Autotrader.ca has an umbrella of products including a CRM for car dealerships and service departments that handles the entire car buying lifecycle from research through test drives, final purchase, and ongoing service.
QA Wolf built, runs, and maintains a test suite that AutoTrader would need six full-time QA engineers and QA managers to support internally, freeing up resources that can be used for product engineering and deliver even more value to customers.
Automated testing reduced AutoTrader QA cycles from a few weeks to a few minutes, helping their developers ship 15–20% faster. We keep pace with their development team, adding coverage as they try out new features behind feature flags, and giving them the confidence to ship without introducing regressions.
Having customer support do manual testing was taking those resources away from the job they were hired to do, and created shortages that impacted the customer experience. With QA Wolf providing E2E testing, we’ve returned more than 1,000 hours per year to that team — the equivalent of $20,000 in misallocated salary.
