HDI Versicherung AG provides insurance services in Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Slovakia. The сompany offers underwriting property and casualty insurance in the areas of auto and accident, legal protection, life, and homeownership.
HDI Austria is shaping the domestic market as an innovative and fast-moving insurance provider thanks in part to its modern IT systems. Since November 2019, the company has been deploying RPA software robots provided by an UiPath partner. HDI Austria is delighted with the RPA results achieved using UiPath because by automating its processes, the company has saved around 600 person-days over the last year and a half while reaching an automation rate of 92%.
Being satisfied with the UiPath RPA solution, the company decided in early 2021 that it would also begin to use UiPath tools for test automation in software development.
Using UiPath, the insurer currently carries out around 900 daily automated regression tests overnight, even though test automation is still under construction. Looking ahead, the company hopes to integrate test automation directly into the development process to enable testers to use UiPath to develop test cases right away using the definition of done, i.e., once the code required for an application is written. No further work would then be necessary for test automation.
