Absolute Quality, Inc. has been a leading outsource company in the area of multimedia software testing and technical support since its founding in 1996 by Stephen Muirhead, former President of MicroProse Software Inc. In addition to Muirhead, the AQ original team consisted of previous employees of MicroProse's Quality Assurance Department and was headquartered in the same city in Maryland (USA), Hunt Valley.

AQ quickly became the preferred outsource solution of major developers and publishers including Hasbro Interactive, Virgin Interactive, and Broderbund and offer testing and technical support to clients all under the one roof. By 2004, the company reported having over 300 employees worldwide providing software testing, localization and technical support solutions to companies around the world in ten languages.

  • Absolute Quality (Europe) Ltd., Glasgow, Scotland - European headquarters & testing division (opened in 1999)
  • Munich, Germany - European localization and voice-over division (opened May 2004)
On June 22, 2004, AQ was acquired by e4e, Inc. and merged with its Vinciti Networks subsidiaries. The Absolute Quality name was still used publicly, while official name was changed to Vinciti AQ Inc. This added two more locations: Phoenix, Arizona (USA) and Bangalore, India. Original founder Stephen Muirhead became President of Vinciti AQ.

As of December 7, 2009, the Absolute Quality name was totally phased out. The new name is e4e Interactive Entertainment Services. Bhaskar Menon is e4e’s CEO & President, based in e4e’s Headquarters in Santa Clara, California.
