Texas Instruments is a global semiconductor design and manufacturing company that sells to electronic designers and manufacturers across the world. The company previously used Excel with several multi-location QA teams, often working on the same file with masses of different sheets. It soon became a logistical nightmare and the problem further escalated while tracking and monitoring various test cases and management of test runs. They required a solution for all of these challenges, as well as a tool that integrated with Jira.

“We did a comprehensive analysis of each one of the shortlisted tools. We looked into the features and what the various tools offered and we settled with QMetry for Jira as the solution for the entire Jira instance at Texas Instruments. This tool has definitely been a gamechanger for our software development team. We do a lot more testing now than ever because of the way we are able to integrate test cases and execute test runs within Jira itself.“
