Powerful, efficient and flexible test management
Our client is a Scandinavian multinational home appliance manufacturer. It is ranked among the top appliance makers globally owing to the sheer volume of domestic appliances and white goods they sell annually.
Their R&D department in Europe undertakes large scale projects requiring quality assurance and a structured test management process to accommodate multiple teams, cross project information and both Waterfall and Agile methods.
Their QA lead and teams evaluated nearly 15-17 tools and zeroed in on QMetry for the flexibility and efficiency demonstrated during the evaluation.
The client has multiple teams on different projects in distributed locations. Quality Assurance is an integral part of their operations and activities. They were previously using HipTest but weren’t satisfied with the overall organization of test assets and efficiency. They lacked overall visibility and direction with their existing tool. They also needed a tool that supported both Waterfall and Agile methodologies.
One key challenge was the ability to integrate with various CI and automation tools and import execution results.
QMetry provided a powerful and effective test management system that enabled integration with various tools and automation results.
The client had a large suite of automated test cases and used multiple tools. QMetry provided the ability to integrate test data and execution results from various tools.

“ We evaluated about 15-17 tools but QMetry soon became the obvious choice because of its ability to manage cross functional projects and complex business needs. Many test management tools are difficult to use and cause more problems than they solve. With QMetry we found the freedom and flexibility to adapt it to our existing test management process and build our automation framework, thanks to its integration capabilities. We have improved the efficiency of our SQA team and streamlined our test management process.“Head of QA
