99tests is a crowdsourcing platform which is basically a cloud-based online software. it is a platform to test software products by professionals.
99tests offers a range of categories of testing elements for mobile apps, Tablets and web apps which are Automation testing, Functional testing, Usability testing, Security testing, Load testing and Localization testing. 99tests tests software through different testing modules to check bugs in the software and delivers feedback in the shortest timeframe as the works been outsourced to high skilled engineers working under the wing of 99tests.
The Best advantage of using online platforms is it does not require any system requirements and operating platform is independent and does not need any installation. My experience in 99tests has been quite smooth so far and did not find any operating difficulties. Other than typical customer supports 99tests offers a 6-month testing planner which will suggest testing strategies. Their point of differentiation is they deliver testing results in the shortest time frame and testing starts within a day from submission. This software works on online mode.
What do I dislike?
One thing I did not like about 99tests is their pricing model and subscription plan. There are three types of subscription plan for 99tests and based on that the testing team and options will be provided.
- • Self-Serve Plan- For small team with no QA-$ 995/test cycle (for one time)
- • Subscription Plan- Moderately complex app with limited QA Team-$ 3500/month (for one year)
- • Enterprise Plan- For large corporations with complex apps- Duration is Customized
The pricing seemed very high in comparison to other competitors. 99sests stand on third on the high charging applications.
