A team of your most demanding and
and critical end users
Manual tests are based on human resources - our Quality Assurance specialists that determine if the software works properly. In this type of testing, all activities are done by people not using any tools or scripts.
Involve human beings
The work of our manual testers is based on the lists of test cases or exploration tests they need to control and go through to make sure the product works according to requirements and initial assumptions of the project.
This type of testing is not worse than automated ones. It has advantages that are strictly coming from the fact that manual tests involve human beings.
Highly qualified testers
Because who can be better at finding out if the app or a website is user-friendly, intuitive and suitable for people’s needs? Highly qualified and experienced testers outperform machines with creative and out-of -the-box thinking which even current AI is not able to achieve at that level.
Benefits of manual tests
- The human factor is one of the biggest benefits when it comes to manual testing. The process is destined to determine if the software brings expected user experience and if it’s easy-to-use.
- Manual testing only is cost optimal for short to mid-term projects. The reports prepared by manual testers are detailed, focused on usability, and include the human factor. For longterm and ongoing projects we suggest a blend of automated tests with manual tests.
- Manual tests are always highly suggested in software projects and cannot be replaced with automated tests only, because it’s not their main goal. All new mobile and web application’s features should be tested by manual testers, and other types of tests, like regression tests, are the best candidates for automation.
5 Areas for manual testing
Ad hoc testingimmediate tests without written test scripts that require intuition and objectivity
Exploratory testingis a formal version of ad hoc testing. Uses test charters and session based test model
Usability testingchecking out if the product works properly and if using it is easy
Integration testingmaking sure that all components cooperate with each other as they should
System testingusing an app or a website on all platforms that it is supposed to work on
- In all projects - manual testing is necessary to produce software without defects
- In complex projects - together with automated testing to achieve the highest level of Quality Assurance
- To receive feedback from people - this way we can review the user experience and logic of the app
- Manual tests are needed in every software project to minimise risk of bugs and verify business requirements
