BSQUARE Introduces Version 2.0 of TestQuest Countdown

BSQUARE Corp. (Nasdaq: BSQR), the leading software solutions provider to the global embedded device community, launched TestQuest Countdown version 2.0. The new release features Countdown Asset Manager Enterprise Edition, which enables mobile application developers and device manufacturers to deploy test automation globally across distributed quality assurance teams to increase collaboration, reduce costs and testing time resulting in accelerated time-to-market.

“By enabling coordination and use of test assets across geographies, Countdown version 2.0 meets the needs of globally distributed quality assurance teams managing the complexity of mobile device testing working under the pressure of increasingly shorter product life-cycles,” said Matt Herman, BSQUARE’s Director of Field Engineering and TestQuest Product Management. “Mobile application developers and device manufacturers benefit from faster time-to-market with higher quality products at a lower cost.”

Already supporting devices running Windows Mobile®, Windows® CE, Symbian, BREW, Mobile Test Connectivity and UTS, Countdown version 2.0 now features test support for BlackBerry® devices running software version 4.3 and above. Additionally, the new release saves and loads test assets up to 15 times faster and decreases test execution time by up to 20 percent when compared to previous releases.
