Uncover overlooked issues before they harm your brand
When you’re launching or refreshing a website or app, a top priority is to rapidly identify and fix defects that only emerge at go-live. Often, it’s the first time several releases have come together into a single release. Inevitably, there will be hitches.
If you’ve been developing and deploying to a test environment where elements like integrations were not available, you won’t have had the opportunity to uncover every issue in the pre-live environments. Post-release testing helps you reveal previously overlooked issues and unintended outcomes. If you do it fast and thoroughly, you can correct faults before conversion rates drop. If you don’t, you could undermine the customer experience and damage your brand.
Digivante’s post-release testing delivers
Run rapid post-release tests as soon as you release into the live environment, usually as a subset of your regression tests. Minimise the user impact of issues by flagging and fixing them in a short timeframe.
Use this subset of essential test cases as a quality gate to identify quickly whether the release is acceptable or not. Even in a DevOps or CI/CD environment, quality gates should still indicate whether the release is sound or not.
Digital products working the way they are supposed to protects the reputation of the company for delivering on promises and keeping customers happy. Also protects the professional reputations of the people working on the release.
How Digivante post-release testing works
The value of Digivante as your post-release testing partner
When you launch a new website or app, it’s a pivotal moment in building trust and loyalty with users. Today’s busy, digitally savvy customers and users expect a frictionless, error-free online experience every time. We’ll deliver the testing assignment rapidly efficiently: our standard target is just four hours.
Our professional testers sprint systematically through your website or app to check that it performs consistently on different devices and browsers, avoiding nasty surprises and time-consuming investigations further down the line. They’ll make sure your new functionality delivers a positive user experience.
Shifting post-release testing right
When you’re connecting to live integrations, not sandboxes, your linking accounts and passwords may be completely different. Sometimes coding is needed to get something to work in the test environment specifically: if it’s still there when you go live it can cause issues.
Post-release testing is already on the right of your software development cycle – that’s why it’s crucial to run it. If you’ve spent months testing in a test environment, all your efforts are undermined when you don’t check live issues after launch. Don’t deploy a release and walk away.
