SUBWAY Wins Cigniti’s “Most Innovative” Award for Quality Assurance Practices

SUBWAY® restaurants was recently presented with the “Most Innovative” award for its Quality Engineering & Assurance practices at LiQE 2016, one of the most prestigious and global Quality Engineering (QE) event held at Texas. Leadership in Quality Engineering (LiQE) has become one of the leading Quality Assurance (QA) platforms, giving QE & QA professionals a forum to learn and share their views on software testing trends.

“We are delighted to have won this award,” said Carman Wenkoff, CIO and Chief Digital Officer of SUBWAY®. “Today, Quality Assurance is so much about the value that end users derive from a product. Organizations are quickly grasping that the job is far from done upon the initial launch or eventual delivery of the product or service.”

Robert Warakomski, a Senior Quality Engineering Manager at SUBWAY® world headquarters and LiQE panelist, emphasized the urgency of Shift-Left Testing at the panel discussion of LiQE 2016. A former software development engineer, Warakomski had long observed a noticeable gap between software development and QA, and that QA received little to no attention and discussion at software conferences.

“We are proud to be working with Subway,” said Pradeep Govindasamy, CTO & President (Americas) Cigniti. “It gives us immense pleasure to present them with this award. Cigniti is privileged to be working with the successful restaurant-chain,” he continued, “and proud to have contributed to Subway’s IT processes. Cigniti’s test automation services during regression testing helped cover 90% of the functionality.”

Some of the best practices included in the DevOps implementation at SUBWAY® are:

  • Continuous Integration process for all of the automation projects
  • In-sprint automation for better ROI
  • Process Streamlining by maintaining test artifacts, activities, and efforts in TFS
  • Automating status reports to promote transparency among projects
  • An Automation Master Framework
  • Payment manager automation

SUBWAY® Restaurants

Guests in 112 countries have easy access to a fresh line-up of vegetables for their made-to-order sandwiches and salads at more than 44,600 franchised locations. Sandwich Artists® serve 7.5 million sandwiches a day around the world. The company, founded 50 years ago by then 17-year-old Fred DeLuca and family-friend Dr. Peter Buck, is still a family-owned business with thousands of dedicated franchisees/entrepreneurs in neighborhoods around the world, providing easy access to vegetables, detailed nutrition, dietary, and healthy lifestyle information.
