Ubertesters is the only company to offer a QA testing solution for the entire development cycle (from the early stages of engineering to the product launch). Also, the solution addresses both pains that digital development companies face: Resources (crowd of global testers on demand or offshore outsourcing of QA experts) and Tools (a robust platform to manage the entire mobile testing process and internal QA teams.
