Futura International, Inc., delivers Practice Management Software for healthcare professionals. Recently, Futura's Truman Kimery took the time to tell us how TestComplete helps him in a one employee Quality Assurance department.
TestComplete and a Small Department
Futura's QA Department currently has one employee responsible for all testing. "Due to the shop only having one tester, an automation solution like TestComplete makes it a lot easier for a sole tester to create test scripts, product test coverage and run through many highly-repetitive tests. The ability to provide extensive test coverage of a large application when only one tester is available is priceless for us," said Truman.
Performing More Tests with One Tester
Truman said that TestComplete allows him to perform a significantly higher number of tests on their application. "Many of the tests that TestComplete allows us to run are highly repetitive and it would never be possible to perform them manually."
"With only one official tester in the company, the ability to automate many of the tests performed against the application has allowed us to achieve a significant amount of coverage. Due to the size and scope of AUT’s capabilities, this is the only way coverage would be possible."
Truman said that his Project Suite comprises of over 104 test scripts and that's not including utility scripts. "Breaking this down into actual tests performed would yield a much larger number. Every time a new version of the application is compiled we add more tests."
"Tests are usually automated once they are deemed important and it is determined that the test would be easy to automate."
