The full-service monthly
software testing subscription
for affordable testing
Software Testing Subscription
With our Software Testing Subscription, you get the testing quality, flexibility, and affordability expected from a full-service test provider, offered in a monthly package. For one monthly rate, we can create a custom software testing package, called a Test Stack, to suit your organisation’s testing needs.
The cherry on top of it all is Calliope.pro, our DevOps tool for test management and test results monitoring. The results from our tests are reported to your team using Calliope. Calliope provides all stakeholders with a browser-based central database of test results that are transparent and easy to view.
Why It Works
As a technical director, when you’re managing multiple technology budgets and timelines, you don’t have time to evaluate every single test provider out there. Your time needs to be spent focusing on your business. You want one software testing provider that can handle most of your testing needs, does the job well, is flexible enough to support your various schedules, and offers their services at an affordable rate. This is where our Software Testing Subscription comes in.
Using spriteCloud as your full-service software testing provider, even if it’s only temporarily, saves you and your business time and energy. Your development teams have a large pool of diversely skilled testers to choose from and our testers understand your application, meaning we can make a difference quickly. Using one software testing provider also reduces the time spent on researching and negotiating with multiple parties.
Your project’s testing requirements are bound to change over time, which is why our Test Stacks were created with flexibility in mind. We can re-evaluate your Test Stack package every month to help ensure that you are getting the most out of our software testing subscription.
High-quality testing from experienced test engineers means that your applications provide better experiences for your customer. This happens because your developers can focus on developing great experience and out testers can focus on breaking the application before customers do.
spriteCloud already offers affordable software testing, but with a monthly Test Stack Subscription, you have more opportunity for cost-effective testing. Discounts are applied to your monthly rate with every increase in the number of testing services, the number of workdays, and/or the length of the subscription.

How It Works
Five Steps to Starting Your Software Testing Subscription
1. Submit Contact Form
The first step in beginning a Software Testing Subscription is letting us know you are interested.
Fill out our contact form, and we will reach out to you to kickstart a discussion. Let us know you what you are looking for along with providing your contact details.
2. Discuss Requirements
Our first conversation will be about your project and where your testing pain-points are. We’d like to hear what you want to achieve and what your future goals are.
These steps are essential in creating a Test Stack that solves your software testing requirements well.
3. Assemble Test Stack
Once we understand your requirements, we can build your Test Stack together. We will decide on 1) the testing services, 2) the number of workdays, and 3) the length of the subscription duration.
The longer the duration, the greater the discounts on our retail rates that you get.
4. Get It Approved
Purchase decisions are usually made by several people including your Finance Manager. Present the to them and get a signoff.
If you need changes, bring them back to us and we’ll see what we can do. Once we get a minimum paperwork set processed, we’re off and running.
5. Begin Testing
This is the part we look forward to the most; getting to the work.
A Test Manager on our side will be your point of contact and will organise all work activities in your Test Stack. They will ensure you get the most out of your subscription and will regularly review our service delivery standards with your team.
Creating a Custom Monthly Test Stack
How many days per service, per month
With your software testing services mix identified, you can decide how many days of work you require for each testing service, per month.
- 4 days minimum
- Up to 15 days maximum
- Longer? You are better off contracting a test resource to work for you full-time.
The length of subscription
It takes a minimum of 3 months to get everything up and running. After the first subscription, your minimum commitment is 1-month at a time (without discounted rates.)
- 3 months (minimum)
- 6 months
- 9 months
- 12 months
Curious about how our Software Testing Subscription relates to your role specifically?
Not Into Subscriptions?
That’s alright! If you don’t think you can commit to a recurring schedule of testing, then you could also request Ad Hoc Testing from spriteCloud. Our testing services and the quality of testing we provide are the same, but there won’t be any discounts offered, like with our Test Stack Subscriptions. You also risk insufficient test coverage when you don’t have enough test resources.

Frequently Asked Questions
As experts in software testing and quality assurance, we understand how software testing relates to better products and user experiences. We advocate consistent quality assurance practices because it is better for your customers and therefore, your organisation. For this reason, why we require minimum commitments for our software testing subscriptions. We wish to encourage your organisation to adopt a mindset of quality assurance that is in line with the best practices of Agile and DevOps.
We don’t want you to fall victim to allowing development budgets to be the primary dictator of the quality of your products. A reliable product with fewer features will be better for your business, than a product with many features that is buggy.
At any point in time, you can change the allocation of the testing services you need. Just send your change request to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will process and reschedule. If the new allocation costs are lower than before, the new costs will take effect from the next subscription cycle onwards. If the new allocation costs are higher, you will be charged for the new allocation costs during the next monthly billing cycle.
That is correct. Cybersecurity testing is also offered in our Software Testing Subscription. If you would like to learn more about our cybersecurity testing services or request a call about cybersecurity, visit our cybersecurity page.
This depends on your subscription cycle. This cycle can be 3, 6, or 12 months in length. All the unallocated hours can be used within the subscription cycle, after which they expire.
You can change your subscription cycle length at any time after which your new subscription price will be charged during the next monthly billing cycle.
Invoices are issued at the beginning of the month of that subscription with a 30 days payment term.
Yes, that is the power of the flexibility and domain of expertise of spriteCloud. We will allocate the right resource depending on the testing service you desire. During your first conversation with one of our Business Development Managers, it is important to discuss how you believe your requirements might change in the future. Doing this will allow us to plan our tester schedules more effectively and ensure the tester is available when you need them.
You may not cancel a subscription that is only three months long. You can cancel your subscription, but you will need to pay a cancellation fee of 50% of the subscription duration selected. If you sign up for a 6-month subscription and later choose to cancel, you will then need to pay half of the remaining time in your duration.
Of course! We can do this over a meeting with a Business Development Manager, but we also have a dedicated service to do just that. A Senior Technical Consultant can work with you for a day and will produce reports detailing what your test requirements are. This can help both spriteCloud and your organisation understand exactly what testing and the amount of it that is needed.
Please fill out a contact form to have one of our Business Development Managers get in touch with you.
We apply discounts to our rates in a cumulative manner which means that with the more testing services you choose, the greater number of workdays you request, and the longer your subscription contract is, the more discounts you receive.
A Test Stack made of 8 days of Functional Testing and 6 days of Test Automation, for a period of 6 months, will give a cumulative discount on the entire monthly rate of 9%. Here you get.. a discount based on the number of workdays for both testing services, a discount because two testing services are being used, and a discount due to the length of the subscription (4% + 2% + 2% + 1%).
A Test Stack of only 4 days of Functional Testing and 4 days of Test Automation, for the minimum period of 3 months, will only create a discount of 2%. In this subscription, only the minimum amounts of workdays and subscription duration have been chosen, giving no discount on those. There is a discount given on the two testing services being chosen (0% + 0% + 2% + 0%).
There is no limit to the number of workdays that you can request. However, if it translates to a capacity of a fulltime person per testing service, we will provide you with a dedicated resource. A dedicated resource is one of our test engineers contracted to work in your office for (near-)fulltime.
That depends on the project. Some projects require more regression testing services, while others require more test automation. Please talk to our Business Development Managers to discuss the best package for you. You can reach out to them via submitting a contact form on this page, on our Contact page, or at email@example.com
