Buildpan empowers the mobile application developers with the power of automating the process sending automated mails with downloadable links of the builds(.ipa &.apk) files regularly whenever a new build is created , hence notifying the team members (QA ,clients etc). Manually sending builds to teams is really an iterative and tedious job , automating this directly saves 37% of the developers time.
Buildpan automates this entire process through slack & e-mail , making it a one time process while setting up the account at initial stages.
For any application there are many potential stakeholders who need to receive builds and updates throughout development. Whether it’s a group of external beta testers, an internal QA team, the Project Manager, or a Company Executive, developers must have the ability to send any build of their app out to stakeholders on demand.
For traditional web applications, sending a specific build is as easy as sharing a URL of webpage. However to share a mobile app, developers must ensure stakeholders can install and open the app on their device.
Because of Apple’s added security requirements, this is a particularly time-consuming and often frustrating process for iOS developers. Distributing an iOS app to any new stakeholder or test device is an extremely convoluted process that introduces significant friction to the development process. Making a new stakeholder’s device available for testing and sending the application to that stakeholder can take days, wasting the development team and the stakeholder’s time. Furthermore, if you cannot send a build to a stakeholder and trust they will be able to reliably install it, a development team will be less likely to send out builds at all.Buildpan automates this entire process updating the team regularly through mails & slack groups whenever a new build is created helping developers with multitasking capability.
