uTest Adds Public Tester Profiles, Badges and New Dashboards

Crowdsourced Testing Leader Launches New Tools For a More Personal, Intuitive Testing Experience

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - November 18, 2010) - uTest, the world's largest software testing marketplace, today launched version 3.2 of its software testing platform to provide its customers and testers with a more personal and intuitive user experience. This latest version includes public tester profiles and badges, a new platform homepage with custom dashboards, and a new 'accept/decline a test cycle' feature.

Public Tester Profiles & Badges
With new public profiles, testers can display their memberships and exemplary uTest ratings (bronze, silver or gold badges) within the community. In order to ensure tester privacy, this feature is opt-in only. Testers can also easily add their uTest badges to their personal website, blog, resume or email signature.

"With the recent explosion of badges, for example on geolocation services like Foursquare, people are hooked on displaying their badges and trophy cases online. Now any tester can too," said Doron Reuveni, CEO of uTest. "Version 3.2 offers both our customers and testers a more personal and powerful user experience, further positioning uTest as the leader in functional, load and usability testing."

New Platform Homepage
Version 3.2 has a new platform homepage which provides a simpler and more intuitive experience, including new interactive dashboards. With this new homepage, customers can view their test cycles, bugs, alerts, and messages in one convenient location. Customers will also have long-term visibility into how their test cycles perform over time. In addition, testers will see a new tester-centric homepage which will give them visibility into how they rank within the community.

Accept/Decline a Test Project
Whether too busy one week or just not the right fit for a project, some testers receive invitations for test projects in which they cannot participate. Previously, testers did not have a way to indicate they could not join a test cycle. Today, testers can now accept or decline a test project conveniently right in their invitation email by clicking "accept" or "decline".

This enables uTest to plan testing coverage more precisely and gauge whether or not they need to invite more testers to complete a test project. This new feature makes it easier to assemble the right testing team with the necessary coverage requirements to meet customer needs.
