Hundreds of companies -- from garage start-ups to Fortune 500 software giants -- have signed up with the uTest marketplace. Customers report higher application quality, faster time to market and dramatically reduced testing costs.
"With the expansive growth of web apps and mobile apps, time-to-market and application quality are mission critical for software companies," said Matt Johnston, uTest's VP of Marketing. "uTest enables our customers to compete more effectively by meeting their software testing needs, and doing it at a fraction of the cost of the alternatives. We are excited to be recognized by MITX in our first year of operations."
