The Benefits of Testing Automation

Solutions like Web FASTest and VirtualATM that facilitate the broad use of automation within the payments testing environment will help your organization realize a number of significant benefits:

1. Increased Efficiency
Automation complements and enhances your manual testing efforts, enabling teams to run more tests, faster. Automation also provides the opportunity to schedule and run large sets of tests, for things like regression testing, at any time.
3. Expanded Test Coverage
Automating your functional tests will result in an ever expanding library of messages and transactions that can be used and reused as conditions require. The more tests that you can automate, the more coverage you gain.
5. Enhanced Security
The speed, flexibility and accuracy that automation provides will give your teams the extra time they need to ensure your payment systems are secure against external threats and operating at peak efficiency.
7. Reduced Costs

Testing automation will help enhance your corporate bottom line by increasing resource productivity, improving overall product quality, minimizing outages, as well as strengthening customer loyalty and protecting shareholder value. 

2. Improved Accuracy
Automation helps reduce the risk of human error, ensuring that tests are performed consistently and accurately every time - improving the reliability and quality of your payment offerings, minimizing rework, and increasing customer satisfaction.
4. Faster Time-to-Market
Since automated testing increases efficiency, expands test coverage and improves accuracy, your teams will complete projects more quickly and gain valuable time to work on more strategic initiatives, like developing innovative new products and services that consumers want.
6. Flexibility & Scalability
The broad use of automation in payment testing provides both the flexibility and scalability organizations need to quickly respond and adapt to changing corporate priorities, new business opportunities and evolving consumer behavior.
8. Superior Customer Experience

One of the primary goals of testing is to ensure that your payment products, services and systems are always available, secure and ready to provide a superior customer experience, no matter when or where a consumer chooses to transact.
