The Benefits Of A Crowdsourced Testing Proof Of Concept

Remember the last time you were in the market for a new car? For many people it’s an exciting process. So how do you go about it?

First you have to budget how much you can spend on a new car, which will be the biggest decider in your choice. After that, you’ll do some research on cars that fall within your price range that have the features you need. Perhaps you’ll have a conversation with friends and family if they own one of the vehicles on your shortlist. Now that you’re armed to the teeth with enough information to sink a ship the size of the Black Pearl what do you do now? Choose with ‘eeny, meeny, miny, moe’ and call up your local dealership to pay over the phone? Not quite.

The importance of that personal experience

You wouldn’t think of buying any car without first taking it for a test drive, would you? Take yourself down to each of the dealers and get behind the wheel of your chosen models to experience the vehicle for yourself and see if what you read on paper matches up with what you feel. You’ll get a feel for how it takes corners, accelerates and brakes, and you’ll have plenty of time to consider the interior setup.

We all know how important it is to test drive a car before we buy. If you’re looking for new way to test your digital projects before going gold, wouldn’t you want to test drive what could be a huge change for your organisation?

Dip your toe in before you jump in

When companies release software, apps or websites that have bugs that interrupt the user experience, they lose customers – whether they’re internal or external. From microsites to intranet sites, landing pages, client portals, eCommerce platforms, and more, if your organisation builds medium to large web and cloud applications or complex mobile apps, you need testing that’s thorough and cost-effective.

Rethink your existing testing strategies and try crowdtesting. Not sure about making the switch? Never used the crowd before? Have reservations about its effectiveness as an alternative to traditional testing?

Beat the bugs and show your customers the true value of your software with a Proof of Concept (POC) conducted by your crowdsourced testing provider. This will allow you to realise the benefits of this cutting edge service before committing the full amount from your limited budget. Then, use the budget you’ve saved from the cost efficiencies provided by crowdtesting on other projects.

A POC allows you to try crowdtesting out on one of your smaller projects or applications; after your expectations have been met or exceeded and your doubts laid to rest, you can then move it onto larger projects with confidence.

Cut your costs in half by positioning your business to make use of on-demand testing. Scale testing operations quickly as your circumstances and requirements shift. Join a dynamic and flexible testing party, the likes of would even impress Jay Gatsby.
