QA Best Practices: 5 Performance Metrics Every QA Team Should Track

QA test execution can only be as strong as the strategy you have in place. One of the best QA practices we’ve noticed across many software companies actually happens before any testing begins.

But how do you know if your strategy is sound?

Increase Your ROI With Streamlined Salesforce Test Automation

When you think of a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool, the first to come to mind is Salesforce. That’s because the biggest players across all industries - from cybersecurity and medical technology to financial services and retail - choose this CRM solution to sustain customer relationships. And because Salesforce is designed to help businesses deliver personalized experiences to every customer, companies of all sizes can implement CRM tools in their sales, marketing and commerce practices.

Salesforce tends to win over its competition in the CRM space because of its customizable implementation and integration with other applications such as service cloud, security, outbound messaging, Apex programming, web portal, web services, social media and data loader - just to name a few.

Choose the Right Automated Functional Testing Tools for Your Product

You may have the superior product, but if the first application a customer tries is “good enough,” you may never get the chance to prove you can do things better.
