Mobility offer tremendous opportunities to businesses to deliver more personalized end user experiences to enterprise and individual users. Mobilized access to information allows enterprises to offer information access to decision makers on the go, to reach out to their customers faster, and to explore engagement opportunities previously untapped.

While mobility presents new use cases and precincts, it also puts forward new challenges ahead of companies to deliver unmatched experiences faster and more accurately than their competition. As such, for companies, ensuring that mobile applications that their users interact with are of high quality remains a top priority.

With growing device diversity, and multiple operating systems versions across Android, iOS and Windows mobile that are out in the market, mobile application testing can be challenging, as well as time, labor and cost intensive.

To help its clients overcome the challenges associated with mobile application testing, and to turn them into new business opportunities and additional revenue streams, Astegic has developed a mobile test automation acceleration framework.

MTAA (Mobile Test Automation Accelerator) speeds up test automation by streamlining QA efforts and simplifying the mobile automation process.

Client Case Study

One of our clients, DubLabs was developing a unified mobility platform to help educational institutions to better engage with academic staffs by allows students to access their assignments, schedules, and activities on mobile devices. The unified experience, which is built on native apps, enables students to access their course information and provides them with better college experiences through their devices. DubLabs needed to test its unified platform on iOS and Android native apps on every device; as well as test its integration functionality with the schools’ learning management and student information systems.

Deploying MTAA, Astegic was able to rapidly select and deploy Appium, an open source mobile app test automation tool, saving 42% in QA time from implementing automation.
