A US-based startup Smart Software Testing Solutions Inc. (SSTS) has picked up a stake in Crowd4Test.com by investing undisclosed amount in the Bengaluru based firm. After all the procedures of the deal are completed, SSTS’s co-founder and director Avinash Tiwari will join Crowd4Test’s board of directors team.
Tiwari said in a statement that this investment will be useful for SSTS in building all-in-one platform for mobile app and IoT app testing. The company aims to incorporate ‘pCloudy’ – one of its Saas product – and its Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered mobile app testing platform with Crowd4Test.com. He further added that through this product integration his company will be well placed to serve comprehensive mobile testing needs of its diverse customers.
Both startups – Crowd4Test and SSTS – were founded in 2015. Crowd4Test was founded by Ranganadh Damera with an aim to build a robust community of online software testers that would provide professional testing services to its customers. The company claims to have over 100 customers and more than 2,000 software testers on its platform.
SSTS, on other hand, was founded by Tiwari along with its two partners Pankaj Goel and Lalit Jain. The company offers testing services through two automated testing products – OpKey & pCloudy. The company claims that both these products collectively serve nearly 200 customers, including big giants like Accenture, Honeywell, and Reliance Jio.
SSTS managed to raise $1 million as part of pre-Series A funding last year from YourNest Angel Fund and other angel investors.
