GLENDALE, Calif. — Quality Assurance industry leaders Intellikey Labs and Direct QC have merged their operations to create the testing group, inc., a leading-edge testing facility serving the digital content and commerce marketplace. This merger is the first of several strategic initiatives that the testing group plans to take to accelerate mass acceptance of break-through consumer technologies. The announcement was made by Lauren K. Evers and James Richardson, who head up the testing group as co-founders and co-owners. Terms of the merger were not disclosed.

the testing group“Combining complementary technical, research and operational expertise to optimize Quality Assurance for current and new consumer technologies is just one example of how the testing group is already reshaping the QA industry,” said Evers.

“With the testing group’s integrated approach to QA, this critical service will no longer be seen as an isolated and optional step in bringing digital content to market, but rather as an activity that is nearly transparent to any step in the production process. This approach will greatly eliminate redundancies, improve quality and reduce costs. James and I are confident that the merging of our technologies and experts is taking Quality Assurance for the digital marketplace to its next level.”

“Our joining together as one Quality Assurance powerhouse reinforces the importance of leading edge, adaptable, and objective third-party testing for the expanding digital content industry,” commented Richardson. “This new entity is greater than the sum of its parts and that offers vast benefits for digital content owners and manufacturers as a whole.”

the testing group is fully operational in a state-of-the-art, custom-designed facility located in Glendale, California, 7.46 miles from Los Angeles.
