TestDrive-UAT goes to the heart of the UAT ( user acceptance testing) pain making the automatic complete documentation of all test activity totally intuitive without needing the tester to alter their behaviour at all.
It can even document your business processes and produce your training materials. Combined with Qualify, our Application Quality Management platform, the entire process can be planned, managed and tracked to give the feedback needed for the entire team.
UAT is an essential discipline that transcends how the application was acquired or the methodology used to create it. Whether off the shelf or custom built, Agile, Waterfall or hybrid processes – it doesn’t matter. No-one will deploy an application without ensuring that it meets the needs of the intended user community.
Until now UAT has been a laborious chore, distracting subject matter experts from their primary roles, with no effective tools to help. Yet you cannot ignore UAT. Application quality is a business critical issue and users have a key part to play.
TestDrive-UAT is invisible to users as they perform their user acceptance tests. It is only when a potential issue is found that the user can send a log of their activities to the development team of the UAT leader. One click, a brief description and they’re done!
TestDrive is indestructible and quietly keeps up with user watching and recording their every action. Its intuitive, simple UI requires little support or training.
TestDrive-UAT will capture all actions and diagnostics that a user carries out in any of the monitored applications, providing accurate details of the test, actions and any defects discovered.
A full audit trail is essential to facilitate the rapid correction of discovered defects and TestDrive-UAT provides this with no effort. Gone is the need to take screen shots or notes about what you were doing or appeared on the screen.
The user can optionally choose to run quality checks such as link and spell checking. They can also choose to mark up the screen images to highlight the source of the issue and to provide additional information.
UAT will be performed over realistic data which may contain information that cannot be shared with a wider audience. Passwords are automatically masked and the user can choose to hide other details.
In addition to speeding up defect resolution, a test result can also be used to create training materials and to document existing business processes. These can be produce in Microsoft Word, PDF, video and animation formats.
Issues are often found in applications which are dependent on the hardware, operating system and application version combinations. All this data is automatically included in any issue report.
