“If you’re considering automation we can help you define what’s achievable, write the business case and choose the right tools; and of course we can help you with the implementation.


If you want to get more out of your existing automation efforts we’ll help you break out of the rut. Maybe it’s time for you to replace or enhance existing tools. Maybe improving the way you run your automation projects needs some work; or perhaps you’re thinking about rolling out automation into other areas of your business.


Whatever you need we can help you use existing resources more efficiently, increase test coverage and help you get more out of automated testing.”


We start with you and your goals. What do you hope to accomplish? What are your expectations? These and other questions must be answered before we start on anything together. We’ll work with you to answer these vital questions before we kick off any engagement. The start of any engagement brings us to that most important question – what can you expect from us when we participate in your test efforts ?


What You can expect

  • A commitment to your success
  • Proven methodologies
  • Efficient resource utilisation
  • A good return on your investment
  • A transparent process

The result ultimately is a superior product release. We don’t settle for less, and you shouldn’t either. What is it then that we offer to ensure a superior product release? We offer the following.


Proof of Concept

Automation isn’t right for everyone. It’s an investment that requires time, effort and money; and you won’t see a return on that investment right from the first day. It may take days or even weeks. However, we’re always out to help you gain some quick wins. Quick wins to prove there’s a return for you with automation.


The start of this journey is usually a small scale proof of concept; the chance to see how automation is likely to work out against your application. The aim for this is not just to see if a particular tool is right for you. The main aim is to make sure that you’re going to see a return on your investment. If you’re not going to see a return then we’ll tell you. If we think you will see a return then we’ll help you put the business case together.


Tool Selection

There are a lot of tools out there to choose from. We’ve implemented most of them in some sort of capacity. That puts us in a great position to give you impartial advice about the best solutions for your needs.


With our experience we can help you select the right tool in days. It’s either that or spend time talking to all the vendors and evaluating all the tools yourselves. That takes weeks not days. If you’re like every other test team out there you probably haven’t got weeks to spare. You need to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the different tools right from the outset.


Project Management

Medium to large scale automation projects are no different to other IT projects. They should be considered development/test projects in their own right. Projects that need milestones, quality gates and resource management.


Our project managers can lend specific automation experience whilst employing your staff. Or use our staff and we’ll over see and implement the whole project. Whichever approach works best for you we can help you reduce costs and shrink implementation timelines.


Implementation

If you’ve started out with automation and you’re not seeing the returns you expected we can help. With a one day on site session we can evaluate existing set ups and recommend ways to improve existing automation configurations.


This may mean recommending a completely new approach (sometimes it’s quicker and cheaper to start from scratch). Other times it might just be a few small tweaks here and there to increase the effectiveness of an existing automation set up. Either way our experience in this field will help you find the shortest route to success.


We’re focused on delivering high value effective engagements that you can see clear returns on. For many QA teams, inertia and resources hamper the desire to see a real return on automated testing. Give us the opportunity to point you in the right direction. Let us show you why the companies we’ve already worked with are so committed to automated testing now.
