Crowdsourced testing is an emergent method of QA testing which leverages a dispersed, temporary workforce to test software applications quickly and effectively. While conventional methods of software testing are conducted within the organization, or via an outsourcing contractor or QA consultant, crowdsourced software tests are executed by multiple individual testers in different locations.
Using crowdsourced testing to achieve the mobile app testing coverage teams need that is both affordable and fast enough to leverage without slowing down deployment.
While it’s true that manual testing can be a bottleneck when it comes to fast-moving development, that doesn’t mean you should abandon it entirely.
Crowdsourced testing provides a more flexible, cost-effective means of increasing testing bandwidth and improving product quality for companies like ConsumerAffairs.
For many teams maintaining legacy code bases, testing processes can’t keep up with development cycles. Here’s how PerformanceCentre found a solution to their regression testing roadblock by leveraging crowdtesting.
