DaimlerChrysler Services expects to save "tens of thousands of pounds" after deploying a new tool to test its core financial application, Phoenix.

The savings will come from reduced training times and a simpler scripting process, the company said.

Phoenix is a suite of configurable software designed to help manage leasing and finance contracts for the motor industry.

Julian Markham, technical architect at DaimlerChrysler Services, said the Citratest tool from Tevron was about 90% cheaper than traditional testing tools, taking into account the cost of consulting and the price of the software.

Simpler scripting was the key to the savings. "I have taught someone to use CitraTest in just a few days," he said. Previously, external consultants were needed to develop scripts to test Phoenix.
