Documenting software testing activities can be difficult in large organizations. Quality assurance engineers must keep track of test cases in order to provide meaningful documentation summarizing the work performed. Each team may have a process tailored for their specific needs, but at the same time having a unified and consistent system for organizing test cases can greatly improve efficiency. Implementing the use of enterprise test management software such as TestRail can bring these efficiency gains. TestRail allows companies enforce existing policies but can also be customized so that it remains flexible. Predefined test case formats can be specified for QA teams and reporting features facilitate showcasing meaningful graphs to summarize data on the efficiency of the quality assurance department.
