We’re thrilled to announce we have been acquired by California-based Sauce Labs, which provides the world’s largest cloud-based platform for automated testing of web and mobile applications. The acquisition of TestObject will position Sauce Labs as the only vendor providing automated testing coverage across desktops, emulators, simulators and real devices for web, mobile, hybrid and native apps.
We’ve chosen to partner with Sauce Labs because we believe our newly combined test offering will allow us to innovate faster with additional resources and expertise. We’re very excited to join the Sauce Labs team as their new European headquarters, with our CEO Hannes Lenke serving as the General Manager for EMEA operations.
“We’re tremendously excited to join Sauce Labs during this transformational time in the software development industry,” said Hannes Lenke, CEO of TestObject. “We are most pleased with the people of Sauce Labs and the great cultural match between our teams, and we are excited to help the company grow their market share in Europe.”
Since our founding in 2012, our mission at TestObject has been to work hard and develop a great mobile testing platform that addresses the pain points of our customers. Our focus on delivering high speed testing on real devices has paid off. We currently offer the fastest manual testing capabilities available on the market; our cloud-based test infrastructure can match the speed of testing on local real devices, which has not been possible until now.
“We were attracted to TestObject for its high speed and reliable real device testing for mobile applications and the amazing engineering team behind it,” said Charles Ramsey, CEO of Sauce Labs. “This strategic acquisition accelerates our ability to provide the most comprehensive web and mobile testing solution in the market today. Our customers will benefit from a single platform for all their web and mobile automated testing needs.”
What does this mean for our customers?
For now, nothing will change. There will be some exciting changes in the near future, as we work to integrate our test infrastructure within the Sauce Labs platform. We will work to ensure our customers are able to benefit from a single, comprehensive testing platform that will cover all your web and mobile testing needs. We will keep you updated!
