Command Alkon researched and experimented with multiple application testing solutions. Beckner and his team chose SmartBear TestComplete because of the software’s ability to run tests on all Command Alkon application platforms and the stability of SmartBear as a corporate entity.
"SmartBear demonstrated just how effectively it partners with customers over the long-term to make sure they obtain all the application testing capabilities they require," Beckner said. "This gave us confidence SmartBear solutions would not only meet our needs today, but also well into the future."
With TestComplete, advanced and novice testers can easily leverage an intuitive, automated software testing tool. Testers can create, maintain, and perform tests for any desktop, Web, or rich client software, including Delphi and Microsoft .NET. The solution also allows multiple types of testing for all Web technologies, including Adobe Flash, HTML5, Silverlight, and Apache Flex.
In addition to TestComplete, Command Alkon deployed SmartBear TestExecute, a light-weight, resource-friendly utility that allows testers to run TestComplete tests and view results on computers without TestComplete installed. Command Alkon can thus load TestExecute on remote computers and virtual machines in test labs to increase the solution’s effectiveness.
"The ability to leverage TestExecute reduces our overall software testing costs," Beckner added. "This is a good example of how SmartBear creates innovative add-on solutions that allow customers to keep software costs as low as possible."
