TriNet Implements Newmerix’s Automate!Test to Ensure Optimum Quality of Its Extensive PeopleSoft Implementation


TriNet Leverages Automate!Test’s Application Adaptive Testing Capabilities to Ensure Its 1,000 Customers Experience Trouble-Free Outsourced HR Management on the PeopleSoft Platform

Superior, Colo., - April 11, 2006– Newmerix, a provider of application quality and change management software for PeopleSoft applications, today announced that TriNet has successfully implemented Newmerix’s Automate!™Test—an automated testing solution for PeopleSoft. TriNet, a leading provider of human resource services throughout the United States and Canada, delivers premium human resource, benefit and payroll services on the PeopleSoft HRIS platform. TriNet uses Automate!Test to test the HR business processes provided to more than 1,000 customer companies.

Automate!Test is designed to vastly simplify the process of creating and maintaining automated test scripts through a design philosophy of application adaptive testing, or simply put “the tool does the work, not the testing team.”

“We deliver many payroll and human resource services to our customers on the PeopleSoft platform and are committed to providing them with round-the-clock, global web access to their employee data,” said Paul Sheirich, Director of PeopleSoft for TriNet.

“PeopleSoft is mission critical to providing quality service to our customers, so we simply cannot afford issues in our production environment. We chose Automate!Test because it adapts to our many PeopleSoft deployments, and supports us in running a rigorous functional testing cycle each time we make a change to PeopleSoft, without requiring a lot of manual labor from our staff.”

Paul Sheirich will be presenting a case study on his experiences automating testing and quality during the COLLABORATE 06 conference, April 23 - 27, 2006 at Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tennessee. The session is titled, TriNet Case Study: Premier HR Outsourcer Shares PeopleSoft Quality and Testing Best Practices, and will describe how this turn-key HR outsourcer delivers reliable, superior HR services to hundreds of customers on a PeopleSoft platform. Mr. Sheirich will expand on best practices for testing and managing core HR processes, tax updates, and payroll in PeopleSoft.

Some key application adaptive testing features found in Automate!Test that are being utilized by TriNet include “Environmentally Friendly Testing” and “Role Specific Testing,” which allow testing teams to run test scripts in any PeopleSoft environment and in any user mode, effectively eliminating the labor involved in manually modifying test scripts. Newmerix’s application adaptive testing strategy allows PeopleSoft teams to use fewer people and spend less time creating, editing and rebuilding scripts that become obsolete when changes, such as patches and upgrades, are introduced into the PeopleSoft application.

“Every one of our customers has slightly different business requirements,” said Sheirich. “So we were looking for a testing tool that could recognize those differences in PeopleSoft, create test scripts that were robust and re-usable, and easily update the test scripts after upgrades, patches or customer changes. After careful evaluation of leading testing tools, Newmerix clearly had the best solution.”

TriNet is also utilizing Newmerix Professional Services to help them implement a rigorous automated testing program. Newmerix’s Professional Services team is comprised of individuals who are not just experts in testing, but also have specific expertise in testing PeopleSoft applications. Newmerix Professional Services provide implementation programs ranging from small packaged services offerings to large-scale custom engagements to implement a complete automated testing program.
