uTest Site Revamped for Collaboration

Southborough, MA-based uTest, a Web-based service that helps software companies crowdsource their quality assurance processes to freelance testers, relaunched its website today with an emphasis on collaboration tools for its community of more than 16,000 testers. A new forum area allows testers to create personal profiles, exchange private messages, and share their best practices, while a “Meet our Testers” application shows the locations of testers on an interactive global map. “Collaboration has always been critical to successful software testing, as the process often involves multiple teams and multiple projects,” Doron Reuveni, CEO of uTest, said in a statement. “uTest is excited to further extend our leadership in human software testing by facilitating the free exchange of ideas.”

    There might be a downfall in tester knowledge and testing accuracy.

    The overall quality of testing is absolutely crucial to our business. Without it, we couldn’t have grown so quickly since our August 2008 launch.

    That’s why uTest enables customers to rate each tester and re-invite their top testers from previous projects. So QA managers can build a virtual testing team that grows in familiarity and knowledge of the customers’ web and mobile apps.

    uTest enables companies build a virtual testing team; to publish their in-house test plans, scripts and documentation; and to manage our community of 16,000 QA pros from around the world.
