X Topic Abstract

We all know about Uber and Airbnb and the sharing economy is disrupting major industries in every industry vertical. Software testing, like most industries, is dominated by a few large players. There is no question that the experience and expertise of these professional testing companies is incredibly valuable, but there are significant benefits to crowd testing apps and websites.

As technology rapidly advances and disruption ripens, the quality of applications should improve at the same rate. It’s predicted that in the future, 20% of the world’s testing will be done via the crowd. Crowd testing enables businesses from start-ups to enterprise firms, who want their apps and websites tested, to participate in digital transformation. Crowd testing enables businesses to test all digital products at scale, faster, easier and cheaper to create better outcomes for their customers.

Whether developing a single app or transforming an entire enterprise, Usability Testing services help organisations to execute on their digital roadmap. Usability testing reveals whether users feel comfortable with your mobile, web or cloud-based app according to different parameters. Is the application user-friendly or not? Test the ease with which the user interfaces can be used, the flow, navigation, layout, speed, content and more. Usability testing is especially useful in comparison to prior or similar applications.
