Klaros-Testmanagement goes mobile! Version 4.0 of the web application for maintenance, organisation and evaluation of test data has been enhanced with an app and now allows execution of manual test cases on a mobile device like a smartphone or tablet.

With the release of the Mobile Edition of Klaros-Testmanagement, verit Informationssysteme
GmbH now boasts the first app for execution of manual test cases on a mobile device.
This allows location-independent execution of test cases as well as offering extended
documentation of results using audio, video and GPS data.


The app allows the tablet or smartphone to be used as a modern, extended checklist. The

management of the data, creation of test cases, test suites, requirements and iterations
as well as the evaluation of results all take place in the database driven web application.
The tester's jobs are loaded to the mobile device once they have been specified in the
web application. The tester can then test a vehicle or machine function and document
the results on site. This separation of test specification and execution simplifies the
tester's job.


This offers many advantages to testers and helps to create precise and
traceable test results faster and more easily:

*Independence of location and active network connection*
The mobile device can act like a modern, enhanced checklist, e.g. when
testing device or machine functions.

*Extra options for documentation*
The sensors on the mobile device (camera, microphone, GPS) offer more
options for documentation of test results.

*Separation of administration of test data and execution*
Test execution and documentation are simplified by separating them
from the technical tasks of test creation and administration. This
allows the testers to concentrate on execution of test cases and
removes the need for additional training.

The Klaros-Testmanagement app can also be used while at a stationary
computer to execute a test and document its results. The system under
test can stay on screen while recording of test results is happening
on a separate, mobile device.

The app synchronizes automatically with the web application.
This means that the test results will be directly uploaded to the
web application as soon as a network connection is available. The
results can then be processed and released to re-test. If there is
no network connection, the synchronization process is carried out
later.
