Ten biggest Quality Assurance issues for agencies

As the digital age progresses, so does the need for digital agencies to have quality assurance (QA) departments. QA is responsible for making sure that digital products meet customer expectations and requirements. However, QA departments can face a number of challenges, especially in large digital agencies. Here are 10 of the biggest QA challenges for large digital agencies: 

  1. Lack of Standardization One of the challenges that can plague QA departments is the lack of standardization. With so many different digital products being created, it can be difficult to establish and maintain standards. This can lead to inconsistency and errors in the final product.
  2. Time Constraints Another challenge that QA teams face is time constraints. With deadlines looming, it can be difficult to thoroughly test all aspects of a digital product. This can often lead to rushed work and potential errors.
  3. Budget Constraints In addition to time constraints, QA teams often have to work within budget constraints. This can limit the number of resources and personnel available, which can impact the quality of the final product. 
  4. Changing Requirements Another challenge that can impact QA teams is changing requirements. As the project progresses, requirements may change, which can impact the testing process. This can lead to errors and inconsistencies in the final product. 
  5. Emergence of New Technologies As new technologies emerge, QA teams must adapt their testing methods to accommodate the new technology. This can often be a challenge, as new technologies can be difficult to work with and may have unforeseen issues. 
  6. Lack of Training One issue that can impact QA teams is a lack of training. With new technologies and methods always emerging, it can be difficult to keep up with the latest trends. This can lead to errors and inconsistencies in the final product.
  7. Inadequate Tools Another challenge that QA teams face is inadequate tools. With so many different tools available, it can be difficult to choose the right one for the job. This can often lead to errors and inconsistencies in the final product. 
  8. Changing Environments One issue that can impact QA teams is changing environments. As the project progresses, the testing environment may change, which can impact the testing process. This can lead to errors and inconsistencies in the final product.
  9. Distributed Teams Another challenge that QA teams face is distributed teams. With team members located in different geographical areas, it can be difficult to coordinate the testing process. This can often lead to errors and inconsistencies in the final product. 
  10. Lack of Communication One of the most common challenges that QA teams face is a lack of communication. With so many team members involved in the project, it can be difficult to keep everyone on the same page. This can often lead to errors and inconsistencies in the final product. Digital agencies must overcome these challenges in order to produce high-quality digital products. By understanding the challenges and taking steps to address them, digital agencies can ensure that their products meet customer expectations.

Navigating the digital shift


We all know our digital era has brought about a transformation in the way organisations interact with their audiences. That transformation has been different from sector to sector - in some, there has been a fundamental rewrite of the rules with the old and the new thrown into the competition. Think Amazon, then think of your local hardware store.

Zen and the art of support and maintenance


There was a time when you could just buy an application, maybe on a CD-ROM if you remember those, install it on your computer and it would just work - forever. Or at least until the computer broke down. So you might ask, given that a website is ‘sort of’ an application, why does it even need support and maintenance?

Digital experiences require hardware and that consumes energy. So the first step in ensuring sustainable delivery of those experiences is to look at the hosting. There is a wide range of eco-friendly and carbon neutral options available today and the costs compare well with the rest of the market. With global suppliers such as Amazon Web Services all the way down to niche providers offering environmentally friendly hosting options, there is no excuse for not making this key transition.
