Testing On Demand(TM) Marks Ascendum's Latest Innovation: Unique Delivery and Pricing Model Blends Testing Efficiency and Proficiency Together, With an Innovative Approach That Creates Hundreds of Domestic Jobs(June 19, 2012)
CINCINNATI, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 06/19/12 -- Ascendum Solutions LLC today announces the launch of its new Testing On Demand service. This allows companies to get on-shore results for their application and release testing -- and create hundreds of on-shore jobs. But they only pay off-shore rates, and pay only for what they use, when they need it ... on demand!
"We realized through client feedback that our customers are looking for new ways to reduce their testing costs, improve results and build a scalable delivery model," said Tim Ryan, Ascendum's Vice President of Business Development. "This new service shows again how Ascendum is constantly innovating to meet market needs."
Testing On Demand allows clients to pay per use for their testing needs -- as and when they need it -- no more, no less. Rates are economical and compare favorably with traditional off-shoring services, but with significantly better results leveraging local, domain-savvy resources.
Using Ascendum's FASTR! approach, clients submit applications or releases for testing to our carefully chosen and rigorously trained staff. Ascendum's proven testing process gets the results the client is seeking and they pay only for as much or as little as they use -- a true on-demand model.
Software and application testing is increasingly important in today's environment. One estimate found that a defect caught in the testing phase was half as expensive to fix as one that needs to be repaired after production. Another study showed costs of nearly $3,000 to repair a single defect within 1,000 lines of code -- and an average business application contains nearly 400,000 lines of code. Testing efficiently and effectively saves money resulting in greater customer satisfaction.
Ascendum previously soft-launched this into the market with clients such as Fidelity Investments, Fifth Third Bank (NASDAQ: FITB) and Dayton-based printing and promotional materials provider WorkflowOne.
"This frees up more time, money and manpower for companies to do what they do best -- create and develop new software," said Tim Coulson, Ascendum's Quality Assurance Senior Practice Director. "Some early adopters have reported doubling development time by off-loading their testing to Ascendum."
The new service will be managed by Ascendum's Quality Assurance practice, one of the most experienced in the Midwest. The practice leaders include several industry veterans who drive new and innovative approaches for our clients. Those interested can visit www.testing-on-demand.com for more information.
