AKVA QA Case Study

Customer satisfaction and relationships rank as top XBOSoft internal priorities. We’ve been providing software quality testing services around the globe since 2006 and we want to ensure we continue to provide our customers with what they need, when they need it.

While we like knowing what makes our customers happy, we also like knowing what could be improved. I guess you could say, it’s another testing platform – it’s how we get better!
