A leading real estate firm reduces
API testing time by 60%
The US-based client is a leading provider of real estate services such as brokerage, property management, development, rentals, sales, valuation and advisory, capital markets, insurance, securities and other services. Specialists in managing, owning, and developing commercial and multifamily residential apartment communities, the client ensures real estate transactions are closed according to the purchase agreement. The real estate client aims to provide a digital closing experience with a modern approach, transparent pricing on closing fees, and more control for their partners.
The leading Real estate firm client intended to manage the complete life cycle of a property right from property listing, connecting trusted lenders to closing the purchased property using the web and mobile-based applications. With an understanding of continuous testing, the client intended to implement API testing to ensure the quality, performance, security, and reliability of the web and mobile-based application, resulting in faster release cycles. Sparity acted quickly and implemented API Testing to establish a test automation framework that addressed the client’s challenges.
To manage the complete life cycle of a property and stay ahead of the competition and meet customer’s demand for new features/integrations, the client adopted web and mobile-based applications to meet their business goals. The client faced challenges to carry out API testing and intended to run an API regression test to verify the service that complies with business logic. Also, keeping up with their fast-paced development cycles was tricky as changes in UI break the test cases and require constant updates. Furthermore, heavy dependency on UI and manual testing was slow and cumbersome. Thereby QA became a bottleneck inhibiting faster release cycles.
Streamlined and accelerated
API testing torun above 1000
tests multiple times a day.
Generated API scripts, and testing
was carried out by calling API
