The Silicon Review
“We are driven by two principles – to deliver excellent customer service in every phase of the business and to be easy to do business with.”
Every day thousands of new apps are uploaded, billions downloaded, and they must run successfully on tablets, smartphones, vehicles, watches, kitchen appliances and a slew of new devices arriving each day at lightning speed. We need strong testing platforms and tools for mobile app testing, mobile device testing and mobile website testing. Providing next-generation testing tools for enterprises is Atlanta based company, Mobile Labs.
It delivers solutions to help the enterprise deploy quality mobile apps for Android, iOS and Windows platforms while also managing mobile devices and test device access in a private, secure cloud. Some of the world’s largest banks are customers of Mobile Labs.
The company was founded in 2011, out of a major retailer’s project that automated regression testing of an employee-facing mobile application. The project yielded Mobile Labs Trust™, which provides automated mobile testing that speeds delivery of quality mobile apps on multiple platforms, mobile OS versions, and device types.

Perks of deviceConnect:
Let’s Pick the Brains of the President, Dan McFall
Brief us about your first project launch. Was it rewarding?
Our first customer remains one of our most dedicated and successful customers, with multiple expansions into a variety of project teams. We initially faced a highly competitive situation, and there were definite expectations of what they liked and what they did not like – we have learned a great deal from them and we continue to be great partners. We were able to successfully deliver the key components that led to an initial successful project and that continue to be in use.
What are the greatest attributes of Mobile Labs?
Mobile Labs Team – Our team at Mobile Labs is our greatest asset. Without the passion and knowledge that our team brings to work daily, we would not have had the success that we have had over the past several years
Technology – Thanks to deviceConnect, deviceBridge, and our Appium support, we are a market leader in private device cloud deployment for the enterprise.
Ability to Adapt/Evolve – Mobility is a constantly changing industry. At Mobile Labs, we’ve responded to demand and managed to stay current.
Great Customers – We are committed to listening to our customers, and we rely on our user groups, conversations with customers, and meetings at trade shows and industry events to ensure that our products are addressing the needs of our customers.
Supportive Community – We have a strong stable of partners who have introduced us to some great organizations over the years. We are also active in our local technology community here in Atlanta, particularly the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) which helps us to build industry relationships.
“When we implemented Mobile Labs Trust, that’s when we realized the full benefit of the product… Nine months in, our team is quite happy with Mobile Labs and its solutions. The gains in efficiency, simplicity and collaboration have already paid off in dividends.”
- Sander Stevens, test manager, ABN AMRO Bank
“Within a few hours, the Mobile Labs team had the solution out of the crate and up and running, and we were writing automation scripts. We were using the product in production mode within a day. The solution was exactly what we were looking for and has delivered outstanding results.”
- Chris Dale, IT Test and Release Manager, Simplyhealth
