Andersen, a leading software company providing quality assurance and testing services, has carried out an eight-month finance-specific testing project for a web trader. With a steadfast commitment to excellence and innovation, the company has leveraged its QA expertise to drive significant improvements in the online trading industry.
The customer chose Andersen as an IT partner because of the company’s impressive track record. Andersen's financial software development expertise, supported by over 480 seasoned engineers and an impressive 4.9/5 Clutch rating, spans diverse sectors such as financial APIs, mobile banking apps, and insurance solutions. Cooperating with global giants, medium-sized enterprises, and startups alike, the agency offers tailored services, including team augmentation and product strategy development, to propel businesses of all sizes toward technical success and digital transformation.
The project focused on enhancing the online trading services of the client, a prominent player in the international currency market. Operating within both B2B and B2C models, the customer offers an extensive array of financial instruments, encompassing fiat currencies, metals, cryptocurrencies, stocks, and more. This ambitious undertaking aimed to bolster the client's standing in the financial services domain.
Andersen undertook this challenge, recognizing several critical issues that demanded immediate attention. These included a distressing number of defects, underperformance of the development team, a dearth of product documentation, and suboptimal system performance. Furthermore, the testing process had been handled by the developers themselves, leading to inefficiencies and reduced productivity.
Andersen's seasoned team embarked on a multifaceted approach to address these issues comprehensively. First and foremost, a meticulous QA audit was conducted to assess the existing testing framework. Subsequently, a dedicated group of QA experts was integrated into the client's team to bolster testing efforts. Andersen devised a comprehensive proposal, outlining a strategy to optimize the testing process and improve overall quality.
The testing strategy was meticulously developed and implemented, accompanied by the appointment of a team of proficient QA leads. Load testing was introduced and fine-tuned to enhance application performance, significantly reducing API response times and page load durations. Crucially, the testing process was realigned with the Software Testing Life Cycle (STLC), ensuring a more structured and efficient approach. The culmination of Andersen's efforts bore fruit with remarkable results. The overall release quality improved by 48%, thanks to a significant reduction in defects. A diverse array of testing methodologies was introduced, further elevating product quality and reducing flaws. Performance issues that had long plagued the system were diligently identified and resolved, breathing new life into the platform.
Load testing, a pivotal addition to the project, improved request processing speed, significantly enhancing user experience. The introduction of automation played a crucial role in streamlining the testing process, reducing manual effort, and increasing test coverage. The addition of manual testers and automation engineers ensured an equitable distribution of workload, boosting productivity across the board.
With these remarkable achievements, Andersen's desire to deliver top-quality services has been underscored. “This project is a testament to our focus on financial software testing and commitment to driving innovation,” concluded one of the company’s QA leads. “We look forward to continuing to elevate our clients and set new standards for the industry.”
Andersen's finance-specific testing project for a web trader has not only addressed the pressing challenges faced by their client but has also set a new standard for quality in the financial services domain. Through meticulous planning and innovative solutions, Andersen has once again proven its prowess in delivering transformative results.
