With AtomQA:

With traditional test automation, the application has to be delivered to testing before test development can be started, this means work on the next phase of development is often started before the results of testing are received.

Because AtomQA is fault tolerant, you can produce tests before the application has been developed, then by regularly running the tests you can view the progress as the various components are delivered

AtomQa test results are rendered as standard HTML web pages in a structured manner enabling them to be posted and viewed just about anywhere.

Simple navigation in the test results means that the root causes of faults can be easily discovered.

Tests can be run directly on a shared device (network drive, Dropbox etc.), enabling anyone with access to see results easily in real-time.
