Hive CPQ initially wrote numerous manual test cases for the software and its behaviour. However, it was not efficient enough. The biggest problem and loss in a startup product is losing a customer.
This usually happens because of an untested, error-prone software. Therefore, like other competitive companies in the same industry, Hive had to cover the entire software with an automatic test executed on a regular basis.
Startup companies often proceed fast without writing any tests for their products as they need to prioritize fast delivery over quality. Moreover, adding a new feature or changing the existing one often leads to regression that may affect the consumer buying process.
“To avoid that, we (Hive CPQ) started writing end-to-end tests—the tool we chose is Katalon and we hit bullseye!”
Test execution accelerated
Katalon Studio allows Hive CPQ to cover all major functionalities of their products in a short amount of time. Hive CPQ was able to accurately locate test objects in their app thanks to Katalon Studio’s compatibility with Angular 2 and the Shadow Dom selector from Katalon (4.8).
Eventually, Hive CPQ started writing test cases in Katalon and almost covered the entire software within a short period of time. The test cases run smoothly—and even if some of them fail, the team can immediately check what went wrong to correct the errors.
