Achieving high-quality testing via testers that have obtained difficult certification
As a professional organization that ensures software quality, SHIFT has a rich supply of human resources specialized in testing. We propose appropriate tests according to the required timing and budget, which are accurately executed by our certified testers. We ensure the division of operations for developing and testing in all projects, which empowers an environment where the customer engineers can focus on development only.
We provide thorough management of factors such as the test execution count and progress speed based on a test management methods established by utilizing our experience. This enables us to strictly observe schedules and control test progress. Our format for reporting bugs is also standardized and enables real-time reporting so that engineers can easily reproduce and fix bugs immediately.
Our integrated software test management tool “CAT” filled with SHIFT test management methods enables visualization of the test execution status and management in terms of hours to dramatically improve the precision of progress estimates. This enables problems to be handled in real-time, both at test centers and customer offices, as well as various analysis for bugs.
At SHIFT, not just anyone can become a tester that executes tests. All our testers have obtained “CAT certification” that proves whether they have the skills required for test work. With a pass rate of 6%, this enables us to screen for highly productive testers.
SHIFT was founded by a consultant involved in advances in the manufacturing industry that dominated the world with the “Made in Japan” quality, and those operational improvement methods are applied to our test execution phases. We pursue productivity via advanced phase management methods such as the subdivision of work phases and visualization of performance.
SHIFT can provide on-demand test execution professionals according to customer needs, from a minimum of one person for a single day. Utilizing the resources of SHIFT enables costs to be dramatically reduced by making test execution costs variable.
