Seamless launch of 31 Mobile Apps with Manual QA

Seamless launch of 31 Mobile Apps with Manual QA

Background

Betclic Everest Group is a French gaming company centred on leisure, entertainment and customer satisfaction. The Group provides online sports and horse betting, poker, and casino services on the European market for more than 10 years.

Mobile applications are at the core of Betclic Everest Group’s revenue. All 31 apps had to be thoroughly tested to provide uninterrupted information flow and the best quality of user transactions.

Betclic Everest Group requested Manual QA testing from Ciklum considering the following challenges. 

  • Complex testing structures caused long project adaptation time
  • False initial test data
  • Security and location-based test environment access/configuration issues caused frequent QA downtimes and the emergence of pseudo-bugs.

    Executed test cases to verify and validate products and target platforms releases
Solution

The Client’s QA team consisted initially of 1 Manager, 3 Team leaders and 15 testing engineers to perform the sufficient regression testing of all supported brands, games and target platforms.

Ciklum provided a Manual QA Team consisting of 1 QA Manager/Consultant and 4 Manual QA Engineers.

After the Manual QA Team had developed an in-depth understanding of the client’s applications and system architecture, they started adjusting and integrating processes, infrastructures and tools.

Extensive testing of both iOS and Android versions included defect tracking, test cases execution, regression and smoke testing. They also executed compatibility and comparison testing across a wide range of devices (Android and iOS phones and tabs) to ensure optimal functionality.

The Ciklum QA team helped us to organize in a short period of time regression testing of all our games on all target platforms. Without any doubts, they exceeded our expectations. Our successful release on Production became possible thanks to high-quality reporting and the support of Ciklum QA engineers. Great Job!
