BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - September 8, 2009) - uTest, the world's largest software testing marketplace, today announced that VP of Marketing & Community Matt Johnston will be a featured panelist at the TiE-Boston "Crowdsourcing: Opinions Managed" event in Waltham, MA on September 9th at 6:00pm.

Johnston is among a select group of executives chosen to discuss ways in which crowdsourcing models can be used to maximize a company's potential and manage costs. The crowdsourcing model has been adopted across many professional service industries, including marketing, graphic design, development and software testing.

Both startups and enterprises are leveraging uTest's global community of 19,000+ testers in 157 countries to test and launch world-class desktop, web and mobile apps. uTest's community of testing professionals is being used as a virtual testing team for startups or as an on-demand extension of the in-house QA departments of global software leaders.

"From P&G and HP's use of online communities for marketing and product R&D to companies who are crowdsourcing the testing of their web and mobile apps, these models enable companies to tap into the creativity of a diverse, global community of skilled professionals," said Matt Johnston, uTest VP of Marketing & Community. "By bringing in talented professionals on an on-demand basis, products are getting to market faster, with higher levels of quality and at a lower cost."

The "Crowdsourcing: Opinions Managed" event will be held at the The Emerging Enterprise Center, Foley Hoag, Suite Number 4000 at 1000 Winter Street (North Entrance) in Waltham, MA. You can register for the event here.
