Among the most important benefits of automated QA, the following stand out:
One of the biggest hurdles when doing consistent app releases is the repetitive software testing required to test each product's features and eliminate any bugs that do show up. When done manually, the whole process slows down and causes a delay in the final release for customers.
By doing an automated test, the scripts can be executed many times with different hardware and software configurations, plus they can be running 24 hours a day, saving a lot of time.
The automated test is more effective than a manual test, so the quality of the final product increases. By automating quality control, the company also broadens the coverage of the process, touching every aspect of the product. QA teams can now run thousands of automated test cases at the same time and across multiple platforms and devices.
An automated quality test deeply scans applications and verifies memory data, tables, and internal file structure.
When an automated QA test is applied, functional and regression tests are executed without any human intervention, so QA team members can apply their knowledge to other advanced and more careful tests.
With automated testing, experienced QA resources can be used to create better test cases, improving product quality. This means they spend less time on regular, repetitive testing procedures.
