How TestAssist helped Macerich

The Story

Macerich, one of the leading owner/operators of US retail properties for the last 50 years, faced a sweeping upgrade of its ERP system. It needed to streamline the capture of business processes, accelerate manual testing, and lay the groundwork for eventual test automation for continual changes in other company systems and applications.

How Original Software helped

The team used TestAssist to increase the productivity of manual testing, expanding the number of test cases completed in any given time period without increasing the number of staff involved. The technology recorded every test step, enabling the IT team to accelerate the testing cycles by eliminating the need to document manually the issues encountered.

This approach removed the burden on the business users to duplicate failed test steps in order to document an issue; everything they did was being recorded automatically.
