The experts of TESTiLAB have a long history with Nokia, with almost all testing laboratories originally being built and operated by Nokia Mobile Phones. The majority of TESTiLABS customers are from the telecommunication sector, but their test services have also been extended to health technology, the automotive industry as well as to loT devices. Customers can make use of TESTiLABS' testing services when developing their products, when in need for regulatory approvals and certifications or for quality assurance prior to sales of a product or SW service.

"Test services' joint sales and marketing channel was developed to allow testing companies to combine their service offerings to be part of larger service offerings. Small companies have difficulties approaching and gaining business from large multinational companies. Sales and Marketing are expensive and time-consuming, and a common sales and marketing strategy will help companies to achieve better visibility and also, if necessary, gain support and help from each other. You could say that our goal is to be the 'Uber of testing,' where the customers can choose the most appropriate testing services"

The customer of TESTiLABS are multinational companies and TESTiLABS' sales and marketing organization has local resources in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia. Their testing laboratories are located in Finland, the United Kingdom, Mexico and Brazil with potential test laboratory companies in Central Europe, North America and Asia.

Jaakko Sauvola, Director of Hilla-program is pleased about the foundation: "We are very delighted that we have been able to support the foundation of TESTiLABS." Their public launch was at Barcelona Mobile World Congress on February 2017.
