uTest Launches Version 4.0 of Its Software Testing Platform

New Features Such as Bug Fix Verification and Test Case Support Help Companies Get New Web and Mobile Apps to Market Faster

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Jul 6, 2011) - uTest, the world's largest software testing marketplace, is launching Version 4.0 of its software testing platform -- the company's most significant update in more than a year. In addition to an improved user interface, this version incorporates two major features designed to provide tighter integration between the testing community and our customers' engineering teams: Bug Fix Verification and Test Case Support.

"As an increasing number of major retailers, media brands and agencies turn to uTest and our community of 40,000 testers, it's critical that we fit seamlessly into their in-house QA processes and tools," said uTest CEO, Doron Reuveni. "Our customers rely on uTest to increase their testing coverage, reduce QA overhead and get new versions of their web and mobile apps to market. This latest version of our platform was specifically designed with those goals in mind."

About Bug Fix Verification
One of the most compelling new features is Bug Fix Verification. Since uTest's community tests apps under real-world conditions -- working on real devices, carriers, browsers, and operating systems -- it can be difficult for customers to validate that a bug fix has addressed the problem. Now, with the single click of a button, companies can activate Bug Fix Verification for any defects discovered, which automatically sends a request to uTest's community to attempt to reproduce the functional bugs on a new version of the application, and report back whether the defects have been successfully eliminated.

About Test Case Support
Depending on the number of apps a company has in development at any given time, it may have hundreds or even thousands of test cases to manage. This makes tracking and consolidating the results of test case execution a highly time-consuming task. With uTest's new Test Case Support feature, customers can see a real-time summary of their testing coverage and quickly identify where problems exist.

For instance, users can instantaneously view a top-line report of a single test case performed across different environments -- such as platform, device, browser or country -- and see which steps of which test cases have passed or failed. Moreover, since companies have the ability to run the exact same test case simultaneously with multiple testers, uTest customers can isolate at exactly which step the problem occurred. By giving customers the means to access more granular information without adding overhead, Test Case Support provides a tighter level of control to launch apps faster and with greater confidence.
