Rainforest QA Rolls Out New Features to Enhance Testing Visibility

Reporting feature allows development teams to monitor overall health of test suite, Results Categorization adds test categorization capabilities

SAN FRANCISCO – JULY 24, 2018Rainforest QA, the leader in on-demand quality assurance (QA) solutions, today announced new features that provide businesses with a robust set of tools to maximize visibility into their testing workflows. Through platform enhancements powered by Domo’s chart-building capabilities, Rainforest’s new Reporting feature allows development teams to instantly access and download reports, charts and graphs depicting the overall state of their test suite. This gives them the data necessary to make informed decisions on what, how much, and how often to test. In addition, the company launched Results Categorization, a new feature that allows customers to categorize each individual test outcome, adding clarity into what action needs to take place next, while increasing visibility into the overall testing suite.

As companies continue releasing new apps at the speed of continuous delivery, development teams need to remain apprised of testing conditions at all times to quickly address potential problems and bugs before code hits production. At the same time, as the number of tests and data amassed scales, aggregate insights into testing speed, coverage and predictability are crucial for improving the QA process without creating unnecessary delays. By incorporating reporting functionality directly into Rainforest, customers can instantly access, consume and interact directly with their data to gain visibility and evaluate how their product and QA teams are performing.

“In order for us to continue delivering exceptional employee experiences for today’s modern, digital workplace, we need to ensure there are no discrepancies in our system,“ said Jason Poland, Software Developer at iOffice. "Our development teams use Rainforest’s various reporting tools to conduct health checks at a glance. Plus, they provide all the analytics we need to get the most out of our QA processes and deliver a superior user experience for our customers at all times."

In addition, by expanding Rainforest’s testing platform with the new Results Categorization feature, companies can easily review and label each test result to help them understand and quantify the amount of bugs addressed. Team members no longer need to repeatedly interrupt their workflow for status updates and can spend more time collaborating on getting new features and products to market faster.

“Development teams today are moving quickly in the era of continuous delivery, and a common pain point we find among them is the lack of a quick and convenient method for gaining a comprehensive view of their test suite,” said Derek Choy, CIO at Rainforest. “With Reporting and Results Categorization built right into the testing workflow, customers no longer need to feel in the dark about their QA processes and can continue focusing on scaling the business.”
