Test Automation ensures faster time to market, constant additional enhancements, reduced regression run time and enhanced test coverage. However, it also often fails due to business needs not being defined clearly.
Some of the critical business needs would include:
Improving Testing Efficiency
Saving cost & time
Having identified the needs the next stage involves planning, correct staffing, right tool and technology. This should be supported by clear-cut measurable objectives, automation readiness, storing and managing test data, and implement industry best practices & methodologies.
A well thought out framework for test automation enables all of this.
Indium Software has revolutionized software testing through its IP-led testing, which is based-on the best practices delivered over the years to customers globally. Branded as ‘iAccelerate’, the IP-based suite of testing frameworks and tools include iSAFE, iMobi, iFACT and iAVA. Indium Software’s proprietary test accelerators plug into every stage of the SDLC to bring in the best-in-class enablers for reducing the TCO and deliver tangible RoI. Our selection of tools (open-source / licensed), testing frameworks and methodologies makes us distinctive – the best-tool agnostic shop.
Indium Software’s IP-led test automation frameworks are customizable, portable and re-usable. Most importantly, they enable customers to reap the test automation RoI in just a few weeks. They enhance test coverage, running target-based parallel execution and efficiently analyzing the root-cause.

Indium Software’s iAccelerate Suite
Indium Software’s customisable, portable and efficient test automation frameworks cater to different testing needs and include:
Indium’s Software Automation Framework Enhanced (iSAFE) is a customizable and portable software testing framework for web applications. A tool agnostic framework, it can be used across commercial and open source products such as QTP, Selenium, SilkTest, TestComplete, Ranorex, etc and it can work on any scripting language.
Keeping in mind that manual testing of apps on each device cannot address the need for a shorter time to market. Indium has developed iMobi, a robust Mobile Automated Testing Framework, to automate the testing process and ensure quality throughout grid testing at lower cost and time.
Cross-browser compatibility is essential for every web application and needs to be comprehensively tested across browsers and platforms. Indium Software Framework for Accelerated Compatibility Testing (iFACT) is designed to provide a competitive edge by completely eliminating compatibility issues.
iAVA (Indium Software Anti-Vulnerability Assessment Framework) is a culmination of Indium Software decades of experience with Security Testing and helps in performing security test execution, manual test penetration, automated application scanning, code review and analysis, log defects, initiate remediation of defects and complete retesting.
The frameworks code Indium Software’s best testing practices implemented over the last two decades since its inception. It takes cognizance of the industry best practices of the company as well as the testing tools and requirements. Reusability, portability and automated communication alerts along with deep engagements with the clients at every stage of testing have enabled Indium Software to become a preferred testing partner for several leading organisations across the globe, across verticals.
