Rainforest QA

Continuous QA platform for testing Web apps

4.87/5 (15 reviews)

Rainforest QA overview

Software companies are adopting fast-moving development methods like continuous integration and continuous deployment, but QA testing has remained the weak point for many teams who want to move fast. Fortunately, you don’t have to settle for slow moving manual testing techniques to move fast and build great software.

Rainforest is a continuous QA platform that leverages qualified testers to help companies create continuous QA testing processes that fit their CI/CD development workflow. With Rainforest, teams run functional and regression tests in plain English, and receive results in under 30 minutes. Anything you can do in a browser, Rainforest QA can test. On-demand around the clock, Rainforest is available 24/7 for testing when you're ready, not when your QA team is free. Rainforest is powered by qualified human testers, which means it remains flexible enough that you won't have to rewrite tests every time you change your code.

Forward thinking companies like Zenefits, Librato, and Intuit use the Rainforest QA platform to deploy as often as they need to without the risk of breaking things in the process.

Easier to write and maintain than automated UI tests

Rainforest provides end-to-end testing without the high cost of dedicated QA resources, and without the high cost of writing and maintaining automated UI tests.It is easy to write set up the tests, to run them, and to edit them as needed. No special knowledge or skill is needed for any of this. The customer support is phenomenal, because you can always chat the Rainforest team and they get back to you right away. Also it is easy to schedule runs, and they have really improved the visibility of results, as in, you can see exactly what happened when a tester went through the test including a screen shot, the directions given, and then notes from the tester about anything their description of any problem observed. Multiple (usually 3+) testers are assigned to a test per browser when you "run" a test.
