The client, a renowned American fashion label, had established itself as a leading clothing brand with a global presence. With an expansive reach, delivering products to over 75 countries and selling in more than 700 shops worldwide, the client used Microsoft's D365 platform to power its operations. As the company expanded, the need to optimize processes and harness cutting-edge testing techniques became crucial to minimize bugs and maximize efficiency of the order management system on D365. The client was using manual testing and lacked structured QA functional testing as well as a lack of negative testing resulting in bug leakage.
