Manual and Automated Testing
Our testers are trained to have a high attention to detail when performing manual testing and to use automated testing techniques when relevant.
Good automated tests start with good manual tests. Manual Testing requires creativity, perseverance, pattern perception and exploration. Automated Testing requires repetition, speed and structure. Both methods of testing require attention to detail. Our diverse workforce is well-suited for both types, and we utilize the strengths of each individual in different areas.
Iterators performs Manual Testing with several different approaches, depending on your needs. We can execute test cases when available and are also proficient at structured exploratory testing techniques. Exploratory testing allows us to maximize the use of our creativity to delve into the areas perceived to have the greatest risk, or involve newly developed features. This is the basis for creating specific test cases for further manual testing, which can then be used as a foundation for automated testing.
Automated Testing is well-suited for our employees with STEM backgrounds who can create well-structured programs to perform robust tests that continue to work as new features are added. We use Selenium, Appium, Applitools and TestComplete. This provides you with the benefit of access to these tools without having to train your own team in all of the relevant best practices. We can also use our skills with additional tools that you may have in-house.
We use the MoSCoW approach to automation in which we work together to identify what Must be, Should be, Could be and Will be automated. This results in overall savings for regression tests by automating the relevant parts and leaving specific areas for manual regression tests.
Each project will be designed around a customized approach based on your needs. For example, one of our approaches is to use the Page Object methodology for Selenium tests, and integrate it with Applitools for performing sophisticated visual checks of websites. This can be used to verify that Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, etc. are all providing consistent displays of your website. We will also run these tests in parallel using the Cross-Browser Testing environment available with SmartBear. Using a combination of tests ensures better, glitch-free results for you and your customers.
As an organization that is constantly updating our website, we get a lot of feedback on what works and what doesn’t. Iterators was helpful in locating potentially problematic back-end issues that otherwise may have gone unnoticed. Their attention to detail was remarkable, and the level of professionalism was unmatched. We highly recommend their services to any size firm. Our experience could not have been better, and we also learned to better understand the interactions between our website traffic and our systems and databases.

I had a chance to go through your information — wow, it was amazingly thorough. You have highlighted a number of issues in your very comprehensive report. I think as owners of an app, sometimes we are so close we don’t see it as clearly as we could. Having ‘fresh eyes’ go through it is a great way to see things that our customers may be experiencing — in a new way.
