100% Test Coverage, Guaranteed !
Why Test your software?Atpresent, when the market presses software companies to develop more complex and sophisticated projects in shorter than ever timeframes, the importance of high-quality and effective test process cannot be underestimated. A lot of companies were forced out of the market because of their failure to deliver high quality products under tight deadlines. In most of the cases, this failure was caused by a too slow testing process.
Test automation can improve the development process of a software product in many cases. The automation of tests is initially associated with increased effort, but the related benefits will quickly pay off through Increased Test Speed, Test Efficiency, Decreased Costs and shorter Time to Market, Increased Confidence and Greater Test Coverage.
Automated tests run fast, making it cost-effective for software products with a long maintenance life. It gives ability to quickly react to ever-changing software systems and requirements when testing in agile environment. New test cases are automated continuously and can be added to existing test suite in parallel to the development of the software itself.
The Popular e-Business ideology means quicker company response to the market needs. However, at present we face a new era of new business approach, known as m-Business (business model based on mobile telecommunications) that raises the race to even higher levels. This new approach means that you entrust even more information and tasks to probably unstable and buggy software; hence customers’ concern about quality increases. So, if you want to create winning software product you should pay special attention to testing. Nevertheless, you need a good testing plan to ensure a successful and cost-effective testing.
” Testing is the process of examining an application to ensure it fulfills the requirements for which it was designed and meets quality expectations. More importantly, testing ensures the application meets customer expectations.Microsoft,

CHROMEIS Productline of Testing:
Often times, great apps fall victim to their own success. If 20,000 concurrent users suddenly start accessing an app, it can bring even the best apps to its knees.
Ask yourself 2 questions:
Is your app ready to handle its own success?
This is a type of testing which is almost impossible for most organizations to do on their own.
Speed and the quick responsiveness of applications are the key factors that drive a successful business. Software failing under peak business pressures and performance issues under load along with bottlenecks in resources are huge issues that big organizations are fighting against.
CHROMEIS provides resources, tools, and even testing environments to run a reliable Performance, Load and Stress testing to simulate real live users and monitor the application behavior under unexpected load of users.
Performance testing determines the responsiveness, throughput, reliability, and scalability of a system under given workload.
Why do Performance Testing?
Performance testing usually addresses these objectives:
- Assess production readiness
- Evaluate against performance criteria
- Compare performance characteristics of multiple systems or system configurations
- Find the source of performance problems
- Tune the Support System
- Find throughput levels
- Determine compliance with performance goals and requirements
- Collect other performance-related data to help stakeholders make informed decisions
- Ensure the hardware configuration is suitable for the application’s performance

Agile Performance Testing
You can also talk to us about Agile Performance testing. A simple and flexible approach to performance testing, which cuts the weight out of the traditional performance testing model and adapts to your agile testing methodology! XP? Incremental? Scrum or Kanban?
Our approach is as simple as this:
Embraces change during a project’s life cycle
Iterates with the project release plan
Encourages planning just far enough in advance for team coordination, but not so far that the plan is likely to need significant revision in order to execute
We help you with the tool acquisition since there are many tools in the market, but most of them don’t have the credibility to produce reliable results and uncover what needs to be improved before the product goes live.
With Black-box testing, we treat the software as a “black box”, examining functionality without any knowledge of internal implementation. The tester is only aware of what the software is supposed to do, not how it does it. Black-box testing is the best test technique to examine the requirements and features of the application, that’s why others call this type of testing as Functional Test.
Our testers are very experience in this type of testing and they are the best when it comes to mimicking the end user actions and reactions. We follow these methods in Black-box testing: equivalence partitioning, boundary value analysis, all-pairs testing, state transition tables, decision table testing, fuzz testing, model-based testing and specification-based testing.
Is the application you’re about to release functionally fit? Are you sure?
When an application isn’t tested for all possible scenarios, it produces:
Poor user experience
Outcome? Users flock to alternatives which are just a tap, swipe or a click away.
