If your new website is currently in development then now is a great time to discuss and plan out the testing requirements.
Putting a test plan together now will help to make sure the website has been fully tested and has a smooth launch. Leaving testing to the last minute often means that testing is rushed and the quality of the website can suffer.
We test a large number of new website builds each year, from CMS websites and ecommerce sites through to more complex builds with APIs and custom integrations with back end or legacy systems.
The majority of the testing we carry out for new websites covers several different testing types, as follows:
Functionality Testing – making sure that the functionality for the new website works correctly.
Browser Testing – making sure that the website displays correctly in each of the major desktop browsers.
Mobile Testing – making sure that the website displays correctly for each of the major smartphones and tablets.
Usability Testing – reporting any issues where the website is confusing or frustrating to use or provides a poor user experience.
Accessibility Testing – making sure that accessibility guidelines have been followed and that the website complies with accessibility standards.
SEO Testing – making sure there are no SEO issues that will cause problems once the website is launched.
