Implementing automated testing
at a leading telecom provider
Ben NL, or Ben, is a Dutch virtual mobile network operated by T-Mobile Netherlands with roughly 600,000 users. Its users are mainly students and people within the 30-40-year-old age group. Ben offers its voice, text, and data services at a highly discounted rate and this is achieved by offering relatively limited customer service.
With this high level of self-service, the mobile app plays a central role within the Ben ecosystem, as around 60-70% of the users are using it. The most common actions a user performs in the app are checking their calling and mobile data limits, with the option of buying extra data (as MBs) and also modifying subscription options and perks from month to month. Through the app customers also have access to invoices and account information.
“Together with spriteCloud we were able to professionalise the testing procedure of the Ben app with test automation.”
