Web Application Testing for Mobile Nursing Service Providers
The Customer is European company developing software for Healthcare, Life Sciences, Pharmaceutics and related industries.
The Customer was working on a web application for mobile nursing service providers offering mobile home care for people suffering from serious diseases and for the elderly.
The software offered complex functionality including control over internal and external service processes and supported versatile working methods, such as centralized and local service planning. It also contained a medical document database (reports, patient records, etc.) and allowed to manage electronic copies of handwritten documents. The application was also supposed to run on both desktop and mobile devices.
The complexity of the web application posed a challenging task both for the developers and the testing team. While the Customer was responsible for business analysis as well as frontend and backend development in-house, they were looking for a partnering vendor to perform comprehensive unbiased testing of the product to ensure its stable operation. The Customer turned to ScienceSoft, a qualified testing service provider, to perform lifecycle testing of the web application.
Two ScienceSoft’s testing specialists delivered functional and regression testing throughout the application lifecycle, designing tests with the help of Team Foundation Server (TFS). The project lasted for 5 years.
The project followed agile methodology, and ScienceSoft’s testing specialists successfully integrated into the project team. They closely cooperated with the Customer’s business analysts and developers participating in daily scrum meetings, sprint reviews and sprint retrospectives held at the end of each sprint. ScienceSoft’s specialists were responsible for testing team task coordination and distribution, as well as for planning and estimation of time required for testing in each of the 2- and 3-week sprints.
The testing specialists also reported test results to the Customer and provided bug reports and verification to the developers. The project team provided the product quality evaluation stating that the application ran smoothly and correctly before each release.
With the joint efforts with ScienceSoft’s testing specialists, the Customer has delivered to the market a fully functioning, comprehensive web application that facilitates mobile nursing providers’ work. The application has been serving stably for 5+ years.
