What We Offer

Exploratory Testing

Exploratory Testing

Applause’s in-depth exploratory testing helps to locate issues before they are released in the real world, leveraging independent, human testers who are purposefully looking for defects and issues from unexpected usage patterns or conditions. Applause testers are sourced on-demand from our community of 250,000+ QA professionals. Testers are vetted and rated based on industry experience, certifications and customer feedback from actual test program performance.

Test Case Execution

Whether you have a simple test case, a suite of test cases or none at all, Applause’s expert testers and test case writers can help you maximize your coverage by creating and executing test cases on any device, in any location. Applause testers have an average of seven years of QA experience, so Test Team Leads and subject matter experts within the community are highly qualified to work with customers and define repeatable test cases.

Localization Validation

Estimate Pricing

“In the early stages, we concentrated our manual QA on the new stuff in the next release. Timeline pressures impacted regression coverage, so we had to make decisions about what areas to test. Working with Applause, we stopped making those tradeoff decisions. We cover everything with Applause.”
