About usability & performance testing

Usability and performance testing can help you reduce risks and liability by giving insight into the quality of a product or component. DEKRA offers customers a wide range of fitness-for-use (FFS), performance and tests across our network of testing laboratories worldwide. Our usability and performance testing specialists have decades of experience of ensuring that customers’ products are rigorously tested against different conditions, use cases and additional requirements beyond basic regulatory standards. Usability and performance tests usually focus on areas including functionality, handling, user-friendliness and accessibility. Our experts perform comprehensive tests against standardized performance plans or develop test plans according to the particular needs of the customer.
In global markets where competition is fierce, DEKRA’s rigorous product testing helps our customers to improve their products by benchmarking against state-of-the-art solutions and their competitors’ products.
