Summary

Summary: 
A French company features a unique approach to functional test automation. It provides all software testers – whether they have a technical background or not – with an intuitive and robust solution to create, maintain and execute automated functional tests which offer a comprehensive view on the quality of software at all times – on web, desktop, mobile and webservice technologies. The company is looking for commercial agents and financial partners (investors) for its software.

Description

Description: 

The company was created in 2017, and is based in Corsica and Bordeaux, France. It’s the first test automation solution for testers without developer help. The aim is to offer an innovative solution that allows functional experts to produce and maintain their own repository of GUI (graphical user interface) functional tests on web and desktop technologies. It’s intuitive and doesn’t require any complicated training, the tool can be grasped by testers without any knowledge of software development. Facilitating and simplifying test maintenance is a central element of the solution.
It’s a cross-platforms and end to end testing solution and allows to define scenarios for several applications at once. It’s compatible with the majority of apps developed on web technologies, and supports the main browsers on the market.
Simple to setup: installed on client workstations in one click, it doesn’t need server nor plugin. The project is based on the free ATS framework (ActionTestScript) and produces tests in ATS readable text format. ATS provides open source tools to replay tests in this format on all types of environments, to produce video and enhanced test replay reports. Automatically updated for always supporting the latest versions of browsers.

Thanks to its innovative and powerful capture system, the tool is always able to strictly identify application activated components. It makes tests less sensitive to software code changes. When a test is KO (knock-out), failure is identified and fixed easily through step by step execution and modification editing capability

The enterprise evolves in an international environment by selling its solutions in SAAS (Software as a Service) mode on the internet. Within the framework of the development of this innovative company, and to accompany the evolution, they are looking for investors and customers so they would like to identify financial partners and commercial agents. Respectively, these partnerships will be part of a financial agreement and a commercial agency agreement.
