Worksoft in the top three of every report use case, including mobile applications and responsive design

DALLAS, April 26, 2016 – Worksoft®, a leading global provider of automation software for high-velocity business process testing and discovery, today announced that a new Gartner report ranks Worksoft No. 1 in the Packaged Applications Use Case for Software Test Automation. The industry report, “Critical Capabilities for Software Test Automation,”1 provides an in-depth technical review of software test automation capabilities of 12 automation solution providers in three categories: Packaged Applications, Responsive Design and Mobile Applications.

As part of the study, Gartner outlines major use cases, details functional areas and rates each vendor’s ability to support typical use-case scenarios. Worksoft is the only vendor ranked in the top three of every use case.

“We feel the new Gartner report reinforces our view that Worksoft’s end-to-end approach is market-leading and unique. We believe that no other platform matches Worksoft’s capabilities,” said Jim Kent, CEO, Worksoft. “A key differentiator is Worksoft Analyze®, which speeds up test building and allows companies to efficiently build and maintain an enormous enterprise-level portfolio of business process tests,” he said.

Gartner states, “Automation of software testing is not new, yet it is becoming more critical as organizations become digital. Functional test automation focuses on the automation of testing in a way that simulates the way a real user would interact with an application — by driving the user interface (UI).”

“The ability to ensure that the “latest update” hasn’t broken the system via an automated regression suite reduces overall costs and can boost confidence,” according to Gartner.

With Worksoft, companies shorten project timelines by 40% or more, deploy business-critical software with improved quality assurance, increase the pace of innovation with on-time delivery of new enterprise software, reduce costs by eliminating slow manual testing, and ensure business process quality on a 24/7/365 basis.
