TestPlant and BOW join forces in Korea
eggPlant range of software testing solutions well matched to the needs of the Korean market

London, UK & Seoul, Korea – July 26, 2013 – TestPlant, the automated software testing company, today announced it has signed a partnership agreement with BOW Technology, a Korean technology supplier company based in Seoul.

TestPlant is the company behind the eggPlant range, a set of software test tools allowing developers and test engineers to automate the testing of any application from mainframe to mobile using patented image recognition technology. eggPlant can then be used to load test the performance of applications both before release and when live.

Established in 1991, BOW is a major supplier of network performance and load testing products. The company works with companies such as Fluke Networks, Tektronix and Netoptics, and has sold to all telecommunications carriers in Korea, as well as numerous equipment manufacturers and many large enterprises from a range of sectors, including financial services.

“We are excited to be working with TestPlant as the eggPlant range of functional and performance testing tools for applications and devices with GUI interfaces is a natural extension of their business,” said Mr. JW Shim, CEO, BOW Technology. “With eggPlant, we can now offer our customers a complete testing solution from the network to the application and ultimately the user experience.”

“Korea is a highly advanced country when it comes to technology adoption and innovation, making it an ideal fit for the eggPlant range of software testing tools,” said George Mackintosh, CEO, TestPlant. “Large enterprises and technology systems developers can save considerable time and money on their testing programmes by deploying our automated testing solutions that are both easy to learn and use, and support multi-lingual applications through optical character recognition.”

TestPlant’s Head of Business Development – APAC, Doug Ferguson, will manage the relationship and work in collaboration with BOW to support the partnership in Korea.
