Quality Assurance

iWMS Quality Assurance is a professional quality testing company which tests that systems function according to client specifications.

This service is available to everyone, including non iWMS clients. All projects that pass through iWMS are tested from development to delivery by this team to meet the quality standards expected by our Clients.

Why is professional system testing necessary?

Quality Assurance - inventory management system - iWMS

While the robust standard functionality of HighJump Warehouse Advantage leverages best practices to meet many of your immediate and comprehensive operational needs, the best solution must also successfully address the unique and ever-changing business and customer requirements that empower you to deliver enhanced value to your customers.

Why automated vs. manual testing?

Many companies believe that when their application’s code base is small, manual testing is all that is needed. However, with the growth of an application and as its complexity increases, controlling code errors manually becomes extremely unreliable, difficult and expensive. Automated testing is a process where automated tools run

tests which repeat predefined actions which compares a program’s expected and actual outcomes. If the program outcomes align, the project is functioning optimally without any errors. If they don’t align, the code will have to be reviewed, altered and tests need to be run continuously until the outcomes align.

There are several benefits to including test automation in the software testing schedule:

There are several benefits to including test automation in the software testing schedule:

ENSURE EXISTING FUNCTIONS ARE WORKING

During test automation a repository of automated test scripts are saved to make it easy to recall the application’s previous state before the introduction of new code. This ensures that the existing functionality is not broken.

SPEED UP REGRESSION TESTING

Often these test scripts are reused in the process of testing and it speeds up the process of regression testing significantly.

TESTING IS AUTOMATED

Everything is done automatically which saves time and money. While automated tools can be expensive in the short term, they save money in the long term, as they find defects quicker and once the test is automated you never need to manually run the test again. This takes all the costs out of regression testing.

USE OUR BEST TECH MINDS

The process of setting up test cases takes coding and thought which keeps our best technical minds involved. This ensures optimal functionality according to client requirements and specifications as both the developer and the tester have interpreted the requirement separately.

GET INSTANT FEEDBACK TO DEVELOPERS

As testers or developers run these automated scripts, they can get instant feedback after making changes. The sooner a developer knows about a bug, the easier it is to fix.

QUALITY MEASURED AS YOU GO

As the automation tests pass rate is constantly measured, it is very easy for everyone involved to see the current quality level of the project.

Greater accuracy with your go live decision

Once the new component and the existing components function optimally through automated testing, it is easier to make a “go live” call based on the confidence accumulated by the project team. Effectively, your “go live” decision goes from a gut feel to an accurate measurement. Your automated test cases all need to pass before the new version can be released. This alleviates having to retest the product manually and avoids releasing faulty systems, costing company’s money and risking their reputation.

Why a separate professional testing company?

As this is a service being offered to the entire software development market, iWMS felt it was important to setup a separate division to handle the Quality Assurance to help avoid any conflict of interests within the group.
