Hyderabad, February 01, 2016 – Cambridge Innovations (CI), launched by Cambridge Technology (NSE: CT; BSE: 532801), a technology services leader focused on the convergence of big data and cloud, today announced an investment in MyCrowd, the world’s most advanced on-demand crowd testing platform.
MyCrowd enables marketing and development teams to improve product quality through crowdsourced testing. Addressing the complex challenge of testing across browsers and devices, MyCrowd has built a community of global testers that gives customers the ability to run QA tests quickly and on-demand. Founded in 2014, the platform already has more than 34,000 registered crowd testers from 200 countries and has reported over 12,000 bugs.
CI will work together with MyCrowd to accelerate success and build an integrated ecosystem; develop and enhance the core product and expand the tester community.
Commenting on the Cambridge Innovations investment, Matthew Cordasco, CEO of MyCrowd said, “This investment fuels our vision for delivering easy to deploy end-to-end testing solutions powered by a global community of resources. Partnering with CI enables us to accelerate our product vision and expand our comprehensive service offering sooner, to better support the needs of global SMB and enterprise customers through a powerful elastic workforce and self-service model.”
Following a string of recent investments that include RoadZen, Causemo, Authess, Anthill Ventures and PhotoKharma, the MyCrowd investment amplifies Cambridge Innovation’s focus of supporting early stage entrepreneurs with investment and accelerating growth by minimizing technology risk.
