Pre-certification testing

Ensure your software is on par with global, industry, and corporate requirements

Pre-release software audit

Choose to employ this testing strategy either at the early or final stages of your SDLC in order to:

Pass the required certifications on the first try and meet the release deadlines.

Avoid spending resources and time on last-minute adjustments or complete rework.

Verify your software is in full compliance with the established quality regulations.

4 stages of pre-certification assessment

  1. Specifications analysis

    We start by delving in your software product specifics and mapping the certifications and standards it must conform to.

  2. Test design

    Our team proceeds by setting the objectives, defining the inspection scope, and selecting suitable test practices and tools.

  3. Software evaluation

    Next, we run multiple testing scenarios to detect critical conformance deficiencies in the software aspects.

  4. Final reporting

    In the end, we submit a detailed testing report with an outline of all non-compliant areas, ranking them according to their severity level.