The reasons for this, and key limitations many development teams face, include:
Unclear identification of different functions and how they affect other functions
Unavailability of thorough testing data, and mapping of desired outputs
Limited availability of fully enabled test environment
Unavailability of independent and skilled testing professionals
We can help!
ChromeIS will support you in pursuit of perfection and higher ROI. Our fully customizable functional testing services are ready to meet any & all challenging end user requirements and pressing timelines.
Our approach starts with exploratory testing where our team plays around with the application. Based on their experience, they gradually get methodical, develop a scenario matrix and execute all possible test cases to assess application quality.
ChromeIS Functional Testing Framework
Partners in Success!
Engage us right from the beginning! Testing and QA should be tightly coupled with your development process, irrespective of the process you are following. Our resources blend in with various development processes; be it traditional, incremental or agile! Testing is one of the most important steps of software engineering life cycle and you cannot simply ignore it!
Exploratory software testing is a powerful approach to testing especially when used with Agile project. It is an approach to software testing that is concisely described as simultaneous learning, test design and test execution. While the software is being tested, the tester learns things that together with experience and creativity generate new good tests to run.
This approach of testing is highly related to Agile Test methodology, where minimal amount of documentation is produced along with sprint/iteration short time. It gives a quicker feedback about the state of the software in compare of running structured scripted test methods.

In the ever changing environment of banking and government enterprises, there are new demands that call for minor corrections or continuous enhancements. It is important that your business activities do not suffer disruptions while these changes are being implemented. You can achieve this by employing our Business-As-Usual testers who will quickly ramp up and prepare the test environment and ensure your current application has no bugs and the new changes don’t produce new bugs.
Our dedicated BAU test team checks for bugs in your production application using testing environment to ensure that your business can run as usual, even when minor corrections or enhancements/upgrades are being made to your applications.
To ensure that none of your testing needs are left out, our team prepares a regression suite to test the base functionality of the application right at the onset. This regression suite is, in time, upgraded align with the BAU changes. Wherever possible, the suite is automated with suitable regression automation sets from vendors like HP Mercury and IBM Rational.
All organizations know the importance of a proper regression test to be executed after each time the code is changed to ensure we don’t have side effects on the existing functionalities. However, that’s not the real case since Regression Test is burden especially if the application is relatively big.
CHRMOEIS knows exactly the importance and we understand obstacles of running a proper thorough regression test. We use our own techniques of structured and automated regression tests with Metadata in order to identify which test cases to run and when to run them. Our testers have the necessary experience in regression automation tools needed to cover all aspects of the application without consuming very much time or resources.
With our thorough approach your applications are in safe hands.
Being operational in the Middle East and specifically in the GCC region, Localization Test is highly needed. We are the right people to help you with this because our testers are native Arabic speakers.
Localization Testing, is an essential test method whether it is for web, mobile or software localization. Incorrect translation could be misinterpreted or taken offensively. Functional or cosmetic problems may hurt the reputation of your organization.
Our testers verify that localized content is linguistically correct, culturally appropriate, and fits within the context. They examine the functionality of a product to ensure proper operation on localized operating systems and supported platforms.
Our localization testing team performs several validation steps to ensure that a product has been successfully adapted to Middle East/GCC regional expectations. Some of these steps include: reporting truncation issues due to text expansion, validating input fields such as zip codes and telephone numbers, ensuring that sorting logic is applied correctly and that date, time and decimal symbols are displayed properly. It is our responsibility to make sure no defects are found after the release of your product.
This is the most significant test for the client and vendor of the software because it gets the client’s representatives to certify the system with respect to the requirements that was agreed upon. This testing happens in the final phase of testing before moving the software application to market or production environment.
If you don’t have the skills to do this testing, let us represent you. CHROMEIS is a niche testing player with a specialists’ track record of representing and substituting business users for conducting acceptance testing. We work with our customers from the requirement definition stage to effectively participate and to manage the user acceptance testing process.
User Acceptance Testing validates end-to-end business processes, system transactions and user access, confirms that the system or application is functionally fit for use and behaves as expected.

Click below and let’s discuss how we can reduce your testing costs!
