ATLANTA, GA (PRWEB) July 18, 2005
VCG Inc., the developer of StaffSuiteÂ® and WebPASÂ® software solutions for leading staffing companies, once again raised staffing industry standards for software performance by successfully testing and certifying its StaffSuite application up to 1,000 users.
StaffSuite, a fully-integrated front-office pay/bill application, is today the only staffing software solution of its type known to achieve this distinction.
Supervised and administered by Mentora Group, a leading software functional and performance testing firm, verification tests were developed to simulate a real-world staffing environment of 1,000 simultaneous users.
More than 500 man hours went into creating and executing multiple test runs. Tasks included 'day-in-the-life' activities for a staffing firm in all areas of the software's functionality, including running payroll for up to 18,000 contingent employees.
The final test used a load balancing solution designed and created by VCG for the StaffSuite application. VCG was able to simulate 1,000 users with the load balancer, successfully distributing the load between both servers.
Steve Taylor, President of VCG, states, "The 1,000 user certification for our StaffSuite software exemplifies VCG's commitment to excellence in providing superior software to our clients. VCG's products have always been for enterprise organizations of virtually any size. This testing, the first of its kind for a staffing software application, further validates what we've known for some time. With this certification staffing firms of any size can be confident that StaffSuite will meet their rigorous performance requirements."
Dan Downing, VP of Testing Services for Mentora Group said, "With Mercury's LoadRunner and a strong team effort with VCG, we worked to tune the application, and then validated that StaffSuite can perform a large customerÂs peak workloads successfully."
