Flander and Futuremark to Cooperate in Mobile Device Performance Testing



Software testing and development company Flander and performance benchmarking developer Futuremark have entered into a cooperation agreement. According to the agreement, Futuremark and Flander exchange tools for mobile device performance and functionality testing. Flander also provides Futuremark with services that help Futuremark and its clients to measure and analyse mobile device performance. Thereby, both companies can provide extended and more complete measurement and benchmarking for their customers.

According to the agreement, Futuremark offers tools for mobile device performance testing to Flander. Flander provides Futuremark with services that help Futuremark and its clients to receive information on mobile device performance.

”Mobile device product development is at a turning point. It’s no longer enough that the devices look good and have numerous functions. Usability and innovations relating to it are now more central. The growing popularity of Apple iPhone is a clear proof of this development. When evaluating usability, the emphasis is on the performance of the device; how quickly it responses to user control, how it copes in common use, and at the same time, how well it handles flashy multimedia," says Flander CEO Markus Suomi.

”With the tools of Flander and Futuremark, we can provide exact information and analyses of the performance of our client's mobile solutions. During product development we can ensure good performance, and thus good usability. Futuremark is a noted benchmarking software provider, so we at Flander are very happy about this partnership," Suomi continues.

”More and more, the consumers demand better performance, varied multimedia properties and developed graphics from their mobile devices. Together with Flander, we can meet these needs better than ever by offering the leading mobile companies testing services and tools that cover the actual new applications and uses of mobile devices and smartphones," says Futuremark’s Petri Talala, vice president, mobile and embedded business.
