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.”
