just started in new company as sw tester / (sw test manager). Before they did not have a dedicated tester there so I am the first one and only one now.
There are about ~10 sw developer in team.
Product have HW that connects to Cloud server and there is web page where to control / see data it send. I should do manual testing and verify that data it send is correct (via web page)
There is a testplan in Excel and those cases are now run manually. I really thing some cases are must to automate (like loging, create some data, delete some data, and testing same with different browsers)
TestReport is now created by entering issues to this Excel sheet.
Redmine is in use(as issue tracking? I have not used that before: only worked with TFS & QC)
Now my job as a tester/test manager role is to make this QA process work better.
As company is not very big I am looking not-expensive solutions.
I have experience working with Ranorex Studio and some basic C# coding skills.
As there are multiple options to choose I have come to these tools:
* Katalon Studio for web page test automation:
- free and easy to use?
- can also work with Android app testing?
- can make integration to Redmine?
* TestRail for test management tool
- excel test sheet import
- better testreport that excel :)
- can be used for automation test / manual test
- integration to Katalon Studio?
- integration to Redmine?
qTest sounded like a good option also but price is not open. Maybe to professional / expensive for my needs?
Is there somethink I am now doing wrong / not thinking? I have experiense as a tester (always as a member of a bigger test team with separate test manager) but I have every not needed to "set up testing process from scratch".
I really would like to hear some thoughts / some suggestions.
Now sometimes I really feel like being "alone" as the only QA member and little bit unsure I am doing right here :(
Thank you in forehand for any help!
