Delivering flawless digital experiences has many hurdles

Teams are challenged with building and maintaining applications that can meet the expectations of their global user base. They frequently struggle to: 

  • Determine the root causes of issues that degrade end user experience, such as latency in user interaction and load times, low page content, and video quality of experience
  • Get the in-depth data they need without resorting to different levels of instrumentation
  • Run manual and automated tests on real local devices – no simulators and emulators needed

Mobile testers and developers need a tool that can deliver the velocity and scale required for success in today’s digital economy.

Frequently Asked Questions

"We're leveraging HeadSpin Compass as a cost-effective solution for mobile test automation coverage. Compass fits our needs for functional, exploratory and performance testing. 

For functional automation, our CI/CD pipeline executes our regression test suite against a variety of supported devices Compass provides. For exploratory testing, we leverage the Compass device cloud to manually verify app behavior. For performance testing, we have instrumented app deployments in the device cloud to validate response times while profiling our code — and we have plans to further take advantage of the performance tooling via Compass. 

The HeadSpin team has been very responsive and helpful — particularly in setting up test integration with a new Flutter-based app we're building.
