OVERVIEW

Right from choosing the best piggy bank to save money as a child to opting for a bank that can defend all our assets, we might have always rooted for a banking system that is prudent, transparent, and reliable. In the era of digitization like now, people like to accomplish almost everything with a few clicks on their mobile phones. So, there is a high demand for a banking application that can ensure a digitally safe and customized banking experience. In this article, let us learn about the test cases that are used to test a banking application. Before that, let us understand the workings of the banking domain in brief.

Quality of good banking application

Any banking application is expected to follow a set of etiquette that can greatly influence the client's decision to continue with net banking or not. For a client, when their net banking experience is digitally chaotic, there is a high chance for that client to terminate their relationship with the bank, which is an undesired gesture.

Here are some of the must have core qualities to be made certain while designing an app to graph up the customer experience. They are:

Simplicity:

People who know little about banking terms will use the app. To ensure a pleasant experience for customers, the vocabulary must not be very technical. The application can be multilingual, as it will help users in different parts of the world. The handling of the app must be child’s play.

Transparency and reliability:

The more transparent an app is, the more reliable it is. When users are given an idea of why particular details are being asked for, they may become more understanding when the reason is fair and submit the data.

Security:

Security must be at the core of any application. Software that is specially tailored for banking purposes must come with a high level of security to safeguard the customer's data from any hacking, data breaches, or other unethical activities.

What are the test case templates?

Anything that is made to bring about change must be evaluated. If not, the change it may cause can be harmful. We go for ‘bank application testing’ to provide the digitally best banking experience to the clients and satisfy them to the maximum. After all, customer satisfaction is the only parameter that is going to elevate any business.

A test case template is a collection of test cases that the QA team must test. These test cases may vary depending on the organization. The test case template is designed to be simply understood by all team members.
