Centralised Test Information, Accessible Anywhere at Anytime

QaTraq Professional provides a single, central repository for critical test information and data for your whole team. With QaTraq Professional, remote and office based users can access, update and share centralised data in real time through a web browser (removing the need for the deployment of client software throughout an organisation).

Key QaTraq Professional Features QaTraq Professional provides you with extensive control over your test process. When you purchase the QaTraq Professional licences just some of the capabilities you gain are:

Test Scripts:
One of the key challenges for any test team is controlling and tracking the development of test scripts. How, for example, do you know when a test script is complete, reviewed and ready to run? Test Scripts and Test Script Templates allow you to divide your scripts into those that are still being developed and those that are ready to run. Furthermore you can even implement a test script review process for your team. All of this adds up to far more control and increased repeatability across your test process. Control and repeatability that is essential to the success of any test project.

With QaTraq Professional regression test sets you can quickly create sets of regression test scripts that can be, quickly and easily, distributed across your team. Sets are neatly linked in with Template Test Scripts so that only Templates that are ready for execution are distributed. Regression sets of test scripts can be built up from existing test scripts or created with links to templates. Either way you get complete control over who’s running which scripts, on which platforms for which versions of your software or hardware.

Professional Reports provide you with graphical reporting capabilities covering everything from identifying test coverage to tracking test completion status. This gives you the visibility needed to see exactly how your test projects are progressing.

Collating your Test Data to Pin Point Progress If you are searching for answers to some of the questions set out below, then perhaps now is the time to consider the capabilities and benefits of QaTraq Professional.

  • How are we progressing with the development of our test scripts/cases?

  • Who wrote and who reviewed each test script?
  • How are we dealing with our regression testing responsibilities?
