With its underlying NLP (Natural Language Programming) engine, Testsigma enables users to rapidly create, manage, and execute end-to-end automated tests for web, mobile, and APIs using plain English. 

The startup previously raised $4.6 million, led by Accel along with STRIVE and BoldCap, in 2022.


Creating complex automated tests using plain English

Testsigma is a GenAI-powered, low-code test automation platform that makes it fast and easy for quality engineering teams to automate tests at speed and scale without coding expertise.

Through its Natural Language Programming approach, Testsigma allows users to create complex automated tests using plain English while maintaining the structured approach of programming languages. QA teams can also use the in-built Generative AI capabilities to generate test scenarios thus ensuring test coverage and significantly reducing test development efforts.

Enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of QA

Testsigma also announced new GenAI capabilities to their low-code platform, enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of QA (Quality Assurance) teams.

These GenAI features allow QA team members to generate test scenarios and test cases from various inputs such as URLs, product designs, screenshots, and Jira stories. 

This advancement not only accelerates the process of writing and executing tests but also ensures comprehensive test coverage. The AI can suggest test scenarios to identify and cover gaps that may arise due to code changes, thus maintaining the robustness and reliability of the software being developed.

Testsigma has also unveiled a new product specifically designed for the Salesforce ecosystem, leveraging their robust low-code platform.

This new offering is tailored to meet the needs of Salesforce developers and administrators, enabling them to accelerate automated Salesforce testing significantly. By using this solution, teams can achieve a tenfold increase in test development speed compared to traditional testing methods.

Testsigma is enterprise-ready and provides flexibility

In addition to its simplicity, Testsigma is also enterprise-ready and provides flexibility. Enterprises use the platform for their end-to-end testing needs, including web apps, mobile apps, desktop apps, APIs, and Salesforce, the company's latest product.

Leading companies such as Cisco, Oscar, Bosch and Samsung use Testsigma to streamline their testing processes and ensure robust software quality.

Testsigma was founded by Rukmangada Kandyala, Pratheep Velicherla, Vikram Chaitanya, and Rajesh Reddy in 2019. The team comes with rich experience in developing enterprise SaaS applications for Zoho, Freshworks, Oracle and HPE.
