Increase test coverage with remote testing

Ensure maximum test coverage

Simultaneously run desktop tests remotely in different environments with Ranorex Remote.

Use your time to the fullest by distributing tests to remote machines. Using the Ranorex Remote feature in Ranorex Studio, you can simultaneously test your desktop application in multiple environments – using different system configurations, versions of the application under test, operating systems, and many more. You can continue working on your local machine in the meantime and will receive an automatic notification once a test has been executed and its report is ready. Ranorex Remote is also great for working in teams. Users within a network can access and deploy tests to the same agents, as well as receive all test reports from the remote machines to keep track of the project status and performance.

Deliver the high quality your customers demand

Perform regression testing to ensure updates to the system do not break existing functionality.

It’s a fact that every modification or addition to existing and previously-tested code may introduce defects to the system – also called regressions. By integrating automated testing into your nightly CI builds, or running automated regression tests before every release, you can automatically verify the functionality of existing software with every build. Automating these time-intensive and repetitive tests counteracts constraints in resources, shortens release cycles, and increases efficiency, which ultimately leads to a higher ROI.

Before Ranorex, our regression set required three people for 8 hours. After implementation, all tests ran overnight without human intervention.
