Introduce your business and what you do there.
I am the chief executive officer of NOMTEK, an application development company.
What challenge were you trying to address with Testarmy?
We had been trying to improve the quality of our application, so we looked for quality assurance services. It would have been difficult for us to build an internal quality assurance team quickly and we needed to have these capabilities in order to adapt to the market dynamics. Testarmy was able to fulfill this need quickly.
What was the scope of their involvement?
We mostly use Testarmy for manual testing, namely building manual test scenarios and executing them. Whenever we produce an application, Testarmy will create step-by-step scenarios for testing it. The scenarios are used for regression testing whenever we develop a new version of the application. This way, they cover the same cases for each iteration.
The second aspect of our work is fragmentation testing, which involves using several devices that we specify to Testarmy. They run manual tests on all relevant devices for each app.
Testarmy is integrated with our Agile development process and test each application as it is being developed. Whenever a new feature is delivered, Testarmy's testers will react to our work and check the quality of the features on demand. This may happen several times per week. We are minimizing the time spent between the delivery of a small feature to testing.
How did you come to work with Testarmy?
We considered local options but we found Testarmy through personal references. We knew the company's owners and felt that we could trust them. Throughout the cooperation, we have developed that trust.
How much have you invested with Testarmy?
I prefer not to disclose this information.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with Testarmy several years ago. The collaboration is ongoing and our relationship has evolved over time. We continue to increase Testarmy's involvement in our processes.
Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?
Testarmy has fulfilled our testing needs consistently and their results are reliable. The flexibility they've shown in providing resources is also important to us. Testarmy has participated substantially in our processes and has brought value to our team.
Testarmy is highly integrated with our team, even though they're mostly working remotely for us. They quickly provide properly skilled resources based on our dynamic needs. They have a good process for picking the right people and training them.
How did Testarmy perform from a project management standpoint?
There is absolutely no bad feedback in this area. We can communicate with Testarmy's managers, but there isn't a great need to do this. We typically only discuss general needs and specific orders, while most of the work is done directly with Testarmy's engineers. There haven't been any missed deadlines and Testarmy has responded quickly to our needs. I really appreciate their ability to scale easily and offer us resources on demand. I was initially working with Testarmy directly, but we eventually assigned a person to manage the collaboration.
What did you find most impressive about Testarmy?
I've appreciated the quality of the service and Testarmy's scaling abilities. This is the main value we've gotten from them. We collaborate closely. Testarmy is tightly integrated into our workflow, which means that they participate in our processes together with our team. We can thus evolve our methodology and improve together.
Are there any areas Testarmy could improve?
It would be hard to say.
