Banks handle sensitive and critical information. Malfunctioning systems cost banks loss of profit and customer trust. Ensure the efficiency of your systems through software testing. Test Automation can make this effort easier and more productive. In the Philippines, test automation for banks is adapted by more financial institutions.

The Problem

The client is one of the major banks in the Philippines. The bank’s core system is regularly updated with new features. Even if only a few features are added, the whole system still needs to be tested. Manual Testing alone can’t keep up.

The Solution
? Test Automation.

Pointwest analyzed the client’s existing test cases, then validated and documented them. Automated scripts where then created and tested. Within the allotted time, Pointwest delivered double the test cases. This ensured more accurate and thorough testing.

With manual testing, each tester can execute an average of 12 test cases per day. With Test Automation, hundreds of test cases can be executed within an hour, using just one computer.
