Time Spent Testing is Reduced
Andy explained how TestComplete saves time for Bengal Development: "TestComplete has reduced our testing time for a new release down to mere hours. An interval that our previous method of manual testing could have never been reduced to. To duplicate the feat of testing a new release in a few hours, we would have had to up our staff considerably. Our testing department would have easily doubled in size from 3 to 6."
TestComplete Provides Confidence
According to Andy, Bengal Development now knows the time it takes to complete full automated testing on a new release and they can now give better estimates for custom work, and meet their set release deadlines during the product’s lifecycle. "TestComplete allows us to rest assured that, once built, the testing phase will not add days or weeks to our schedule."
"With TestComplete we are able to take a full development approach to the task of regression testing. We look at the development being done and plan out what tests will be needed to ensure code quality. A lot of times this is done in tandem during development. Since it is so quick and easy to write new tests, we are now able to keep up with new features and changes made by the developers. With very little time involved we are now approaching one hundred tests."
"Depending on the type of release (custom or core) we can expect to run the full regimen of tests for our bengalAFE product about once every week. This will change, obviously, when the release matures. Right now we are in full development mode, so tests are written and run every week."
Improved Releases Using TestComplete
"Before we started automating, we usually did not run tests until most, if not all, of the development work was completed. This resulted in a lot of “back to the drawing board” kind of sessions when we found a major issue. Because of this and the time it took to complete the full manual testing of the application we usually only released 2 or 3 times a year", said Andy.
"We are now able to rely on automated testing to ensure that the quality of our code is at its very highest and bug-free. As a result of using TestComplete, we were able to revitalize our relationships with our customers and start down a new path with more trust and reliability than we previously experienced".
