This is an exciting opportunity to witness first-hand the work we’ve undertaken within Asda on Point Of Sale Automation. We’ll be talking through our journey right from the offset covering our assessment of Testing Tools, through to our POC. We’ll be discussing how we faced into the issues we encountered and our next steps.

The session is interactive and you will also be able to hear from market leading experts from IntelliQA and Eggplant who have helped us on this journey.

Our guest speakers will include:

What to do when you arrive

Aim to be at Asda House 15 minutes before the start so that we can organise your access to the building and “Tomato Room” Auditorium.

You will need a recognised photo id to get in the building. We’ll have a colleague waiting at security to welcome you and show you where to go. Refreshments will be available before the presentation.

We’re looking forward to seeing you all in Asda House soon
