Functional Testing Services

Functional testing is vital before going live with any system. With a SAP centred system, it is also vital to do testing across an often large, integrated infrastructure. Functional testing assures that your implementation of SAP meets your business requirements.

Functional testing is the creation of the functional tests in response to the business requirements that underpin the system being tested.

Time and resources are always limited; QualiTest provides a functional testing service that identifies the critical areas to focus testing resources on. Our Risk Based Testing (RBT) methodology enables us to scope, design and build a set of SAP best practice test assets whilst saving time by focusing on only what’s really important to the business, allowing our clients to cut out unnecessary testing investments.

Putting your functional testing into the hands of QualiTest testing experts ensures you are always working toward best practice; our unique testing methodology reduces the testing preparation by up to 35% and testing execution by up to 50%, finding critical defects on early stages and allowing a smooth go-live with no business disruptions.
