What we offer
A flexible approach

All businesses and systems are unique, with clients requiring differing functionality to fit their business processes. Whilst we utilise successful testing standards, our strategies are not based on a one size fits all approach. We work with you to determine the most appropriate testing method to ensure that your system works accordingly and delivers optimum value. With adaptable capacity management, we guarantee testing deliverables throughout every stage of the project.

Integration testing

With software solutions often having a requirement to integrate with 3rd party online service providers, we identify and test these integration requirements by utilising the best available tools and frameworks. This ensures that any information sent, or received, by your system is correct and accurate, guaranteeing that no data is lost between systems.

Robust system infrastructure

We ensure that client systems work both functionally and non-functionally as we know that uptime is critical to any successful system. Utilising the latest performance testing tools and frameworks, we ensure that the system infrastructure can effectively meet your volume, load and scalability requirements.

User experience testing

As well as ensuring that software systems work to client requirements, we test further to ensure that your systems will be fit-for-purpose in operational use cases, carrying out user experience testing to establish whether the system is simple and easy to use, rather than over-engineered.

Test automation

Alongside manual test analysis and execution methods, we utilise the best tooling for your system to ensure key areas are still covered as the system scales, especially when considering larger, complex software systems. Rather than increasing testing resource for a considerable testing requirement, we promote the use of GUI and API automated tests to ensure that testing phases are covered and repeatable at all stages of the testing process.

Security focused testing

With cyber attacks on the increase and regulations such as GDPR taking full effect, it is critical that information within systems is safely secured. In order to ensure systems are secure and robust, we test software to be compliant with OWASP standards, implementing the latest automated security scanning tools.

How to maximise the performance of your existing systems
Rich Kenny, Techbuyer

"There’s no question they were the best choice to work with. One of our key factors was availability. Since we moved to them, the site has had zero downtime. In the last month, we haven’t had even a second of unplanned maintenance. That’s exactly the reliability and sustainability we wanted."

George Thomson, Story Homes

"They are a key business partner because of their high-quality work and its impact on our business. Our organisation believes that quality is key, and we’ve found that Audacia buys 100% into that. They always try to meet our requirements, no matter how challenging."

Our process
Test Requirements Gathering
We work closely with you to scope testing requirements, breaking each down into clear, defined and unambiguous acceptance criteria, ensuring that system tests are focused on key areas of functionality for optimum quality.
Test Planning
We outline testing procedures to be completed throughout the project, defining and agreeing the testing scope and execution plan. Providing detailed planning gives you clear visibility of all aspects of testing activity.
Test Design, Review & Preparation
Requirements are then analysed and broken down into robust, accurate & granular test cases and scripts using industry leading test design techniques, ensuring all requirements are covered by relevant test cases and edge cases are identified.
Test Execution & Bug Reporting
With test cases created, plans are executed, allowing for any identified bugs to be easily aligned to the relevant system or process areas. In system failure, bugs are reported in detail with comparative outlines of expected and actual results, compiled into test reports to determine impacts and priorities.
Bug Fixing & Regression Testing
Once bugs are fixed, relevant failing test cases will be repeated to confirm elimination. Once all bugs have passed confirmation testing, a regression testing pack is executed to ensure any new changes and/or fixes have not impacted other areas. Using a risk-based approach maximises time spent testing business-critical areas to ensure they are functioning optimally.
Software Release
The system is then progressed to user acceptance testing (UAT). Before release, a test exit report is distributed to stakeholders. During UAT, testing results are verified by users, ensuring that functionality is fit for purpose. After release, smoke tests are performed to ensure all deployments are successful.
