TestGear is a single platform for manual and automated software testing. TestGear founders were testers looking for a test management system to work with. Nothing in the market was suited to their needs, so what did they do? They created their own!
What Is TestGear?

Who Is TestGear For?
TestGear is a software development company focused on creating tools for quality assurance teams. The tool can be used by engineers, DevOps specialists and SDETs. From manual testers to automators, leads and test managers, product managers or product owners, as well as CEOs. It doesn’t matter the industry that you are in as long as you are testing your product.
Of course, each and every one of your project roles can be customized according to your project needs but here’s a look on how it could look for each one.
A. Tester ’s View
Each tester can go in their user profile and see what is in their to-do list, what they have pending, completed and more. You can also gamify the user profile for either friendly competition or management incentive.
B. Test Manager’s View
The Test Manager can go on the project’s dashboard and see what everyone in the team is doing, how they are doing it and what the status is and the points they are making. You can customize the types of widgets, filtering dates, layout, and permissions on your dashboard.
C. Product Manager’s View
The product manager can see everything in each project, including statuses, priorities, flakiness of trends in test results, and quality trends by specialists.
What Challenges Does Testgear Help Solve?

Challenge #2: Slower release time to market
TestGear helps shorten the development and testing cycle—test cases in TestGear can be created in just two clicks and the shared steps function provides the ability to combine your repetitive actions into a single drag and drop from your mouse.

TestGear Features Overview
To get an idea of how TestGear works, here’s a tour of the main features:
The TestGear test library allows you to create test cases or checklists in just two clicks. You can structure and store all your test scripts by project, create checklists, and customize everything according to your needs.
TestGear combines manual and automated tests in one convenient library, so you have everything in one place. It doesn’t matter what programming language your automated tests are written in, you can monitor their execution in real time and get error stack traces and screenshots right in the TMS.
Shared steps is a TestGear feature that combines repetitive actions into shared steps. You can select them right off your test case once, create your steps, and never have to worry about writing a script ever again.
Versioning will help you control and better manage your test documentation while also not missing important details such as who makes changes and when, and reverting to previous versions when needed.
Dashboards let you create and customize detailed reports on anything you can imagine. You can analyze changes in product quality, releases, tests, tests results or automated tests. The dashboard customization and analytics can provide your team with reports in a convenient format.
