Autify claims to address the lack of software testing engineers, exacerbated by today’s faster release cycle, by allowing anyone to automate testing – no coding required. In addition, by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to maintain test scenarios, Autify want to solve the modern maintenance challenges of software testing asserts.

To create a test scenario, Autify’s Chrome browser extension records a user’s interactions with a website or web app. The interactions are then turned into an executable automated test scenario – no coding is required. Autify then enables the user to easily run the scenario against multiple browsers, including smart devices, by simply choosing from a dropdown list. After a test scenario is created, Autify’s AI continuously maintains it by recognizing any changes to a UI and adapting testing scenarios accordingly. Autify’s AI eliminates the time-sink of fixing broken scripts – allowing teams to focus on innovation and quality.
