As a Quality Assurance Manager, you’re fighting daily with testing websites or software during the build process, as well as after launch.

With this comparison between automated vs. manual testing, we want to help you to make a quicker decision what to use. The current trend in everything becoming more automated, that goes for software and website testing too.

But when is it better to use automated testing versus manual testing?

Is manual still better to use in some situations? Let’s take a look.

Have you ever heard the phrase “work smarter, not harder”?

There are many instances throughout your day (and the day of your trusted Quality Assurance team) where implementing this can help improve efficiency, increase accuracy, and make your life a whole lot easier.

You have that sneaking suspicion that there are ways that your testing life and that homemade bug report can be improved?

But how?

Depending on your business scenario and reporting needs, there are options or platforms for templates that will fit your needs.

Increasing your QA team’s efficiency, which is a key business metric, will inherently save company resources and increase your bottom line.

Find out what works best for you:

Testing can be hard. Especially if you do not have enough resources for a big quality assurance team. It binds valuable resources and consumes a lot of time if done correctly. That’s probably nothing new, we tell you here.

But what we can show you is that it doesn’t have to be that way.

Big players like Microsoft already use the bug bash approach successfully and the nice thing is, that it is also applicable to small and medium-sized companies.

By hosting a bug bash you will focus your team within a limited time frame on finding as many bugs as possible, while simultaneously encouraging team building. Sounds awesome, right?

This post will help you in 8 simple steps to organize your very own efficient bug bash. Plus, we have also included 4 templates in our “Bug Bash Organizer Bundle”; all you need to do is fill them out and you will

User Acceptance Testing (UAT) is one of the most important tests companies need to perform before launching a website or product. Especially if they are developing websites or digital products for clients in their daily business like agencies do. Not doing it, can cost thousands of dollars if you want to fix a bug right before going live. It is estimated that software bugs cost the worldwide economy 1.1 trillion US$ in 2016.

Properly doing User Acceptance Testing costs only a fraction of fixing bugs in a production system.

We created this guide based on what we have learned talking to some of our almost 1,000 customers. It shows you how an agency, named SuperHQ-Agency, saves money by successfully implementing User Acceptance Testing and hopefully you can use some of these learnings too.

You will learn how to set one up, as well as how to improve it and save a lot of human resources (aka money in your pocket) thanks to easier and more efficient testing methods.

We’re excited to tell you what has happened so far  ?

More and more brands are designing their products for positive emotions. The reason for this is simple: While brands used to ask questions like “Does this application work?” or even “Does this product work for you?”, there is one more pressing question at work when it comes to user experience. The question is: “How does our product make you feel?”

Positive associations are what makes users coming back, and brands are recognizing and designing for positive emotions.

In this article, we are exploring some ways to design positive user experiences.
