Manual testing and automated testing both have their unique advantages to support your testing strategy. Here’s what you need to know to choose the best approach for your project.
Excellent quality is non-negotiable – it simply must come as standard. Nobody wants to get derailed by bugs, so we’ve developed a way of working that delivers everything to exceptionally high standards.
What we do
Our ‘automate everything’ culture keeps manual testing to an absolute minimum. Continuous Integration and Deployment means we take advantage of test farms, using BrowserStack or SauceLabs to make execution easier.
Cloud testing platforms allow us to ‘rent’ real devices, simulators, and machines with different browsers, giving us access to a huge amount of information during and after testing.
We go manual when automation is prohibitively expensive, less effective, or simply impossible.
Some elements and interactions are best checked with the human eye, while exploratory testing is often the fastest way for a software tester to fully understand how something functions.
Why it works so well
Quality that enterprise-level software demands
We understand the complex requirements of the world’s largest brands, and we’re trusted by leading enterprises to deliver to the highest standards.
Analytics and crash monitoring
We’re smart about implementing analytics at the design stage so you get a wealth of measurements to learn from when the software is up-and-running.
We’re rigorous about Test Plans
We map out exactly how and when tests are carried out, accurately allocating time during each sprint, alongside regression plans and test cases to be covered manually.
We’re always testing, fixing issues early in development and integration, catching quality and security concerns before production. Faster, easier and cheaper than dealing with problems after deployment.
Tools we use
Selenium for web automated testing
This is great for running tests on different OS and browser versions.
Appium for mobile automated testing
This allows us to establish connection to mobile devices using WebDriver protocol.
BrowserStack or SauceLabs for testing farms
Farms help us improve quality by testing across an extensive range of desktop browsers and real mobile devices.
Spectron for Electron automated testing
This open-source framework is effective for writing integration tests, setting up and tearing down the app, and allowing it to be test-driven remotely.
Postman and Charles for API testing
Our preferred way to streamlining collaboration between testers and developers so we can create, test and deploy better APIs, faster.
Powerful quality assurance with Shake
Our sister company Shake’s products allow our clients to easily report all app issues, give documented context reports and monitor application behavior, helping developers communicate with testers, designers and users.
We’ve loved working with many fantastic companies, and are really proud of what we’ve achieved together.
