CUSTOMER BUSINESS OBJECTIVES

This manufacturing company pioneers the specialty surgical table. It has revolutionized the industry in the last 40+ years collaborating with surgeons and healthcare providers to bridge the gaps in operating room inefficiencies. Their products simplify procedures, improve precision, reduce risks, and radically change the surgical table market. Being the largest medical devices manufacturers, they specialize in orthopaedic and spine surgery tables.

THE CHALLENGE

One of the changes they wanted to implement was testingtheir business processes more efficiently to continue theinnovation-driven culture and bring about enterprisetransformation.

These business processes spanned SAP, Salesforce, and various other technologies.

Their primary challenge was ensuring business processes within and across SAP and Salesforce business systems meet regulatory and quality standards.

To achieve this, the current testing methodologies posed the following setbacks:

  • While some of the testing was automated, most of it was still manual. It was tedious, time-consuming,and error-prone.
  • SAP was the core business application, and the team faced various issues with automating its testing.
  • End-to-end test automation was far from being a reality as the team faced challenges with tedious manual testing and code-driven automated testing that delivered lower quality.

  • A high combined effort of 16,800-person testing-hours at $650K costs incurred.
  • Even after bearing higher costs and efforts, the team achieved only 20% test automation coverage, testing only one scenario/week.
  • The User Quality Acceptance was low.

Upon carefully assessing the challenges and the changes, they opted for Avo as their test automation solution.
