TestMonitor Blog #39

At TestMonitor, we live and breathe testing. This is why we developed an industry-leading test management software that organizations of all scopes and scales can use to deliver quality products that bolster their brand.

We also know that, unlike measuring how much time and money went into a product’s development, measuring quality can be hard to quantify. 

That’s why TestMonitor is also designed to establish repeatable, robust testing structures,  link requirements to delivered products, and create a constant, auditable trail of quality assurance. 

So how can your organization harness the power of TestMonitor? This article will help you better understand how TestMonitor approaches testing and what using a solution like ours can do for your organization’s testing efforts.

What features does TestMonitor deliver?

From initial requirements to final release, TestMonitor is built to make each stage of the software testing process more efficient, visible, and comprehensible for everyone involved. 

The result is a structured test management process that ensures the quality of even the most complex software projects. So how does TestMonitor do it? 

Capture Your Risks and Requirements

TestMonitor gives your team members the tools they need to develop a logical testing structure based on both performance and functional requirements. It also offers the ability to capture risks, identify mitigations, and gain the necessary consensus to move forward with confidence.

And, once testing is underway, you can use TestMonitor’s built-in tools to track each risk and requirement from end to end. 

Build Test Cases

No matter the type of testing required, requirements can be translated into test cases that give your testers the ability to effectively and efficiently validate your design. 

TestMonitor is flexible enough to handle a wide range of testing scenarios, including:

  • Functional and non-functional
  • Application versus application
  • Operating system capability (iOS, Android, web)
  • Application process flows (purchase, sales)
  • Testing phases (pre-test, functional test, data migration, UAT)

Structure Test Cases into Test Suites

Increase productivity and organization with the power of test suites. Test suites group test cases into segments based on similar features, allowing for easier planning, tracking, and analysis, especially for large, complex projects with potentially hundreds of test cases.

Plan a Test Run

This is where it all comes together and the testing rubber hits the road. With test cases and test suites, TestMonitor makes it easy to designate what to test, when to test it, and who should do the testing. Once those factors are determined, your testing can be assigned and linked together into milestones.

Initiate Test Runs

TestMonitor makes actual testing more robust with preconditions, instructions, data, and expected results linked to each test case. The platform even makes communication and documentation easier, giving testers the ability to upload screenshots and summarize their results through a smiley-based system.

Track, Report, and Remediate

TestMonitor allows the testing team to filter test results by requirement or by milestone, giving them the ability to monitor testing on both a macro and micro scale.

Results can then be converted to issues and prioritized for remediation, which can be managed within TestMonitor. Once the issues are fixed, a retest can be started. test cases can be closed out or validated by stakeholders, completing the vital quality feedback loop.
