    Crowd Testing
    3’s a crowd.


A more recent innovation is the introduction of Crowd Testing as a capability. The Crowd is formed from professional testers across multiple geographies who sign up to perform testing as “The Crowd”. This makes available a wealth of testing talent, across many technologies and using a multitude of device/OS combinations. Choose your group of testers from amongst those with the required technology, equipment, experience and form a test pool for testing a specific application.

The Crowd really comes into its own for testing of web and mobile applications, where discreet URL’s can be provided to allow access to a new development and thoroughly test this from the perspective of a real used experience, but with a friendly audience. The testers are paid only on the defects that they locate and then paid more if the defect is of particular importance. Duplicate defects are removed prior to submission to the client for review and the client determines whether a defect is real and how significant it is considered to be.

Key Benefits

If you don’t have a test team, have no tester availability, need to augment your UAT, require specific languages for localisation, then The Crowd could be the solution that you are looking for.

The crowd can be purchased by licensed use for people with regular requirements through to purchase of a single run. One of the most radical changes to the testing industry in the last 20 years; Heads of Test should consider using this to overcome peaks in demand.

Use Case

A retailer was able to employ The Crowd as a mechanism and was able to quantify a reduction in the cost to find a defect from their offshore/onshore model at £430 per defect, to a best case of £20 per defect with the crowd.

Fast, efficient and cost effective the solution was procured by license and re-use significantly reduced the cost to test.
