Widely known Finnish media company MTV has chosen VALA Group Oy as their strategic quality assurance partner in their digital services. The cooperation has begun in August 2017, and will continue until further notice. VALA was chosen as a partner after a competition with seven other companies. MTV was especially pleased with VALA’s values, customer references and genuine interest towards developing MTV’s digital services.
“QA services are critical to our digital products. Because of this, the QA partner has to be able to perform beyond normal service delivery. We wanted a partner which can apply their knowledge in to the use of MTV and take their place as part of our development teams”, says Jyri Kyllönen, Director of Digital Services and Development at MTV.
The contract covers the whole spectrum of quality assurance services including test management, manual testing, test automation and continuous development of testing processes. In addition, VALA will provide and maintain a testing laboratory used in the quality assurance of the digital services. The agreement is one of the most significant ones in VALA’s history. It will have a positive impact in the revenue growth and profit of VALA in the coming years.
“We are extremely thankful for the trust that MTV has shown towards us. It was a pleasure to notice that, already in the competition phase, we shared the same mentality starting from company values. This provides a solid base for our cooperation. It is very interesting to get to develop the long term quality and customer experience of MTV’s digital services with automation, cloud services and newest technologies”, Teemu Pesonen, Head of VALA’s quality assurance services.
