It has become part of our daily life; the use of good useful and free apps that make life easier for us. Consider for example WhatsApp, Instagram, Gmail, Google Calendar, Skype etc … This is no different in the business world. There are many examples of this. Reason enough for us to put Testersuite’s side project in the spotlight. Get acquainted with Defectsuite, the free tool for defect management.
Defect management with spreadsheets
For many testers it is a familiar (horror) image. Complex spreadsheets filled with test scripts, test scenarios and fields to process defects and associated screen shots. Boring, confusing and not particularly inviting when it comes to defect management. For the test coordinator and test manager who have to process all the data from the spreadsheets it is the same dullness. Reason enough for us to create a better way of processing test results. This is how Defectsuite came to life. Fully inline with our philosophy (that is in our DNA) that mature test management should be made easy.
Defect management with Defectsuite
Defectsuite is a very user-friendly defect management tool with which a streamlined process within reach. Test products and requirements can be registered and managed in a simple manner. Because all data is retained in Defectsuite, it is always possible to detract the history of already completed test cycles. The powerful workflow functionality promotes cooperation between manager, testers and developers. And Defectsuite can be used simultaneously for multiple test runs. Whether it involves extensive test procedures or minor changes.
One of the basic principles of Defectsuite is powerful simplicity. As mentioned earlier, a tester does not want to get entangled in many different spreadsheets. That is why we made it possible in Defectsuite to determine which people will be admitted per test process. These can be internal but also external persons. It is therefore possible to give an external party such as a supplier access to a test process and manage them as one of your own testers. How easy do you want it to be, collaborate centrally with one current overview!
Simple smart reporting
As a test manager you naturally want to stay informed of your test projects at all times. But a jumble of information is not desirable. With Defectsuite, you determine yourself as an administrator whether you are automatically informed about one or more defects via e-mail notifications. Testers and developers can easily share comments with each other around a defect. This ensures effective communication and handling of defects.
The reporting module in Defectsuite gives you insights in the handling of the defect. You will also receive information about the products and requirements in the test process. Defectsuite contains standard reports on defects per status, per requirement, per test type or per period. Reports can easily be printed and exported to PDF. And if your management works less smartly than you do, you can still easily export your reports from Defectsuite to Excel.
