How did we meet?

You go places when you work hard to find that perfect quality for your product in every high and low. And that’s how we met Playsimple Games thanks to Santosh Mannar. He is a QA Manager at PlaySimple Games leading a massive Test team of 40+ members. With such a scaling team Santosh had to promptly work faster with a more consistent high-quality to keep up with their fast-paced market. And that’s a very big goal given that the team was using the tedious and time-consuming Excel Sheets for all of their Test Management needs. For obvious reasons, Excel wasn’t a good choice anymore knowing that they had to make a whisk move, going forward. So, there couldn’t be a better time than this for a Test friend like QA Touch to jump in for help.

The Journey

After several explorations and considerations, the team decided to migrate to an online Test Management Tool. This ‘Quality’ journey to a SaaS has led Play Simple Games and their QA Manager, Santosh Mannar to QA Touch. Now, how did we go from their little discovery to a Test Saviour? Let’s find out with this written set-forth time lapse!

Their Growing Challenges with Excel sheets

  • With 45000+ cases it was challenging to organize the google sheets. ❌
  • Reusability was difficult. ❌
  • The review process was time-consuming. ❌
  • No integration support with other tools. ❌
  • No traceability for test activity and test run. ❌
  • Report generation is a pain with spreadsheets. ❌
  • No metrics and insights provided by the spreadsheet were more in addition to the pain. ❌
