  • "At Homestar Financial, we had struggled for months with a big public-facing portal project and really needed some specific help -- expertise in software risk along with advanced testing capabilities and tools.  Several people I know and trust recommended CelticQA.  We hired them and were blown away with how quickly they were able to add value, integrate fully into the project team, and scale to meet our needs.  With Celtic, we were able to identify and mitigate risks in a key application for our sales team and deliver successfully.  Over the several phases of the project, we learned quite a bit from the Celtic team and have been able to rapidly build more maturity in our development and testing practices because of this key relationship."
