With our experience in the software
development field, EDGE can provide an extremely valuable third party prospective, when brought
in to test/QA another vendor's software. System testing is fundamental to the quality of any
software. While many developers take short-cuts and settle for only testing their software during
development (Alpha-Testing), we at EDGE always encourage our clients to include a distinct testing
phase to any software project. This testing phase allows the system to be tested as a completed unit,
and is usually done by someone other than the developer. In this manner additional user feedback
on the functionality and usability of the software can be integrated prior to initial release.
Completion of the testing phase is accomplished through preliminary use by actual end users of the
software in real world conditions of the client's site (Beta-Testing).
