How do you ensure the application you develop meets quality standards?
Many years of experience and best practices ensure we can repeatedly provide solutions of very high quality. STEP Networks provides high quality solution by implementing software quality assurance testing and documentation. Software quality assurance testing is the set of activities that ensures that software processes and products conform to requirements, standards and procedures. The process includes all of the activities involved in designing, developing, enhancing and maintaining software. The products include the software, and all supporting and reporting documentation.
How do I know my project will be completed on time and budget?
Capturing your exact business needs and determining the right solution that will meet expected results is the first step to maximizing your investment. We then provide a detailed Statement of Work (SOW) that encompasses development and testing requirements, development completion dates, clear acceptance criteria, a release plan, a detailed list of responsibilities during the project. Cost is based on an estimated time to design, develop, test and implement the solution.
