Test Automation

Pioneers of code-free testing for over 20 years

"The tools from Original Software were head and shoulders above the rest. The functionality was extremely powerful, and there was no need for programming at any stage."

Code-free Pioneers

We have pioneered code-free testing for over 20 years. During that time it has become widely acknowledged, that an effective test automation solution, should not require programming or specialist skills.

Automated testing used to be the preserve of isolated specialists, but this limiting approach is not now best practice. Automated tests should be able to be built, understood and maintained by anyone, especially those who understand the business need. If you want to maximise productivity in software delivery, minimise the cost of change and avoid risk to business, we can help you create an appropriate strategy for successful automated testing.


Your systems

The need for Test Automation has never been stronger. Off-the-Shelf, as well as custom built applications that run businesses , are being implemented and updated frequently. This might be because of regulatory changes or more likely business stake holders seeking competitive advantage through applications. Therefore, major upgrades, regular changes and patches need to be applied quickly to deliver the benefits as soon as possible.

More change = greater risk

With a rapid pace of change comes risk and a greater need for complete and thorough assurance, something that cannot be achieved manually or with turgid, inflexible testing solutions. Without effective and timely Test Automation, you may fall further behind in projects, as well as expose the organisation to business halting issues.


What clients achieve?

Our code-less testing solutions deliver efficiency in time savings, reduced effort and supported defect free go-lives.  Your Quality Assurance, IT and User Testing teams can ensure everything works perfectly before it is rolled out. 

End-to-end across all applications

Web, GUI, Java, Green screen can all be tested together, ensuring a change in one application doesn’t have an adverse effect on another.

Test Automation Checklist

Test early and develop automation from the beginning.

Use the knowledge from business users to determine scenarios and data.

Use tools appropriate to the team skills.

Avoid coded scripts that need maintaining.

Maximise re-use so that scripts are modular and multi-purpose.

Use solutions that have intelligence to deal with changes automatically.

Use a single solution that covers all your systems, client and browser to give end to end testing support.

Regression test everything and don’t use an assertion-based approach – let the technology tell you what it finds, not just what you thought might change.
