Kineo – PIVOT Learning Management System

Key Achievements

  • Advised on and implemented the QA process for Kineo’s agile development strategy.
  • Providing scalable, flexible and on demand certified test resource.
  • Consistent test team allocated for each 3 week sprint cycle.
  • Successful LMS delivery and ongoing support for multiple leading brands.

The Challenge

Kineo, a City & Guilds Group business, is an award-winning global workplace learning company that helps businesses improve performance through learning and technology.

As they moved towards an agile development structure, Kineo approached Zoonou to implement a testing and QA strategy for one of their core products, PIVOT, a revolutionary apprenticeship management platform.

Our Solution

Implementing an advisory-led approach, sessions were coordinated with Zoonou’s test analysts and the Kineo team to gain a full understanding of the product requirements, agile development process and wider business needs. Zoonou devised and implemented a focussed test strategy and process that complemented the proposed sprint operation.

Zoonou’s approach followed a three-week sprint schedule, with a repeated cycle of Planning, Scripting, Test Execution and Retests. Our test analysts attended the development sprint planning sessions for each new sprint to ensure we had full visibility of the project

Fully managed by an appointed Zoonou Project Lead, the level of testing for each sprint continues to be flexibly scaled based on the outcome of the planning sessions.

The Results

Zoonou has helped Kineo to deliver PIVOT successfully to a wide range of leading brands, a client base that continues to grow. The efficient agile test process implemented by our team has allowed Kineo to focus on innovating and updating the platform and to respond to client demands.

Our test lab has provided the Kineo team with further assurance that their products have been tested on a wide range of browsers and devices. Forming a partnership with the Kineo team, our testers are now positioned as experienced expert users of the system, allowing our approach to adapt and grow along with the success of the product.
