Automation Testing Services
Every software product in its development life cycle comes to a point when it is no longer possible to maintain its quality via manual testing only. At this stage, the introduction of test automation becomes mandatory. It can help support the product's quality throughout the rapid development cycles and growing market demands.
Automated software testing as a service is integral to continuous integration (CI). It helps you stabilize your product's performance and save time and effort the quality control takes. In addition, it is an effective solution for finding bugs at different stages of the software life cycle, and it is crucial in organizing regression testing as automating the routine processes eliminates or at least significantly reduces the human factor.
The automated software testing solutions we create are integrated into the CI/CD processes and provide immediate value, justifying your investment. Our QA team provides a high level of testing organization through professional management and ensures that the best practices for software automated testing and product quality management are applied.
Benefits of automated testing
In a high-tech environment, the speed and efficiency of quality control play an essential role. Therefore, there are reasons for deciding in favor of test automation:
With software automated testing, large numbers of tests can be run in parallel, allowing for much faster testing. For example, if you have 2,000 tests, running them in 10 threads would take only an hour, compared to at least a week if testing manually. Autotests can also be run outside business hours so your team can get test results the next morning.
Automated tests can be run under multiple conditions:
- on different browsers,
- screen sizes,
- operating systems,
- network types and speeds.
Testing has high precision and reliability because its results do not depend on human factors. The system will never forget which test and check you’ve planned to run and won’t miss any step.
Automation can replace hundreds of hours of manual testing. This way, it saves on personnel costs and frees up equipment resources.
Security testing is another type of testing that widely uses automation tools for stability and saving working time.
Automated Software Testing Services we provide
We provide automated software testing services, such as building automated testing on your project from scratch or refactoring and maintaining existing autotests. As a full-stack QA company, we also can deliver the creation of manual test cases (test documentation) as a base for future automation.

At Luxe Quality, we know that automated testing should be adaptive to fulfill even the most sophisticated business needs. For this purpose, we use different tools and programming languages, such as:
When to Automate
Automated testing is advised with a stable, rarely updated development environment (for example, once a week). In this case, created autotests are run locally or embedded into the CI system to run automatically after each code change. This approach saves a lot of time and manual effort. Automation testing services are particularly important in cases such as:
Regression testing verifies whether the introduced changes did not break the operation of already existing functions of the application. The automation of this process allows you to quickly and efficiently pass many test scenarios. Usually held each sprint and is the basis for maintaining the quality of products.
Automation of repetitive tests is ideal for modular or integration tests. It aims to test after fixing each bug in the same part of the functionality, allowing developers to waste no time and focus on other tasks. In addition, automation will increase the accuracy of test results, minimizing the risk of human factors.
Automated smoke testing is a quick check of the system's primary functions after code changes, performed before more detailed tests to eliminate the possibility of critical errors. It uses special programs that automatically run test scripts that check the system's key features, which allows you to evaluate the working capacity of the product quickly.
In automated data-driven, tests are created using information stored in a file or database rather than static values given in the test code. The test script can be re-executed for each row of data from the source, checking the results against the expected output. This technique is also known as table-driven testing or parameterized testing. The steps involved in creating data-driven automated testing can vary depending on the type of software, the tool used, and the testing environment.
Automated software testing can also be used for load and performance testing. These tests include simulating large volumes of traffic, user activity, or load on the application to test its reactions and sustainability.
Test Automation Frameworks We Use
Our Testing Automation Tools
Our team offers you the most suitable automated software testing tools and solutions that reduce costs and improve the quality of your product. We thoroughly analyze various aspects of testing, such as scripting language, usability, testing of databases, images, and different types of testing, as well as frameworks, platforms, and technologies.
Selenium IDE is a convenient and affordable tool for automating web application testing that allows you to create and run automated tests, capturing and reproducing user actions, which works as an extension for Chrome and Firefox browsers and has a simple and intuitive interface. It is a Graphical User Interface (GUI) Selenium library built using XUL. The extension allows you to record, save and play scripts for testing web pages.
Appium is a free and open-source framework for testing the user interface of mobile applications. It helps to test native, hybrid, and web applications, conduct automated software testing on physical devices, uses an emulator and simulator, and also offers cross-platform application testing - a single API works for both Android and iOS platform
Allure Reporter is a multilingual open-source tool that allows you to flexibly build test reports that are useful for testers and developers and transparent for managers. Allure Reporter automatically sorts test results for bugs, defects, and broken tests and displays the result in TMS, bug tracker, or web report.
Docker is an open-source service for packaging, delivering, and running applications in an isolated container environment. The use of Docker containerization technologies provides some significant advantages for testing web applications, such as ensuring a uniform environment for running tests; independence from the parameters and settings of the system on which the tests are launched; reliability, reproducibility, and predictability of test results when they are run in different environments, etc.
Cucumber is an automated web application testing tool based on the Behavior Driven Development (BDD) approach. It allows you to write test scripts simply and understandably using the Gherkin language, which describes the expected behavior and results of the application and supports different programming languages such as Ruby, Java, Python, etc.
Automated Testing Process
Test Automation Setup Plan
Test automation planning
- Analysis of the features of your software to determine the optimal coverage of test automation.
- Suggestions on types and levels of automated testing.
- Create a test automation plan and integrate it into the project.
Test environment setup
- Choosing the right automated software testing tools and setting up your test automation environment.
- Installing and configuring appropriate testing tools.
Test data preparation
- Analysis of the specifics of your software and the characteristics of the data it processes (for example, the amount of data and the number of supported data formats) to automatically generate test data.
Based on the created test plan and chosen tools:
- We create test scenarios and test cases or use existing manual test documentation.
- We write appropriate test scripts.
- We run autotests on previously set-up environments.
- We analyze the results of automated testing and create bug reports.
- We maintain test automation scripts.
