Johnson says Katalon has increased operational efficiencies with more agile software testing and faster testing timelines. And the fact that the Katalon quality management platform enables his team to test more scenarios in each four-week sprint is improving software quality.
“With Katalon, we can run a huge number of tests in a relatively short space of time. At the moment we’re running at least 100 scenarios per product, per development release with Katalon. When regression testing was manual, we would have only been able to test around 30 scenarios across two days. The Katalon testing platform has more than tripled our testing capacity, and reduced this process from two days to two hours.”
Katalon’s quality management platform is also having a positive impact on the QA team. It has significantly reduced the need for overtime work – and the associated costs. And since Katalon also offers an intuitive, easy-to-learn low-code test automation experience for beginners (in addition to infinite testing extension for experts), Johnson can enable and empower a broader set of testers to contribute to Saga's software quality efforts.
“Our testers don’t need coding experience to use Katalon. That makes Katalon very accessible and user-friendly. But if you do want to dive deeper, it’s very versatile as well. Katalon gives you the option to use custom keywords when you need to test something very specific. That’s unlike other testing tools we’ve seen.”
