Rainforest Manual Testing workers can be used for the following task types: manual test execution; creating and maintaining test suites (through Rainforest Test Designer); exploratory testing (through Rainforest Exploratory Testing). All of these are charged at the manual testing hourly rate.
No, we cover this cost for you, regardless of how many testers it takes to get a trustworthy result. Rainforest sends at least 3 testers to execute each test. We automatically vary the number of testers to ensure high quality. When testers disagree or we sense ambiguity, we may assign additional testers to the test in order to get higher signal before we return results to you.
We run every test in parallel. Unlike traditional outsourcing, you have access to our entire global crowd. When you kick off a run of 500 tests, we will start them all at once. While the speed is constrained by the total number of testers working online at that particular moment, we do a lot of logistical management work to keep customers' runs to around 30 minutes.
All customers have access to all our desktop platforms out of the box. Speak to us to enable mobile platform access.
Nothing. Zip. Nada. Nought. All VMs within your plan are accessible without limit. Why? Because you don't want your team worrying about how many minutes of VM time they're using.
We support mobile web testing, and our Virtual Machine infrastructure includes the most common platforms, browsers and screen sizes. A full, up-to-date list can be found in our documentation.
Technical support is always easily accessible from within Rainforest and over email. In addition we have comprehensive documentation, and have found that most problems can be solved by searching here. If you are looking for a dedicated point of contact at Rainforest, a Customer Success Manager who is accountable for your success on the platform, reach out to us about an Enterprise partnership.
Rainforest is a quality platform, in the same way that AWS is an infrastructure platform. Everything is on-demand, and your team can do everything in Rainforest without speaking to someone. No account managers to go through, no scheduling of test runs, no "quick calls" to get simple stuff done. Beware competitors who claim to do "crowdsourced QA" but force you to speak to someone to initiate test runs.
Indeed we do! Here is our help center.
Rainforest Automation is no-code automated testing. Anyone on your team can write a test in our DSL, and then run the same test against machines or humans.
Probably. We spend a lot of energy designing Rainforest to flexibly fit into modern development workflows. This means speed, modularity, and everything accessible and editable directly through our API. Many customers hook us into their production deploys, so that Rainforest tests are run as a blocking step in their release.
Rainforest QA allows us to build and exercise a QA suite for our application with several key advantages: (1) We don't have to hire our own manual testers, and our license cost with Rainforest is a fraction of the cost of a full-time employee; (2) Because the tests are written in English, we don't have the brittleness and maintenance overhead of coded solutions such as Selenium; (3) Product managers and others who aren't coders are able to write tests, and these are exactly some of the people who are closest to the requirements. On top of this, Rainforest allows us to test against more browser environments than we possibly could stand up on our own.
