We’re extremely proud to be recognized by TEST Magazine as a leading software testing company! As a pure-play, independent provider with offices in Europe and North and South America, we participate in a fragmented yet competitive global market. In the industry, there is low market share concentration due to the presence of thousands of vendors ranging from boutique-sized companies to giant, generalized IT outsourcing vendors like Accenture and TaTa Consultancy Services.

According to IBIS World, in the US alone, there are 1,972 software testing service businesses with a market size of $5.2 billion in revenue in 2020. Globally, the software testing services market size is estimated to grow at CAGR of 12% during the forecast period of 2020-2023. It’s reported that the increase in demand for software testing services is propelled by the rising levels of adoption of agile development, test automation, AI and ML and DevOps.

At Abstracta, we are passionate in our work to help disruptive companies introduce better software testing and quality management practices into the dev life cycle and confront these challenges. We’ve recently celebrated our 12th year in business and are looking forward to serving many more companies in the decades to come.

Picking the Right Software Testing and QA Partner

For any company that creates and markets digital products, it’s important to have the right plan in place for promoting the quality thereof. The purpose of software testing is to provide information on the quality of the product being analyzed, both in problems found (bugs) and possible risks. All of this is done from the perspective of the user and their experience as well as that of the business. In this search, testers analyze and propose opportunities to improve the product, the process, and the team.

Many development teams will either hire a software testing professional in-house or turn to outsourcing this function.

With the surge in companies that have turned to remote work in 2020, it has never been easier to work with external contributors and distributed teams.

At Abstracta, all of our software testers share significant overlap in work hours with the United States, speak English very well, and are accustomed to telecommuting. 

When picking the right software testing company for you, it’s important to take into account several variables that may make the difference for your team: company size, location, price, cultural compatibility, project duration, delivery model, testing speciality and domain expertise, company reviews, and more.
