TestRail by Gurock Earns High Praise from Test Management and QA Professionals

Solution Helps Organizations Achieve 81 Percent Increase in Productivity

HOUSTON – Oct. 4, 2017 – TestRail by Gurock (a division of Idera, Inc.), a provider of test case management and QA productivity tools, today announced new customer survey results highlighting the top pain points and business challenges that require a software test management solution, and the key benefits of using TestRail. Of more than 300 organizations, 81 percent increased productivity after switching their software testing solution, earning TestRail an 8.0 Net Promoter Score® on a scale of 1-10.

Survey participants ranged from small to large organizations in state and local government, banking, financial services, insurance, healthcare, education, computer services and software, retail and hospitality. According to their responses, the top business challenges that require a test management solution include insight into development progress, maintenance, deployment, clear requirements and fit-for-purpose development practices.

Among those surveyed, test management tools used prior to TestRail included Quality Center (22%), TestLink (17%), Zephyr Enterprise (13%), QAComplete (4%), Test Collab (3%), TestMonitor (3%), and qTest (3%). Since switching to TestRail, 17 percent of organizations saved 6+ hours a week, 33 percent saved 3-6 hours a week, and 30 percent saved 2-3 hours a week by eliminating inefficient test processes.

“The value of TestRail is incredible. From the efficiency of executing daily/weekly tests to the ease of use, UI friendliness and ability to integrate a broad number of third party tools, so far it’s the only one of the test management tools that completely meets our needs,” said Baha Ziyaev, QA lead at Ript Labs.

“TestRail has definitively added value to our company. It gave us the chance to continue expanding while maintaining the quality level of our products and services. Where one person was usually in charge of every project, TestRail allowed us to design test cases and assign their execution to other stakeholders, saving ‘knowledge transfer’ time and making the requirements accessible by all,” said Noelia Grabowiecki, QA engineer at GeoPagos.
