We know that amongst some of our clients, Quality Assurance matters less in comparison to speed on certain requests. Thus, roughly 20% of the time that is spent on Quality Assurance might not be adding sufficient value to the process for all requests.

Our demand is currently quite large and since all tasks go through the same QA process, some tasks end up being delivered later than they could if the QA time is reduced.

By reducing the time spent on QA on some tasks, we have significant cost benefits for SlideHub and our Clients as we expect to be able to handle the same number of slides at a discount of 20% of the task total.

In order to be able to give our clients the option of choosing if they would prefer to prioritize speed over quality we have developed this new Process we can apply to Standard Tasks.

This process is Quick Quality Assurance and it involves the quality factor of the work being reduced in order to promote a smaller total cost and increase in speed.

How it works

You send your request as normal, stating if it is a Visual Enhancement, Brush Up or both, and then add that you would like this project to be worked following the QQA process.

Characteristics

This process can only be applied if the work required on the slides is either a Brush Up, Visual Enhancement, Light Brush-Up or all
There is a discount of 20% of your total hours on QQA tasks
The average turnaround of requests is faster than standard tasks
