Project Overview

Kumu is a social networking app with a live streaming feature. It is an application built to last which is being used by a wide variety of audiences and mobile setups. It was a challenge to run through all the devices Kumu could be used on. Verifying the functionality, performance, and usability of the application and its compatibility with a camera and audio features of the native devices was a challenge to overcome.

Why Us

Due to a wide range of device usage, there were a lot of compatibility and UI issues. This was creating a lot of errors and bugs. To stay at the top in the market Kumu needed trustworthy software systems for its 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 provides 360° Software Testing and Quality Assurance services for global enterprises and SMEs across industries. 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. We set our aims on alleviating the harsh process of Testing. Therefore, building solutions that save our clients time and money. Understanding the implications testing can bring to companies, ASTAQC aims to provide relief to this process, to allow our clients to allocate their resources more efficiently and increase workflow.


Solutions provided by Astaqc Consulting to its prestigious client are:

  • It was important that the application was tested with real-time test cases and audiences, Astaqc formulated a group testing team creating a set of Functional and Performance tests to be covered on multiple OS and Device Configuration at the same time.
  • Created a suite of Live streaming tests to be run simultaneously on all the devices and monitor the system load and performance.
  • Tested the effect the application has on the user device’s battery and performance, thus optimizing the application for better usability
  • Created a suite of UI based tests to be run on all major platforms to confirm the uniformity and UX consistency, ensuring a great User experience.

Project Result
