Mobile Labs, LLC, a leading provider of enterprise-grade, next generation mobile application testing solutions, today announced its partnership with Utopia Solutions. A global quality and testing firm that provides innovative quality solutions built from over a decade of helping hundreds of companies achieve breakthrough performance, Utopia Solutions is now a value added reseller (VAR) for Mobile Labs’ suite of mobile application testing solutions.
As a strategic partner, Utopia Solutions will market and resell Mobile Labs’ deviceConnect™, a private, internal device cloud that delivers comprehensive management capabilities for mobile devices, users, and apps in corporate test labs. Utopia Solutions will also resell Mobile Labs’ next-generation automated mobile application testing solution, Trust™. An add-in for the industry’s leading automated testing platform, Trust extends tester skills from web and desktop application testing to mobile application testing leveraging the same scripting language used by the leading automated testing solution. Together, deviceConnect and Trust provide enterprises with secure support for both automated and manual mobile application testing, while concurrently solving device access and management challenges.
Mobile Labs Trust uses deviceConnect to perform cross-platform automated testing on real smartphones and tablets, without the need to jailbreak or root the devices. Trust is a mobile app testing tool that uses object-level detection and interaction rather than surface-based (optical character recognition or image-within-image) techniques. The result is more effective and efficient mobile application testing.
deviceConnect is an on-premises appliance that manages mobile device sharing across an enterprise – behind the firewall – reduces the number of devices required, the likelihood that a needed device will be out of service, and tester downtime caused by waiting for a device to become available. The solution transforms manual testing efficiency and management, enabling testers to easily locate the right device and the right app and make an instantaneous connection to begin testing from any desktop in the enterprise. deviceConnect manages authorized users, available devices, and applications available for test. These capabilities are especially important for enterprises with geographically-dispersed teams that need to access devices from a shared pool of smartphones and tablets.
“It takes a great deal of technology to simplify something as challenging as mobile app testing and device access management,” explained Utopia Solutions Founder and CTO Lee Barnes. “With deviceConnect and Trust, Mobile Labs has managed to do just that. We are excited to partner with Mobile Labs to offer our customers a solution that provides secure management of mobile devices, 24×7 remote access coupled with support for either manual or automated testing.”
“Utopia Solutions’ keen focus on mobile quality, performance testing, test automation and test outsourcing makes them a natural fit as a Mobile Labs partner,” said Mobile Labs CEO, Don Addington. “Together, Mobile Labs and Utopia will enable quality assurance and software testing teams to successfully deliver high quality mobile apps effectively and efficiently.”
