Turning your customers into a de facto focus group is one thing, but turning to the crowd for more serious functionality and usability testing is quite another. That simple fact led eBay Europe to extend their software quality engineering program by adding crowd testing through passbrains.com.The Switzerland-based company is part of PASS Technologies, which operates a crowd of professional software testers from India, South America and Eastern Europe.

In its first nine months passbrains built up a base of around 10,000 users and over two thousand professional software testers spread around sixty countries. Now it's expanding to serve large enterprises, providing them a comprehensive and real time workforce management solution.
This is the first in a series of posts from our friends at passbrains, who will be walking us through a primer on crowdsourced testing. In this first part, we cover what exactly crowdsourced testing is, its advantages, and disadvantages.

UPDATED 24 OCTOBER 2013
PASS Group is further expanding its US base to meet continued success in the US market and increased demand for its passbrains platform, white-label solution for enterprises and ITO providers and managed service (crowdtesting in a box) offerings.
PASS Group, a leading provider of crowdsourced software testing services based in Europe, announced today that it is expanding its crowdtesting platform, passbrains, into the U.S. market in response to increased demand.
Watch this free, hour-long dive into the world of managed crowdtesting with help from passbrains, massolution, and Sourcing Interests Group. Also, don't forget to grab the white paper.
Crowdtesting leader passbrains recently engaged the research and advisory firm massolution to explore the possibilities of using a crowd to test software for large enterprises. We feature some findings from the report.
We like to keep tabs on what our sister research and advisory arm, massolution, is up to and this week CEO and Founder Carl Esposti is in Florida for the Sourcing Interests Group Global Sourcing Summit where he'll be talking crowdtesting with passbrains.
Crowdsourced software testing can be a great way for enterprises to reduce costs and simulate a program in a natural environment. The crowdtesting company Passbrains recently put out a white paper describing the process; we take a look at the report.
Crowdtesting — tapping into a large community to check for application or website bugs — is one of the most developed applications of crowdsourcing. Passbrains' Mithun Sridharan writes in to offer ten reasons for companies to make use of the crowd when developing customer-facing apps and sites.
There are a few critical criteria which need to be addressed to successfully integrate crowd testing concepts into corporate test strategies. Dieter Speidel of passbrains.com shares his thoughts in this guest post. (Sponsored Post)
This is the fourth in a series of posts walking us through a primer on crowdsourced testing. So far we've defined crowdsource testing, and looked at exactly how and why it works. In this final installment, we cover what to watch out for.
Before software ever reaches the hands of the users it's intended for, it gets tested for hours and hours in all sorts of environments and scenarios. But in the modern and increasingly decentralized enterprise, there's an almost infinite number of variables to test for that are often beyond the capabilities of an in-house testing team. Not surprisingly, this is where the crowd can play a critical role.
The crowd is not just about scalable “muscle”. It can also be used for very high value tasks. We share some of the fruits of a recent collaboration between massolution and PASS Technologies.
Software runs much of our daily lives, and if you're involved at all in creating these digital tools you know that there is a difference between good software and bad software. Often that difference comes down to testing, and to do testing right in a world full of an increasing number of "digital natives" connected to the cloud and demanding quick adaptability to their ever-changing needs, getting quality assurance right can require more than a good team, it requires a good crowd.

Software testing and quality assurance is becoming more important for enterprises, as individuals become increasingly connected to brands through apps and websites. We speak with Dieter Speidel, CEO of PASS Group, in order to better understand how his company is using the crowd to change the software testing landscape.
