With close to 500 attendees, including representatives from government, industry, education and NGOs, the Digital Malaysia National Crowdsourcing Conference took place in Kuala Lumpur in May, highlighting the benefits of crowdsourcing and how the Malaysian government harnesses its power to increase productivity, efficiency, savings and growth.

Just one month later, the Malaysian eRezeki program was officially launched by the Malaysian Prime Minister. eRezeki is a governmentally sponsored initiative aiming at providing additional earnings to low-income groups through crowdsourced digital work. At the same time, following international demand for crowdsourced app testing capacities, PASS Group launched their onboarding process for Malaysian crowdtesters on the passbrains platform and first projects have been successfully completed, delivering attractive side-income opportunities to participating Malaysian digital workers!

Crowdsourcing Week Summit Geneva brought crowdsourcing and the crowd economy to center stage in Switzerland to discuss how crowdsourcing is shaping industries and transforming organizations today.  PASS Group CEO Dieter Speidel spoke about Customer Crowds and how to mobilize and engage thousands of customers for evaluating and testing digital products, turning everyone into a product tester.

Passbrains, the leading provider of platform solutions and services for crowdsourced testing, enables enterprises to engage their customer base in testing campaigns for new products and product updates. Recent successes in strategic collaborations with large enterprises such as upc cablecom in Switzerland impressively demonstrate the power of passbrains’ platform technology and their mature crowdtesting processes.

passbrainscycle

As an example, early 2014, passbrains built a dedicated ‘private’ community of 2’000 Swiss customers of upc cablecom within a duration of a few weeks only, and ran numerous test projects for upc cablecom’s hardware and software products, engaging testers from this community – and the number of community members has already grown up to 4’000 as of today. “The results of our enterprise crowdtesting projects in which we engage our client’s end-users are more than impressive” says Dieter Speidel, CEO of PASS Group and passbrains Switzerland. “We have proven to be able to selectively engage up to 500 testers from our community and to prepare test campaign within a few days only. Our test campaigns cover functional, compatibility, performance and user experience tests. During such test cycles, testers deliver most valuable bug reports, user experience reports, product ratings and improvement suggestions. Passbrains crowdtesting enables enterprises to collect user feedback and improve usability and product quality before market introduction while significantly reducing costs of product validation” Speidel highlights.

 

“Our user base shows very strong interest and motivation to participate and contribute in testing our products before they are actually launched for market introduction” says Ivo De Blasi, director business deployment at upc cablecom. “Customer-Crowdtesting has become an important tool as part of our product localisation and validation strategy” De Blasi points out.

 

“We experience growing demand for private tester communities with subscribers / end customers of enterprises in different industries such as Telecom, Financial Services, Digital Media & Entertainment as well as Wearables & Mobile Health. The passbrains platform technology supports specific customer/subscriber profile data and seamlessly integrates with our clients’ CRM systems. Our ability to build and manage private tester communities for enterprises plus delivering managed testing and digital assurance services on-demand clearly differentiates passbrains in this growing market segment” concludes Dieter Speidel.

(Zürich, 23.12.2014) After successful completion of a twelve months pilot phase, upc cablecom launches their crowdtesting program, involving their customers in testing upc cablecom’s digital TV, Internet,telephony and mobile products. The program has been started in Switzerland and will be further expanded throughout their European markets. upc cablecom had chosen passbrains, the leading crowdtesting platform and services provider, to build and manage their customer communities and for managing testing projects end-to-end. passbrains’ enterprise crowdtesting solution enables corporations in many different industries to implement and run crowdtesting initiatives using the global passbrains tester community and enterprises’ private communities.
 
