TechValidate Research on TestRail

TestRail Case Study

Vernier Software & Technology


This case study of Vernier Software & Technology is based on a July 2017 survey of TestRail customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

TestRail models the test case, suite, run, plan, results paradigm very well. With a little attentiveness to detail and test case execution estimates you can develop a good understanding of the amount of time it takes to execute a test plan. Now we get routine, repeatable test coverage, and releases with less than 6% failures at release. Customized “Deferred Failures” tell us at a glance when those 6% are explicitly queued for future, post-release work.


The business challenges that led the profiled company to evaluate and ultimately select TestRail:

  • Top pain points as a Tester:
    • Developing strong relationships with developers, other testers, BA’s/PO’s/PM’s
  • Top challenges that require Test Management:
    • Deployment and the idea that progressing through various environments with associated (possibly automated) testing will increase confidence that the product can be deployed successfully and will work properly in a production situation
