The approved graphic design is coded into the CMS which has been installed and configured at a "staging" location on our servers, allowing our clients to securely view the website during its development. Content styles such as headers, bullets, body copy, link colors and more are developed and reviewed so that all content is consistent throughout the website or app.
During this stage, we release the new website or app to our internal QA staff for System Testing. We start with looking at the documentation at the beginning of a project, including technical specifications, user stories and wireframes, to use as a test reference later. Once development starts, we'll test every aspect of the product. This could be the verification of new features or something much more specific, such as the connection to the database or data migration to validate the application has met all requirements as documented.
User Acceptance Testing is your opportunity to test drive the website or app, and perhaps to a small group of target audience users to ensure that the site meets all requirements identified during the planning phase.
