Slashing the overall release time fivefold with test automation

From the project start, the development involved rigorous manual testing. As the complexity of the system and the number of supported devices increased, AQA engineers stepped in. This allowed the team to successfully cope with the ever-growing scope of testing, while shortening release cycles.

The total number of automated test cases for functional, regression, and load testing surpassed 3,500. As a result, test automation helped Oxagile’s QA team detect over 60% of major and critical regressions and played a crucial role in the project’s success.
