Software Testing for Startups & Small Businesses
Startups and small businesses need all the advantages they can get to compete in today’s economy. For companies that build software products, Ranorex Studio can be a major asset that increases productivity and revenue by automating tasks and saving your developers valuable time.
What Are the Advantages of Automation Testing?
Building tests without an automated testing platform such as Ranorex takes time away from your most experienced programmers. These employees are key to the project’s success, and their time could be much more valuable to the company elsewhere.
Ranorex Studio provides a clear return on investment by giving those programmers hours back into their weekly schedule. Automated tests can be run on Windows desktops, all the most popular web browsers, and mobile devices. Tests can also be executed on both real devices and emulators. Tests created with Ranorex are also more reliable because there is less room for human error.
Ranorex users can run tests across multiple platforms simultaneously and receive comprehensive reports on their results. By using DesignWise, developers can improve efficiency by developing only the tests they need for the relevant areas they care about. Cutting unnecessary tests will help your project finish faster. Ranorex is also natively integrated with Selenium WebDriver, which allows for parallel cross-browser testing.
Today’s customers are quick to delete applications that are buggy or slow, and there is almost always an alternative somewhere on the market. Ranorex Software can help your company build trust with its users by creating high-quality software that shows polish and optimization at launch.
Bugs that are caught earlier in development are less costly to fix, which is why developers need to ensure that every update they push has been thoroughly tested before release.
Ranorex is built from the ground up to have a user-friendly interface that makes it easy for members of the team with less experience in coding to still contribute to testing. With the Ranorex Recorder, more experienced QA staff can record their test processes for other staff to execute in different scenarios. The recorder enables users to add variables and validation steps to test to match different tasks.
A Business Case for Test Automation
Ranorex Studio is proven to improve the revenues of startups along with small- and medium-sized businesses. We’ve worked with a third-party research service to document their success, and we have withheld the client’s name where requested.
In one case, a small business computer software company saw an increase in product revenue and productivity by at least 40% in each area where they had previously experienced difficulties. The client reported significant challenges in the areas of test coverage, object identification, and automation.
The client used Ranorex Studio for end-to-end, functional UI, performance, regression, web service, and API tests. They reported that Ranorex increased tester productivity, saved testing costs, reduced development time to market, improved product quality, and increased product revenue.
Another small business computer services company reported that Ranorex Studio gave them a productivity boost of more than 20%. Developers were able to save at least six hours a week through our test automation tools. The company said Ranorex helped their team increase test efficiency, shorten test cycles, build robust and reliable automations, and improve their technical knowledge and skills.

We built Ranorex DesignWise to build optimized testing tools and eliminate gaps in coverage. DesignWise helps developers become even more efficient by ensuring that they only create the tests that they actually need. Its “coverage dial” and algorithms will prevent repetition and focus tests on specific areas to shorten test cycles.
DesignWise was also built with Behavioral Driven Development (BDD) in mind. Tests can be written in the Gherkin editor, which includes autocompleting and syntax highlighting features to ensure valid scripts.
