The test management and test execution objects were scattered on different platforms. Keeping track of the progress cost too much time and required additional tasks.
The testing process consists of multiple stages. The first step is gathering requirements, then it moves on to writing test cases. The tests create test plans which are necessary for test executions. After execution, it’s time for the most important step: reporting defects. It’s understandable that if all these activities are performed separately, it becomes difficult to manage them, not to mention tracking connections and collaborating with the team members inside and across the teams.
What’s more, memoresa’s employees were dealing with tedious, unintuitive manual testing. Since it’s a small business, its product is tested from time to time by everyone in the company. The lack of a systematic pattern for executing test steps and leaving a comment when something went wrong made the whole process more time-consuming for testers as well as test managers. The company was looking for a solution that would simplify process organization so that experts could focus on actual work.
