Description

For the past 10 years, SQS has built a strong technical infrastructure, developed testing techniques and methodologies and obtained an extensive experience in different business domains.
SQS has always performed testing processes both at the customer site and at its own locations, guaranteeing the reduction of costs and improving quality. Due to its important international growth with the location in Brussels and the increase of the outsourced activities workload, SQS decided to organise these services carried out at their facilities in Bilbao, Madrid and Brussels under the name of SOQUS, the independent Test-Lab of SQS:
SQS, by means of SOQUS, offers the client a high qualified, specialized and complete outsourced testing solution, based on:

  1. A highly qualified and stable testing teams. Our team is formed by certified professionals: project managers, team leaders, QA engineers, administrators, configuration managers…An adaptable and flexible team that can be readjusted anytime upon customer’s request, effectively managing your QA testing processes.
  2. A wide and complete range of testing tools Our staff is proficient in the application of automated testing tools and manual technologies, both cutting-edge tools available in the market and our own tools, continuously upgraded by our developing team. SOQUS has Test Automation Tools, Requirements Management Tools, Error Management, Configuration Management and Support Tools…
  3. A set of well proven procedures that ensure a controlled process and a proper communication with the customer, assigning always a Client-Manager, responsible for communication and general assistance
  4. International infrastructure to meet our client needs SOQUS facilities are located in Bilbao, Madrid, Barcelona and Brussels. The type of infrastructure required in each case is very different as well as the scope of the testing conducted. Therefore, the success factor is the capacity to install complex infrastructures in a short time and the capacity to design testing strategies adapted to each project. SOQUS has a large infrastructure continuously updated, that allows SOQUS to perform complex processes and has, as well, agreements with SW & HW manufacturers that supply the additional devices when needed in a very short and controlled period of time.

Benefits

The Test-Lab concept has shown clear advantages for the customer in terms of cost reduction. Besides, it offers some customers access to complex testing process that could not be performed within their facilities. It is possible to make a comparison of the cost of the same service depending on where and how it is performed. If we consider 100 the cost of a testing process at the customer facilities using its own tools, the same process performed at the Test-Lab has a cost reduction of more of 50%.

Since the very beginning, SOQUS was conscious of the prevention certain customer may have in externalising testing process.  In order to ensure a smooth and efficient process, it was decided to start any process by defining the working procedures to be accomplished by both sides (Test-Lab Team and Customer).
SOQUS has got well established procedures to tackle the key aspects that lead to a successful service completion. Some of them are:

  • Criteria and requirements for the handover of applications
  • Monitoring and reporting procedures
  • Error Management tools and procedures
  • Capacity to offer personalise test environment maintained in time
  • Client acceptance procedures

Services

The main services provided by the Test-Lab SOQUS are:

TestWORKFLOW

SQS TestWORKFLOW is a tool designed to help throughout the software validation process, by helping the user to automate tests and requirements management, testing and documents. Its conception and design make it particularly suitable to be applied in embedded software environments in critical systems, such as railways, automation and or tooling machinery. This tool include defining and managing requirements, organising the testing process, the automatic execution of test cases, results analysis and generating multiple reports. The intuitive interface allows any type of user to understand the validation process and learn how to use it without becoming a specialist.

  • Defining and managing requirements

    One of the keys to ensuring that a validation process is successful lies in good management of the system requirements. SQS TestWORKFLOW defines the requirements using a template which contains all your important information for a simple management and administration.

  • Test organisation

    Test are organised in a hierarchical structure; Test Class, Test Sub Class, Test Case and Test Data, to facilitate the organisation and intuitive management, as well as guaranteeing traceability throughout the process.

  • Execution

    SQS TestWORKFLOW allows you to communicate with a system and a launch automatically or manually (is up to you) the test cases. SQSTestWORKFLOW creates a log file to store the results of the tests.

  • Results analysis

    SQS TestWORKFLOW evaluates the results of the test cases in two different ways; by comparing the results obtained with those expected or by showing them to you, to decide whether they are valid according to the system acceptance criteria.

  • Reports

    You get various reports with the information about the status of the planification and the execution of the tests. In order to provide a simple and standardised document, these reports are exported into Microsoft Word.

Acceptance and Certification of applications and products

Independent Verification and Validation

Software validation and verification is a critical tool used to assure the quality of systems. Software validation can increase the usability and reliability of a product, resulting in a reduced rate of failure, fewer recalls and corrective actions, and ultimately less risk for users. Software validation can also reduce long term costs by making it easier and less costly to reliably modify software and revalidate software changes. Software maintenance can represent a very large percentage of the total software cost over the entire lifecycle. An established and comprehensive software validation process helps to reduce the long-term cost of software by reducing the cost of validation for each subsequent software release.
SOQUS, combines proven experience in system compliance, validation and verification techniques with in-depth knowledge of the processes and standards that are prevalent and followed in different sectors.

E2E Validation

SOQUS is present in the Telecommunications Sector and provides End-to-End validation Services. SOQUS expertise includes Converged Next Generation Networks, and 2G and 3G traditional networks, making SOQUS qualified to offer quality services to telecommunications operators and service providers.
SOQUS services include, in addition to the functional validation of the system under test, network performance monitoring, measurement of end to end network QoS and interoperability.
Interoperability is a critical factor, especially regarding the converged networks that are emerging today. By using an environment that is directly connected to the operator’s network, SOQUS is able to offer enhanced service validation assuring interoperability. The End-to End Validation Services provided by SOQUS are designed to satisfy service providers, operators and end users.

Functional and Platform Testing

Load and Performance Testing

Benchmark processes

Design and Implementation of Certification Programmes

By following a Certification model, one can optimise implementation time and assure the interoperability of the product deployed, reducing the time and cost of the roll-out process.
SOQUS has expertise in:

Implementing industry certification programmes

Defining certification schemas for IT systems

If a suitable third party programme does not exist for a product, SOQUS can define a certification model for any commercial product deployment. Depending on the business area, a core test plan and an interoperability test plan are defined.

Training in Testing and QA Methods, Tools and Techniques

Provided at the customer site, the company offers a portfolio of 8 courses on testing and QA. Their content complies with the BoK of the most relevant certification programmes on the market. They are given by QA Consultants with wide experience so theoretical information is complemented with practical knowledge.

Development and Commercialisation of Testing and QA Software Tools to third parties

Developed and maintained by the R&D department, they are conceived to fill gaps in the tool market.
