SOCIAL & COLLABORATION
As consumerisation evolves, the Social & Collaboration elements of the digital space are becoming more and more prevalent in everyone’s day to day lives. To facilitate maximum uptake by the widest possible audience, it is imperative that you have got usability and functionality covered.
CHALLENGES FOR SOCIAL & COLLABORATION
Keeping up with the competition and making your app unique yet functional, is key to keeping ahead of the Social & Collaboration hybrid model. For this reason, bugs are bad news. Thankfully we can help. Our clients understand that we solve these challenges for them:
- Making sure their site or app is intuitive to their target audience
- Ensuring all product features work correctly despite aggressive release schedules
- Testing specific customer configuration maps
- Privacy and security compliance
HOW DO WE HELP SOCIAL & COLLABORATION?
BugFinders Usability Testing service means that you can have UX consultants and a vast team of ‘real users’ at your fingertips. Working with you, we identify your target user demographics. Then our crowd will work through your site or app to highlight the issues that will frustrate your users – so you can get them fixed.
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.
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 software 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 you 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.
