The uTest Army: a crowdsourcing model for web & mobile application testing

One of the tenets of the open source software movement was that armies of coders and testers would fall-in and self organize driven purely by intrinsic rewards. This was driven by the notion that they could not only build it better, but that closed and restrictive practices were not in everyone’s best interest! So, it would seem that if you could harness the intrinsic motivations of this special breed of individual and further reward their performance, you might just have an unbeatable business model…..maybe uTest has discovered that model?


I was keen to find out what made uTest’s model different and, from the looks of its top name client list, what was underpinning its obvious success. I recently interviewed Matt Johnston, uTest’s Chief Marketing Officer, who shed some light on uTest’s interesting business model.

Samasource: Tapping the Private Crowd
Distributed Knowledge, Tools

Crowdsourcing.org recently spoke with Leila Janah, CEO of Samasource, about the company’s vision and business model. Samasource offers a “private crowd” as a model that fits between traditional outsourcing and crowdsourcing; the former providing advantages delivered through the organization of qualified labor and the latter delivering the greatest labor arbitrage advantage.  Samasource employs a dedicated workforce, managed off-shore by trained service partners that provide quality control in designated work centers. Janah describes Samasource as “a distributive work company that employs crowdsourcing principles.”

This list of one dozen focuses on the pinnacles that demonstrate crowdsourcing’s highest potential: For public good, scientific research and technological innovation.


Each of these events involves a seminal moment when crowdsourcing came into greater public awareness being driven from calls to action that resulted in ever increasing numbers of individuals working together in a manner that has raised our collective consciousness.

Can the Crowd Moderate Quality?
Crowdfunding, Distributed Knowledge

How do you organize ideas and control the quality of what is produced by crowdsourcing? These were the main questions from the audience that followed a discussion at Social Media Brazil, which took place last week in São Paulo. A first for the industry, the social media event provided a forum this year for a good debate about crowdsourcing and crowdfunding. According to Rafael Zatti, creator of Ideias.me, when consumers work together to produce a new product they effectively take part of the process. And in this process the community itself becomes the quality control. “When a project is well structured, the community is self-regulating.”
