The Liberty Global Customer Success Story

Since several years already, Liberty Global companies in Switzerland, Austria and Germany get their apps, digital devices and services tested through passbrains' solutions and services. Here's our latest update on this awesome customer success story:




Already in 2014 upc Switzerland (a Liberty Global subsidiary) launched their crowdtesting program with passbrains, engaging upc customers in testing upc digital TV, Internet, telephony and mobile products. Within a few weeks only, passbrains onboarded several thousands of upc customers through a customized portal on the passbrains platform and started functional tests and large-scale user experience studies for upc apps and devices.

Upc’s crowdtesting program showed great success - customers loved to get involved in testing new products and major updates, and their feedback and test results served greatly for assuring quality and customer satisfaction. Since the introduction, upc crowdtesters, managed as a private online community for the company, use the passbrains platform on a daily basis for reporting issues and improvement suggestions, discussing with other upc crowdtesters in project forums, and providing UX feedback and ratings through passbrains’ integrated online survey system.

Other than running user acceptance tests ahead of the market launch, upc recently started using passbrains’ solution also for continuous crowdtesting of intermediate releases of their apps.

In the meantime, due to the convincing results of upc Switzerland’s crowdtesting program, Liberty Global companies in other countries like Austria and Germany decided to work with passbrains as well.

“Engaging customers for testing new products and services helps companies to understand how their products perform in the field and if their services will meet customers’ expectations. The passbrains solution strongly contributes to Liberty Global companies’ success with their digital products and services, we are looking to further expand the implementation of passbrains for more Liberty Global companies in other countries.” says Dieter Speidel, CEO of passbrains. 

Fabrizio Campanale, Director Entertainment and Connectivity: “Working with passbrains enabled us to boost the success of our products and services using the valuable contribution provided by our customers through passbrains' digital experience & testing solutions and services.”.
