Project Overview

The client had continuous releases for multi-hospital environments. Due to the increase in the number of hospitals, there were a lot of cases where there were data-related errors. Data Issues were coming up due to a variety of setups for multi-hospital environments. These issues were due to the use of the application in confined environments. The client needed some fixes and automation for their entire process of testing in their continuous releases.

Why Us

The founder of Castor found a major problem in medical research. Due to the unavailability of affordable noncompliant alternatives for tracking progress and collaborating ,Castor came up with their own Study Management System. To stay at the top in the market it needs trustworthy software systems for their business processes. Testing plays an important role in building any software system and launching it in the market. The complexity of the business then makes it furthermore difficult for testing to happen without any error. ASTAQC is a compilation of professional software testers with extensive experience in Quality Assurance. It specializes in providing end-to-end application testing solutions, setting up Testing Center of Excellence (CoE’s), Niche testing, quality QA strategies at optimal cost and delivery at the right time.


Solutions provided by Astaqc Consulting to its prestigious client are:

  • We Created a set of reusable high coverage tests that were made to run on all the installs.
  • The entire process above was automated so that the process can include continuous integrations.
  • A set of API tests were created so that the tests can cover all the functionality extensively.
  • The above process was created so that the result can be executed in a short span of time.

Project Result

Benefits given by Astaqc Consulting to its prestigious client:

  • Earlier the number of hotfixes were around 5 and this was brought down to as low as 0.
  • The above was made possible from the first iteration itself.
  • By doing this most of the bugs got resolved in the functional cycle itself.
  • By doing such automation runs, the system keeps a check on the changes constantly and reports accordingly
  • The entire process was quite cost-effective and reduced the cost of fixing that Castor was giving.
