DMG Media, On-line Media

“The fact that we saw we could avoid jailbreaking or rooting of devices gave us further confidence that the testing with eggPlant would be accurate. In addition, we could see that the SenseTalk scripting language would be very easy for our teams to pick up and start using.”

“The products we used to use simply didn’t support the new future operating systems Lawson was developing for. We figured that if these vendors weren’t able to keep ahead of the curve, we’d find a software company that was – that’s why we work with TestPlant. It’s easy to use and flexible enough to change with development, which is perfect before code cut-off, yet stable enough for automated testing. ”

“The rapid growth of new technologies, devices and operating systems has a significant effect on our QA processes and poses a real challenge to meeting release deadlines. The device agnostic nature of eggPlant allows our team to use one automation script to test the functionality of multiple devices at once, irrespective of manufacturer, operating system or software version. Crucially this allowed us to get our manual test cases automated much sooner than expected, lifting the burden from our team.”

“We needed a GUI testing tool that would automate our testing across multiple operating systems, remain behind our firewalls, scale easily, and fulfil our need for accurate and efficient regression testing.”

Peter was working on eight computers with five different
system configurations when he was struck by how much work time he was losing to repetitive maintenance tasks. He recognized that automation could be the answer; it was just a matter of finding a tool that could meet his crossplatform requirements. When he discovered eggPlant, he requested a trial license from TestPlant and never looked back. eggPlant was easy to learn, and Peter had no trouble demonstrating its capabilities to his department management.

“We chose to work with TestPlant’s eggPlant because we needed a software testing solution that was cost-effective, easy to implement, would transform how we would approach testing, and was non-invasive. The non-invasive working of eggPlant was key to us – we can test without having to implement any software on servers or any of our systems, which makes it an invaluable feature.”

“No other solutions work as far as we know. We have been searching for a solution for years. The design of eggPlant based on VNC is really clever. That solves our problem of testing legacy GUI systems. eggPlant is quality software. It does what it supposed to do. Many many thanks to the support team, very responsive, and knowledgeable.”

Defense Prime (USA), Defense and Security UAV, TestPlant’s team already works with global military system integrators and technology teams within defense establishments and is aware that control system UI testing is a big challenge. eggPlant, the image based QA automation tool from TestPlant, was given the mandate by a (UAV) control system manufacturer to test the UI of their FCS before its release to a national army. eggPlant – using its unique image recognition technology – was able to detect bugs and assisted the QA team in resolve key issues. This adoption of automated test technology resulted in improved system quality, reduced delivery times and lowered costs when compared with an exclusively manual testing regime.

“Systems integration is the breadand butter of what we do, so automating that is our end goal. eggPlant is absolutely fundamental and at the core of being able to do that testing because of its ability to verify software and systems functionality at a ‘black box’ level. In terms of the grander goals and a grader scheme of things, we’re also looking to predicate a change of culture within the company and a change of culture within the defense industry by showing that we can develop these automated tools to a very high level of rigor and robustness in order to process a much more cost-effective product to our customer.”

Charities Aid Foundation “In a difficult multi-platform environment, eggPlant Performance helped the Charities Aid Foundation confirm improvements after environmental changes and system upgrades to their main processing and CRM systems. The test tool itself was easy to use and the support provided by TestPlant to assist with some of the peculiarities of the system under test was outstanding. Finally, the reporting was fully flexible, allowing detailed investigations to be made into the cause of performance bottlenecks.”

“I would like to extend my thanks to Facilita [now part of TestPlant] for helping us with the requirement for Load Testing our new SalaryPlan product. The TestPlant consultant fitted in very well with the team, who enjoyed learning from his expertise in this area. He also showed a lot of patience with the ‘opportunities’ that our environments threw at him.”

moneysupermarket.com “moneysupermarket.com has used the Forecast product from Facilita [now part of TestPlant] for the last few years. We have found the product to be very useful in understanding software performance for many different projects and we continue to use the product throughout our IT development as it is able to compliment our agile delivery approach. The support given by TestPlant is excellent and they continue to work with us to provide the performance testing solutions we need.”

NSPCC “The NSPCC and ChildLine recognise that young people are using the internet more and more as their main method of communication. In order make it as easy as possible for young people to contact us and receive help and counselling we launched ChildLine online in September 2009. However before we launched we needed to be sure that our new website and underlying technology could cope with the demand. In extreme cases, lives could be seriously impacted by any failure. We engaged TestPlant to conduct performance testing of the application and infrastructure. They executed tests, made suggestions with regards to the issues they found, worked with our developers and after changes had been made retested the system. We now use TestPlant on an ongoing basis to test new releases to a number of our systems. We have found them both reliable and adaptable.”

Shop Direct Group “The organisation originally engaged eggPlant Performance [formerly Facilita Forecast] as our existing performance tool couldn’t work with a thick Java client application. TestPlant [formerly Facilita] were able to provide performance test scripts and continued support against this application. Due to support and licensing costs of the other performance tool that we had been using, the organisation deemed it to be more cost effective to use eggPlant Performance for all its performance/load testing needs; even after changing to a new e-commerce platform. This tool gives fully distributed tests that can be managed from a controller PC. You can set up tests with comparatively low hardware requirements and a small footprint enabling support for 1000′s of Virtual Users on modest test equipment that is highly scaleable and extensible. This tool would be fit for purpose in any sized organisation and it provides performance/load test needs at a very competitive market price compared to other tools.”

“eggPlant Performance is an extremely powerful effective performance testing tool. I cannot fault the support service that TestPlant provide; the support team are on hand for the full working day and respond straight away usually with a solution. In my 12 years of working experience in the IT industry, this company has provided the best support service of any IT software company that I have dealt with.”
