Nu Skin

Case Study

Nu Skin was founded in Provo, Utah in 1984. As a premier anti-aging skin care company, Nu Skin lives by its philosophy, “all of the good, none of the bad.” The company markets its products in 53 international markets through a network of over 950,000 independent distributors. In 2010, NuS kin was listed among Forbes “100 Most Trustworthy Companies.” As the company moves forward into the future, they are dedicated to producing innovation, integrity, and setting the standard in their industry.

STG has recently helped Nu Skin in two major areas: Mobile development and QA. STG consultants worked closely with the Nu Skin developers to build a point of sale application that interfaces with a hand held device. Most recently, STG has been working on improving Nu Skin’s mobile code base, bringing it current and in line with iOS and Android standards. STG consultants also developed libraries and modules that can be used in future apps to speed up development and standardize certain types of functionality. Our QA specialists built an automation framework from the ground up using Webdriver, Java, TestNG, and Maven to test shopping and monthly auto shopping for all 54 markets. Automation also includes verification of shopping and all the pages for 12 microsites along with the corporate website. STG helped to build an automation reporting web app using Ruby on Rails that facilitates automated testing with logging of all test results. Our team built an automation that tests ten web services; reducing the manual effort of product verification from six people taking roughly half an hour to complete – to three people less than ten minutes. STG’s senior QA helped to teach the Nu Skin QA group Java development as well as Webdriver automation so they could continue to write automation that would be effective and efficient for the company.
