Case Study

Simplifying Enterprise Collaboration with qTest

“We evaluated several test management platforms, looking for one we could standardize on as a company. Nothing came close to qTest,” says Michael Mwamunga, Five Point’s Testing Director (now Senior Manager in the Performance Improvement Practice at Ernst & Young). “Reporting, tracking and traceability can be painful and tedious. With qTest it’s the opposite. It has plenty of features, and no cumbersome set-up. This made it especially useful to those of our clients who aren’t invested in an ALM tool.”

A Reusable Library of Scripts

Five Point also uses qTest to build on each client experience. “We’ve been using qTest to create a library of testing collateral and test scripts for a wide range of applications. If our client runs IBM or HP Quality Center in-house, qTest makes it possible to export our library of scripts and import them into that tool,” says Mwamunga.

“We evaluated several test management platforms… Nothing came close to qTest.”

Since the consulting firm is rooted in three continents, qTest delivered best on cross-national compatibility. “We’re very much a cloud-based company, and we like the SaaS model. Since qTest is accessible from anywhere through a web browser and it has zero local footprint, it fit effortlessly into our applications model.”
