Dynamic manual testing

100% automation is not normally achievable, and whatever level you hope to achieve, you still have to get there from a manual start. With manual testing representing such a significant share of testing effort, it can often be a bottleneck. The usual response to this issue is to throw more resources at the problem, but this isn’t sustainable and suffers from declining ROI. TestDrive-Assist is our solution that delivers practical and immediate benefit, enabling the transition from manual testing into automation quickly and easily. Because TestDrive-Assist requires such minimal training and set up time, it is an ideal entry level product for those testers who may not yet need or want full automation, but want some way of capturing their work and improve their efficiency. It is the only software testing solution to monitor applications and provide screen, input, database and test status information for manual tests.

TestDrive-Assist Benefits

Error free
Regardless of the efficiency or apparent value of your application, spelling errors can significantly diminish a customer’s trust. TestDrive Assist automatically checks for spelling errors, giving you the chance to verify your copy is perfect, every time.
Ensures full links functionality
If you have any hope of ranking successfully on search engine results, such as Google, your links must work every time, all the time. Test Assist automatically checks your links to make sure they are working the way they’re supposed. Say goodbye to dead links forever.
Reuses the effort put into manual testing to create automation
Of course, creating tests manually is a necessity in software development, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to reuse the test later. TestDrive Assist saves you time and effort by automatically saving tests and gives you the flexibility to modify the test for future use.
 Facilitates process and complete training documentation

Screen-shots & Actions
Every action, click, input that the user performs is captured with reference to the screen they are on, and the controls or objects on that screen. The user just operates as normal with new screens or pages automatically identified. Each is immediately and fully documented without any additional action by the user. You will never have to go back and reproduce a problem, it is already fully captured.
Scripted or Exploratory
The test can be driven from a documented test script supplied by a Test Management solution such as Qualify. In this case the user is prompted with the test steps and they can pass or fail each as they are performed. If there is no detailed script, TestDrive-Assist is immensely valuable as it captures exactly what happened.
Quality checks
Spelling can be checked and links on web applications tested automatically just by selecting these options. Exact performance data is captured providing accurate measurement of the user experience.
