Aaron’s was challenged to deploy a new custom-built POS (point of sale) application to 2,000 stores over a 12-month time frame. The IT department required a software testing team to develop a best practice framework and process to deliver zero critical defects upon deployment. The regression test suite run time of 5 days was causing signiﬁcant delays to the deployment schedule. Aarons were concerned how an outside team would fit into their existing QA team.
Services we provided to Aarons Inc
Automated Functional Testing
The Celtic Testing team created an automated testing POC (proof of concept) to evaluate the tools under consideration and determined the best ﬁt based on the client’s current technology platform and internal processes. Our certiﬁed Ranorex consultants led the creation of a new automation framework and process. During the engagement, the teams worked side by side to build, manage, execute, and deploy the regression test suite. Celtic Testing earned Aarons trust by integrating seamlessly with the team and providing the reports.
- 1:8 deployments per day
- Consistent feedback loop
- No rollbacks
- Reduction in support tickets
The new POS application was successfully deployed to 2,000 stores on time with zero critical defects. Our collaborative team efforts reduced the regression test suite run time from 5 days to 40 minutes. The IT team now utilises a standard automated tool (Ranorex) that drives the continuous development build process. Today the IT team is utilising continuous integration and delivery to accelerate their application deployments.
