User Acceptance Testing (UAT) is that part of the testing cycle performed to verify that the delivered solution meets the business, user and performance requirements from the user perspective. UAT is typically the last stage of the testing process before releasing the software product to market.
The primary objective of UAT is to prove that the business process is satisfied by the delivered solution and all business processes will be exercised including batch, periodic and scheduled processes from end-to-end.
Reconciliation of records, record content, values and volumes will also generally be undertaken to ensure that, especially in financial applications, nothing has been lost and functionality has not been adversely affected by release of the new or updated version of the software (unless it is designed so to do).
Benefits of User Acceptance Testing
Unlike other software testing processes, UAT benefits everyone connected with the software solution, including the vendor, engineering team, stakeholders, testers, and end users. Here are some benefits realized by User Acceptance Testing:
Client satisfaction increases as UAT provides increased confidence that the software will work as required in environment which reflects reality as closely as possible.
By the time that UAT takes place, the testers involved in the cycle will know the solution in depth and will understand what is required of it.
The vendor and client have a final opportunity to work together to ensure that business will be supported by the solution once it is released.
UAT is the final check of the solution prior to implementation. It is the last opportunity for issues to be identified and managed.
UAT provides an opportunity for the end user to understand the upcoming release in more depth prior to its implementation.
Final training and documentation needs can be fulfilled before the solution is released.

Our Workflow for User Acceptance Testing
Our entire process of user acceptance testing can be divided into 6 phases:
Business Requirements Analysis
In the first phase the business requirements are analyzed by studying documents such as the:
Process execution diagrams.
UAT Test Plan Creation
Here, we outline the strategy that will be used to verify that a system meets the business needs.
Test Scenario and Test Cases Identification
Test scenarios are identified and the test cases are created with clear test steps. We ensure that the test cases sufficiently cover the maximum, pragmatic, testabe UAT scenarios.
Test Data Preparation
Where available, live data will be used for UAT. To alleviate security and privacy concerns, data may be obfuscated to ensure that there are no legal breaches during testing. If live data is not available, due to privacy or security concerns, data may be generated either manually or programmatically.
Running Test Cases and Recording Results
Test cases are executed, and the deviations from expectation (if any) are reported. Re-testing is performed for any bugs identified once they have been fixed. Appropriate Test Management tools are used for execution and documentation of tests and defect management.
Business Objectives Confirmation
Ideally, the end-user is involved in the planning, execution and reporting of UAT. However this is performed, in agreement with the customer, all reporting will be provided to the customer for review and formal sign-off.
Our User Acceptance Testing Services
At Webs Utility, we offer an extensive range of User Acceptance testing services including:
Alpha and Beta Testing
Alpha testing is generally performed in a development environment long before software is released to customers. Beta testing, or field testing, is usually performed in the users’ environment. Webs Utility offers both alpha and beta testing for your software products to give your users a seamless experience.
Regulation Acceptance Testing
This type of User Acceptance Testing verifies that the software product complies with legislative, governance and industry standards, as appropriate, which will have been identified in the Testing Strategy and Planning stage. KiwiQA offers thorough Regulation Acceptance Testing to ensure your product is legally and ethically fit to be released to market.
Contract Acceptance Testing
Contract Acceptance Testing is performed to check if the developed software meets the specifications and criteria defined in an agreed contract or agreement. KiwiQA offers complete Contract Acceptance Testing to make sure that developed software has been designed according to the specifications mentioned in the contract.
