  • Interoperability – Exercising hardware with a selection of hardware and software to confirm ”harmonious coexistence” of the products
  • Stress/Performance/Load/Scalability – Using either actual users or virtual users with tools such as LoadRunner,WebLoad, WinRunner, WebFT, TCL, Test Director, Visual Test and Open Source
  • Benchmarking – Using internal-developed or third-party benchmark tools
  • Competitive Analysis – Comparing client’s product with competitor’s product
  • Usability/Look-&-Feel – Provide end-user analysis with various user experience (i.e., novice, intermediate, expert, etc.)
  • Functionality – Exercising the various execution paths, either manually or through automated scripting tools such as WinRunner, Visual Test and WebFT
  • Website Testing – Functionality, Browser Compatibility, Load/Stress/Performance using automation tools such as LoadRunner or WebLoad
  • Security – Test to various security standards such as Common Criteria, ICSA, IEEE 802.1x, etc. using various third-party tools
  • Localization – Software compatibility and functionality test across 35 different languages, such as FIGS, CCJK, etc.

  • Test Plan/Test Case Development – Develop customized test plan/test case based on client’s specification and/or product documentation

OnSite Testing

Sometimes you just need a couple test engineers onsite at your location. We provide test engineers for specific, discrete projects. These may be one-offs or long term, and may be in any of the various areas that we provided skilled testing, certification or development services for.

Say you want to perform USB certification testing of a printer, but your industrial printer weighs a whopping 5 tons. Doesn’t make sense financially to ship that monster to us to perform testing – the shipping alone would break the bank. Let us provide experienced and authorized USB test engineers to come to your location. We can use your test equipment (if you have it) or if necessary bring our own. Obviously, we’re not sending out a test engineer to test a keyboard, but if you’ve a need to have someone onsite, we can accommodate your request.

Or you could have a highly anticipated, new product and your security is so high, you just can’t take it out of your facility to our lab. Let us help you out. We can bring the engineers needed to your location to help you with your project. All of our test engineers go through extensive background checks prior to hiring and randomly throughout employment.
