Release Faster, With Confidence
We help brands do it every day. How? By testing with real people in the real world. As crowdtesting pioneers, we connect the world’s greatest enterprises with the world’s largest testing community. So brands can build better, release with confidence and deliver digital experiences customers love.
A Release Partner With an Unparalleled Approach to Digital Quality
It's a bold statement that we proudly own
Why are we so different? Our enterprise-grade platform, our global uTest community, our shared values. Applause’s disruptive approach to testing and quality creates unparalleled scale and flexibility for our customers. How? First, we’ve built the world’s largest testing community. Over 1.7M digital experts that can match any testing demographic, configuration or experience required. This global community works hand-in-hand with the Applause team, delivering meaningful, actionable business insight to our customers daily. Unlike traditional testing companies and models (including lab-based and offshoring), we help development teams build and release better software with speed, scale and flexibility.
Supported by the broad resources of Vista Equity Partners, our vision is to be the release partner for all aspects of digital quality.
