CommScope, a networking company, relied on an on-shore testing partner using manual methods to test the core back-end functionality of its networking software. Because of the time-consuming nature and high cost of the manual testing service, CommScope chose to bypass testing the GUI component of its solution, having reasoned it to be "mature" and not subject to much change. CommScope's customers learned otherwise — with GUI bugs found in every new release. Ultimately, CommScope turned to LogiGear.
