From Chaos to Clarity: How Karine's Team Reduced Bugs by 70% with TestQuality

Company Overview
  • Industry: Research & Bioinformatics.
  • Leadership and Collaboration: Guided by Dr. Vincent Ferretti, a renowned bioinformatics researcher, we collaboratively develop methods and software to identify and characterize disease-causing genetic variations.
  • Team Size and Funding: Team of 30 professionals, funded exclusively by research grants.
  • Location: Montréal, Québec, Canada
  • Objective: To develop cutting-edge open-source bioinformatics methods and software, generously funded by research grants, to detect and characterize genetic variations responsible for diseases.

The Challenge

As our team grew, things became more complex. We had a mix of backend ETLs, APIs, and a frontend web application, and it became crucial to ensure top-notch quality. The existing testing methods faced the following issues:


  • Application problems when making changes to both the backend and frontend code.

  • Technical glitches during presentations.

  • Long and time-consuming bug fixes that caused delays in project completion.

Embracing TestQuality: Karine's Vision

    In our quest for a sophisticated yet cost-effective Test Management tool, we sought a solution that would:


    • Streamline regression testing strategies.

    • Effortlessly correlate failed tests with Jira.

    • Regularly monitor automated UI test outcomes.

    • Cultivate a productive rapport with our chosen tool for continuous improvement.


    Decision-Making Process

    Due to our reliance on research grants, we needed an intuitive, flexible, and cost-effective solution.
