Benefits that eggPlant for Mobile provides
eggPlant for Mobile is a on-premise solution. The advantage that an on premise solution like eggPlant provides over a bundle of hosted solution is that users can test for connectivity interruptions, WiFi-to-3G hand-overs, location services, low battery situations and even new, unreleased devices using eggPlant for mobile which might not be possible with hosted solutions. Being on-premise solution eggPlant for Mobile ensures that devices are always available when testers need them, that devices are always in a clean known state, and allows more advanced user experience testing.
As against manual testing eggPlant makes 24 hour testing possible with auditable trail for accountability and runs faster than human beings. It saves time with respect to scripting also, as one script can be used for testing multiple devices and platforms.
- Against Crowdsourced Testing
As against crowd-sourced testing, eggPlant for Mobile is secure and ensures that company data is kept behind firewall. You get complete control over test environment and testers and one script can be used for testing of multiple devices and platforms.
eggPlant is a horizontal application that can be extended from mobile to server and even to mainframe, going beyond pure mobile app testing to test any software that uses a GUI.
