service to ensure business requirements are fulfilled, giving you confidence that testing is being performed to industry standards and is proactively managed by testing specialists. Often this is done onsite to maximise communication and collaboration with the team.
Key aspects of the service include:
- Establishment of process and structure
- Test management and planning
- Defect management, reporting and triage
- Regular project reports
- Liaison with suppliers to ensure deliverables are achieved and timelines are managed
- Consulting on contractual terms with suppliers
We also hold workshops to introduce your team to testing fundamentals and processes. Combined with proactive and supportive management of the UAT process, we enable the team to channel their business knowledge and feedback, guided by structured methods, tools and experienced testers.
