HEALTH & FITNESS
Health & Fitness is a space where everything has to be right: perfect functionality + perfect usability = no excuses and great up-take.
As well as usability, it is imperative that the connectivity and functionality work seamlessly.
If your Health & Fitness app is not tested effectively across multiple devices and platforms (or even hardware), you could run into serious issues. These issues will affect your customers’ ability to use the product and ultimately force them out of health and fitness routines which could be critical to their lifestyle.
CHALLENGES FOR HEALTH & FITNESS
Keeping up with Health & Fitness tech from a functional, usability and security perspective is critical when your users rely on your apps and websites for lifestyle related matters. Here are a few other challenges your sector may face:
- Seamless functionality so bugs don’t give users another reason not to complete their objectives
- Highly accurate geolocation
- Seamless sync-technology across multiple devices and platforms and connected hardware as required
- Ensuring the app works in all situations
HOW DO WE HELP HEALTH & FITNESS?
Health & Fitness apps are continuously embracing next-gen technology, notably implants and wearables. Ensuring a high level of quality within this fresh and exciting space can be difficult. We are already working with a handful of organisations who pioneer the next-gen Health & Fitness technology and we support them to ensure the product works and the user experience is incredible.
BROAD DEVICE COVERAGE
Typically, companies might test between 5-15 browsers and mobile devices. What is not realised is that customers use a much wider set of devices. In fact, to cover 80% of mobile traffic, you need to cover 152 devices, which is simply not possible in-house. In comparison, Crowdsourced teams can number up to 300 testers and more and as such can test a single piece of software on hundreds of unique devices, browsers and operating systems simultaneously. So you can be confident that your software will work correctly on a large majority of devices used by your customers, thereby protecting your reputation online.
FASTER TIME TO MARKET
With BugFinders’ Crowdsourced Testing model, we are able to cover a wide range of devices and browsers and the number of testers means that we can comprehensively test apps within 24 hours, websites in 1-2 days, and large eCommerce sites in just 3 days or less. As a result, the normal test period length of 1-3 days can be kept to, without sacrificing quality. Our testers don’t stop on weekends, so the business impact can be minimal. In addition, projects can be launched at an hours’ notice, making Crowdsourced Software Testing ideal for development projects with tight deadlines.
COST CONTAINED PRICING
If you do your testing in-house and use developers or other staff to carry it out, you are effectively paying out salaries, on-costs and management overheads for that testing to be performed.
Costs remain high if testing is outsourced to a traditional company. Partnering with BugFinders, allows for much more cost-containment. The fact that our Crowdsourced testers are paid per bug, rather than for time spent testing, means that significant savings are made on the costs of paying out tester salaries, and these are passed on to clients in fixed cost pricing structures.
HOW MUCH WILL THIS COST ME?
You may be surprised how cost effective BugFinders is. Our services are based on the Crowdsourced model, so you can benefit from many internal cost savings by partnering with BugFinders.
