Streamlined Manual Testing

Bridging the gap between manual and automated testing


Whether you are looking to speed up your manual testing processes or start on the road to automation TestDrive-Assist plays a key role in streamlining your processes.


Dynamic Manual Testing

TestDrive-Assist tackles the key challenges of test documentation and defect reproduction. It can also simultaneously execute Quality Checks such as spelling, performance and hyperlink checking

It  even monitors what database activity has occurred during the course of each test.

The Road to Automation

Having documented your manual tests with TestDrive-Assist automated testing is only a short stop away.

Saved results can be immediately converted into an automated test asset, and the capture can be used to understand the business context when building your regression tests.  Take a look at our How to Guide on Building a Regression Test Pack to see how simple it can be.


Scripted or Exploratory

The test can be driven from a test script and steps supplied by a Quality 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.

Screen Shots and Actions

Capture every action, click, input that the user performs with reference to the screen they are on, and the controls or objects on that screen. The user operates as normal, new screens or pages are automatically identified. Each is immediately and fully documented without any additional action by the user. No need to go back and reproduce a problem, it is already fully captured!

Re-use, modify, repeat

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 & Training Documentation

Capture those business processes automatically for reference manuals and help with training. If need be you can enhance the content with comments and mark-ups.

Quality Checks

Performed automatically while you concentrate on executing the business process. Including spelling, performance, hardware impact,and link checking. Exact performance data is captured providing accurate measurement of the user experience.

Device Emulation

Users can click on any captured screen, not just the current one and highlight an area adding a comment. This might be to identify a problem, request a change or provide guidance notes for training materials.


Spot something wrong, either while you are testing or while you are reviewing any test results?  Simply add a mark-up to any screen, add some description and give it a level of severity.


All information including screen shots, content analysis, test steps, errors, mark-ups and performance data from a test execution is stored as part of a Test Result. This information can then be analysed in numerous ways within the Result Viewer.

Raise Issues

Defects and non-conformances can be created while a test is in progress, optionally linked to a test step and with full reproduction steps automatically passed to the developer.
