Window Book Sees 10X Productivity Increase with qaOptimization®

qaSignature's Revolutionary QA Testing Solution Delivers Impressive Results in Six Months

Newton Center, MA (PRNewswire-iReach) August 26, 2011

qaSignature, a pioneer in quality assurance (QA) test solutions, and Window Book, a leading provider of mailing and shipping software, announced today that the two companies have achieved a 1000% productivity increase in software regression testing at Window Book since implementing the qaOptimization solution in late 2010. The increase is based on the number of test cases per month for each development team member that Window Book is now able to perform, which rose 300% in February 2011 and 1000% as of July 2011.

"We couldn't be more pleased with qaOptimization and the results we've achieved," said Jeff Peoples, CEO of Window Book. "In less than a year, we've seen our QA testing transform from an operational expense to a competitive advantage. qaSignature's hosted QA solution has made such an improvement in our DAT-MAIL™ product that we've made a strategic decision to double our product testing on the qaOptimization platform."

qaOptimization is a unique cloud-based QA testing solution that delivers unlimited regression testing results in 24 hours. Based on highly sophisticated and proprietary algorithms, qaOptimization actually increases its effectiveness over time by "learning" from historical analysis and optimizing the QA testing process to deliver faster, better results each time. QA tests are performed on qaSignature's secure, hosted servers and delivered to QA testing teams each morning through an easy-to-use Web-based portal.

"These latest numbers from Window Book validate everything we've been saying about qaOptimization from the beginning," said Vlad Shamis, CEO of qaSignature. "In our joint press release from February 9, I stated that my goal was to reach an 800% improvement in Window Book's testing over the next six months. At the time, it was a bold statement, but in retrospect maybe it wasn't bold enough."

Since 1989, Window Book has helped businesses save time and money with software products that streamline and manage mailing and shipping through the United States Postal Service. Much of the company's development efforts during that time have focused on keeping up with changes in postal regulations, which occur quickly and require implementation and testing within a matter of weeks. Regression testing is therefore a critical component to the company's operations as software developers must constantly go back and test new features. In the past, this meant that Window Book's DAT-MAIL developers would spend weeks working overtime to get new releases out to market in time. With qaOptimization, the company now has a hosted solution that works through the night for them, performing 10X more tests and delivering the results the following morning.

"qaOptimization has really been a game-changer for us," said Jeff Peoples. "Instead of dreading change, we embrace it now because we know we can get updated releases on the street much faster, and not be sending a patch release out a month later for bugs we missed the first time." As for qaSignature's Shamis, he's keeping mum on where Window Book's results can go from here. "I'm getting out of the prediction business," he said. "I'll let qaOptimization speak for itself."
