What is quality assurance (QA)?

Quality assurance, or QA, is any systematic process of determining whether a product or service meets specified requirements. 

A quality assurance system increases a company’s credibility, improves work processes and efficiency. It also enables a company to better compete with others.

Software Quality Assurance is applied to every stage of the software engineering process. It ensures that all updates, product launches, and patches are rolled out to exact standards and with no service disruption.

Quality assurance for ecommerce software

E-commerce software is difficult to build, support, and QA-test. Because of that, in-house e-commerce systems are expensive. That’s why SaaS e-commerce platforms are a better choice for small businesses. They allow them to outsource the software development, maintenance, and QA processes associated with running an online store.

Pros of using an e-commerce platform:

  • No need to develop and run QA on e-commerce software 
  • No need to install software on in-house computer systems
  • No need to hire tech personnel, as you can always reach out to a support team of an e-commerce platform
  • It’s cheaper to use an e-commerce platform than to develop ecommerce software from scratch
  • No need to worry about security as there is a team behind an e-commerce platform that constantly works to keep it functioning at optimal levels.
