Gartner Includes Planit Among Leading Mobile Testing Providers Worldwide

 7 Aug 2017 

Sydney, 7 August 2017 - In their recent Market Guide for Mobile Application Testing Services1, Gartner identified Planit Testing among the leading mobile testing providers worldwide in the ‘Pure-Play Testing Service’ category.

Planit is a specialist in digital quality, offering a comprehensive range of testing services and digital solutions each designed to help organisations realise quality and value from their projects quicker. In addition to providing specialist consultancy and on-site delivery of mobile testing, Planit offers a fast and affordable on-demand testing solution delivered via Planit’s Digital QA centres using an extensive library of real devices.

Responding to Planit’s inclusion in the Guide, Planit’s Chief Executive Officer, Chris Carter, stated “Gartner’s insights are second to none, so we’re thrilled to be recognised on a global scale for our capability in mobile application testing. As the Guide’s only representative headquartered in Australia and New Zealand, we’re also pleased to be putting our region on the map and taking our services to the global market.”

“Gartner cited the plug-and-play nature of our Digital QA offering, as well as some of the efficiencies we provide. These are a few of the things that make our solution so popular” said Chris. “Digital QA was designed with our customers’ needs in mind and lives up to Planit’s core goal of accelerating quality. It’s the speed, flexibility, affordability and, importantly, quality that we offer that has our clients coming back project after project, and has propelled the growth of our Digital QA centres.”

Discussing on the state of the industry, Chris commented “It may be hard to imagine, but mobile devices are becoming even more pervasive in our personal and professional lives. Gartner predict that “By 2022, 70% of software interactions in enterprises will occur on mobile devices”1. This truly underpins the importance of mobile testing. This is exactly why it’s such an important segment for us, and why we want to stay ahead of the curve to meet the demands of the future.”
