Automated software testing to benefit South East Asian enterprises

London, UK & Hong Kong – April 30, 2013 – TestPlant, the automated software testing company, today announced it has signed a partnership agreement with FDS Networks,  the Hong Kong based regional system integration company in Asia.

TestPlant is the company behind eggPlant, the only test automation tool that uses patented image recognition technology to allow software developers to test any application from mainframe to mobile, by looking at and interacting with the screen exactly as a real user does.

With offices across Greater China and the ASEAN countries, FDS delivers networking and systems solutions to companies across Asia. Following extensive meetings and planning sessions with TestPlant, FDS is now primed to begin selling and supporting eggPlant throughout the region.

“Software application development in China and the South East Asian countries has been increasing drastically for all industries, particularly in the financial and telecoms sectors, driven especially by the significant increases in smart mobile devices, and this is creating a strong need for systems and solutions that help ensure product quality,” said Charles Lam, Director, FDS Mobile Solution. “We see that partnering with TestPlant creates new market and revenue for FDS across the Asia Pacific region”, said Shadow Hui, Executive Director, of FDS,

eggPlant is used across software testing environments including mobile application testing, cross-platform testing, rich internet application testing and performance testing.

“We are delighted to be working with a company like FDS, which has extensive regional expertise and a compelling network of customers and contacts within key sectors like banking and communications,” said George Mackintosh, CEO of TestPlant. “As countries across Asia continue to grow and develop their own enterprise applications, the requirement for a quality test automation tool like eggPlant will only increase.”

TestPlant’s Head of Business Development – APAC, Doug Ferguson, will manage the relationship and work in collaboration with FDS to reinforce the company’s commitment to the South East Asian market.
