KIDLY provides an effortless experience for children and adult shoppers, with products tested by little ones and approved by parents before reaching the shelves.
KIDLY did not have any designated test engineers or a dedicated QA team. The responsibility for any type of testing fell to a small team of Engineers whose primary task is the development and maintenance of KIDLY’s retail-focused web application. They needed a solution that would reduce the overhead generated by manual testing, and increase test coverage without acquiring more resources. The solution had to have a low barrier to entry for fast adoption.
Virtuoso has been fantastic and supportive at onboarding us and getting us up and running with a suite of tests.
- Natasha Bates, Lead Front-end Engineer
KIDLY has gone from having no dedicated testing team or QA engineers, to having a fully automated testing suite in place that requires minimal effort from their development team to author and maintain. Virtuoso will continue to be integrated into the day-to-day work of their engineering team and has drastically increased the scalability of testing and quality assurance processes in the organization. The low entry barrier that requires no upskilling or intensive ramp-up means that KIDLY engineers were able to avoid disruption to their normal work day and still put together a comprehensive, robust test plan that can be run at any time, in any intervals. “You need a QA team or at least a test engineer to implement proper testing...” - myth busted!
