Managed crowd testing is a type of software testing where the testing tasks are assigned to different software testers through an online platform. It is a rapidly growing trend in the field of software testing which makes use of the inherent efficiency of crowdsourcing and the cloud platform to provide developers with many benefits.
The crowd testers at Outsource2india have delivered projects to leading companies across the globe. Our team of expert software testers works with you to thoroughly understand your requirements, designs a test plan, and then guides the crowd testers to test your software application in a manner that suits your detailed requirements.
Our Managed Crowdsourced Testing Services
Managed crowd testing is very efficient and improves the coverage with respect to device localization, fragmentation, and UX. It also helps the testing activity to remain ahead of schedule. With managed crowd testing, real devices are used on real networks. Managed crowd testing has now become widely used by large and small companies alike as it provides an affordable, wide-reaching testing option for anybody developing software products.
When you outsource your testing to the crowd, you get access to a large set of eyes with a fresh perspective that will report on your project. These fresh eyes bring fresh insights, which is priceless. The fresh perspective means that the crowd testers may also make very useful usability suggestions that could be missed by your in-house team that has been looking at the same product for a very long time.
Crowd testing processes are intended to complement the existing testing procedures and not to replace them. By integrating managed crowd testing into our test processes, we have developed cost-effective methods to provide top-quality software testing. Some of the key services we offer include -

Benefits of Crowdsourced Testing
Crowdsourced testing services is one of the fastest emerging trends in the world of software testing. The major factor that is driving this massive growth is the number of benefits it offers. Outsource crowdsourced testing services and leverage the following benefits -
Access to Expert Resources
When the testing process is crowdsourced, one has access to a huge pool of resources with varying degrees of expertise in varying fields. Testing an application under different situations and environments as provided by crowd testing may be difficult to replicate during in-house software testing. You can enhance the quality of your software and begin selling in the market faster.
The client only has to pay for the reported bugs and the testing usually takes less amount of time which leads to a considerable reduction in costs as compared to hiring testers in-house.
Crowdsourced testers are not affected by the internal concerns of the company and hence their approach is completely unbiased towards the software testing process.
The pool of testers belongs to a wide range of audiences with differences in languages, cultures, locations, etc. Hence, the testing is bound to reap benefits by receiving feedback from such a diverse audience.
Lesser Time to Market
The number of software testers is usually very high and all of them are working on testing your application simultaneously, hence the entire process of testing is bound to be completed in a very quick time, thereby reducing the time to market.
Unlike other methods of software testing methods, crowdsourced testers are always available on short notices and allow the companies to get the test results within quick turnaround time.
Many IT projects usually require work to be done at short notice and require ad hoc testing. With crowd testing, the testing can be completed quickly. Crowdsourced testers are located across the globe in different time zones due to which they are available at all times of the day, which in turn is extremely beneficial during emergencies and strict deadlines.
When the application is tested by external crowdsourced testers, it is bound to encounter different hardware and software combinations than those you have in-house.
Crowd testing gives you access to a huge variety of testers that use many different devices and browsers. With crowd testing, you can also test in different locations and markets as well as in a variety of scenarios and languages.
Improved Testing Platforms
With crowd testing, you get access to high-performing and straightforward testing platforms that allow your software to be efficiently and quickly distributed to a crowd of testers. In this way, bugs and defects can be found in a much more efficient manner. The bugs and defects can also be rated from low to high severity, allowing your developers to work on the high priority ones first.
Managed crowd testing is sometimes referred to as "load testing" because it can also be used to test how the software behaves when it is accessed by multiple users simultaneously. The purpose of load testing is to ensure that the software functions smoothly under real-life load conditions. Load testing usually involves -
- Determining the maximum operating capacity of the software
- Determining whether the present infrastructure is enough to successfully run the software
- Determining whether the software performs well under peak user load
- Determining the number of concurrent users that the software can support and the amount of scalability that is present to allow more users to access the application.
Crowd testing is also sometimes referred to as "Beta Testing" since it is often used to gauge the level of satisfaction of the end-users, which in this case are the testers. Since the testers use the application for an extended period of time, their feedback on the design usability and functionality is invaluable and helps the software developer assess the usefulness of the product.
The reasons for beta testing varies. The marketing manager may focus on the end user's opinion on each feature, while a usability engineer may focus on product usage and ease of use.
