The Applause Difference

Crowdtesting with Applause

Since pioneering the crowdtesting concept in 2007, Applause has helped thousands of companies drive positive business outcomes by revolutionizing their digital quality.

What is Crowdtesting?

Crowdtesting, or crowdsourced testing, is a fast, cost effective way to continually deliver high quality software and great customer experiences. Crowdtesting uses a globally dispersed workforce of vetted, software professionals who test on their own devices. The distributed, on-demand nature provides unmatched scalability/elasticity, device coverage, and time-to-results when compared to traditional testing approaches. Crowdtesting is more than the new way; it’s the only way to scale testing in the modern SDLC, and is quickly becoming an integral best practice for many leading companies.

At Applause, we put your software in the hands of the people who ultimately determine its success or failure: customers. Devices, languages, and the way people use software varies greatly by location and demographics. That’s why we test with real people, on real devices, under real-world conditions, so you can release with confidence every time.
