QA Automation Services Overview
Today, when for most businesses it is essential to deliver software at lightspeed, automation testing services are in great demand. The thing is that automation testing not only enables significant acceleration of the QA process and reduces time to market, but also ensures the superior quality of a product. If you feel that it is high time to optimize your software testing and speed up your development process, our automation testing services are just what you need.
Automation testing simplifies the whole QA procedure but it, in and of itself, is far from being simple. Automation testing services are multifaceted and consider different aspects of software testing. For example, QA automation services that we provide cover:
Test Strategy Design
We make up a holistic test automation strategy that is a part of the whole test strategy taking into consideration project requirements, development methodology, and deployment process. There we outline our objectives, select testing methods, define automation scope, and make a decision on tools best suited to gain maximum efficiency.
Test Framework Building
To provide the best possible outcomes, we try to select an automation testing framework that perfectly suits a project. In case none of the available frameworks is appropriate, our specialists build a custom test automation framework outlining the guidelines (e.g. coding standards, procedures, test-data reporting, etc.) that must be adhered to while writing and running tests.
More than often regression testing is time-incentive, effortful, and costly in case it is executed manually. If it is applicable to you, we are here to help you by automating regression testing. These automated regression tests will be run whenever the source code is modified to check an application under test for potential defects with the further identification of their root causes.
GUI Test Automation
That is a graphic user interface that makes the first impression. Therefore, it is important to ensure its proper testing. As a rule, using corresponding automation testing frameworks we automate GUI tests that validate fonts, colors, menus, fields, sidebars, hyperlinks, buttons, and other UI elements across various platforms.
As long as not only embedded functionality but also performance contributes to app quality and success, we pay particular attention to performance testing. We use the most advanced tools to perform load testing, stress testing, volume testing, and other types of performance testing. Due to this approach, you can be sure that your app will be able to withstand the most diverse and high loads.
Test Script Maintenance
As your product grows and evolves, some features are added, others are deleted. To keep up with the product development, we maintain automated test suites accordingly on an ongoing basis by writing new test scripts, and updating or tweaking available ones.
What we offer:
To offer our clients the best possible automation testing services, we deal with all the QA-related issues. Cooperating with us, our clients can take advantage of:
Test Architecture Design
To achieve the best possible results we start with test architecture design which suggests outlining the guidance for test organization in terms of testing infrastructure development, test automation framework adjustment, test data management, and others with the aim to provide maximum test effectiveness.
Test deliverable configuration
In order not to miss out on anything, we complete a comprehensive list of test deliverables and define requirements for them. Test deliverables are different test artifacts designed to keep all stakeholders well informed. Some of them are drawn up before testing (test strategy, test plan, test scenarios), some during test execution (bug reports), and some after test completion (test summary reports, test metrics, etc.).
A thorough study and careful analysis of project specifications let us clearly understand the way an app should work and therefore define the most appropriate test scenarios that will cover the most critical parts of software with tests to make sure that core functionality works as expected.
Smart and atomic script design
Test script design is what our QA engineers are extremely good at. Their rich experience, brilliant skills, and profound knowledge let them develop smart, atomic, reusable, maintainable, and easily readable test scripts. This approach to script design provides reliable test results, efficient and early bug detection, fast test execution, easy test maintenance.
Integration of software testing in the CI/CD pipeline
If your development team is one of those that have adopted the practice of CI and CD, we can easily assist you with the implementation of automation testing in the CI/CD pipeline. We use an effective testing workflow with advanced automation tools to provide a fast feedback loop letting your developers know the results of their work in just a few minutes and enabling them to quickly tackle possible issues.
Taking the heavy burden of software testing off your shoulders
We undertake the whole responsibility for your product quality. You can completely focus on your core tasks whereas we take care of your software testing by efficiently handling all the related issues.
What our clients get:
With our experience and the brilliant opportunities that automation testing provides, our clients can enjoy numerous benefits, including:
Shorter Time To Market
Speed is the main benefit of automation testing. With appropriately chosen testing tools, reusable and maintainable test scripts, autonomous test execution, and efficient bug detection, QA procedures are completed much faster and consequently, a product can be delivered to end-users within the shortest possible time.
24/7 Test Run
Automated tests can be run at any time of the day or night without any human interference. For example, a QA engineer can schedule test execution for every night in order to have testing results every morning. It immensely boosts software testing procedures.
Better Test Coverage
Automation testing enables higher test coverage as more types of tests can be executed. Regression testing, GUI testing, API testing, performance testing can be automated and executed within defined timeframes. Probably, it is needless to say that higher test coverage results in better product quality, which is our main purpose.
Elimination of Human Errors
Automated tests are executed according to the predetermined scenario, as a result, there is no risk that something can be omitted, forgotten, misunderstood, unnoticed, etc. Human errors of that type are usual for manual testing, while automation testing can easily eliminate such risks, providing reliable results at any time.
Despite the significant upfront investment, automation testing is indeed cost-efficient in the long run. It gives an opportunity to cut down labor costs and save a lot of money as most bugs are detected and fixed at the early stages of software development. Automation testing is especially beneficial for large-scale projects.

Do you want to hit the market with a jaw-dropping mobile app? In such a way efficient app testing must be one of your main priorities. Mobile app testing is a rather complex process as it must consider a variety of mobile devices, different screen resolutions, numerous OS versions, diverse types of network connections, and many more. Automation testing services we provide are a way to go in order to simplify mobile app testing, make it more efficient, and save a ton of time and effort.
Does your business level suggest using RESTful microservices or APIs? If this is the case, API testing is an essential part of your test plan. We offer API testing automation to efficiently validate business logic for each release by making sure that all transactions between the user interface and databases are correct.
