Adoption of new working practices and methodologies has meant that organisations are constantly challenging themselves to get products and services to market faster than ever and in doing so are now having to think very hard how this can be achieved. We all know that first to market gets the spoils, so there is a lot at stake getting the delivery model right. Test Automation is just one way of speeding up your project delivery and in doing so building up a regression pack of test scripts that can be run with little effort in a short amount of time.
We all know about the benefits of Staff Company Days, they are a great medium for passing on new company information and sharing thoughts on latest trends in the world of business. It also allows the whole team to come together, connect and most importantly rewards your staff for their tireless efforts over the year and allow them to have some collective fun. Recently nFocus Testing took its team to the Seasoned Cooking School at Catton Hall.

In our experience of working with clients who have tried to automate their testing, there are a number of common factors that caused them to fail to meet their intended objectives or give them any cost savings.
