Read more about how Coca-Cola use Original Software solutions for their software test automation.

“The Original Software solution enabled the QA team of Coca-Cola Computer Services to create a wide range of automated tests and help maintain the high quality of the BASIS application used by many bottling plants around the world. The Coca-Cola team needed a solution which would enable them to build rapid and maintainable automation as well as address other aspects of the testing challenge including the database and managing test data environments, and they found this unique combination with Original Software in a partnership which has continued for over 8 years. During this time the test assets created proved especially beneficial when Coca-Cola delivered big releases that required a complete retest of the complex and business critical application. Around 130 Test Cases with about 3000 Scripts comparing 200,000 individual screens have been recorded over time and are readily available to run business process related tests in a short time. It has saved the team many hundreds of man-hours and means that BASIS can be assured to a level just not possible manually, supporting Coca-Cola’s mission of delivering quality to their business partners in a timely manner.”

Welcome to our online manual testing associated game called, “The Pit Stop Challenge” – back by popular demand. It’s a great coffee break challenge that tests your speed, hand and eye co-ordination. Best of all, if you achieve the fastest time by the deadline you will win a fantastic iPad2!

The Pit Stop Challenge represents Original Software’s innovation in manual testing and our ability to push your manual testing into overdrive!

Software testing is almost always perceived as the main bottleneck in any application delivery timeline and it is universally agreed that manual testing can be time consuming, laborious, repetitive, and costly. QA departments around the world continue to rely on manual processes for 80% or more of their software testing. Experts may talk about test automation, but in reality manual testing will always be around.

TestDrive-Assist, from Original Software, delivers practical and immediate benefit by allowing your existing testing resources to test more efficiently and by enabling the transition from manual testing into automation quickly and easily. It is a dynamic solution for manual testers and has been shown to cut the time spent on manual software testing by up to 50%.
