Problem

Due to the fast-paced nature of the industry and the company’s growth stage, Coinme wanted to rapidly release updates to its mobile apps. Unfortunately, the company encountered a bottleneck during QA testing and this caused the team to take days for every release. Challenges faced by Coinme included:

  • Issues in validation and longer release times
  • The team operates from 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 match the stability and scalability of the production systems of big tech companies, Coinme went to Sofy. The team integrated Sofy into their CI/CD setup and its DevOps cycle. In just a month, Sofy
helped Coinme 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 and 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 shrink Coinme’s testing cycle from three days all the way down to two hours. With Sofy, Coinme found issues before a build was even ready, significantly improving performance and code quality. The company was able to automate all test cases within a single month. Once the test cases were set up, the tests ran automatically on all selected devices every time the developers released a new build for QA.
