Success story
TENADO

Standard-compliant, efficient work - with unprecedented speed

TENADO develops highly professional and effortless CAD software solutions.

It is a medium-sized company strongly rooted in the Ruhr area in Germany with more than 80 employees and over 30 years of company history.Its mission is to make its customers – many medium-sized companies from the craft, traffic planning and security industries – work easier, faster, more intuitive and efficient with TENADO software.

The Challenges

Test automation for the 2D and 3D product lines

In the development of its 2D and 3D product lines for CAD processing, TENADO follows a very user-centric approach. Therefore, the entire development process was set up following agile methodologies. In order to push the boundaries further and to relieve the developers of manual testing tasks and constantly improve the quality of the software provided, the complete testing is to be automated as far as possible.

TYPO3 – Website redesign and online store integration

A key to success in the area of digitalized is any company’s web presence – combined with a performant online shop system. Therefore, TENADO decided to redesign its complete web presence and to modernize the website design. In addition, a modern online shop solution is to be selected and integrated to offer customers and prospects the smoothest possible online purchasing process.

What we did

Test automation

The freelance test specialist of ElevateX was involved in the project from the very first days. Therefore, he could provide important input for the start of the “greenfield  project”.

The inital task for ElevateX and the assigned freelancer consists  of an analysis of the current development process for the 2D and 3D product line. Based on this, a selection of test automation tools and frameworks, mainly from Ranorex, will be made and the environment for test automation will be set up and developed.

The third milestone concerns the actual implementation of the automation.

In the course of the collaboration, our freelance expert not only brings his deep know-how into the project, but enables TENADO to keep  and acquire this know-how within the company.

The goal of the collaboration is to not only plan and set up the test automation but rather enable TENADO to maintain and extend the system themselves in the future.

Website Redesign

Within a few days, ElevateX provided the internal marketing team of TENADO with a very experienced TYPO3 developer for their  website redesign project. This freelancer not only has the necessary experience in website development and design – he also manages to quickly develop an excellent way of working with all internal stakeholders on a personal level.

On this basis, the team makes very fast progress in revising the website. Not only is it updated to the latest TYPO3 version, but it is also equipped with modern and interactive design elements based on TENADO’s software solutions.

The in-depth expertise of the ElevateX specialist enabled TENADO to pick the right online shop system and embed it into their TYPO3 website.

Our collaboration with ElevateX and their freelance specialists works without a hitch. For our challenges in test automation, we were able to quickly and purposefully develop solutions with the freelance expert and started their implementation right away. Especially the straight forward and efficient processes save us a lot of time.

André Kohut
CEO, TENADO GmbH

ElevateX's service convinced me through and through - just a few days after our inquiry we had the first interview with an expert for TYPO3 website development. He was a very good technical fit and we were able to start the project together without any delay. If you are looking for a fast and reliable partner for demanding IT projects, ElevateX is your go-to partner!

Why it matters

Test automation

The planning and implementation of a test automation system at TENADO by one of our freelancers reduces the effort for manual testing by the in-house software developers. This makes their day-to-day work much easier and frees them up for more creative development work.

More importantly, the project enables TENADO to provide its users with the best possible software in consistently high quality in an automated way!

Website Redesign

The website redesign raises the online presence of TENADO to a new level. The look-and-feel is modernized and the user experience is increased – all in all a big improvement in the external presentation of TENADO. In addition, the integration of the online shop opens up another sales channel to generate new revenue.
