Basemark and TÜV Rheinland announced today a strategic partnership that brings to market a new certification class for electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, notebooks, and PCs. Basemark, a global leader in performance benchmarking software, and TÜV Rheinland, a global leader in technical services, are complementing each other’s assets and strengths in the partnership.
Leading OEMs of electronic devices commonly use TÜV Rheinland’s testing services to prove their products’ safety and quality. Similarly, leading OEMs and processor companies, as well as technology media, have adopted Basemark products as a key method for performance evaluations.
With this partnership, customers of TÜV Rheinland will gain a powerful service for product performance and evaluation at every stage of development, whether it is in component selection (ex. chipsets, CPUs or GPUs) or end-product assessment. While TÜV Rheinland is proficient in quality, ergonomics and safety testing of products, the cross-platform software such as Basemark X, Basemark ES, and Basemark OS can give the value-added opportunity to fine-tune the devices’ speed, stability and overall performance. As a result, manufacturers can precisely match the product with customers’ demands and position it right at the desired market segment.
”We are thoroughly excited about this partnership, because it opens a whole new category of product-quality testing” says Tero Sarkkinen, Founder and CEO of Basemark Ltd. ”Consumers, corporations, and government purchasers can now also choose products based on how fast a device performs various tasks. We firmly believe that our partnership results in better customer satisfaction. However, this is just the beginning of what we can do together with TÜV Rheinland, and I look forward to building a wide-ranging partnership that results in a wealth of new services for our combined roster of customers.”
”The thriving market for consumer electronics is constantly evolving, and user expectations are growing” says Uwe Halstenbach, Managing Director of TUV Rheinland Taiwan Ltd. ”Performance, user experience, and value-for-money are becoming the decisive factors. We are thrilled to announce this new cooperation with Basemark, a benchmark developer well-known worldwide. It gives us the unique ability to offer one-stop testing service, combining all that matters to our customers: performance, safety, reliability, and ergonomics.”
