QA & Test Automation

Achieve greater optimization

With the increasing demand for interoperability, regulatory compliance, and end-user technology (mobile, multiple OS) compliance, testing of healthcare applications today involves deep technology expertise, significant time and resources, and costs.

CitiusTech has a 1000+ member QA & test automation team with rich experience in testing healthcare applications - using manual testing and test automation tools (e.g. Selenium – Java, .Net, Python, TOSCA, Ranorex, UFT, etc.). CitiusTech also has strong expertise in multi-platform testing, performance testing, load testing and testing on mobile platforms (iOS, Android, Windows 8 etc.) and cloud platforms (Azure, Amazon EC2, Google) for healthcare applications.
