Bring Your Own Testers

With Bring Your Own Testers, you can easily manage your internal testing teams and resources using our fully managed approach, well-honed processes and best-in-class technology infrastructure. BYOT lets you scale your testing for ultimate coverage and improved quality.

Leverage Internal Testing Teams Easily

Manage Internal Resources without the Headaches

Your own teams — including employees, friends, families and other internal stakeholders — can act as an important tester group, providing valuable feedback and insights about your products before they hit the market. However, managing this process — sometimes called ‘dogfooding’ — in an effective and scalable manner can be time consuming and potentially overwhelming. Engaging testers, administering testing, monitoring progress, answering questions and triaging results can collectively take up valuable cycles best spent elsewhere.

We can help. Bring Your Own Testers (BYOT) lets you leverage the power of internal testing programs without the project management and testing administration challenges that these projects typically come with. A feature of the Applause Platform, BYOT lets you take advantage of Applause’s proven processes and enterprise-class infrastructure with your own internal testing teams.

With Bring Your Own Testers, you get all the benefits of our fully managed service, but applied to your own group of pre-selected testers. You can also pair these internal teams with skilled testing teams invited from our global community of independent digital experts, with all testing results available in a single view. We manage the setup, test execution and optional delivery of triaged results using established processes. Issues can even be uploaded directly into your bug tracking system, helping your development teams maintain a CI/CD workflow.
