    For almost 100 years, Intersport's mission has been to make sport more accessible by offering a wide range of sporting goods as well as services such as rental and maintenance. 

    To meet the demands of today's consumers, Intersport provides several digital resources on and such as :

    • An e-commerce store
    • Online catalogs
    • Online equipment rental
    • A virtual queue
    • E-gift cards
    • A size guide

    However, all these tools are of course accompanied by new releases and the risk of bugs.

    For a company with so much traffic and a strong brand image to protect, every anomaly can have major consequences.

    As a result, testing has always been a priority for Intersport's development teams, but in the early days, functional testing was manual.

    To save time and reduce the risk of human error, Intersport decided to opt for an automated testing solution to ensure that its releases met a set of quality criteria.


    Why did Intersport choose Mr Suricate ?

    According to Grégory Lafont, Web Operations Manager at Intersport, Mr Suricate was an obvious choice for Intersport for 3 main reasons:

    • In the intuitive tool.
    • Through experienced Mr Suricate always available and dynamic.

    2. Optimized scenario maintenance

    One of the main problems encountered in automated testing is scenario maintenance. 

    This time-consuming part of automated testing can have a negative impact on test quality and usability, and a solution for this was a very important criterion for Intersport.

    Success managers at Mr Suricate success managers are experts in testing and their solution, and are able to support and challenge them in scenario maintenance, always aiming to maximize tests, by adding performance and end-to-end path concepts, for example.

    Mr Suricate challenge Intersport teams on the relevance of existing scenarios; they are advised either to delete a scenario if it is not relevant, or to recreate another one, or to complete and improve it to make it more relevant.

    3. Expert, human support

    Intersport's Web teams chose to work with a partner rather than a service provider, in order to be able to monitor the progress of their projects more closely.

    No matter who accompanies them from home Mr Suricatethe level and quality of exchange are the same every time.
