Website Testing Services

Website Testing

When was the last time you used the Yellow Pages to search for a business or service? It has become so common for a business to have a website that expectations are such that if you don’t have a website you don’t exist. Websites for every company, brand, institution, and organization, from the newest start-up to industry goliaths have become essential. And this is true globally!

Today, there are nearly 2 billion websites. Websites are typically dedicated to a particular topic or purpose, such as news and information, education, commerce, entertainment, or social networking. These websites inform potential customers about products and services, represent a company and its branding, facilitate the purchase and distribution of goods, and in addition to presenting text, also offer images and video. And to add to mix, users can access websites on a range of devices, including desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

How Important are Websites?

  • Over 90% of people start their search for products, services, and information online.
  • 30% of consumers won’t’ consider a business if that business doesn’t have a website.
  • 75% of consumers make judgments on a company’s credibility based on the company’s website usability and user experience.
  • Commercial transactions in every industry, including not just B2C but B2B, industrial, and manufacturing, are influenced by a company’s website content and performance.

Websites now drive ROI for most organizations and are considered a key component of business strategy. It’s more important now than ever to make sure your online presence, eCommerce software, and web application services, and mobile offerings are stable, secure, and streamlined.

What Defines a Quality Website?

We live in an age of NOW, where consumers want the information they seek immediately—meaning your company’s website should be efficient, easy to navigate and functional, as well as providing valuable and accurate information. It has to be well-polished, which means that it has no spelling or grammatical mistakes and works well in all browsers and can be easily accessed on a mobile device. The increasing trend of using mobile access to the internet means that web development needs to be carefully considered and built for effective mobile viewing.

Website Testing Services

From a software QA and testing perspective, websites are no longer simple information-based venues. Their increasing size and complexity, combined with Agile’s short development cycles and frequent changes in requirements, present many quality assurance and website QA testing issues, such as website security testing, website user testing, and website usability testing.

Take advantage of XBOSoft’s proven expertise in Website Testing Services

With all this complexity, website testing is now more important than ever.

To handle all of these issues in testing websites, we’ve categorized our website testing services into the following:

API Testing: Often overlooked, but perhaps the most important type of testing as a broken or partially functional API can lead to errors out of the blue. With software becoming more componentized, we are left vulnerable behind the opacity of the interface. Testing the interface thoroughly backwards and forwards and across 3rd party components that it may interact with is a critical element in all test efforts. For Ecommerce sites that use 3rd party payment integrations, this should be an integral component of your website testing strategy.

Functionality Testing: A functional test covers basic functionality, including menus, links and forms, test runs, role authentication as well as complicated features such as database connections and third-party component integration.

Manual Regression & Automated Web Application Testing: Any source code changes to a web app generally require some level of regression testing. This can either be 100% manual regression testing or more often, a mix of manual and automated regression testing, with automation employed strategically where it makes the most sense from an application usage point of view.

Website Usability Testing: Heuristic inspection-based testing that evaluates usability issues such as flow, efficiency, errors, success rate, content checking, and aspects of user help functions.

Compatibility Testing: Addresses browser compatibility, operating system compatibility, mobile device compatibility, and printing options. With device options proliferating, understanding what can get you to 80/20 with the least amount of effort, time, and money while ensuring your coverage is crucial.

Performance Testing: Users disappointed by slow load times can easily type in another URL. Load testing web applications and web stress testing with benchmarking and application performance evaluation under various environment characterizations, including connection speeds, user loads, and user activities.

Website Security Testing and Web Application Penetration Testing: for potential vulnerabilities as identified by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), plus XBOSoft’s own list of top security threats.
