Software QA with Selenium

The DataPoint team utilizes an arsenal of methods and tools in our valiant effort to seamlessly update and improve the user experience of DataPoint.


With today’s fast paced development lifecycles and constant updates to applications, you need to keep the bugs at bay. A powerful tool in our arsenal for exterminating these bugs is an automated testing suite called Selenium.


Selenium allows us to simulate actual users of DataPoint through scripted interactions at a much faster speed than a user can perform themselves. In short, it is like having a computer perform these hundreds to even thousands of user actions and then raising their hand when a bug is found. The manual tests that previously took a team hours to perform, can now be accomplished in minutes.


What this means is a higher confidence of implementation for updates and new features added to DataPoint, which in return means quicker response times to issues and a painless user experience.
