ITS Announces Availability of New Test Automation Platform

Dallas, TX – June 8, 2015 – ITS, an insurance consulting and services firm specializing in the design, implementation, and utilization of technology across all segments and lines of business, is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the ITS Test Automation Platform (ITAP).

As evidenced by an industry failure rate averaging between 50 and 75 percent, technology implementations are difficult for insurance organizations to manage and complete successfully. Even harder is finding the time, budget, and experienced resources to perform the necessary testing of critical processes affected by a system implementation or upgrade. Designed to be utilized by non-technical personnel, and to increase the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the testing process, ITAP redefines how automated functional tests (AFTs) are created and maintained.

“Utilizing ITAP, insurance organizations and technology vendor partners can focus on the test information itself, isolating test automation intricacies in easy-to-build modules that are reusable across a wide spectrum of test scenarios,” said Mike Vana, president at ITS. “ITAP integrates easily with any policy administration system on the market, enabling the creation of repeatable processes and test scripts which can quickly identify flaws in new or modified functions such as policy, billing, claims, and rating.”

Available under a traditional license or SaaS delivery model, ITAP dramatically accelerates development and eases maintenance when a system change affects a large portion of the test suite. The net result is reduced demand for testing resources, broader test coverage, and increased quality of production releases.

“We have seen the pain and agony insurance company clients go through trying to implement automated functional testing, and we knew that whatever platform we developed needed to revolutionize the process,” said Chris Belle, senior vice president at ITS. “ITAP is not only highly-flexible and customizable, it’s quick to setup, and we’ve built templates for many of the more common test scenarios that can be applied to any web-based insurance system. The functionality we are providing really is transformational for insurance organizations.”
