ABOUT COMPANY

It is an online marketplace platform that provides a unique shopping experience for fashion enthusiasts worldwide. Their platform helps users discover styles that enhance their confidence and allow them to express themselves authentically.

BEFORE

The project was introduced to the market without undergoing a comprehensive testing process, and all testing was performed by the developer's team and product owners.

CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONS

We were called to thoroughly test the newly developed functionality and conduct integration tests, E2E tests. Our testing process introduced advanced test design techniques, which allowed us to identify previously undiscovered bugs.

Let us share with you some aspects of the work on this project.

Challenges 

Solutions 

To identify and log bugs both in existing and newly created functionality 

More than 50 bug reports were created. To identify and log bugs both in existing and newly created functionality. Monitoring the bug's status and communicating with developers for updates and clarifications 

To make sure that the application works consistently and all required browsers and platforms 

BrowserStack was used as a testing tool to facilitate cross-platform and cross-browser testing, ensuring the application's compatibility across mobile and web platforms. It allowed developers and testers to assess the application's performance on various browsers and platforms, aligning it with the client's requirements for functionality and compatibility 

FEATURES OF THE PROJECT  

The application was initially developed for local use and was available only in Dutch. Therefore, our testers meticulously scrutinized the text and flow for clarity and comprehensibility, utilizing translation services where necessary to provide accurate translation into English. 

TECHNOLOGIES, TOOLS, APPROACHES 

Our team conducted manual testing only. While the automated testing was out of scope in this project, we would like to tell you about the technologies directly related to the testing process. 

  • BrowserStack: Cross-browser and cross-platform testing tool used to ensure compatibility and consistent performance across different browsers and devices. 
  • Jira: Project management and issue tracking tool for efficient task management and collaboration. 
  • Notion: The connected workspace for closer collaboration with the dev team.  
  • MongoDB Compass: A tool for conducting database testing within the project. 

RESULTS 

  • Effectiveness of the testing process: More than 50 bug reports were created. They contained detailed descriptions of identified defects, including their nature, severity, and potential impact on the web application's functionality.  
  • Improved application performance: The user can now quickly switch between functionalities. All the integrated services are optimized, ensuring a seamless and continuous user flow. This optimization resulted in a smooth user experience. 
  • Cost Savings: Identifying and resolving issues during the development phase through testing helped avoid expensive post-release bug fixes and maintenance. As a result, the client could save on development and support costs. 
  • The application was successfully released and continues to progress in the market. 

IMPLEMENTATION STEPS

Requirements Gathering

The first step in the implementation process was gathering all the requirements. The team worked closely with the client to understand and document their needs and expectations. 

Manual Testing Planning and Setup

Configured test environments and installed necessary tools, browsers, and software required for testing. Set up devices and browsers to ensure cross-platform compatibility. 

Test Execution

Followed the necessary steps, inputting relevant data as required. Compared actual results against expected results and noted any discrepancies.  

Regression Testing

Conducted regression testing to make sure fixed issues did not introduce new problems every sprint. 

Cross-Browser Compatibility

The team used BrowserStack to test the application on various browsers and platforms, identifying and fixing compatibility issues. 

Bug Reporting 

Our team documented over 50 bug reports throughout the testing process to provide clear and comprehensive documentation. 

Test Closure

Reviewed the overall testing results to ensure coverage and completion. Shared testing results and insights with project stakeholders. 

Continuous Improvement

Continuous communication with the team and stakeholders addressed any quality improvements or changes in the application. 

We completed these steps to elevate the quality and performance of the project in the E-commerce industry.
