Mobot launches the first Robot-Powered QA-as-a-Service Testing platform for Mobile Apps

    Mobot recently announced the launch of its QA-as-a-service Testing platform and also announced that it has raised $12.5 million in Series A funding round which was led by Cota Capital, and saw participation from Uncorrelated Ventures, Heavybit, and others. Mobot’s innovative platform employs physical robots to address mobile application testing.

    About Mobot

    Mobot which was founded in 2018 is the first robot-powered QA-as-a-service testing platform for mobile applications. It is the sole technology that utilizes physical robots on actual, physical devices to perform high-quality, automated testing of mobile applications for enterprises. Mobot is used by well-known firms such as Persona, Radar, Citizen, and many others to automate manual app testing.

    “Mobot has helped us increase our App Store rating from 4.2 to 4.8 and achieve a 99.9% crash-free rate,” said Swamy Ramaswamy, CTO, and COO at Sandboxx. “Our app is responsible for helping military service members send and receive physical letters with family, so stability is crucial. Mobot is a critical part of our QA workflow and regularly uncovers issues that weren’t surfaced by our internal software testing process.”

    In today’s world, mobile users deal with a plethora of notifications, operating systems, integrations, physical devices, and numerous other points which are beyond the control of developers. Emulators and related virtual QA environments are incapable of testing the massive quantity of extreme situations that lead to performance and functionality failures. The $40 billion software testing sector fills gaps with low-cost labor, but at a significant expense and with varying testing precision.

    Mobot addresses this issue by providing the only QA-as-a-service testing platform that employs cutting-edge tactile robots to automate the testing of recurring operations in a real-world setting. This method avoids countless hours of manual testing, massively enhances testing efficiency, and captures more defects in-app before app store releases.

    “The limitations of QA software mean too many people hours are burned testing mobile apps to make sure they ship right the first time. Mobot’s non-obvious insight to use physical robots for manual testing is an ingenious solution,” said Adit Singh, partner at Cota Capital. “Its fleet of robots are more reliable and do the job with accuracy and consistency. Mobot helps eliminate tedious, manual testing so customers can ship their mobile apps with confidence, every time.”

    The difficult use cases for which Mobot can automate tests are as follows:

    • Backward Compatibility Testing such as data breaches triggered by third-party software on older iOS devices, as well as camera testing for various Android versions.
    • Stability of streaming data, specifically push notifications, which are becoming more complicated and dependent.
    • Sophisticated hardware and software interaction, like multi-device engagements for rapid texting and ride-hailing, as well as Bluetooth/WiFi-enabled hardware links.
    • Critical action stability, such as revenue-generating activities like in-app transactions, subscription maintenance, payments API integration, user login, and more.