“Building customer communities for product testing has become one of our specialties. Within less than a month private communities of thousands of customers can be populated and fully profiled on our platform” says Dieter Speidel, CEO of passbrains AG and PASS Group. “In most cases our enterprise-clients are looking for functional, performance and user experience testing campaigns to validate their new products under real world conditions, before releasing the products for market introduction. We also run post-launch product performance monitoring campaigns to identify specific issues which could be region-specific or related to customers’ system configuration and environment. Depending on the goals of the individual campaign, we select testers based on demographic, configuration and environment related criteria, and manage their engagement throughout the entire project, from test planning to delivery of final test reports. Individual test cycles are run with any number of testers between 50 and several thousands”.
 
upc cablecom is one of the first companies in Switzerland who recognized the strong benefits of engaging their customers in community-based testing. Ivo Hoevel, Senior Vice President and Marketing and Products Officer: “The collaboration with passbrains enables us to boost the development of our products and services using the valuable contribution provided by our customers through this crowdtesting program”. upc cablecom officially launched their crowdtesting initiative during their first customer crowdtesting event on 10.12.2014 in their new premises in Wallisellen, Switzerland, where customers had the chance to exchange their experience from the first crowdtesting projects and to discuss their questions and suggestions with upc cablecom product managers and representants of the passbrains team.

A busy year at passbrains is coming to an end and with only few days until Christmas, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our powerful community for all their efforts, inputs and activities in 2014!

As we all know how hard it is to turn into action any New Year’s resolution in hazy January, we decided to begin in December already, by implementing the first of two major platform updates that are dedicated to our testers. Thus we are not only improving testers’ user experience, but we also go ahead on our common path to grow with our community.

 

Part One – Pending Actions

Part one of the updates is going live on Thursday, December 11th and will hold a re-strucured tester dashboard to see all pending actions at a glance.

 

 

 

As of now, all tester actions split up by projects are shown with a due date and due earnings for completing a task. Testers will also be informed about surveys, Assigned Test Cases and Tickets that need attention. Furthermore, they will be notified about due tasks 48 hours in advance. Testers may activate or deactivate these notifications.

 

Part Two – Earn with us

The second update is going live in January 2015 and includes an improvement of our payout schemes. Active testers doing a great job will have the opportunity to earn even more, as we are introducing a tiered payout based on Career Level. Thus, depending on how much Career Credit Points a tester holds, possible earnings will be higher:

  • From 200 CCP: +5% on ALL payouts
  • From 500 CCP: +10% on ALL payouts
  • From 800 CCP: +15% on ALL payouts

Furthermore, the CCP system itself will be improved. Thus, testers may earn CCPs for excellent test case executions or survey editings. In the course of this improvement, we’ll also add a new tester panel called „My Earnings“, where testers have an overview of all their earnings at any time.

I was on the judges’ panel for STWC World Cup Asia Rounds, as a part of which, I had the privilege to review test reports of several teams. While there were few quality test reports, others were appalling. Some teams simply delivered a collection of copied bug reports, some talked about different tasks testers performed and few others contained information that was useless to stakeholders and decision-makers. Hence, the need for this article.

 

What is a Test Report?

A Test Report conveys a story – about the product, about its quality, about the testing requirements and how well / or to what extent testing has been performed. A Test Report is a window of information for stakeholders about how much testing was done and what are the key risks associated with the product in order to make a release or no release decision. So, it is very critical for testers to generate clear, concise and quality test reports. In this article, I would like to highlight important components of a test report and what sets a test report apart from the run-of-the-mill reports I described in the beginning.

Organizations are now waking up from the high-maintenance automation craze and counting on cloud to provide alternative lucrative solutions that are effective enough to solve all their problems. Though crowdsource testing answers all their prayers, it hasn’t reached possible utilization yet since the organizations are unable to attain its utmost value due to the lack of professionally managed project attention. Delivering extraordinary end-to-end crowdsource testing services with sheer professionalism that was gained over quarter century of experience is PASS Technologies, a leading on-demand QA testing services company. The Switzerland headquartered company founded in 1989 changed its strategy from being a boutique service provider to global player with extended portfolio including crowdsource testing.

Crowdsourcing and software testing are often mentioned as a good fit, and this is for a good reason — a company releasing an app needs to ensure that the app runs glitch-free on an ever-increasing list of devices and operating systems, and that it seamlessly operates across geographies.

