Testsigma also announced new GenAI capabilities to their low-code platform, enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of QA (Quality Assurance) teams. These GenAI features allow QA team members to generate test scenarios and test cases from various inputs such as URL, product designs, screenshots, and Jira stories. This advancement not only accelerates the process of writing and executing tests but also ensures comprehensive test coverage. The AI can suggest test scenarios to identify and cover gaps that may arise due to code changes, thus maintaining the robustness and reliability of the software being developed.

Testsigma has also unveiled a new product specifically designed for the Salesforce ecosystem, leveraging their robust low-code platform. This new offering is tailored to meet the needs of Salesforce developers and administrators, enabling them to accelerate automated salesforce testing significantly. By using this solution, teams can achieve a tenfold increase in test development speed compared to traditional testing methods.

In addition to its simplicity, Testsigma is also enterprise-ready and provides flexibility. Enterprises use the platform for their end-to-end testing needs including web apps, mobile apps, desktop apps, APIs and with their latest product, Salesforce. Leading companies such as Cisco, Oscar, Bosch and Samsung use Testsigma to streamline their testing processes and ensure robust software quality.

Testsigma was founded by Rukmangada Kandyala, Pratheep Velicherla, Vikram Chaitanya, and Rajesh Reddy in 2019. The team comes with rich experience in developing enterprise SaaS applications for Zoho, Freshworks, Oracle and HPE.

Rukmangada Kandyala (KR), Founder and CEO of Testsigma, said, “Quality engineering and DevOps teams currently use Testsigma’s low code test automation platform to test web, mobile and desktop apps in addition to database and APIs. With the new GenAI capabilities and our new product for the Salesforce ecosystem, we get one step closer to our vision of building the operating system for quality engineering teams.
