Based on its recent analysis of the production automation testing market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes JOT Automation Ltd. with the 2013 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Leadership.
The company takes substantial effort to design and deliver innovative solutions that are in sync with emerging technological advancements. Frequent product introductions and enhancements, along with the company's strategic decision to extend its business markets, have enabled it to develop close relationships with its customers.
Frost & Sullivan feels that the company offering fully automatic tests is best positioned to achieve higher success over other participants in this highly competitive market.
As a prominent supplier of production automation and testing solutions, JOT Automation's strong customer base includes industry-leading companies from different verticals such as IT, automotive, life sciences, shipping and aviation. With nearly 25 years of experience and an annual global turnover of about EUR 50 million, the company's footprint covers Europe, North America and Asia.
JOT Automation's robust production automation testing solutions are all-inclusive, cost-effective and user-friendly. They are advanced enough to withstand product and technological complexities. Two flagship products that highlight the company's supremacy over similar products in the market are the JOT M10 (for PCB level functional testing) and JOT G3 (for functional testing of ready product).
"The JOT G3 product clearly marks a breakthrough in the mobile industry, enabling mobile manufacturers—who are the key end users—to save time and money," said Frost & Sullivan Program Manager Olga Yashkova-Shapiro. "Capable of expediting operational efficiency while minimizing labor costs, the JOT G3 can initiate fully automatic tests on handsets in a repetitive manner. Serving as an integrated platform to carry out multiple tests in comparison to divided test solutions or manual tests, this significant product offering truly affirms higher quality and ultimate efficiency."

"Frost & Sullivan expects this solution to redefine the testing environment by being the most effective, accessible and flexible testing solution for functional testing across mobile phones, smartphones, tablet computers, PCs, motherboards, and automotive electronics," noted Shapiro.
Other features that enhance value to customers include the capability of the solutions to operate in the R&D and real-time production environment and enable prompt scaling up of the production process, as well as a modular system architecture that allows easy compliance with various production criteria.
