At Qantom, we have had a long journey testing niche software products. Our clients had entrusted with the complete end-to-end testing of their products and have involved us closely with the entire product management life cycle. Needless to say We ourselves have developed several test automation products.

Leveraging these strengths, Qantom has now started building high quality software products, primarily focused on the Indian SMB segment. Our first offering in this segment is the E-SugamAssist, a utility that allows traders to Create Esugam entries automatically from Tally.

We are working on a road maps for products that will be built to address other e-governance solutions like GST(Goods and services tax), TDS and so on. The next version of these utilities will have a lot of mobile presence to make the life of the small business owner much easier by providing mobile based solutions for these issues.
Details:

Karnataka Commercial Taxes department mandates that if the total value of the invoice for any customer exceeds Rs. 25,000, traders must make an E-Sugam entry directly in the department's server. Traders do this task manually and in turn end up spending a lot of time in this activity. Besides, since this task has to be done manually, this activity raises the possibilities of errors during submission.

Qantom's E-SugamAssist is a tool that will make the lives of traders easy by automatically submitting Sales Invoices to the Esugam Server. The tool takes invoice details from Tally, a popular accounting software and submits these details to the Esugam server. The E-sugam acknowledgment number received from the E-sugam server is updated back into Tally

Our mantra is that the The Browser is the API. Thanks to this technology, our tool will be GST (Goods & services tax) ready sooner than the other tools! When you get the Qantom E-SugamAssist tool, you are rest assured that you have invested in a future ready tool.

1.0 Beta1 was released on the 29th of August 2015.
Based on the user experience of beta reference customers, we made several changes to the software and released 1.0 Beta release2 on 26th of September 2015
Our initial plan was to release the public version of 1.0 around November 2015. However we received quite a few suggestions from our Beta customers, and as a result the number of features added to the product was quite significant. So we skipped 1.0 Final completely and rebranded the release as Version 1.2.
Version 1.2 release was made on 1st February 2016.

ESugam 1.2 can be downloaded from here

You can configure EsugamAssist using the following simple steps

  • Download the installer to your harddisk and run the installer
  • When you download, if your browser tells you that this installer may not be safe because it is not used often, you may safely ignore the warning. The public release of the software is very recent and so the browsers show this warning. We have tested the installer and assure you that there are no viruses or malware
  • Start Tally and configure it to allow voucher imports. If you don't configure this setting, then EsugamAssist will not be able to update Tally with the Esugam number. To configure,
    • Press F12 from Gateway of Tally.
    • Choose General
    • Find the setting that reads "Overwrite vouchers during import" and change this to YES.
  • Start EsugamAssist. For the first time you will be asked some details so that an Evaluation version can be supplied to you. Fill in these details and press OK.
  • When EsugamAssist is started for the first time, a config wizard is shown. Typically you can simply press Next for each screen.
  • EsugamAssist will now start and show details about all Eligible invoices. Select the invoice that you want and press Submit. In the Esugam login page, provide login details and continue.

The spreadsheet based automated test management solution from Qantom is a nifty solution to manage unit tests and automated tests. This is a tool that we use internally and for the exclusive use of our SQA clients. We don't have immediate plans of selling this tool as a commercial offering.
Typically unit and automated tests are maintained as a large chunk of code which is periodically executed by the test developer periodically. The issue with this style of test management is that the test code is only understandable by somebody who is well versed with programming languages. And even for this category of people, it takes some effort to read through the code and understand what is being tested. It is very difficult for test managers or business analysts to make out whether or not the test cases are accurate and /or to review these test cases. Qantom's spreadsheet based automated test management tool addresses this issue. Using this tool, the tests can be maintained in a spreadsheet form with detailed description about what the tests are trying to accomplish. The test management solution works with TestNg tests and uses OpenOffice for spreadsheets. And the best part is that you don't have to change the coding style or the test case format. Regular style of coding using TestNG is adopted. In case you want to use data driven tests, the data rows are taken from spreadsheet rows - thus making it obvious as to which row tests what sort of data.

We use the spreadsheet based automated test management solution solely for the test automaton needs of our clients and we do not sell this product as a standalone product normally. If you have a requirement for this product or need a volume license please contact us @ info@qantom.com

WET is an opensource web automation testing tool. WET drives an IE Browser directly and so the automated testing done using WET is equivalent to how a user would drive the web pages. Using WET, you can perform all the operations required for testing web applications - like automatically clicking a link, entering text in a textfield, clicking a button etc. WET allows you to perform various checks as a part of the testing process by using Checkpoints.

Wet was developed in 2005 and was under active development till 2008. It won wide accollades from tester community including some reputed heavy weights. During its active days, WET had several features which matched and in certain cases surpassed the features of commercial equivalents. Somewhere during the end of 2008, we stopped development of WET in order to focus on our commercial services.

Quicktest pro users faced a challenge when it came to maintaining object repositories. The default object repository created by QTP was extremely fragile across builds. The solution was to use descriptive programming which itself had maintainability issues, if the description of the underlying objects changed. we innovated the concept of an XML repository for descriptive programming, which was a simple yet ground breaking innovation that made the life of QTP automators a lot easier. XML Repository Manager was the Tool that allows Quicktest developers to maintain the repositories for descriptive programming

The XML Repository manager was a tool that was geared to address a specific challenge for QuicktestPro in the year 2003. As our token of gratitude to the Software Testing community, we released this product as a free version (but not opensource) . The application was fully functional in terms of its functionality and we didn't have to release any further versions. Even though it is more than 12 years since we released the first version, we still receive license requests for the product.
