Keep Your Software Out of the Headlines®

If You're Not in the News, Thank Your Certified Testers

Ever see a news headline that starts with "Programming error blamed..." for something that affected thousands and damaged a company's reputation?
Of course, you have. 
The bigger headline is this: "Companies mistakenly assume that teams without proven testing skills can consistently create high-quality software." 
That's not just our opinion. One study found that when it comes to removing defects, “Untrained amateur personnel such as developers themselves seldom top 35% for any form of testing."
That's why proven software testing skills are critical to keeping your software out of the headlines. That same study found that “a synergistic combination of defect prevention, pre-test defect removal, and formal testing by certified personnel can top 99% in defect removal efficiency while simultaneously lowering costs and shortening schedules.” See all 10 reasons why you need certified personnel testing your software
Are there any bad headlines about your software today? No? Then thank your certified testers, the silent heroes of quality software your customers love.
