SANTA MONICA, California and LONDON, December 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
TestPlant, the automated software testing company, today announced that is has been included on the prestigious Red Herring Top Global 100 list of leading private companies. Red Herring's Top 100 award is assembled in recognition of the leading private companies from North America, Europe, and Asia, celebrating these innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
One of only three UK-based companies on the list, 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. 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 have been recognized by Red Herring as one of the Global 100 for our innovation in automated software testing," said George Mackintosh, CEO of TestPlant. "With the proliferation of mobile and web-based applications, the requirement to conduct high quality software testing has never been greater, and eggPlant's unique approach to testing using image recognition sets us apart from the competition."
Red Herring's Top 100 Global list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
"Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across Global to the Top 100 Winners. We believe TestPlant embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. TestPlant should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been."
