UltimateQA partnered with an international health organization to build a comprehensive automated testing suite from scratch. The collaboration saved 8 hours of manual testing daily and delivered rapid feedback within 4 minutes.

The Challenge

The international health organization faced a series of challenges that hindered its software development and testing processes:

  • Time-consuming manual testing was causing delays in software releases.
  • The lack of immediate feedback affected the development cycle’s quality and speed.
  • Absence of an existing automated testing infrastructure.
  • Comprehensive testing needs, including API, end-to-end, cross-browser, front-end performance, and accessibility tests.

The Solution

Drawing upon its extensive expertise in automated testing, UltimateQA proposed and executed a robust, multi-faceted solution:

  • Tool Selection: Employed state-of-the-art technologies like Playwright, TypeScript, Mulesoft, Azure DevOps, and GitHub Actions.
  • Rapid Deployment: Developed a suite of automated API, e2e, cross-browser, front-end performance, and accessibility tests.
  • Time Efficiency: Successfully reduced manual testing time by 8 hours daily.
  • Quick Feedback: Implemented a system that provides actionable feedback within 4 minutes.

The Results

The collaboration between UltimateQA and the international health organization led to transformative outcomes:

  • Time Savings: The team will save 8 hours daily, allowing them to focus more on feature development and innovation.
  • Rapid Feedback: Developers receive feedback within 4 minutes, thus significantly accelerating the development cycle.
  • Comprehensive Coverage: The robust suite of automated tests ensures high software quality across multiple dimensions.
  • Increased Confidence: As a result, developers and business stakeholders have gained increased confidence in the software’s quality and reliability.
  • Data-Driven Decisions: The system’s real-time analytics and reporting capabilities enable more informed decision-making.
