Pioneers in Crowdtesting

Applause invented the crowdtesting category in 2007, and we have been the driving force in testing and digital quality innovation ever since. We've helped thousands of brands deliver quality digital assets and experiences to their customers on a global scale.

What Is Crowdtesting?

Deliver Quality Digital Assets & Experiences, With the Speed, Scale and Flexibility of Crowdtesting

Crowdtesting, or crowdsourced testing, is the fastest and most flexible way to ensure you release high-quality software quickly and with confidence. Crowdtesting leverages skilled testing teams sourced from a globally dispersed community of independent digital experts, who are highly skilled and ready to stand up testing at a moment’s notice, in any language, on any device and operating system.

These testers serve as proxies for your own customers – delivering detailed, aggregated and authentic real-world feedback on the quality, user experience and functionality of your digital assets. They live, work and play in the industries and real-world scenarios that you need to test in to ensure that you deliver delightful digital experiences to your end users, the first time and every time.

We engage crowdsourced testing teams matched to your exact needs in terms of demographic, location, industry, language, device/OS combination and testing expertise. This allows you to replicate real-world scenarios and test with digital experts that match your target customers. Crowdsourced testers are skilled in the full suite of testing solutions – from manual exploratory testing to accessibility and payments testing.

The distributed, remote and on-demand nature of crowdtesting gives you unparalleled scalability and time-to-results when compared to traditional testing methods. It also delivers unmatched and nearly limitless coverage across testing scenarios. Since testers are available on demand and around the globe, you can scale testing up or down to meet the needs of your internal teams and end users. That’s why Applause is a testing best practice for digital innovators, and an integral part of every modern SDLC.
