Compared to a less formal approach of documenting test cases in text documents and keeping track of test results in spreadsheets, web-based testing software increases productivity by having everything accessible in one place: test cases right next to planned test runs, test results along with status reports and progress charts.
From an infrastructure perspective, there is another advantage: web-based software is easier to roll out because all that is required for end-users is a web browser. At all times, each user is using the latest version and won’t have to worry about backing up data since it is kept on the server. This saves time and money when introducing testing software that is web-based.
We can’t speak for all web-based testing software solutions, but with TestRail we’ve put a lot of effort into making the things you work on every day as easy as possible: adding test cases, executing tests, tracking results, and generating reports. Everything is accessible right there from your web browser.
See for yourself and give TestRail a try.
