June 26, 2014 (Newswire) - After successful entry into the global crowdsourced app testing market with their on-demand crowdtesting platform passbrains, Swiss software quality specialist PASS Group established their new subsidiary passbrains GmbH in Hamburg, Germany, to further strengthen their northern European and German presence. The new company will be managed by Johannes Widmann, a crowdtesting pioneer and consultant with passbrains since early 2012. "In addition to our sales offices in Frankfurt and Berlin, our new Hamburg delivery center is a key strategic location for PASS Group's further growth of our software quality services business in general and specifically for our app testing solutions" says Dieter Speidel, CEO PASS Group. "Like our delivery centers in Switzerland, India and the U.S., passbrains Germany will run customer projects using our leading-edge cloud based platform technology for managing tester communities and test projects. We are now actively expanding our german tester community and our internal sales and delivery team" adds Johannes Widmann, distinguished expert in the crowdtesting scene.
Headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, PASS Group runs strategically located development and delivery centers in Europe, India and the U.S. With over 20 years of experience in software and system testing industry, PASS offers optimized on-demand testing solutions through a combination of onsite, off-shore and crowdsourced delivery models.
"What specifically sets us apart from other crowdsourced testing firms is that our delivery model ensures tester contribution and delivery at highest quality levels. For enterprise customers, delivery quality is essential, while the quantity of testers a provider may claim to have access to doesn't have much relevance for the client. In today's crowdsourcing world, vendors can't own their community, especially as crowdtesters usually work with multiple crowdtesting service vendors simultaneously. Next to testing mainstream consumer apps, we'll therefore continue developing specific domain verticals using highly skilled testers owning specific expertise in different domains such as for example Mobile Health and Telecom" adds Speidel.
In addition to their managed services delivery, PASS Group offers enterprise clients to use the passbrains platform in self-service mode or to license a white labeled version of the crowdtesting platform, allowing to run test projects using their internal staff exclusively or in combination with passbrains' tester community.
"In the enterprise world we see growing demand for a crowdtesting platform solution as we offer with passbrains enterprise. Companies employing hundreds or thousands of software testers are struggling with the identification and management of specific skills and unutilized capacities throughout the enterprise. Our platform solution is unique in this aspect, as it allows our customers to quickly identify and engage the best available resources throughout their global organization, plus they can access the passbrains tester community for additional resources when needed".
