Frequently Asked Questions

What businesses benefit most from test management tools?

One of the biggest benefits of test management tools is the automation and analytics of tests. As a result, businesses running more tests benefit most from test management tools, particularly if they can reduce manual processes via automation.

Do all test management tools help automate tests?

All test management tools at least include some automation features like test scheduling and data collection, but some offer more robust automation tools for creating and running tests. Not every test management tool offers these features, though, so businesses should select a tool that meets their automation needs.

Do test management tools act as bug tracking tools?

Test management tools often include bug tracking features for tests. That said, they don’t find bugs in anything but tests, so they shouldn’t be used as a businesses sole bug finding and tracking tool.
