Phones 4u (Now Carphone Warehouse) approached AC with a requirement to carry out performance testing on a new Human Resources (HR) system it is commissioning to cater for the rapid growth in its staff numbers.


Phones 4u is a HP LoadRunner user, and AC was selected for the work as a result of our proven track record as a HP Software Partner. AC were able to develop a suite of automated scripts that simulated normal usage and peak loads on the HR application. As a result, potential performance issues under load were identified and resolved prior to ‘go-live’.


AC’s top-down load testing provided clear results as to how the HR application would perform from an end-user perspective. This testing provided business users with confidence that the application would perform well and substantially reduced the likelihood of performance bottlenecks in production.