Information assets are the key behind any business’ success. Security breaches can lead to a business debacle resulting in lost customers, damaged repute and high costs of legal and recovery processes. Large development teams and lack of documentation is a deadly combination, and almost always leads to security flaws in applications. And since most financial applications are developed on their proprietary framework, the problem is exaggerated even more.
Security is set of measures to protect an application against unforeseen actions that cause it to stop functioning or being exploited. Unforeseen actions can be either intentional or unintentional.
CHROMEIS security testing team identifies the threats in the system and measures its potential vulnerabilities. The team also helps in detecting all possible security risks to ensure that the application in an organization is free from any loopholes that may cause a big loss.
Why Security Testing is Critical?
Gartner reports that 75% of breaches are caused by security flaws in application software. According to NIST, 92% of vulnerabilities are in applications software. Recent attacks on tech heavyweights indicate that the traditional security approach is simply not working. Every thriving business is concerned and wants to improve their security infrastructure. But it’s easier said than done.
How We Can Help?
We offer an in-depth automated and manual security assessment & code review service to highlight security vulnerabilities in software applications. Our security experts are experienced, certified, and use latest proprietary tools from HP, IBM, McAfee and Symantec to run our security testing process. Our focus is to:

Security breaches and leaks have severe cost and repute implication on many companies in the past.
Undermine Customer Intimacy: Security breach directly hits the company-customer relationship, making the customer more careful and concerned about their personal information security. This directly results in financial implications.
Damages Company Reputation: Security breach has a high intangible cost. It damages the company reliability and trustworthiness in the market place.
High Legal Cost: Due to security breaches and data losses, organizations often face legal consequences with financial implications due to violation of data protection acts and other privacy laws.
ChromeIS covers a broad spectrum of penetration services to enable their clients with clear visibility of the vulnerable and unsecure environments they operate their businesses.
PHYSICAL SECURITY ASSESSMENTS
Physical security is conducted to protect workers, equipment and property against foreseen intimidations and threats. ChromeIS adopts both active and passive measures to judge physical infrastructures. Passive measures are related to architecture, landscape and lighting, whereas active measures involve the use of technologies designed to spot, respond, prevent and report against threats.
WEB APPLICATION ASSESSMENT
Web applications are more prone to viruses and cyber-attacks because of many reasons such as shared servers, cross-site scripting attacks, SQL injection etc. In the recent past, many major websites got hacked because of lack of security and improper security audits and assessments resulting in lost visitors, investment and eventually online business. ChromeIS involves a hybrid approach to penetrate the application exploiting vulnerabilities at application level as well as hardware and network level.
MOBILE SECURITY ASSESSMENT
One of the emerging methods used by the hackers is attacking mobile devices. BYOD have brought into many challenges for the Information security people. Mobile applications are developed for banking and corporate users and are in use, an improperly secured device in terms of applications and devices can lead to a major breach.
ChromeIS being partner with security Giants such HP, Symantec, McAFee to name few provides full auditing of the applications devices and furthermore installation of mobile suites application as per customer environment need. We are vendor neutral and suggest the best possible solution for client as per there environment.
WIRELESS PENETRATION TESTING
ChromeIS offers wide range of Wireless penetration testing services; our solutions vary from standard corporate networks to customized networks. ChromeIS approach is to use a mix of black box and white box testing. We use our high power equipment to locate wireless access points and rouge access points, which are installed in company infrastructure. Our security experts focus on all the advanced techniques to identify the threats in client network in form of client crypto and enterprise network.
SOCIAL ENGINEERING (HACKING HUMANS)
Employees can leak your company’s private sensitive information and your competitors can directly take advantage out of that ChromeIS implies a number of strategies to counter social engineering and test employee’s weaknesses. We simultaneously educate the employees how to handle sensitive data and to answer their queries and concerns related to security.
VOIP PENETRATION TESTING
With the use of IP based telephony systems in today’s business environment, security lapses have become very common which includes phone call tapping, call data manipulation, call tracking etc. Pen Testing of the VOIP systems enables you to get an insight of your current VOIP security and let you assess the no of attacks your system is exposed to.
