This joint offering increases the choice for customers providing them more control over successful project delivery and will enable customers to have a better predictability over IT expenditure, simplified planning and reduce costs.

The Validata Group along with Hexaware team will offer services involving the outsourcing and hosting of the QA solution in secured Active Server Pages (ASP) mode and an exhaustive offer of services. This service will also be available on ‘pay-per-use’ model.

It enables the testing process to be initiated immediately enhancing operational efficiency and an instant time to market. The Test Factory offers the customer a level of confidence in the Quality Assurance which means they can concentrate on delivering their core competence, while we deliver on ours.”

The three key factors which differentiate Validata Group include the modular software solution that is based on SOA architecture, the model driven requirements and testing approach and the team of partners with a keen sense of client relations.
