There’s just three weeks until the new platform launch and pressure is starting to mount across the Development Team. IT leadership is conscious that time and resources are running out to make sure the launch goes without a hitch and that there are no serious issues on the platform to worry about. Unfortunately, it's virtually impossible to deliver this sort of functional software testing in-house on a tight deadline.
Recognising this, BugFinders have created a crowdsourced, pre-release, clean-site validation solution that allows our crowd to deliver close to 90 days of software testing in just 72 hours. Thousands of qualified testers perform two rounds of comprehensive software testing services that ensure complete functionality across multiple devices. Upon completion, you'll receive a certificate to confirm that the site has been tested and is working perfectly, leaving you to enjoy a successful launch.
Barely a month goes by these days without one of the major smartphone or tablet providers releasing a new model – and in the alternate months either IOS, Android or Windows will make new operating system releases. Given that there are now more than 20,000 different mobile devices in the world, how can IT leaders possibly keep up with this constant pace of change?
The answer is BugFinders’ Always On software testing programme which consists of both a full, monthly ‘heartbeat’ test as well as making the platform permanently available to the crowd in between tests so they can make sure everything’s functioning as intended. Any serious issues spotted during the month are instantly communicated to the IT team to minimise any lost revenue.
There’s little doubt we’re in the middle of a truly significant digital transformation era as leading organisations across the world look to sanitise their customer-facing technology platforms. All this re-platforming means functional software testing teams are coming under more and more pressure to ensure the relaunch goes perfectly – and these are teams already stretched to the limit.
BugFinders have therefore created Be Certain: Re-platforming — a bundle of software testing services covering everything from basic exploratory tests, through to scenario and detailed script testing. It ensures every element of the new world works exactly as it should. We can even include comprehensive Usability testing to find out how real customer demographics feel about the new platform.
Highly developed web and mobile applications require a comprehensive software testing services – a solution that defies the inherent barriers of time and resource restraints that prevail in-house.
Be Certain is a testing resource that breaks down these barriers by unlocking the power of the crowd whenever you need it most. The solution allows the 55,000-strong BugFinders crowd testing community – spread across 145 countries – to become an instantly-deployable member of the in-house development team, set to work rigorously testing your software in real-world scenarios all over the globe.
The BugFinders Crowd delivers fast-paced, multi-device and multi-location testing in support of in-house QA teams just when it is needed most. Available 24/7/365, our crowdsourced testing community work ahead of every major release to uncover the critical performance issues that could hinder a successful launch.
In under 72-hours, 90 man-days of critical functional software testing are delivered, complete with comprehensive reporting on the top 10-20 bugs and snags that could cause your application to crash in the real-world, or prevent significant customer journeys from being completed.
BugFinders provide the peace of mind you need through the knowledge that your software has been extensively tested across all major devices, on all major technology platforms. Let the crowd do the heavy lifting that you don’t have the time to do – and, before you release, Be Certain.
