Atlas Systems Completes Automated Testing Platform for eLynx

Atlas Systems' Solution Enables eLynx to Optimize Software Testing, Reduce Operating Costs and Free Up Resources

PRINCETON, NJ--(Marketwire - November 15, 2010) -  Atlas Systems, a technology solutions and software developer with specialization in several vertical sectors, announced that it completed the collaborative development of a customized automated testing solution with its client eLynx, a Cincinnati, Ohio-based software service provider focused on the banking, real estate and mortgage industries.

eLynx, a portfolio company of American Capital (NASDAQ: ACAS), provides the most widely used network for electronic document collaboration and distribution services for the financial services industry. Enterprises use eLynx to capture and maintain data electronically throughout the document life cycle, automating paper-intensive processes, improving workflow, reducing costs and ensuring compliance with industry regulations. The solutions are tailored to a customer's specific needs, making regular software testing a crucial part of the quality assurance process.

eLynx previously used a set of manual test protocols but realized that it needed an automated system that was both faster and repeatable. This would enable eLynx to drive cost savings and efficiencies and free up resources to focus on its core competency: developing and enhancing cutting edge software and services.

eLynx enlisted the enterprise software expertise of Atlas Systems, which pursued a meticulous design phase, working in close collaboration with eLynx to understand user requirements and business objectives. With the knowledge in hand, Atlas Systems then went about building a customized automated testing framework, a case management system and a self-management tool. 

The results were immediate. eLynx was able to cut testing hours on a small project down to 33% of what they were in the past and it implemented a system that could be repeated for any customized version or deployment of eLynx's software.

"Our customers trust us to move their mission-critical data between partners efficiently, securely, and in full compliance with a changing set of requirements," said Sharon Matthews, President and Chief Executive Officer for eLynx. "When something changes for our customers, we make sure their workflow is not adversely affected. With our new automated testing platform, we can perform a full product test in about half the time it took us with manual testing. This creates a uniform approach to functionality testing. There is repeatability and it yields better results in a shorter amount of time."

Wide Range of Benefits

Atlas Systems delivered other key benefits for eLynx:

  • Resilience: The testing platform was built to last with minimal on-going maintenance.
  • Flexibility: The testing platform comes with pre-defined test suites to execute different types of releases.
  • Scalability: The testing platform has load-testing capabilities that are able to accommodate traffic swings brought on by seasonality.
  • Precision: The testing platform has automated defect management and logging capabilities.
  • Expansion: The testing platform comes with plug-n-play capabilities for extending its capabilities.

"Atlas Systems is extremely proud of the work it has done facilitating efficient and effective testing of eLynx's software portfolio," said Venugopala Chalamala, Chief Executive Officer of Atlas Systems. "Our technology helps organizations reduce costs and optimize operations. But the greatest measure of our success is the tactical business value we enable by allowing organizations to focus on what they do best. In the case of eLynx that means building great software and delivering value to customers."

eLynx serves more than 500 financial institutions, including 7 of the top 10 banks and has processed more than 45 million loans. In addition, over 4,000 enterprises worldwide, comprising more than 4 million users in a broad spectrum of industries, use eLynx's document viewing and output software daily.
