Based on the success of uTest Express in mobile app testing for early-stage startups, uTest is expanding its Express services with the launch of uTest Express for websites - giving startups an affordable way to professionally test their Web apps.


uTest Express is designed to help emerging startups - even those without any formal quality assurance experience or resources - ensure that their Web apps function as designed across the ever-expanding matrix of operating systems, browsers, plug-ins and third-party applications.


Although uTest has always provided Web testing services for enterprises such as Microsoft, AOL and Intuit, this is the first time its Web app testing services have been packaged and priced for early-stage startups. This expansion also makes uTest Express valuable to a much wider audience since there are approximately 300,000 mobile apps in existence, but nearly every startup has a website or Web app. In fact, the market for mobile commerce is predicted to reach $119 billion by 2015, but that is still only eight percent of the total ecommerce market potential, according to ABI Research.


"The interest in uTest Express for mobile apps since our launch two months ago has been tremendous," says Matt Johnston, uTest CMO. "The numerous requests from Express visitors and customers confirmed our belief that there is a sizable unmet need among early-stage startups for cost-effective, high-quality professional Web app testing and real-world feedback on their sites."


uTest Express makes it easy for early-stage startups to purchase professional testing services at a price that meets their limited budgets. At the conclusion of each Express testing project, customers receive a list of well-documented bugs, including screenshots and videos with steps to reproduce them. Customers also receive expert feedback from the testers about the Web application.
