Business Problem

Game testing is one of the fundamental stages in the process of game development. Our client, one of the leading gaming companies, was struggling with growing market competition. Being tight on budget, they sought the best digital and casino games testing services to deliver high-quality games that can run smoothly on multiple devices in the market. They wanted to implement agile development methodologies to release their games faster in the market. Also, the client was losing customers due to a poorly developed game with bugs and errors.

Business Analysis

Our Testing CoE connected with their team to know their requirements in detail. We analyzed their problem and looked for ways to improve their gaming applications and reduce their time-to-market significantly. Our team created a customized strategy based on an agile approach to help the client deliver robust error-free games to their customers.

PureSoftware Solution

After thoroughly analyzing the client requirements, we deployed flexible teams with domain experts experienced in testing multiple gaming genres to ensure work continuity and deliver the best results within the stipulated timeline. This accelerated the testing cycle and shortened the deadlines for game releases. We used Apache Jmeter to verify the application performance along with the API testing. Our experts provided end-to-end feedback during application testing so that the client can take timely decisions and make necessary changes during the application development cycle. This eventually reduced the time required to release an app in the market, making it readily available for the customers.
