How We Help Engineering Teams

Improve test coverage and release velocity while minimizing costs.

Find Issues Early and Increase Release Velocity

Source testers in real time to meet your needs.

Workloads can be unpredictable for engineering teams, making it difficult to correctly staff for changing business needs. Applause can help you increase the bandwidth, productivity and speed of your existing teams by providing proven testers as needed in real time. This allows you to scale up or down to reduce your backlog and match shifting testing volume.

Applause integrates with your Agile and CI/CD processes and existing systems to make testing seamless. This helps you shift left and drive testing earlier and more often throughout the SDLC. By uncovering high-quality defects in real time, Applause enables your team to make changes quickly, and gives you the time and flexibility needed to release quality software at a faster pace. With Applause’s crowdtesting approach, you can ensure you meet deadlines and increase the velocity of releases.
