Blue Yonder WMS Test Library

Reduce manual testing for your project with Blue Yonder's test automation solution of choice.

Scale Your Deployment With Confidence

Whether you are considering a Blue Yonder solution or preparing for a SaaS version upgrade, the project plan likely includes time for solution testing. Enterprise product functionality is tested by the vendors, but the vendor’s product team is not responsible for testing the interaction of standard functionality with solution-specific business requirements and configuration.

Many times, manual testing comes down to the implementation team and operations SMEs spending days at their laptops churning through dozens of pass/fail test cases in a spreadsheet. Critical solution bugs may either be found, which could delay the project, or missed, which results in challenges during go-live. In traditional system implementation methodologies, this cycle begins again with every new version or site implementation. But we believe there is a better way.

Automated software testing provides a way to simultaneously improve solution quality and consistency while reducing the resources required for manual testing. Instead of waiting to test until the end of the development phase of the project, test automation allows you to start validating the solution earlier so you can stay on track and rest easier before go-live.
