Mobile Labs Leads in Innovation for Mobile App Testing

Mobile testing solution provider recognized for advancing mobile device clouds for financial, telecom, travel and entertainment companies

ATLANTA – April 2, 2019 – Mobile Labs, a leading provider of mobile device clouds to Global 2000 mobile developers and testers, has recently been praised for its innovation in the enterprise mobility space.

The company has already been named a 2019 Top 40 Innovative Technology Company in Georgia and received a number of prestigious awards over the past ten months including Top 10 Most Promising Agile Consulting/Services Companies, Top 20 Leading Testing Providers and Best in Show in Software Development for Testing Tools.

These honors highlight the company’s automated testing, manual testing and debugging capabilities through its patented mobile device cloud, GigaFox. GigaFox is a complete re-engineering of the device cloud that gives mobile QA engineers exciting real-time performance, on real devices, with unprecedented smoothness and responsiveness whether coding, writing Appium test scripts or doing manual testing. Using a GigaFox mobile device is like having one in hand, making it the first and only mobile device cloud suitable for all categories of mobile apps, including active content Web, gaming, and streaming video.

When other vendors were solving device sharing and access issues by adding additional hardware, such as multiple servers, Mobile Labs solved these problems with simple, efficient software solutions, in turn, reducing the potential footprint.

In addition to its solutions, Mobile Labs’ innovation extends throughout every branch of the company. Operating like a tech startup, the Buckhead headquarters is an open, comfortable space for creative ideas and collaboration.

An example of one of these creative ideas is the adoption of Jira by the marketing team. Normally used by development teams to track bugs, Jira is now being used by the marketing team to track the status of projects, drafts, deadlines and for future planning. Using technology in innovative ways is not a new concept for Mobile Labs; the team often adapts technology for its own, unique purposes.

Another example of internal innovation is how Mobile Labs works with its customers. For instance, the support team views submitted tickets as a chance to speak to the customer, instead of just solving technical issues. This old-school approach to customer service is a relatively new way of thinking, especially in the software testing and development industry.

“Mobile Labs values innovation as a top priority,” said Mobile Labs’ President & CEO Dan McFall. “Whether it’s our developers coming up with new ways to solve testing problems or our marketing team reimagining our product strategy, innovation drives our company culture. We are honored to be recognized for the hard work the team has done over the past year, and we are looking forward to more exciting innovations coming in 2019.”

Crowdsprint launches online crowd-based testing services for under $1,000

Test apps and websites quicker, faster and cheaper at crowdsprint.com

MELBOURNE, 8 March 2017 – Crowdsprint Pty Ltd, a crowdsourced testing company, today announced that innovators around the world who want to deliver the best apps and websites, can now purchase testing packages online, starting from under USD$1,000. The new crowd testing platform brings the power of the crowd to software testing, making it accessible and affordable for any size business, located anywhere in the world.

Crowdsprint CEO, Jamie Duffield said: “People building apps and websites globally want to quickly and cheaply test them. We’ve made it easy to perform functionality, usability and security testing to find bugs and defects via the crowd. Whether you’re building your own apps, need a QA check on your client’s apps/websites, have run out of time and resources internally to test before launch, or you simply want to test to identify problems so they can be improved, anyone can now buy a suitable testing package online, and let crowdsprint do the rest.”

“Faulty apps and websites can be the difference between success and failure for businesses, but often, people believe that “testing” can be successfully carried out by staff, friends and family. While this is great place to start, our experience shows that an entry level “starter” package, which entails up to seven testers, seven devices with up to three days of testing, could expect to yield up to 40 valid defects. Launching an application with 40 defects could spell disaster for any business.

“By testing on real devices and operating systems with real users, businesses can vastly improve defect-detection rates, reduce testing costs by 50-70 percent, go-to-market quicker and flawlessly launch new digital products,” said Duffield.

Perfecto Expands Focus from Mobile to Digital with the Next Generation of its Continuous Quality Lab

April 5th, 2016 (London, UK) – Perfecto Mobile, the market leader in empowering enterprises to deliver high-quality digital experiences, today announced the next version of its cloud-based Continuous Quality Lab™ (CQL) that expands test coverage from mobile web and apps to include web browsers on desktops. The enhancement provides enterprises with the most complete quality lab, allowing Dev teams to execute and analyse manual, automated and performance tests for digital channels side-by-side, on desktop browsers and real mobile devices under real end-user conditions. With this expansion, users can apply a single quality strategy to deliver seamless responsive web and omni-channel experiences.

Today’s end-users rely on digital transactions and in turn, expect flawless experiences across web and mobile. With the five most popular devices and operating systems accounting for more than 500 possible browser and device combinations alone, brands are challenged with providing a seamless omni-channel experience that works for users at any time and across any digital channel, regardless of variables such as network conditions or device interruptions. The wide range of today’s mobile devices, desktop browsers and end-user environments at any given time are critical considerations when creating a quality omni-channel strategy. Brands must partner with vendors that allow them to test and optimise their customer experience across all these conditions and environments.

“In our increasingly connected culture, users are choosing to engage via digital channels. Every touch point, from browsing a site on a tablet to making a purchase via a mobile app, serves as an opportunity to build upon customer brand loyalty or, alternatively, to tarnish a company’s reputation with the delivery of a flawed experience,” said Eran Yaniv, CEO, Perfecto. “With the latest version of the CQL that offers full testing for omni-channel and responsive web experiences, brands can continuously monitor, test and improve web and mobile properties to guarantee a consistent, seamless and high-quality digital experience.”

“The digital transformation has fundamentally changed the way consumers engage with brands. Tomorrow’s successful businesses will be determined by their ability to meet demands on the digital channels their customers want, with the functionality they want, and availability whenever and wherever it’s needed,” said Melinda Ballou, program director for IDC’s Application Lifecycle Management & Executive Strategies Service. “A quality digital experience will be dictated by enabling software visibility, management and analysis across platforms to help launch and optimise the modern consumer’s journey.”

Perfecto’s Continuous Quality Lab empowers development teams by supporting manual and automated testing across varied user conditions from a single cloud-based quality lab. Key features and benefits include:

  • One test strategy for faster delivery to market: To accelerate the development process, a single test script can run on responsive websites, desktop browsers and real mobile device browsers. The CQL’s platform-agnostic scripting of web apps across desktop browser/OS combinations and real devices/OS combinations shortens test cycles by running mobile and web assessments concurrently.
  • Side-by-side testing for earlier issue detection and resolution: The CQL provides side-by-side analytics of digital test results to enable teams to quickly focus and triage platform specific challenges supported by visual logs with screenshots, video and device diagnostics.
  • Testing for real end-user conditions: The integrated Wind Tunnel™ solution optimises testing for end-user conditions by defining and personifying end-user profiles, and by enabling testing across common scenarios such as degraded network conditions, conflicting applications and device interruptions.
  • One lab for 24/7 testing: The CQL’s cloud-based testing infrastructure provides 24/7 access to secure browser/OS combinations and real devices, including access to the most recent browser updates, new devices and both the latest and legacy OSes.
