GameBench is a recognized leader in game testing and provides developers and QA engineers with the ability to quickly check the UX performance and responsiveness of their apps. The company works with major partners, including Samsung, ARM, Intel, Qualcomm and Natural Motion.

TestPlant provides a comprehensive set of software test automation solutions for digital business, ranging from functional and performance testing to network virtualization and test environment management. The eggPlant tools help organizations including Wal-Mart, BT and Nationwide improve their productivity and quality.

Together, the companies are offering a joint solution that encompasses GameBench’s UX testing capabilities combined with eggPlant Functional, which uses a patented, image-based approach to automate functional testing.

User experience matters

For businesses, UX impacts directly on customer acquisition and retention. In addition to ensuring correct functionality, apps must also deliver seamless fluidity and responsiveness or customers will go elsewhere. As apps become more advanced, such as using higher-res images, media streaming, and even VR and AR, the need to keep an eye on performance becomes ever more critical. In a study commissioned by Google, 52% of users said that a bad mobile experience made them less likely to engage with a company. And 48% said that if a site didn’t work well on their smartphones, it made them feel like the company didn’t care about their business.
