Business Challenges

The web-based visitor management system was developed with outdated technologies, without the right process and tools, user guide, and documentation. The application was tested and released by the in-house development team without an independent QA. It had lots of defects and bugs, lacked quality and customer experience.

Advanced Quality methodology to match the Next-Gen Solution

The success of the client’s visitor management system started with a shift from a legacy application to a robust and scalable application. Building on their experience and issues faced, they recognized the need for a well-integrated QA strategy that continuously tested all feature enhancements, product updates, and the database. This ensured quality and security at all times.

Trigent Solution

Bespoke QA strategy and implementation by Trigent

To meet the client’s unique requirements and highly demanding quality standards, Trigent came up with a well-defined and bespoke QA strategy that was followed during the development and release of the new application, for feature upgrades and new feature rollouts. This was extended to the mobile version of the next-gen application too.
The Trigent team took an ’embedded QA’ approach to ensure that there were zero-defect releases. Product grooming meetings were introduced anew, to improve product knowledge and get a better grasp over the customer requirements. The regular meetings between the product management, development, and QA teams resulted in better communication. Trigent’s unique approach included fixing bugs within a sprint before the release instead of pushing the bugs to backlogs, lead to bug-free releases.
Jira was leveraged to make bug reporting an ongoing process. Robust low-level test cases and test scenarios were used to cover all the business requirements. Ad-hoc, exploratory, smoke, and regression tests, among others, were conducted. Business-critical scenarios were identified for new features and upgrades.
The QA strategy also included a custom AI-led test automation approach where the backlog was cleared, and the sprint cycle was automated to bring additional speed for new releases at a reduced cost.
