SpotQA launches new product and secures $3.25m funding
Automated software testing company, SpotQA, today launched its flagship product, Virtuoso, and announced its $3.25 million funding round.
The London-based start-up’s new product, Virtuoso, tests web and mobile web apps to identify bugs, inconsistencies and errors using machine learning (ML) and robotic process automation (RPA) to increase the speed of testing by up to 25X.
The simultaneous funding round was led by new London firm, Crane Venture Partners, followed by Forward Ventures, Downing Ventures and Acequia Capital.
“This product will change the way modern software delivery teams test across the entire software development life cycle (SDLC),” says co-founder and CEO, Adil Mohammed. “Traditional automated testing cannot keep up with customers’ demand for high quality experiences across platforms 24/7.”
Described as the first ‘intelligent quality assistance platform’, the software is designed to be used by all skill-types, claiming to take a non-technical person less time to test web and mobile apps than an experience engineer.
Spot QA investor, Crane Venture Partners, look “to revolutionise large addressable markets with product and technology at its core”. With its most recent investment, the group think the start-up’s technology is a worthwhile venture, designed “to upscale what skilled human software testers can achieve [in] a multi-billion dollar market which has long been neglected”.
