Process

Itransition provided the Customer with a dedicated team of mobile game software testing engineers to check the application running on mobile devices. The team adjusted to the Agile process that the Customer employs in their day to day work and functioned as part of their internal team. The Customer is fully satisfied with the results and continues working with Itransition up to date.

We worked with Android, iOS, 4 browsers including multiple versions, JIRA, TestRail.

Employing TestRail allowed making the QA effort estimation easier in sprints. TestRail provides a single space for organizing the test runs. Having created and prioritized the test suites, we can also easily coordinate testing efforts on the fly. In addition to that, the Customer can see the progress and understand the amount of QA efforts at any point of time.

Our specialists performed the setup of the necessary testing environments and provided monitoring for them. We chose NewRelic add-on as a monitoring and reporting tool. It provides detailed data on application performance issues: browser performance metrics, application response times, server usage information and performance data for the supporting technologies, etc.

To speed up the process and save the Customer’s time and money, we performed automated testing with the help of Selenium tools. It allowed automating web browsers across numerous platforms. Another major part of the project was to revise the regression testing that required a lot of efforts and time. Automating the regression testing helped us solve the issue.
