“Adopting automated testing is a bit like adopting auto-verification – there was skepticism at first, but now that we have it, we can’t envision going back to the old way of doing things.” - Marlene Scott System Operations Analyst, Manager at UR Medicine, Department of Lab Medicine

Join the SCC SoftLab and SoftBank customers that have recognized the benefits of off-loading time-consuming and tedious testing chores. STS’s automated Soft LIS testing solutions perform keystrokes, click the mouse and capture screen prints (or even video!) exactly like a human being would, freeing technologists and analysts from the tedium of repetitive testing. Our comprehensive reports make it easy for you to complete your Soft LIS and blood bank validation.

As part of your maintenance agreement, with every new major release STS will deliver updated test cases, scenarios and profiles. When you implement the new release we also provide the services of our clinical and technical experts to set up and execute the test cases under your team’s guidance.

Unlike costly consulting companies, the automated testing software is available for you to use post-upgrade for other LIS tasks that require repetitive steps. In addition to our online training and support area, our team of clinical and technical experts are just an email or phone call away to assist with your LIS testing projects!
