TestPlant and SunFuture join forces in Japan; Companies combine to bring benefits of automated software testing to the Japanese market

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) London, UK & Tokyo, Japan -- TestPlant, the automated software testing company, today announced it has signed a partnership agreement with SunFuture, the Japanese system integration company.

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.

Following a recent meeting in Tokyo, TestPlant CEO, George Mackintosh, and SunFuture President & COO, Hide Maeda, finalised the details of the deal and subsequently conducted a series of joint meetings with major Japanese enterprises.

"With eggPlant's ability to automate the testing of software on mainframes, desktop systems and mobiles, there are significant opportunities in Japan," said Hide Maeda. "Japan is a leader in many consumer technologies and has a highly developed mobile market - making it a perfect match for TestPlant's automated testing solutions." eggPlant is used across software testing environments including mobile application testing, cross-platform testing, rich internet application testing and performance testing.

"SunFuture is a very impressive company - their engineers know eggPlant almost as well as we do," said George Mackintosh.

"The recent release of Japanese language support on our optical character recognition feature puts eggPlant in a strong and unique position in this exciting market." TestPlant's Head of Business Development - APAC, Doug Ferguson, will manage the relationship and work in collaboration with SunFuture to reinforce the company's commitment to the Japanese market.
