We have a web application which is widely used by Retailors/Distributors. The application is customized to suit local business requirements for certain countries. Can SNAP be used for testing the application?
A platform similar to SNAP can be developed for the web application, that can handle dynamically test cases generation, test execution and test maintenance. The platform development would take around 03-04 months. The localization testing for multiple countries can also be handled. The platform will help to release the application to the users at a faster rate due to reduced manual testing effort and schedule, higher customer satisfaction due to increased number of functionalities released within a shorter period of time and at a reduced testing cost with minimum involvement of testers as E2E Testing Lifecycle is automated
