Tricentis and Applause Partner to Deliver Comprehensive App Testing Under Both In-The-Lab and In-The-Wild Conditions

Industry leaders come together to help companies ensure high-quality user experience on all mobile devices throughout the EU and North America

Vienna, Austria – September 18, 2014 – Tricentis, a global leader in enterprise software testing solutions, and Applause, the 360° app quality™ company, today announced an agreement to provide enterprise customers with complete web and mobile functional testing solutions. Tricentis Tosca Testsuite provides companies with testing efficiency and cost-effectiveness with the highest automation rates of any functional testing product. Applause offers the world’s only in-the-wild testing services that draw on the expertise of 150,000 professional testers worldwide. Tricentis and Applause will provide a singular source that offers businesses a comprehensive way of testing to ensure their users have a positive experience, regardless of their mobile device, operating system, carrier or location.

As enterprises extend their applications to mobile devices and disparate browsers, functional testing has become increasingly critical to business success. If users are dissatisfied with a company’s digital experience, they’ll vent their frustrations in the app stores and on social media, and are likely to jump to another brand. To avoid this damage to reputation and loss of business-and to save money by catching defects earlier in the application lifecycle-companies need better functional testing solutions that provide early insight into user experience across a wide range of devices.

By combining solutions from Tricentis and Applause, enterprises can eliminate the risk of disappointing users with low-quality apps. They can begin by using Tricentis’ Risk Coverage Optimizer to identify the most important test cases, test those with the Tricentis Tosca Testsuite, and then perform in-the-wild testing with Applause. Applause leverages a global community of 150,000 professional testers who put applications through their paces under real-world conditions across devices, OSes, browsers, carriers and locations.

“As organizations adopt agile methodologies to accelerate time to market for applications, test optimization and continuous automated testing become critical to the success of the business,” said Sandeep Johri, Tricentis CEO. “Our partnership with Applause brings together two key testing disciplines to meet this need for enterprises and their end users.”

As part of this agreement, Tricentis and Applause will collaborate on co-marketing events, as well as co-exhibiting at other events and joint webinars.

“We’re committed to helping enterprises launch high-quality digital experiences that delight their users,” said Applause CEO Doron Reuveni . “By combining the automation expertise of Tricentis with the unparalleled access to user acceptance that comes with testing in the wild, companies can be certain their apps and websites work as well in the hands of users as they do in the test lab.”

The two companies can be seen together at Tricentis’ user conference –Tricentis Accelerate – on September 18 th, in Vienna.
