Retailers who are marching towards the digital future must make sure to have a solid and sound testing system to strengthen their innovations. With a high customer-interaction rate and exponentially increasing competition, Retail industry has ensured that it has a very low appetite for risks. Therefore, the systems associated with it should be tested adequately in a short span of time to assure there is no scope for errors. Hence, the need of the hour is Test Automation.
With an experience of more than 20 years serving several retailers, we understand their IT needs quite well. Aspire provides testing services across the entire retail landscape of Buy (Merchandising and Sales Audit), Sell (POS, E-Com, Mobile), Move (Warehouse Management) and Plan (Financial Planning, Demand Forecasting, and Inventory). Following are the service offerings:
Aspire’s DCqaf (Digital Commerce quality automation framework) has successfully driven test automation for many Fortune 500 retailers. A robust and comprehensive framework accelerates digital commerce by automating testing of E-Commerce,
M-Commerce, POS and API-enabled applications. DCqaf enables seamless testing across multiple environments and supports frequent functionality changes by allowing quick and easy script modifications. Some of the key benefits that help you stay ahead in the retail industry are:
Up to 90% reduction in regression cycle
Over 15% reduction in maintenance costs due to enhanced flexibility
Enables reusability that yields up to 30% greater return on test automation
BDD approach allows stakeholders to stay on the same page
Integrates systems by linking gaps between digital commerce and POS Testing
While most of the POS Testing challenges can be addressed with automation, not 100% automation can be achieved because of few limitations like scanning a bar code, swiping a card, pin-pad-entry, etc. Automation is capable of supporting only cash payments and other UI test cases, thereby covering only 60% of test cases, while 30% for any POS is EMV. To resolve this issue, Aspire has come up with an innovative test automation solution that uses a robotic arm for testing critical E2E scenarios like EMV in lesser time. Consequently, retailers can have 90% of automation done, which is a 30% boost in automation coverage.
With its latest update called Robotic Arm 2.0 iPOT, Retailers can now conduct complex EMV test cases on a much faster scale. With performance speed enhancements, iPOT can now handle 40 actions within an hour thereby reducing automation efforts drastically compared to its predecessor version Robotic Arm 1.0 iArm.
