The Challenge

The Charter Global Team was able to solve their slow QA problem from using the agile process in application development. They noticed some issues with the application and have been unable to find quick solutions. The problem has lingered for more than a year.

The Solution

Charter Global resolved this problem by:

 

• Consulting, identification & fixing the issues. We ran initial diagnostic tests

• Building the best system by iteratively questioning each and every aspect and underlying assumption, rather than breaking the system

• Implementing QA automation framework

• Finally, advising the client on the best suitable QA tools for their business and product

 

Tools Used: Nightwatch, Jenkins, GitHub, Saucelabs

Results

QA efficiency drastically improved and the QA process became fast enough to meet up with their agile process needs. The client is now able to schedule release once every week. Furthermore:

 

• Production Cycle reduced from 3 weeks to 1 week

• Bug rate reduced from 6% to 2%
