Therefore, the Customer chose ScienceSoft’s testing team to improve the whole system (both web and mobile apps) quality. The testing process should be performed in parallel with new functionality development.
ScienceSoft’s dedicated team decided to execute smoke, functional and regression testing of the mobile and web app. On the base of reviewed specification intelligible test cases were created.
Smoke testing was performed for every build with new functionality. After smoke tests completion, ScienceSoft team continued with execution of functional testing, at the end of which the Customer received bug reports. After reported bugs were fixed, regression testing phase started. To check if users of all popular browsers can easily use the system without any mistakes, cross-browser testing of the web app was performed.
ScienceSoft testers took part in planning and estimating of the development process, fulfilled in Agile (Scrum) methodology.
