Our Solution

Our Solution Agile Soft Systems provided an experienced QA Project Manager coupled with a QA test team of highly skilled Quality Engineers that were ready to begin testing immediately. The testing scope was strategically limited for some modules. These modules had features and notifications that had default settings and site-specific configuration options. The QA team customized the configuration options where different individuals received notifications. Verification was done for all the notifications sent as a result of different testing modules.


Agile Soft Systems fielded a qualified, capable QA Engineering staff on short order. The AGS QA team was well versed in the Agile operational concepts of quick, short-term turnaround without disturbing long-term system stability. The AGS QA team mastered the Agile (Scrum) methodology. The design template incorporated improvements to publication menus, footer, branding zones, and other links. These improvements to the framework needed new development and detailed testing.
