Co-ordination of Global UAT for Cloud based HR System

ROQ has a long-standing relationship with this client and have worked on many projects over a 10-year partnership (often in parallel). This particular case study was a complex implementation of a new, cloud-based global HR System - a complex and wide-reaching project, involving numerous legacy systems, 57 different vendors, 114 interfaces, across 47 countries and ROQ was responsible for the coordination of UAT globally.  

ROQ defined the overall programme-level test strategy and approach for the implementation of a new cloud-based HR, payroll and training system covering 145,000 employees. This engagement was predominantly co-ordinated from the lab to reduce travel costs; however, senior members of the team were required to travel for key meetings. An alternative communications strategy was put in place to maintain the cadence of delivery, such as skype, conference calls, etc. given the key stakeholders were situated all around the world.  

The Scope of this Project included: 

  • Definition of overall programme level Test Strategy and approach for HR, Payroll and Training system 
  • Test preparation/process improvement prior to system test – reviewing test scripts, and editing where required 
  • Execution of over 600 scripts during system test 
  • Responsible for providing management and support for system, system integration, end to end and report testing phases 
  • Defect management – ensuring defects are assigned and progressing through the workflow 

 This example highlights ROQs ability to foster excellent relationships with a client’s team, building trust, adding value and improving the delivery of user acceptance testing. ROQ approaches every engagement with an ‘Understand>Define>Deliver’ methodology ensuring our approach to testing and quality assurance is tightly linked to a client’s business objectives – in keeping with ‘shift-left’ practices and allowing for the best possible project outcomes. 

ROQ Value Add: 

  • Implemented an impact assessment review of the interface designs with the Workday programme, to ensure that any risks are called out and mitigated accordingly 
  • Creation and provision of training videos to guide and prepare the Unilever testers in advance of, and during their test activity 
  • Using our expertise of the testing approach to guide Unilever teams during day to day testing activities  
  • Chairing defect and progress meetings, taking ownership of these elements of the programme 
  • Providing ‘pain relief’ –  assisting with, and removing impediments that the Unilever testers may encounter
