Our Solution & Customer Benefits

With the client’s intent keeping in mind, Mindfire re-validated all the Wireframes and designed a set of business rules and added the change request in the architecture of the product which opened the gates to update the existing testcases to be more functional than the testcases which the client initially had. Mindfire’s QA team regularly monitored the test cases to track the changes in the functionality of the application and then simultaneously changed it in the test cases as well. Test cases were put on VSS server so that any person involved in the project can easily check-out and check-in the updated testcase at any point of time. QA team also added all fixed issues as part of the test cases which enhanced the test script in uncovering more scenarios. Some important issues were also uncovered when the testers performed functionality/ bug regression/installation and compatibility testing.
