Support a large-scale software redevelopment project with efficient and user-friendly test management, while delivering a dual-language user interface for clients.
The Viacar system is a modern software solution that covers all relevant business processes for road traffic agencies. It is used by the client cantons on a SaaS basis, making it easy to implement and maintain. To align with its digital strategy, and to provide a modern and cost-effective solution, Viacar has embarked on a large-scale project to redevelop its flagship solution. The project ‘RoutePlus’ is done in close collaboration with the client cantons and will replace the current solution, ready to embrace the future.
Michael Florin, Test Manager for Viacar, explains why its test management solution needed a rethink: “We have been using a test management software for many years. While it did everything we needed, it wasn’t particularly user-friendly and it required a part-time administrator, a big commitment for our QA team of eight. Our canton users are not professional QA testers, and they often struggled with the English-only interface. Our canton’s languages are German and French, and we would love to give our clients a local-language option with their interface. With this major redevelopment process we realized we needed a specialized test management solution to support us. The product development is done externally, and they do the unit level testing. It is then up to us to manage all the functional and defect testing, together with our clients.”
Viacar needed one solution to plan, track, report, and execute its application testing process.
