Every day, an average of more than 85,000 passengers ride more than 300 Amtrak trains and the company recently launched mobile applications that cater to the different information, scheduling and other needs of its passengers. SeeTest will be used as the company-wide solution ensuring the Amtrak mobile applications meet the highest standard of quality across all mobile operating systems including iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone.

"We are honored that Amtrak - the leader in transportation in North America - has selected SeeTest for their mobile testing needs," said Tal Barmeir, CEO at Experitest. "Their decision to take the full SeeTest eco-system including automation (SeeTestAutomation), manual (SeeTestManual) and the device lab solution (SeeTestCloud) have added them to our existing 300 Enterprise customer base. We are looking forward to continued work together with this top notch customer."

“We found the features offered by this tool benefits us. We will integrate the tool with our existing environment and use it across all mobile platforms. This will allow us to build a core automation solution that can be used with various applications,” said Norm Villacorte, Sr. Director of IT Shared Services at Amtrak. “The cloud feature will allow us to efficiently share test devices, reducing dependency on physical devices. All of these features combined will shorten the time to Market by compressing test execution cycles and expand testing scope resulting in delivery of a quality product.”

Barmeir explained that the SeeTest suite of tools – SeeTestManual, SeeTestAutomation and SeeTestCloud – is the best available solution in the market for large scale enterprise deployments. Also, the ability to work remotely via SeeTestCloud makes the tool appropriate for use in a large scale, geographically dispersed set up as is prevalent in Amtrak development and testing teams.

The full inventory of tests is fully integrated into the HP UFT and QC environment as the SeeTest ecosystem plugs into all ALM environments.
