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.
