A Fortune 500 manufacturing and consumer products company implements automated testing suites for its consumer applications.
Our client’s Quality Automation team was facing pressure to implement cost savings measures during a period when their scope of responsibility increased while maintaining their current quality and output levels. They needed a team of automation experts to create and deliver automation suites for their consumer applications. The client's testing team could not take on additional work and could only support a limited scope. They were looking for a partner who could provide qualified consultants to help them meet financial constraints while increasing feature velocity. Apex was chosen to support the effort because of our prior history of successful engagements and our near-shore capabilities for supporting cutting-edge technologies. Combining these abilities with our innovation-driven mindset for continuous improvement made us the right partner to support this initiative.