Great designs transform the way we live and we all act as designers in our own simple ways. When we rearrange objects on our desks, the furniture in our living rooms, and the things we keep in our cars, we are designing. Through our designs, we transform houses into homes, spaces into places and things into belongings. While we may not have any control over the design of the many objects we purchase, we do control what we choose to purchase.

 

Faulty Designs

 

A year ago, at least 40 people were killed in a tragic accident involving a private Volvo bus on the Bangalore-Hyderabad National Highway. The incident happened when the bus was reportedly trying to overtake a vehicle at high speed and hit a culvert and caught fire. Before the passengers could realize what had happened, they were charred to death. Investigations revealed that this accident was a result of poor design and absence of safety measures in the bus.

eCommerce industry sector is burgeoning in India with new players starting shop every now and then. But what is it that sets Flipkart, India’s largest online retailer, apart? Flipkart identified 2 key problems in the eCommerce world – delayed delivery and poor customer service. They fixed these problems and made online shopping a delightful and memorable experience for their customers. There is no surprise why Flipkart is being touted as a competitor of Amazon.

Applying this analogy to the testing world, while testing a product, more often than not, testers are focused on which flow the user executes or how the user interface looks. What goes missing is the level of attention and detail to support processes like call verifications, email communication, online chat, service request processes and other services. Does a user receive a welcome email upon joining? Does he get a verification call from the company? Do they call the user if his need is not addressed beyond a certain time? How is a complaint from a user handled? This describes the supportability experience of the product.

Jinsop Lee, an industrial designer, believed that great design appeals to all five senses. He called this, the Five Senses Theory. Jinsop also gave a Ted talk on this topic a short while ago. According to him, one can grade any experience on all five senses. For e.g, you can grade eating noodles on sight, smell, touch, taste and sound. Similarly, you can grade your biking experience. Jinsop graded himself on a bunch of adventure experiences like bungee jumping, playing games on two different consoles and others. The five senses graph for Jinsop’s experience on Nintendo Wii against older gaming consoles is displayed below. This clearly tells which gaming console he preferred.

With Google, Apple and Microsoft practically giving away their development tools for free, there is a growing developer base creating mobile Apps and responsive web sites for Android, iOS and Windows platforms. But, it’s easy to underestimate the costs of building and monetizing an App successfully. One way to save costs is to consider crowd testing. Some benefits of crowd testing are:

 
1. Maximum value and focus
The Law of Comparative Advantage states that maximum value is derived if each party focuses on its core competence. Developers should focus on building products and leave software testing to testing experts to derive maximum value.
 
2. Improved cash flow
Crowd testing helps with better cash flow management by translating fixed costs (employee salary, allowance, etc.) into a scalable, variable costs that you incur only upon usage. As a startup, cost savings are of paramount importance and a good cost strategy signals sound financial planning. The crowd testing pay-per-bug pricing model means that you pay only for unique bugs that testers discover – which is better for cash flow compared to an in house team. Most crowd testing companies offer pay-per-bug pricing model as part of their exploratory testing services. This means, you pay only for unique bugs that testers discover. Hence, it is easy to infer that pay-as-you-go model helps better manage cash flows than incurring fixed overhead with an in house testing team that delivers basically the same results.

The increasing adoption and use of mobile technologies is disrupting the healthcare industry through innovative ways, channels and tools for cost-effective healthcare delivery, even in the remotest of places. A quick search for “health” on Apple iTunes store presents over 43,000 apps, demonstrating a high demand for such applications.

 

According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), mobile healthcare apps were downloaded an estimated 660 million times as of June 2013. By 2015, 500 million smartphone users worldwide are expected to regularly use some healthcare application; by 2018, industry experts estimate this figure to grow to 1.7 billion mobile users, who will use mobile healthcare applications on a fairly regularly basis by general consumers, patients, doctors and other healthcare professionals.
