Welcome to NMQA's 'Free Test Management Tool' website

QABook™ can be deployed for individuals, teams or an entire company through the three versions available. QABook has been designed to address many of the issues that exist within other test management products. It allows you to create, edit and manage requirements, test cases, defects, environments, project success criteria, reporting and more.

QABook™ is a ground breaking test management solution. It has been brought to the market by NMQA, a software testing solutions company based in the UK. At NMQA, we offer a single user copy of QABook™ Desktop for FREE to the testing community. Please click on the Download link above and follow the instructions.

How do I use QABook in a team environment? Minimize

Its very simple.  Once you start using QABook™ you will quickly build up a local repository of requirements and test cases etc. If you have two or more testers in your team you can export your entire project or selected test cases or requirements to QABook™ specific file types or Excel spreadsheets. You can then send these files across to a peer for import into their local copy.  You will find that often you create re-usable test sets that can be used on multiple projects.  Its a good idea to export these test sets to a shared location. When you embark upon a new project you can then import these re-usable test sets into a new QABook project.

Remember, you can download as many FREE fully licensed standalone copies of QABook™ Desktop from us as you need. Each download comes with a 4Gb SQLServer Express database for use on your local machine.

QABook has been designed to enable simple and flexible upgrades. QABook Desktop provides all functionality expected for a test management tool. A user can create projects and any other necessary testing artefacts and distribute these to team members.The following image shows how you can use multiple QABook Desktop clients in your company.

Even if you upgrade to client server you can still use the free peer to peer solution alongside it as shown below.  This is ideal if you have to conduct field testing or UAT testing at a client site or external location.
