Sauce Labs Acquires TestObject
December 13, 2016

Sauce Labs acquired TestObject, a real device mobile app testing platform.

The combined solution enables Sauce Labs to provide automated testing coverage across desktops, emulators, simulators, and real devices for web applications and mobile, web, hybrid and native apps.

“We were attracted to TestObject for its high speed and reliable real device testing for mobile applications, as well as 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.”

Sauce Labs already offers a large cloud based automated testing platform, running more than one million tests per day and more than 800 million tests run to date across desktop, emulators, simulators, and real devices. The TestObject acquisition brings additional real device coverage (200+ device types), a private cloud solution for enterprises that require the highest level of security, and high speed manual testing on real devices. Combine that with Sauce Lab’s existing Real Device Cloud for automated mobile app testing in high concurrency, and Sauce Labs cements its position as a comprehensive web and mobile testing platform.

“We’re tremendously excited to join Sauce Labs during this transformational time in the software development industry,” said Hannes Lenke, CEO of TestObject. “Sauce Labs is the industry leader in the automated testing market with great brand awareness, thought leadership, and a global customer base. Our customers will not only benefit from our newly combined offering, but also our ability to innovate faster with additional resources and expertise. 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.”

TestObject is headquartered in Berlin, Germany and will provide a new European headquarters for Sauce Labs with Hannes Lenke serving as the General Manager for EMEA operations.
