The Agile Test Factory

The Challenge

Flowe, Mediolanum group’s Benefit company with a focus on sustainability and financial awareness, was looking for a Partner to take charge of the testing activities required for the launch of its innovative account and payment card management mobile app. 
The ideal Partner needed to work in complete synergy with the Flowe teams, that operate according to Agile methodology, to create and release new features in incremental and iterative stages.

The Solution

Fincons satisfied the Client’s needs by setting up an Agile Test Factory that is effectively integrated in the software development cycle. The Test Factory leverages skilled resources that manage all planned activities including:

  • functional analysis;
  • test case drafting;
  • test execution (including non-regression and backward compatibility tests);
  • bug notifications;
  • activity reporting.

The team tested on both Android and iOS apps by checking the applications on different types of devices with different operating systems, evaluating both functional and UX aspects. 

The Benefits

The Fincons Test Factory successfully supported Flowe in the market launch of the app in April 2020, right on schedule, and it still plays an important role in ensuring that the software released by Flowe maintains its high quality standards.
Thanks to the focus on results and the flexibility provided by Fincons in the adoption of Flowe’s required Agile methodology, a lasting and valuable collaboration between the two companies is now thriving.
A growing involvement that has seen Fincons engaged in further activities such as back-end application testing and the identification of new actions to improve app performance is an example of the ongoing partnership between the two companies.
