Low cost of maintenance
Maintenance costs tend to increase a lot when automation coverage and number of cases increases. That is why we have put effort on making it minimum. Our largest customer has 18 000 automated tests with 700 000 test steps. These automated tests are executed 500 hours every single day. Sounds heavy, but is actually simple:
- Tests have been automated by using PaceWords methodology
- This allows 20 key words to cover 80% of the test steps.
Compared to some other open source and recording based test automation frameworks, maintaining tests with PaceWords is 5 times more effective: it takes less than 15% compared to your average 75% of effort spent on maintenance.
Effective handling of large number of tests
Same test can run across different web browsers, mobile, and native applications. With the help of machine vision you can automate native desktop applications, such as SAP, as well as web or mobile applications.
