ImpactQA provides complete suite of manual and automated functional testing services, delivered throughout the Software Development Life Cycle. We guarantee end to end software testing and QA solutions for a bug-free product, in compliance with all functional requirements.
The Functional Testing Process
The overall functional test process is based on the fact that a comprehensive test strategy is defined, documented and agreed with project stakeholders. The Test Strategy defines why the organization tests things, what is important to the organization (i.e. costs, quality, time, scope) and how, by whom and when testing should be carried out. The test process is referred to in the test strategy and adhered to during the test planning, test analysis and test design, test build and test execution sub-processes and the process steps required within each sub-process.
The following high level test processes aim to address the following questions:
- Will be tested and why – Master Test Plan (and Test Plans) informed by input from the Test policy and/or Test Strategy
- How it will be tested – Test Specification, Test design and Test build
- When it will be tested – Test scheduling
- Who it will be tested by – Test execution
- What it has discovered – Test recording
- When it will finish – checking for test completion

Using the V-Model
Regardless of the project management or systems lifecycle used, from a functional testing methodology perspective, ImpactQA uses the V-Model as the best practice during test analysis design and test execution. The diamonds in each diagram represent the deliverables/milestones produced at each stage e.g. the test plan, test specification, test design, test schedule, test scripts, test results etc.
Types of applications
Our test portfolio covers a wide range of applications across various domains. Our core expertise being:
- Web applications, including enterprise Web
- Desktop applications
- Integrated Systems and applications
- Mobile applications
Levels of Functional Testing
Module / Component Level Testing
ImpactQA closely follows software industry standards and best practices to create advanced solutions with sustainable architecture, optimized performance and maintainability of each application’s module or component.
ImpactQA’s experts, possess broad testing experience and a mature analytical knowledge base, ensure systems are compliant with the defined technology, functional and business requirements, as well as developed scenarios.
We make sure system components or modules interact efficiently and reliably, thus reducing final implementation and integration costs.
System Integration Testing
We have substantial QA expertise in integration projects involving multiple systems deployments and interaction, including enterprise solutions implementation.
Integrating Testing Framework onto Development
In development projects ImpactQA’s Testing team ensures that there is a proper coupling with the development team. The principles of V-Model are followed and early engagement of testing team is ensured. During the requirement analysis phase senior testers and test team lead participates in requirement testing (static testing). The goal is to ensure that the defects are captured and corrected early in the SDLC.
Innovation is the key
Various Innovative techniques are used by ImpactQA testers to reduce the time to market and effectively test the applications. It also ensures quality testing and high rate of defect finding. Some of these techniques are:
- Exploratory testing
- Risk Based testing
- Testing with heat maps
