Test Automation for Warehouse Management Systems
The best complement to manual system testing for your warehouse system deployment.
Scale Your Deployment With Confidence
Introducing test automation into your warehouse management system means building and executing tests specific to your operations which takes time and effort. The Cycle platform, accelerates your test automation efforts through pre-built utilities and saves you thousands of hours as you expand to new sites or your client requirements change.
Created by Implementation Experts
Cycle is designed from the ground up to be scalable to every deployment, customizable for every business process, extensible to support every unique requirement, and maintainable for a constantly evolving warehouse system environment. It is composed of hundreds of prewritten utilities as well as the reusable building blocks that can be assembled to fit your business process and vendor of choice. Whether you have a best-of-breed packaged system or a homegrown solution, Cycle can power your test automation efforts to help you expand with reduced risk.
We support systems from vendors like:
- Blue Yonder
- Manhattan Associates
- Körber (formerly HighJump)
Included with the Cycle Platform
Cycle includes nearly a thousand prebuilt utilities that can be assembled into test cases that correspond to your unique business processes across a variety of interfaces including web/browser, API, database and telnet.
Incorporate Cycle into your CI/CD workflow alongside solutions like Jenkins, Bamboo, and more to focus on deploying value rather than focusing on test maintenance.
Cycle is highly configurable, and allows you to design your automation pipeline to meet your testing requirements.
Patented volume testing functionality, allows for scalable parallel testing while simulating accurate day-in-the-life style testing. Address and avoid disruptions before customers are impacted.
Cycle encourages team-powered testing because better communication is the key to valuable testing, and ultimately seamless deployments.
Reduce Risk As Processes Change
Cycle’s unique ability to embed continuous testing into the development, upgrade and deployment process ensures you can easily visualize and understand any business risks associated with your latest system changes. Cycle is key to ensuring you can always keep up with client and business requirements while minimizing implementation risk.
If you’re in need of specialized scripts for your warehouse systems or help with the implementation process, the Cycle professionals can act as subject matter experts, estimating how long customization will take and helping reduce time of service. Since some software will require script building, service hours can accelerate automation implementation.
