MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Fanfare, a provider of testing solutions for equipment manufacturers, today announced that it has launched its latest software product –Fanfare iTest™ Personal. This new, downloadable product is a productivity-enhancement tool for feature and device testers who still do a majority of their job manually. With iTest Personal, quality assurance (QA) teams and developers can build and run tests, capture and record all testing information, and automatically generate documentation that can be shared easily regardless of location or language. These features enable testers and developers at all skill levels to test quickly and accurately, leaving behind dated approaches such as manual testing and scripting.

"iTest Personal is addressing a critical void in the market by providing software that simplifies device testing and narrows the gap for testers without a wide range of scripting abilities," said Vanessa Alvarez, Associate Analyst, Yankee Group. "Device testers can focus on product testing, rather than spending their days performing manual, repetitive tasks. Companies that deploy this product will no doubt see a boost in productivity."

Before iTest Personal, testers would spend hours or days performing manual and repetitive tasks, from setting up devices and configuring test beds to communicating test reports. Now, all actions and tests can be captured, replayed and easily edited across multiple protocols. This enables testers to review and replay actions and commands created days, weeks or months ago. iTest Personal also removes barriers to productivity such as language and location by creating clear, easy-to-understand test reports that document all test information—setup, test actions, and responses—so that others can easily reproduce bugs and validate fixes. Tests can now be replayed with a single mouse click, increasing the efficiency of the overall testing process.

"Organizations of all sizes can benefit from iTest Personal," said Tom Ryan, CEO of Fanfare. "iTest Personal provides a competitive edge for companies who are just starting on the path to automation, while allowing developers and feature testers to contribute to automation initiatives already in place at larger, more-established organizations. By implementing a test tool that is accessible to all levels of the QA team, high-tech equipment manufacturers can deliver quality, complex devices to their customers at a much quicker rate."
