FE is the UK’s leading investment ratings and research agency. The customer needed a robust test automation solution and wanted to convert their manual regression test suite into an automated test suite.
Our QA automation specialists developed a test automation framework which eased the script development, enabled re-usability, and ensured the automated regression suites ran smoothly before every Production release.
We created automated test scripts which were executed on multiple browsers (Chrome, IE, & Firefox) and real mobile devices using BrowserStack.

Challenges & Solutions
- Parallel execution – Parallel execution on multiple browsers was a challenge and managing Selenium Grid nodes on Command Prompt is a difficult job. However, we developed VisGrid and implemented parallel execution using Java Threads.
- Financial Domain – We faced challenges on automating financial calculations. We used a data driven approach to read the formulated values to address the calculations.
- Automation on Real Devices – Maintaining in-house Mobile Test Automation lab is expensive and ensuring the required devices are up is a cumbersome task. We have procured a BrowserStack cloud testing account to access real devices instantly.