Usability Testing generally includes testing user interface (UI) and user experience (UX). One is about testing your Graphical User Interface and how it looks & behaves, while the other focuses on user experience and user behavior.
Why Do Usability Testing?
Every app developer should consider usability testing in order to see user reactions and possible areas of improvement before the application is rolled out to users. As they say, First impression is the last; a ruined user experience creates a bad repute and simply kills the VIRALITY factor. Your chances of achieving success nose dive even before you start executing your marketing strategy.
How We Can Help?
At ChromeIS, the process starts with a test plan, A/B testing considerations, participant / tester recruitment as per their profiles, test execution, reporting and assessments.
We conduct Usability Testing to identify user response in the following four areas:
Our usability tests help determine:
Successful completion of tasks
Time duration of the tasks completed
Satisfaction level against the application usage
Performance and quality of the results achieved
Anomalies, suggestions and improvements noted
Partner with ChromeIS for your Usability Testing needs. Save on after sales support, create a stronger brand image, and improve user acceptance.
Code reviews help determine the coding standards and let you improve the quality of the application at code level. Any organization that aims to make its code maintainable and easy to scale up or down should conduct code reviews.
Why Conduct a Code Review?
A code review can reveal issues such as common bugs, thread synchronization, dealing with error conditions, correct accounting for reference-counting and other potential resource leaks, security problems, and ensuring that unit tests cover all code paths, error cases, and limit cases.
How We Can Help?
At ChromeIS we have developed a comprehensive methodology to conduct code reviews. We use peer review methodology to conduct code reviews manually. ChromeIS is an authorised partner having certified resources to deliver security code auditing services using HP Fortify static and dynamic code analyser. Our team is also adept at using automated code review tools such as Jstyle, Code Striker, SSW Code Auditor etc.
We perform code reviews to save time by catching defects before they affect other parts of the program code.

Few examples of huge problems generated by software bugs:
Y2K bug hit jeopardized railways
In January of 2001 newspapers reported that a major European railroad was hit by the aftereffects of the Y2K bug. The company found that many of their newer trains would not run due to their inability to recognize the date ’31/12/2000′; the trains were started by altering the control system’s date settings.
An assumption cost NASA $125 Million
In October of 1999 the $125 million NASA Mars Climate Orbiter spacecraft was believed to be lost in space due to a simple data conversion error. It was determined that spacecraft software used certain data in English units that should have been in metric units.
70,000 business customers affected in a week
Bugs in software supporting a large commercial high-speed data network affected 70,000 business customers over a period of 8 days in August of 1999. Among those affected was the electronic trading system of the largest U.S. futures exchange, which was shut down for most of a week as a result of the outages.
Software bug caused the failure of a $1.2 billion military satellite launch
In April of 1999 a software bug caused the failure of a $1.2 billion military satellite launch, the costliest unmanned accident in the history of Cape Canaveral launches. The failure was the latest in a string of launch failures, triggering a complete military and industry review of U.S. space launch programs, including software integration and testing processes.
A town received 700 times larger electricity bill
A small town in Illinois received an unusually large monthly electric bill of $7 million in March of 1999. This was about 700 times larger than it’s normal bill. It turned out to be due to bugs in new software that had been purchased by the local power company to deal with Y2K software issues.
In early 1999 a major computer game company recalled all copies of a popular new product due to software problems. The company made a public apology for releasing a product before it was ready.
Do you have unexpectedly high demand from consumers?
In August of 1997 one of the leading consumer credit reporting companies reportedly shut down their new public web site after less than two days of operation due to software problems. The new site allowed web site visitors instant access, for a small fee, to their personal credit reports. However, a number of initial users ended up viewing each others’ reports instead of their own, resulting in irate customers and nationwide publicity. The problem was attributed to “…unexpectedly high demand from consumers and faulty software that routed the files to the wrong computers.”
823 fortunate customers were credited with $924,844,208.32 each
Software bugs caused the bank accounts of 823 customers of a major U.S. bank to be credited with $924,844,208.32 each in May of 1996, according to newspaper reports. The American Bankers Association claimed it was the largest such error in banking history.
