If there is one thing you can do to increase your testing efficiency it is setting quality goals with the right set of software quality metrics to track them. Collecting and documenting test cases is a good start, but if you do not set goals it is just too easy to lose focus during the day-to-day activities. Software quality metrics help to stay on track during a testing project and measure progress.
By looking at a chart of passed and failed tests over time you can quickly judge if your quality level is increasing towards the release date or if you need to take action. To help with your planning, TestRail shows projected completion dates based on the time it took to run tests in the past.
TestRail also comes with a number of insightful built-in reports that can all operate on different levels of detail: from project status reports, to milestones, all the way to individual test runs, you always have the information you need. Take a look at the reports yourself and try TestRail for free.
