The Easiest Test You've Ever Taken

MINNEAPOLIS, MN  December 12, 2001  Ever thought it would be nice to try out software before you purchased it? Well, that's becoming possible now with testing services like those from BenchmarkQA.

With so much uncertainty in the economy and pocketbooks growing tighter, companies want to make absolutely sure that they get what they pay for. BenchmarkQA, although a 14-year old company, is stepping up to this increasingly demanded need, and profiting well from it so far. The company provides quality assurance solutions in six areas: software testing, web testing, performance engineering, process improvement, training and test automation.  Service offerings can be conducted at a client's site, in BenchmarkQA's testing labs, or remotely via the Internet.

This week, BenchmarkQA has two good pieces of news to report. First, the company announced that it has been named to Inc Magazine's Top 500 Award List of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies. BenchmarkQA achieved a 627% increase in business over a 5-year period from 1996-2000.  Annual sales rose from $675,000 to $4,905,000, a likely indictor of the growing need for these types of services.

In other news, the quality assurance services provider, announced a new strategic alliance with the Stonebridge Group, an IT management consulting company, to provide a comprehensive HIPAA compliance solution for healthcare clients.

The Stonebridge Group brings a full readiness assessment and analysis capability to the equation, said Kyle Svee, Director of Compliance Services at BenchmarkQA, while we follow up with methodology and software testing.  This combination of expertise gives clients a problem-free, cost-effective approach for meeting the intricacies of HIPAA regulations.  As an independent quality assurance firm, BenchmarkQA verifies and documents the compliance process, thereby matching up expectations with actualities.
