In today’s rapidly-growing and truly global software industry, success is now more than ever dependent on the quality of the software that is produced. A high-quality product or service leads to a satisfied and loyal customer base, which should be the main goal of every company. A business which compromises on quality loses out on loyal customers in the long run.”
The challenge IT managers and software executives face is common: how do we effectively test applications to a higher standard, on time, within budget, whilst at the same time balancing company resources? There are a number of options for staffing and sourcing the various tasks of software testing, which mostly combine three main options:
- In-house staff
- Outsourcing firms
- Crowdsourcing communities
These three options have historically been viewed by some as an "either/or" choice. But because of technology and innovative business models, this is no longer the case. uTest Crowdsourcing is revolutionizing how companies test software.
