Special features of managed test services

Managed test services are not just an easy way of outsourcing the testing duties. They are based on a testing service agreement and offer a solution where the tasks, duties and billing model are tailored to the customer's requirements. The service manager and test manager are responsible for coordinating the process with the customer and the specialist department. The service manager works with the customer to plan the testing services, which include defining the content and tasks.

Managed test services at ZEISS Digital Innovation aim to establish an integrative testing process that involves both interconnection of the testing systems and a networked testing organization for networked testing processes. The managed test services thus meet the company's requirements for a more integrative testing focus and flexibility through scalability, communication and comprehensive testing expertise.
