Automated testing enhances and ensures the quality of Kiwa Impact

Throughout this year, Kiwa Impact has introduced automated testing as part of the system development and testing process. In the world of continuous application development, automated testing has become an essential part of the software development process. In this blog post, I will explore the diverse advantages of automated application testing and how it enhances application development efficiency and product quality.

Application testing is an essential part of software development to ensure performance, reliability, and security. One modern and efficient way to conduct tests is through automated application testing. By utilizing this approach, we can improve our testing process and ensure that our applications function seamlessly.

Manual testing forms the backbone of system testing:

Manual testing is a process where a tester manually executes various scenarios and test cases to ensure the functionality and user experience quality of the software. This method is essential for developing high-quality services for several reasons:

Coverage: Manual tests can identify complex use cases and conditions that automated tests may not necessarily cover. This ensures that the service performs as expected in various situations.

User Experience: Manual tests can simulate real-world usage scenarios, helping to ensure that end-users have a smooth and pleasant experience when using the service. For example, the usability and responsiveness of the user interface can be effectively evaluated through manual testing.

Prioritization: Manual tests allow testers and developers to prioritize and identify critical issues and factors affecting the user experience quickly, enabling faster response and implementation of corrective actions.

Automated testing enhances efficiency and detects anomalies

Time-saving and Efficiency

One of the significant benefits of automated application testing is time-saving. Automated tests can perform repetitive tasks faster and more accurately than manual testing. This frees up developers’ and testers’ time to focus on more creative and complex tasks, while automated tests handle routine checks.

Comprehensive Testing and Early Error Detection

Automated tests enable comprehensive test coverage. They can execute the same test scenario repeatedly in different environments and browsers, ensuring the application’s functionality under all conditions. Additionally, automated tests can detect errors early, when they are easier to fix and before they impact production.

Repeatability and Reliability

Automated tests are repeatable and reliable. They perform the same test cases consistently, reducing the risk of human errors. This gives the team confidence that the application behaves as expected at every stage of development.

Rapid Feedback Loop

Automated tests provide quick feedback to developers about the impact of code changes on the application. This rapid feedback loop promotes continuous integration and helps ensure that the team produces high-quality code at every development stage.

Cost-effectiveness in the Long Run

While implementing automated testing requires initial investments, it has proven to be cost-effective in a short time. Savings come from reduced manual testing costs, faster development processes, and fewer costs associated with production errors.

Improved Product Quality and User Experience

Automated application testing ensures that the application operates reliably and flawlessly. This leads to better product quality and user experience. Users can trust that the application functions smoothly in different environments, enhancing their overall experience.

The benefits of automated application testing are significant, and leveraging them can bring many positive impacts to the development process. Time-saving, comprehensive testing, early error detection, and improved product quality are just a few of the advantages that automated application testing offers, enhancing team productivity and product quality.


In service development, both manual and automated system testing are essential elements in ensuring high-quality software. Manual tests provide deep insights into the user experience and enable coverage of complex use cases, while automated tests offer speed, scalability, and repeatability. Together, these approaches enable continuous service development and provide end-users with a reliable and high-quality user experience.
