Quality Assurance and Testing

Optimize Omnichannel Commerce Development and Enhance Your User Experience with Full Testing Coverage

Your investments in commerce are only as strong as the applications, integrations and performance of your larger deployment. Whether you are seeking better efficiency across the software development cycle or looking to reduce the number of reported issues, it is critical to understand your business priorities while constructing a test plan. The right approach can create a seamless user experience and quicken your speed to market.

The advance of digital transformation requires a more comprehensive approach to testing. The days of testing a single standalone application are long gone as applications are expected to deliver increasing business value.

Mastek extends beyond frameworks, tools and commerce artifacts to offer you coverage in areas like behavior-driven development (BDD), robotic process automation (RPA), IoT, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI). With our strong understanding of quality assurance in the commerce world, we work with you to develop a plan that supports informed decision making that considers your omnichannel needs.

We Can Help

With 500+ commerce test cases that span your end-to-end commerce applications, integrations and processes, we are uniquely positioned to pinpoint the potential gaps in your commerce deployment. We can help you find gaps with manual and automated testing across channels as well as provide an executive dashboard that tracks real-time testing and highlights the metrics that drive informed decision making.

It really helps to have a partner in Mastek that can translate their knowledge of our business into creative, effective solutions that help us achieve our transformation objectives. -Chris Robinson, CIO, IPF

QCheck: Process Optimization with Commerce in Mind

When looking to create a testing roadmap, QCheck is the place to start. The results provide a clear representation of the strengths, observations and challenges within an organization. QCheck includes specific recommendations and has been shown to generate up to 25% in cost savings through process optimization. We have developed QCheck to address the unique needs of B2B and B2C commerce; it provides feedback in three key areas:

Stakeholder Relations

Understand stakeholder commitment and involvement, test strategy, communication and reporting. Gain a view into the test organization with a graphical overview at a summary and granular level. What is the degree of involvement from a particular team? How well are the business and technical teams communicating? How aligned is the test organization with the commerce goals?

Test Management

Examine multiple facets of test management: test processes, estimation and planning, defect management, and testing tools. Assessment outcomes provide a clear view into where your organization stands and what opportunities exist for improvement. Which gaps occur repeatedly and in what areas? Are your practices what they need to be in specific areas?

Test Maturity

Measure key factors such as methodology practice, tester professionalism, test case design, test tools and test environment. Do your test cases address specific commerce needs? What opportunities exist to improve your test environment?

QCheck Reporting Across Projects
QCheck Reporting Across Projects

The Commerce QCheck can be performed at a project level and then aggregated to identify trends within the organization and against the related industry. When you approach your testing with a commerce-centric focus, you gain the insights that increase your edge in your very competitive market.

Mobile

As mobile use continues to surge, the complexity and sophistication of mobile apps are increasing along with importance of mobile testing. As much of commerce moves to an API-first approach, it is critical that the integration points are accurately delivering information across systems and optimizing functionality for back-end delivery and front-end user experience. Testing needs to examine all points of integration across your omnichannel deployment. Mobile testing further extends to usability and compatibility testing to ensure an optimized end user experience. Security and performance testing further ensures your development meets your requirements.  Whether automated or manual, we have the means to ensure you are on the right track with your Android, iOS or Windows mobile offerings.  Our mobile lab includes comprehensive test scripts and tools such as Jukebox and Experitest.

Web

Performance Testing

Stress test your site for load, capacity, endurance, scalability and more to gain up to 30% productivity improvement (scripting, execution, reporting and analysis, performance process improvement). Our testing toolkit has the tools and framework to optimize your site for performance.

Learn More about Performance Testing

Integration Testing

Detect potential integration issues and speed development times with component and system integration testing that uses bottom-up, top-down, hybrid and big-bang based on your specific needs. Avoid disruption down the road by understanding the performance and security of integration points across channels before you go live.

Automation Testing

Increase the depth and scope of your testing across web, mobile and social channels with automation that allows you to bring new developments to market faster and with optimized quality. Automated testing can make quick work of repeat testing that comes with new features or regulatory and organizational changes. Automation can dramatically reduce the resource strain in time and people while providing clear testing results in a fraction of the time.

Cloud Migration Assessment

Consider the impact of cloud and hybrid development on your technology choices. A proper assessment can examine the cultural, operational, skills and developmental considerations that enable cloud optimization and put you on a roadmap for success.

End-to-End Commerce

Regression Testing with Data Validation

Gain the agility necessary to implement new technology within your existing environment. Run functional and non-functional tests and ensure data validity across changes and new development.

Functional Testing

Verify the function of your software and development to measure inputs and outputs against expectations. Performed manually or through automation, functional testing spans the UI, database and beyond to ensure the accessibility and overall functioning as well as the ability to identify and communicate errors.

Usability Testing

Scan code for accessible development, examine the heuristics of your design, and detect omnichannel effectiveness through a comprehensive site analysis. Understand the user experience with manual user acceptance training (UAT).

Commerce testing can be further extended to examine integration points and business processes across channels such as point-of-sale (POS) or logistics testing. Whether web, mobile or in-store, testing can identify potential gaps and provide a more comprehensive understanding of the end-to-end commerce capabilities of your business.

Testing Tools, Frameworks & Resources

Open source, commercial and proprietary tools make up the full suite of commerce testing capabilities offered. We evolve our testing tools to keep pace with the rapid rate of change that defines commerce. We build strong partnerships with technology leaders and develop frameworks and scripts based on the testing we do with our own client base. Our expertise includes some of the following:
