Foodbuy and Insperity accelerated automated testing of apps,
resulting in as much as 30 percent time savings
BEDFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
(NASDAQ: PRGS) today announced Foodbuy, the largest food service
procurement organization in North America, and Insperity, a leading
provider of human resources and business performance solutions for
America's best businesses, have achieved marked success with Telerik®Test Studio® solution. Test Studio solution enables
non-technical testers to automate software tests in minutes.
"The proliferation of digital technologies in today's high-velocity,
software-driven business world is pushing every company to rethink and
reinvent its approach to testing. Development cycles are getting
progressively shorter, as businesses work to deliver value, faster," said
Brandon Satrom, General Manager for Developer Platforms and Tools,
Progress. "Teams are looking to automation in an effort to reduce
go-to-market times and stay ahead of their competition. The Telerik Test
Studio solution is a great choice for agile organizations that require a
more integrated approach to development and testing in order to speed
apps to market."
Foodbuy is the largest food service procurement
organization in North America and the sole sourcing partner for its
parent company, Compass Group North America, a division of UK-based
Compass Group PLC. Foodbuy began searching for an automated testing tool
for its apps used by internal customers across Compass Group.
Chris Spaziani, Quality Assurance (QA) Team Lead at Foodbuy, was the
only member of his team with prior automated testing experience, so a
solution not requiring extensive training was a must. Telerik Test
Studio solution was extremely easy for Spaziani's team to learn and use.
"Two of my teammates in Atlanta-one of which was new to
testing-installed the solution within a day and were automating test
scripts against projects that afternoon," Spaziani said. "With the
previous solution, it would have taken multiple days or even a week to
In addition to saving time, using Telerik Test Studio solution has
increased Foodbuy's productivity by eliminating manual regression
testing on each release, freeing up the QA team's resources, and giving
them more time to innovate and develop.
Insperity is a leading provider of human resources
and business performance solutions for America's best businesses.
Historically, the company used time-consuming manual testing practices
for QA. Keeping pace with increasing development demands necessitated
faster testing. Insperity wanted to automate regression testing to
provide the coverage needed to focus on current Sprint work, without
adding technical talent. The solution had to be easy to implement and
able to span multiple applications.
Telerik Test Studio solution enabled Insperity's developers to create
usable regression testing scripts within six months. They eliminated
manual testing, reducing the time it takes to do repetitive scenarios
and enabling performance testing using the same tool. As a result,
Insperity has recognized 30-percent time savings.
According to Kimberly Baker, Director of Quality Assurance at Insperity,
implementing Telerik Test Studio solution was about 50 percent faster
than using an alternative solution, because the interface allowed for
easy script development and did not require extensive coding knowledge.
"Telerik Test Studio solution is an easy plug-in tool for web
automation. Our QA testers who know little about automated testing have
been able to get up to speed quickly and with little training," said
Baker. "We were able to implement the software, infrastructure and some
useable scripts, all within six months."
Test Studio solution offers automated functional web and desktop,
mobile, performance and load testing capabilities. It ships with a
standalone application and a Visual Studio plugin, enabling true
developer-tester collaboration for test automation. Intuitive and easy
to implement and use, Test Studio solution helps teams automate testing,
regardless of team size or development methodology. For more information
