MONTREAL, June 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Askida, a leader in software development and quality assurance, is proud to announce the launch of Askida CT (, a brand new version of its test automation and continuous testing platform. Developed entirely in Canada by Askida’s specialists, Askida CT is a powerful platform that allows users to create automated tests quickly using keyword-driven testing. QA specialists who don’t possess deep technical skills can therefore use the platform to create automated tests much more easily. This new version of the platform is also highly versatile and can handle multi-technology environments and end-to-end testing.

“We’re extremely proud to launch the version of Askida CT, which we’ve been using internally for of our own software development projects for a few years now,” said Steeve Duchesne, Askida’s CEO and cofounder. “In the world of quality assurance and test automation, Askida CT is a unique platform that represents a major shift for software developers. Test automation tools currently on the market require technical skills that only programmers possess, limiting the role of QA specialists. Askida CT takes a different approach, placing QA specialists at the heart of the software development and test automation process.”

“The technology behind Askida CT has clearly proven its worth and our platform is already being used in development by clients like Bell, Telus and Desjardins,” added Michel Lacasse, Askida’s VP of Business Development. “We believe that Askida CT will allow other teams and organizations to reach the same level of software quality that we are able to deliver to our clients thanks to our continuous testing platform.”

Thanks to Askida CT, a solution that can be integrated into an Agile, DevOps or continuous development process, companies can implement test automation, reduce development costs and measure software quality during the entire lifecycle of an application. “Test automation allows us to test all functionalities of our application every time we make a modification or develop a new feature,” added Luc Gastonguay, a Senior Director of Product Delivery for Telus Health. “Early on, we had projected a return on investment over a period of 24 months for Askida CT. After only a year, we had already reached our objective.”
