Testing automation platform Tricentis acquires Waldo
Austin-based test automation platform Tricentis has made a significant move in its M&A strategy by acquiring Waldo, an automated testing tool for mobile development teams. Waldo, known for its innovative no-code mobile testing platform, enables developers to simplify the process of test authoring, management, and execution directly from a browser. By leveraging virtual mobile devices, including iOS simulators and Android emulators, Waldo allows organizations to test every commit through emulation cost-effectively. The company has received funding from First Round Capital, Insight Partners, and Matrix Partners.
The terms of the acquisition remain undisclosed. However, with the acquisition, Tricentis aims to enhance its mobile testing offerings, integrating Waldo’s no-code mobile testing product with its existing solutions, including Testim Mobile and Tosca Mobile. Waldo’s no-code approach empowers development teams to identify issues in their mobile apps by running tests on multiple devices with varying screen sizes, languages, and operating systems. Developers receive instant notifications in case of any anomalies and can review test replays for debugging purposes. With the help of this acquisition, Tricentis will be able to deliver higher-quality mobile applications at the pace and scale required by businesses.
Tricentis has established itself as a leader in continuous testing and quality engineering. Its AI-powered testing products offer an automated, no-code approach that enables organizations to accelerate software release cycles, reduce costs, and improve software quality. With over 2,500 customers worldwide, including renowned brands like McKesson, Allianz, and Vodafone, Tricentis has a proven track record of delivering reliable testing solutions.
Tricentis’ acquisition of Waldo reinforces its commitment to providing developers with advanced testing platforms that simplify test authoring, management, and execution. This acquisition marks a significant milestone in the evolution of mobile testing and accountability for code quality.
