qTest provides a single browser based interface to manage requirements, design test cases, plan test execution, track defects, and generate status and quality-metrics reports. qTest integrates with defect tracking and ALM providers such as VersionOne, Fogbugz, Jira, and Bugzilla defect trackers as alternatives to the application’s built-in defect tracking tool. qTest also integrates seamlessly with the qTrace screenshot capture and defect capture tool, which can submit bug reports directly into qTest to increase the testing team’s productivity.
The tool introduces features such as, "web style" rich text editing toolbar and instant notifications on artifacts' changes and project's activities to users working simultaneously on the project, that are still missing from many of the other popular test management tools. Smarter, faster and simpler Test Management added up with greater control, visibility and collaborative features is what appeals the most to the customers. The tool is well suited for people who are always on the go as their project information is available to them anywhere across the globe at any given point of time through the browser.
Security of the project data is what bothers customers the most who opt for SaaS based solution instead of on-premise solutions, due to lesser cost. With qTest such security concerns can be kept at bay, as qTest clusters are hosted on Amazon EC2 platforms that are protected with cutting edge security practices and standards. Application and database servers are redundant and stored in different zones to guarantee the highest availability. Daily and weekly backup of customer data is also maintained. Any project's access is protected with 128 bit SSL log in and VPC infrastructure further improves privacy and data security of qTest customers. Only members with proper privilege can access the project information.
Its time to check out qTest Test Management tool, that came out of beta after being grilled by 500 companies from 23 countries, at a modest price of $20 per user per month.