Our QA Automation Process
Years of experience have let us establish a particular workflow of QA automation. The whole process can be divided into five stages presented below in detail:
At the initiation stage, we closely collaborate with product team members including a business analyst, a project manager, a lead developer, etc. We collect, review, and thoroughly analyze project requirements, outline and set a quality assurance process.
At this stage, we complete a list of test deliverables and define requirements for them. Besides, at this time test scenarios and test cases are prepared.
Armed with the knowledge of project peculiarities, our specialists make decisions on test automation tools, frameworks, test suite architecture design, test data management, reporting integration, CI integration, etc.
Now a turn of the test development stage comes. Automation QA engineers define locators, develop actions, and write smart test scripts.
At last, it is time for automated test execution. Prescripted tests are run locally or on CI to detect bugs in software and report them.

How to choose a right tool/framework?
There are few key things to do:
Understand the project stack. In most cases, there are no “bad” or “good” test automation tools, but there are tools more suitable for web and mobile testing.
For web tests, it’s good practice to select a tool/framework based on the same program language (e.g. if your backend is based on Java, try to use a framework based on Java) especially regarding to API tests.
For API tests, it’s good practice to select a tool/framework based on the same program language (e.g. if your backend is based on Java, try to use a framework based on Java).
Availability of the documentation, manuals, and community (especially for a new framework)
Knowledge of the tools’ resources (people should be aware of poor points of the framework, its limitations, as well as its possibilities)
Truncated solutions (it will save time if the company creates some truncated solutions based on the framework)
Should a record/play tool be used instead of custom scripting?
If you are going to have few dozen tests and you aren’t concerned about maintaining your test suite, and you do not need to speed up your tests through multithreading, the record/play solutions should be sufficient. In the event that your test suite contains hundreds or thousands of tests, they should run quickly so that releases aren’t delayed. They should be reliable and easy to maintain, so you should certainly use custom solutions based on well-known test automated frameworks.
What should be the priority?
To ensure the usefulness of automated tests, coverage must begin at the most important areas of the application, like:
High risk - business critical test cases
Test Cases that are repeatedly executed (regression test suite)
Test cases that are tedious or difficult to perform manually
Test cases that are time-consuming
What are the benefits of automation testing?
The list of automation testing advantages can be indeed endless. Still, here are the most prominent ones:
Accuracy and reliability
24/7 test run
Fast time to market
Instant feedback on software quality
Compliance with the best DevOps practices
Higher test coverage
Human error elimination
Stress level reduction, etc.
Which tests are suitable for automation?
It is a well-known fact that it is not reasonable to automate every single test or test scenario. Moreover, not everything is automatable. The main candidates for automation are:
Repeatedly run tests like smoke and regression tests;
Cross-platform and cross-browser tests;
Complex and time-consuming tests;
Is it possible to cover 100% of functionality?
In most cases, no. Some scenarios may require so much effort that it makes no sense to automate them. However, 93% code of coverage is typically achievable.
When is automation testing relevant?
Automation testing is indeed relevant when it comes to complex and high-profile projects that suggest numerous versions and releases.
When does it not make sense to implement automation testing?
In spite of being extremely beneficial, automation testing is not one-size-fits-all. It is not appropriate, time- and cost-efficient when you deal with small and pretty unsophisticated projects. In this situation, manual testing is a viable option in all aspects.
What is better: automated or manual testing?
They have their pros and cons. One isn’t necessarily any better than the other. A human engages in manual testing, painstakingly checking to ensure the application performs as expected. Automated testing occurs after initial development of the application has been completed. These prolonged tests can run on their own and are poorly suited for manual testing. They can also run in parallel on various types of operating systems and browsers. The two types of testing are related, but have slightly different purposes. Automated testing can speed up the process, reduce the amount of manpower required, make a more structured approach to testing, and it can also automate repeated activities.
Automated testing costs too much. Do I really need it?
While, at first, the cost of automated testing may seem difficult to justify, it pays for itself in the end. Since they take out the human component, that man power can be shifted to more important issues, like customer needs, functionality, and improvements. You will also require fewer code revisions, and the ones that do occur will be cheaper. The tests are also reusable, so once the source code changes, you can just run the tests again. While manual testing is expensive and takes a lot of time, you can engage in automated testing as much as you want with no additional cost.
How can we speed up our tests?
One of the key features of automation tests is the reduction of time spent on testing. For big projects with thousands of automation tests created, batch runs can take days to complete. The data for tests can depend on one by one. This decreases productivity and makes the tests impossible to run in parallel. This usually happens when wrong architecture was created. With such scenarios, the tests would become ineffective and this is where parallelization comes in. Instead of running tests sequentially, parallel testing allows the execution of multiple tests at the same point in time across different environments.
Currently, I do not have automation testing in place. What should my initial steps be?
Your steps should be:
Choose tool that covers your needs
Set up test suite architecture
Integrate your test suite in CI/CD process
Cover test cases that are time-consuming
How to calculate the ROI of test automation?
It is a rather cumbersome task to calculate the ROI of automation testing. Therefore, there is no accurate widely accepted approach to this issue. Every team uses its own method of ROI calculation making use of variables that meet its needs.
Simply put, automation testing ROI is a ratio between the gain obtained from automation testing introduction and the investment made in it:
ROI = (gain-investment) / investment*100%
It is also worth mentioning that the more frequently automated tests are executed, the sooner a positive ROI is reached.
How to measure automation success?
To measure test automation success pay attention to such metrics as saved time, saved efforts, number of detected bugs, flakiness of automated tests, etc.
Should I integrate automation tests in my CI/CD process?
The short answer “yes.” If you integrate automation tests to your CI/CD process, you will gain the following benefits:
Full continuous delivery process
Numerous test report delivery channels
Broken code never deployed to the server
