uTest today announced the launch of uTest Express for websites, a new service that gives early-stage startups affordable access to uTest’s community of professional testers. uTest Express for websites expands their Express service, which already includes uTest Express for mobile apps.
Since 2008 uTest has been leveraging a community of 40,000 professional testers to help industry leaders like Google, Microsoft and Groupon launch high-quality web and mobile apps. Now, with uTest Express for Web, the benefits of professional website (and web app) testing and expert feedback are now available to anyone.
Even if a company has no testing experience whatsoever, uTest Express for Web makes it easy for startups to create simple test cases which testers will follow. At the end of a project, customers receive a list of well-documented bugs, including screenshots and videos with steps to reproduce them.
With the launch, uTest Express is offering test cycles for as little as $249 (50% off) until June 30, 2011, for all Bronze and Silver testing packages for web or mobile apps.
The Daily Crowdsource was able to talk with Matt Johnston, CMO of uTest, to ask him a couple questions. Here’s what he had to say:
Why’d you do it?
We launched uTest Express for testing mobile apps less than two months ago (late March), and the initial interest has been tremendous. It’s confirmed our belief that there is a sizable market among early-stage startups who have unmet needs for professional app testing and real-world feedback on their apps. In fact, we moved up the decision to expand uTest Express into website testing as a direct result of the numerous requests from Express visitors and customers.
How will it help startups?
uTest Express is designed to help emerging startups—even those without any formal QA experience or resources —ensure that their web apps function as designed across the ever-expanding matrix of operating systems, browsers, plug-ins and third party applications. This is also the first time uTest’s web app testing services have been packaged and priced for early-stage startups, giving small companies an affordable way to professionally test their web apps. AND through June 30th, we are offering 50% off all Bronze and Silver testing packages for web or mobile apps (starts at $249!).
