Product Life Testers

Product-Life-Testers-Header

A test platform for research and rapid product development

The Challenge

Fresh engineers design “testers” for early product research as well as ongoing factory-quality programs. The core challenge lies in building high-quality products that perform reliably in the real world. Thoughtfully addressing how testing is implemented and executed is a central part of the equation.

Our Solution

We’ve built custom life test systems that support up to sixty products per tester for various clients. We develop our systems to provide scriptable test protocols that allow for instant changes without writing new code, which allows every tester we build to keep up with the rapid pace of product development.

Rapid, real-time updates

Testing needs to happen early, often, and rapidly to keep up with the fast pace of product development. Understanding the importance of creating a reliable system that can handle these strenuous demands, we build our systems to provide scriptable test protocols.

As opposed to writing new code each time you run a test, our platform allows instant changes, giving you the ability to pivot as needed given your demanding timelines and product requirements.
