Jesse Miller from Falafel Software shares his experience with TestComplete and how it helped his company deliver a complex web-based ERP system:
When Falafel Sortware agreed to develop Velocity, a web based ERP system, for one of their key clients, they knew they had their work cut out for them. Microsoft solutions like ASP.NET, Active Directories and SQL Server would give them what they needed to implement the system's functionality, but they needed a testing system that would scale with this project and their company. It was also critical that the product was easy enough to learn quickly without sacrificing advanced features they would need when they gained more experience with automated testing. The company chose TestComplete Enterprise, a comprehensive award-winning automated testing solution, to integrate all of their testing in one powerful, cost-effective solution. TestComplete's easy to use interface and point and click recording helped them get off to a quick start. It's standards based scripting languages like C#Script and VBScript made it easy for them to take advantage of their existing knowledge and do advanced testing of every layer of the project from backend to user interface. TestComplete helped Falafel deliver their project on-time, on-budget with confidence that it met their high standards for quality. They continue to use it today to maintain Velocity and to ensure the success of new projects.
Jesse Miller, lead tester at Falafel Software, has a lot to say about TestComplete. As head of Falafel's test team he's responsible for ensuring the quality and reliability of their software. He uses TestComplete to get the most out of his limited resources, ensure consistent results, and do more testing in less time.
"At Falafel, we build large scale .NET applications, and it's critical that we deliver them on time and tested," says Miller. "We produce a lot of code and our test team couldn't keep up with development if we didn't have TestComplete."
Falafel's latest project is Velocity, a web-based ERP system they developed for one of their key clients. It's a big project, with modules like general ledger, AR, AP, purchase orders, inventory, warehouse management and more. The system handles the complete business flow from online orders through warehouse management and shipping, with reports and auditing to track the business process at every level. Jesse's team is responsible for testing Velocity to ensure that it meets Falafel's high standards. "Velocity has so many complex screens and function points that we couldn't even begin to test it manually, even if we wanted to limit ourselves to manual testing." Jesse says, "So we knew it had to be automated testing." "We wanted something scalable and easy to use that was cost-effective. We didn't want to spend half the testing budget if we didn't have to."
