Validating and signing off on new builds used to take us days. Sofy has removed the bottleneck of QA testing from our release cycle, and their regression testing capabilities have helped us release quality code. We have been able to automate most of our test scenarios in just one month, and we can now test our builds on hundreds of devices and releases ON-DEMAND. Being a startup, agility is extremely critical to our business, and Sofy has helped provide a platform which allows our company to be AGILE and at the same time, have engineering capabilities similar to mature companies.

Problem

Due to the fast-paced nature of the industry and their growth stage, Coinme wanted to release updates to their mobile apps but were facing a bottleneck with QA Testing as it was taking them a few days for every release. Some of the challenges faced by the team were:

  • Issues in validation and longer release times
  • The team is distributed in different locations,
    so they needed separate devices in those locations
  • The feedback loop was longer
  • A lot of manual testing needed to be done
Problem

Solution

To get the stability and scalability of the production systems like big tech companies, Coinme got Sofy. They integrated it into CI/CD, starting with manual testing as part of their DevOps cycle. In only a month, Sofy helped them to:

  • Receive a holistic view of the development cycle
  • Have real devices available and accessible from anywhere
  • Access a single platform to manage test data, test scenarios
  • Remove friction from reporting and project management by automating tasks
  • Perform a no-code test automation platform to scale tests and validate builds on demand without writing scripts.
Solution

Results

Sofy helped reduce the testing cycle from 3 days to 2 hours and helped the team find issues even before a build was ready, significantly improving performance and quality of code. We were able to automate all test cases within one month. Once the test cases were set up, the tests ran automatically on all the chosen devices every time the developers released a new build for QA.
