Parasoft's AEP Improves Software Quality, Reliability for Transcore

9/10/2003 - Parasoft, leading provider of Automated Error Prevention software solutions announced that TransCore, a leader in ground transportation management systems and the largest global manufacturer of transportation-based radio frequency identification (RFID) products commonly used for electronic toll collection, has adopted Parasoft’s AEP MethodologyTM and uses Parasoft JtestTM to automate unit testing and static analysis for their Java-based software projects.

"Jtest enhances our ability to achieve our software quality and performance goals while meeting established timelines," said Giorgio Frondoni, a Software Manager at TransCore. "With Jtest, we not only get test automation but also the ability to store and track test results, allowing us to measure and monitor our performance and progressively improve our development process."

Many of TransCore’s software projects require custom development work to adapt their products to meet specific contractual needs. Frondoni and his team use Jtest to unit test and enforce coding standards on the back office components of their toll collection transaction software. The systems interact with lane control equipment at toll plazas, generating toll collection transactions for payment by credit card, ACH or cash. That information is then used for traffic and revenue analysis and is shared with customer service and other business units.

"Jtest helps prevent problems from being propagated to the next level, which could be very expensive to fix on every project," said Frondoni. "TransCore is contractually required to go through extensive pre- and post-deployment system testing. Software errors that cause system failure at this stage of testing could have a huge negative impact."
