SQS is one of Europe's largest specialist test consultancies with over 1900 test consultants and a specialist test team of 400+ testers in Pune, India.
Under this new partnership, Assurity provides all on-site customer-facing activities and ensures that the right test solution is designed and implemented to meet the project’s needs. Assurity’s NZ team will build the initial test assets and prove these through any project – and, when the time is right, work with SQS in India to manage ongoing regression and test execution remotely. The Assurity on-site team manages communication and ensures risks and issues are identified and managed accordingly.
This approach brings together two specialist test consultancies to deliver a unique solution. Not only does it lower the cost of testing for our customers, but the time zone difference also allows us to extend the available testing time and test coverage.
Frank Ridder, Research Director for Gartner, says: “In global projects the efficient integration of on-site and offshore resources is very important. We see a trend away from large-scale mega deals and more towards the multi-sourcing solutions offered by specialised service providers.”
