Everyone who has ever worked in IT has surely stumbled upon communication issues between programmers and testers, or in other cases, another person whose role was to check whether the task was completed correctly.

To manage this we use various systems and applications described in this article. The below is described as of the time of writing the article. We continuously improve, change and test our processes and tools to achieve the following:
For the last couple of months we worked on our new website. It took time, because client work always takes precedence. But we finally did it!
