VersaTest Automator now available to testing professionals

Ascert, LLC announced today the general release of VersaTest Automator. The product was first unveiled last June 2008 at the Annual Meeting & Expo of the Electronic Transactions Association in Las Vegas, NV. Since then, several U.S. and European financial institutions have implemented early versions of the product as their new testing platform.

The VersaTest Automator product is a powerful end-to-end test automation tool for use in enterprise environments that support multiple devices and interfaces. "The beauty of Automator is that it significantly reduces many of the manual steps that are inherent in the testing process," says Walker. "Early adopters of the product are finding that complete automation of testing scripts leads to significant time savings which enables them to move products/services to market in a much more rapid fashion."

Users of VersaTest Automator have been able to increase the number of tests conducted while decreasing total testing time, thereby achieving significant ROI in a very short time. These results are achieved through the use of automation in both the test execution and test validation phases of testing. "One of the early adopters of the product in the banking industry was able to decrease their testing process from twenty-three days down to four hours," said Rob Walker, Ascert's Managing Partner. "It's not hard to see how companies using this technology can quickly increase efficiencies and save substantial amounts of money."

VersaTest Automator utilizes a new generation of device and interface drivers based on the product's new Driver Framework Standard (DFS). DFS drivers are built on a framework of core components shared by all drivers, combined with task-specific components that implement the unique characteristics required for a specific device or interface. "This means that drivers are easier and faster to create, which increases the flexibility and capabilities of our products," says Walker.

Other features provided by VersaTest Automator include automated test result capture and recording, and the ability to integrate third party tools, such as HP's Quality Center. A web-based user interface allows VersaTest Automator users to drill down into the captured data for test diagnosis or audit purposes.
