Test case management software makes it easier to write & track test cases

Reusing test steps is easy with test case software

Better Test Coverage & Improved Efficiency

Be more efficient about your test management — while also improving test coverage.

Full Coverage Testing

Since Helix TCM converts defects into test cases, you’ll get seamless testing coverage.

When test runs fail, Helix TCM creates defects, which are an excellent source of new test cases. Helix TCM creates these. That means you’ll automatically get better coverage in your test management.

Reduced Manual Work

With a test case management tool — like Helix TCM — reusing test steps is easy. And it makes you more efficient. Reusing test steps:

  • Reduces manual work for testing.
  • Creates consistency across tests and projects.

You'll be able write one test — and use it for multiple systems and browsers. And grouping related tests in suites streamlines planning for everyone.

Get traceability in software testing.

A Test Management Tool With Full Traceability

Get Full Visibility Up and Downstream

Understand the relationship between requirements, test cases, and issues. Trace the issue when tests fail. When requirements change, you’ll know to adjust your test cases. And you’ll know to make new tests when issues arise.

Helix TCM creates traceability, so you can connect the dots. It even creates an instant traceability matrix.

So, you'll be able to:

  • Understand how changes impact your requirements and test cases.
  • Trace changes made in source code to a requirement in order to resolve a defect.
  • Maintain and regulate requirements by forcing sign-offs on each test step.
ALM combines requirements management, testing management, and defect tracking

A Test Case Management Tool for Jira

Keep Using Jira But Get the Testing Management You Seek

Using Jira to track issues and manage tasks? It’s meant for bug tracking, but not for test management. That’s where Helix TCM comes in.

Helix TCM fully integrates and syncs seamlessly with Jira. You can easily create tests in it based on Jira issues.

This allows you to get the full testing management you seek while still using Jira. No matter which tool you’re in, it’s easy to track issues, test cases, and test runs. You’ll always know what issues have been resolved, which test cases are approved, and which test runs have passed and failed.

From Testing to the Entire Lifecycle

Testing is just one part of the application development lifecycle. There’s issues to resolve. And requirements to manage.

That's why Helix TCM is part of the Helix ALM suite. See how test management fits with issue management in Helix IM. And requirements management in Helix RM.

When these tools are used together, you’ll gain greater efficiency and seamless coverage across the entire lifecycle.
