In the transformation of the traditional catering industry, in addition to developing its own apps, there is also a shortcut in China, which is to develop its own mini-programs based on mobile platforms with a large number of users, such as WeChat and Alipay. WeChat mini-programs are “sub-applications” within the WeChat ecosystem. They enable to provide advanced features to users such as e-commerce, task management, coupons, etc. Moreover, the threshold for mini-program development is relatively low, and the difficulty is not as high as that of APP. However, given that both WeChat and Alipay have extremely large users, the audience of mini-programs is certainly not a minority. Therefore, the quality of mini-programs must be effectively guaranteed. Only by providing customers with a high-quality experience can more users be retained.
McDonald’s, an American restaurant giant, was established in 1940 and has more than 37,000 restaurants distributed in more than 120 countries and regions around the world. It mainly sells fast food such as burgers, french fries, fried chicken, and frozen treats. Entered China in 1990, now it has more than 3,300 stores.
Facing the transformation challenge coming along with the development of the internet, McDonald’s started up a global Internet ecological layout, and the development of mini-programs based on the WeChat has also become an important link. The McDonald’s WeChat mini program is an application that can be used without downloading and installing. Users can open it by scanning or searching on WeChat.
McDonald’s has its own IT department, and it is easy to develop a WeChat mini program, however, a lack of professional testers and no applicable test tools can not effectively guarantee the quality of mini-programs. If building a team and purchasing tools, not only will it bring a lot of capital and manpower investment, but it will also be difficult to complete the test tasks with high quality and efficiency.
After rigorous technical evaluation and consideration, Macdonald’s China finally chose 51Testing as its partner to build an Internet ecosystem in China.
In response to the requirements of McDonald’s, the 51Testing e-commerce business department quickly prepared the test plan and provided timely services, implementing professional function and performance testing services for MacDonald’s WeChat mini-program:
- Completed functional tests of WeChat Mini Program Points Mall, gift cards, cash cards, and gift packages.
- Develop and debug automated scripts to verify their performance and stability by simulating real scenarios.
- Verify the key business functions and performance indicators of the Mini Program under the existing specific configuration to provide a basis for the project to go online.
For catering companies, there will be business turnover every day. If a business failure occurs due to a small program problem, the loss will be self-evident. 51Testing, with “professional testing, excellent quality” as the cornerstone of the brand, adhering to the value of “flexibility, efficiency, and low cost”, is committed to providing world-leading one-stop software testing services for catering companies.
