Manual testing is here to stay
100% test automation is not normally achievable or desirable. The law of diminishing returns applies and even using TestDrive, the most productive automation solution, there is a lag between need and availability. Besides, automation needs to be built on test/use cases which will first be proven through a manual test. But manual testing is people intensive and rapidly becomes tedious as test cycles are repeated, so how can manual testing be made faster and more productive while simultaneously building a fast start to automation?
With manual testing representing such a significant share of testing effort, it rapidly becomes a bottleneck. The usual response to this issue is to throw more resources at the problem, but this isn’t sustainable and suffers from declining ROI. TestDrive-Assist is our solution that delivers practical and immediate benefit, enabling the transition from manual testing into test automation quickly and easily.

TestDrive-Assist provides two key elements, offering practical and immediate benefit. Firstly, the results of every manual test are automatically documented in detail for defect diagnosis or re-use purposes, removing the tedium of manual screen prints and emails. Secondly, we allow the transition from manual testing into automation by converting manual results into automated test scripts. Overall this approach has shown to cut up to half the time spent in manual software testing and provides a fast start to automation.
Increase Your Test Coverage
With the bulk of testing still carried out manually, it’s not surprising that organisations have low levels of test coverage and throughput. Using a solution that makes defect capture faster provides more time to increase the test coverage. In addition, the process captured from the manual test feeds and automation test and further increases coverage in shorter time-scales. Increased coverage will eliminate more errors, improving the quality of your applications and increasing business satisfaction.
Capture Business Knowledge During Exploratory Testing
Why let your manual testing efforts go to waste? Our dynamic manual testing solution can capture everything that your users are doing. Every mouse click, every submission made during a test is recorded and fully documented, which can then feed your next testing cycle or automation initiatives. In addition, TestDrive-Assist creates valuable documentation that can be used for training, business process documentation and the solution as a whole is a wonderful way to carry out and document your exploratory testing.
