There is a wealth of practical industry experience proving the reality that the selection and deployment of a test tool is only the first step on the road to better, faster testing and reduced risk of change. Many organisations struggle to maximise the return on their initial investment because of the effort required to re-engineer the testing process to take full advantage of the new tool. Deriving the maximum benefit from test automation requires a structured approach to the implementation of tools and methods.
Ascert and FSS Technologies share a proud and successful track record in the delivery of true automated testing solutions. Formalising our joint delivery capability is a natural step in our shared vision of testing excellence. In the FSS Technologies Testing Centre of Excellence, all test automation analysts have completed training on the VersaTest Automator product family to complement their extensive domain testing experience. As a result, the companies can now rapidly deploy the VersaTest product and build a complete automated test system for popular switching solutions such as CONNEX, BASE24, BASE24-eps, Postilion, Authentic, and others.
FSS Technologies' proven approach to test automation projects, coupled with Ascert’s VersaTest product set, allows an organisation to rapidly deploy an automated testing model as part of an agile application lifecycle. This delivers immediate benefits to the customer in time and costs savings, together with a reduced risk in future systems changes. FSS Technologies' and Ascert’s collaborative project methodology simplifies the process for customers seeking a rapid return on their investment in test tools.
"This partnership agreement is a very exciting step for Ascert," said Mike Wainwright, Business Development Director for Ascert's EMEA operations based in London. "We have already worked with FSS Technologies in a number of engagements and been very impressed. Unlike many others, FSS already has a deep knowledge of the EFT marketplace and of end-to-end testing, and in coupling this with skills in VersaTest Automator, together we now have the capability of delivering real benefit to our mutual customers."
Wainwright continued, "A big difference we have seen working with FSS is that they are project focused, delivering the right solution, with the right skillset, leaving the customer self-sufficient for the future."
“Adapting to change is second nature to FSS Technologies”, said Jim Tomaney, General Manager for FSS Technologies’ European operations. “It is in our blood and it directly affects how we deliver, manage, and maintain solutions. Empowering customers to manage change speedily and securely through test automation is a natural extension of our development philosophy.”
