Challenge: Keeping Up With Growing Demands
Until 2015, Elevate’s QA strategy for mobile was a manual process run by an outsourced team of five full-time testers. While this was an adequate short-term solution, outsourcing presented some challenges: security compliance, time constraints, tracking quality and collaboration issues, and a reactive approach.
The company was also adopting a DevTest platform supporting both waterfall and agile processes during this timeframe. Elevate chose Microsoft’s DevOps platform due to the flexibility in supporting both approaches while offering the ability to support real-time insights throughout the SDLC.
“Perfecto has helped us think differently. It has enabled us to align [the] delivery of a great desktop web experience while also ensuring a great mobile browser experience, with little automation code change.”
– Darrell Kennedy, Director of QA, Elevate
