Paychex Accelerates Automation by 50% With Perfecto
With Perfecto, Paychex automated the majority of its user interface and regression testing.
Benefits of Using Perfecto:
Enhanced team efficiency by shifting device lab management to the cloud.
Increased test efficiency by implementing device-agnostic test automation.
Automation development accelerated by 50%.
Challenge: Speed Up Release Cycle
Paychex’s initial release of their hybrid apps brought two test teams to two separate facilities. The challenge soon became clear. The process of acquiring devices, bringing different teams into one conference room, and manually executing test cases with devices was inefficient. There had to be a better way. Paychex conducted a competitive search for a sustainable, cross-platform mobile test automation solution. Their first choice? Perfecto.
“Device management was a huge benefit of the solution. We want to test on the actual devices customers are using. We are simply unwilling to put customers at risk. We also discovered the speed of adding new devices. Adding devices through Perfecto Mobile was more efficient than acquiring them internally.”
– Sharon Chamberlain; Test Automation Manager, Paychex
Results: Accelerated Testing
Perfecto delivers robust test automation on real, carrier-connected devices fully integrated with their HP environment. By implementing MobileCloud Automation, Paychex automated most of its user interface and regression testing. Now, the test team can estimate the regression test cycle duration, scale testing on real devices, and expand test coverage as needed.
Paychex's choice to renew and expand the solution footprint three times within the first year of using Perfecto is proof of its success.
