What is Crowd Testing?
Crowd testing, or crowdsource testing, is a new approach to QA that combines manual efforts with technology. It is instrumental in eliminating issues that come with conventional testing, such as lack of transparency, inadequate testing experience, and complex or unclear testing requirements.
Crowd testing happens outside the vicinity of your organization and includes a set of temporary, individual testers to execute the testing process. It is an effective method of on-demand testers that works faster than in-house testers. That’s because they only have certain requirements to monitor. Additionally, crowdsource testing is an excellent opportunity to test products on real devices by real users to focus on customer experience.

Become one now!
With a collective brainstorming of AI-driven test automation platform and a big enough pool of potential testers and their exploratory testing skills in highly varied areas, we can ensure an unparalleled customer experience.
You’ll never bottleneck on programming, a lack of enough devices or resources to test with, as Testsigma is a scriptless automation tool and uses simple English to automate the tests and lets you scale up or down on the resources as and when you need them.
By making sure a diverse group of testers inspect a shared project, enterprises can be confident that their software has been thoroughly evaluated by people who were not a part of creating it like end users. This means the testers do not turn a blind eye like testers from within the company would.
Furthermore, Testsigma is flexible enough to add more testers to a big project so that you can work as a team with people of different skill sets and collectively share findings and insights.
Why Crowdsourced Test Automation?
Test Automation is a must today in the Agile/DevOps world and, there’s no denying that. It’s about time we accepted that Manual Testing isn’t enough and that it will eventually become a bottleneck in today’s testing. The article also discusses the challenges in manually testing an application and why there’s still a retreat in automation testing.
And when you decide to shift towards Automation, how do we start?
With so many technologies and programming languages, the manual tester may feel overwhelmed. You may need to get off to a good start by developing an understanding of the technologies that you need to put to use to test and need to start by learning programming and SQL skills for a good start.
Though scriptless automation testing tool like Testsigma would allow for a smooth transition from Manual Testing to Automation Testing, there is still a majority of the companies waiting to shift from manual to automation testing due to the complex test automation process and lack for expertise, that’s what we are trying to solve with Testsigma’s Integrated Test Automation Platform.
A few downsides with the legacy test automation approach are the initial ramp-up time and cost, scaling up or down of resources depending on dynamic business requirements to optimize the cost involved. That’s the purpose behind why crowdsourced testing exists today.
Crowdsourced testing is not a new idea. Companies like uTest, TestBird are examples. There are significant benefits of Crowdsourced testing, however, isn’t a viable solution for automating in Agile/DevOps and Continuous Delivery environments.
Downsides of Crowdsourced Testing Platforms
A few downsides of existing Crowdsourced testing platforms are:
- a lack of integrated platform to automate testing with shared resources for all the stakeholders – including SMEs, QAs, automation engineers in the product quality
- less or no automated regression testing and not supportive of Shift-Left testing
- usage of outdated tools, nonuniform reporting with not enough logs to back the findings
- and a lack of enough feedback on your work and, on your progress.
This limits Crowdsourced testing to mere functionality testing which is not sufficient to meet the continuous delivery demands of today. Retrospecting Crowdsourced testing and its many benefits, Testsigma’s Crowd Test Automation Platform is incorporated with a test automation ecosystem to address the test automation requirements for companies.
Testsigma is offering a platform that lets one shift from Crowdsourced testing to Crowd Test Automation with full benefits of crowdsourced testing and test automation.
The result, a fully functional Crowdsourced Smart Test Automation Platform.

Crowdsourced vs Outsourced Testing—What’s the Difference?
Crowdsourcing refers to individual testers from around the globe checking your product for consistency and discrepancies. They are not experienced QAs that know the ins and outs of the product. They simply mimic the user behavior to see if the application is stable for a user-run environment and ready for release.
On the other hand, outsourced means that a third party is performing all the testing processes for you. It is not made up of random individuals sitting around the globe but consists of professionals that have knowledge about the product and the testing practice.
Some other differences between crowdsourced vs outsourced testing are:
- The former is a test managed by individuals, while the latter is more coordinated
- Crowdsourcing is an around-the-clock testing process, and outsourcing is limited to one timezone
- With crowd testing, your data might have confidentiality issues. But with outsourcing, your data is considered safe with the professional testers.
What is the Process of Crowdsourced Testing?
At its basic, crowdsource testing consists of 5 steps that you must follow. These stages outline the project’s goal, help you set a budget, and let you choose if you wish to work with these testers directly or indirectly.
- The Preparation Phase: Define your business needs, and project goals, decide on a budget, design test cases, and source the necessary skills.
- The Initiation Phase: Start with defining the test cases, setting up the production environment, and hiring crowd testers.
- The Execution Phase: Begin with the testing process across multiple devices and have a team of supervisors to assist and check up on the process frequently.
- The Evaluation Phase: Verify the results and prepare for delivering the final product along with process testers’ payment.
- The Last Phase: Close the test cycle for this project and showcase the full project/product with all the proper functionalities to the user or your clients.
