As you may have noticed, we have a new name: testcloud is now test IO. We’re excited about our new name, we think it reflects who we are and what we do better. We are still the same company and we’re still passionate about testing and excited about helping teams to make software better.

We’re also excited to announce that we’ve raised a new round of funding – Series A – from Turn/River Capital. It’s great to have them on board. You might know them as the folks behind BookFresh (now part of Square), Sucuri, and other great web and SaaS companies.

We’ll use this funding will to expand our team and grow in the U.S. There are a lot of companies out there making software, and we know that test IO can help them do it better.

Michael Downing, the CEO of Tout (one of our first U.S. customers and an online video platform for publishers, content creators and advertisers) had something to say for this occasion:

“Bringing software to market before competitors is critical to our bottom line, but finding bugs before our customers do is critical to our reputation. test IO’s crowd of testers continuously uncovers bugs and usability issues that would normally take much longer to identify internally, allowing us to launch applications on time and worry-free.”

It’s our goal to make everyone’s development process that much faster, more efficient, and worry-free. Today’s economy is driven by mobile apps and software, and developers companies from startups all the way to multinationals are looking for faster ways to test software. test IO provides a platform that developers can manage themselves, yet tap into the speed, quality and efficiency of crowdtesting.

That’s idea the at the foundation of our company – that the smartest and most efficient way to do QA is with continuous testing by humans – and it’s on its way to taking over the world. We’re looking forward to making it the normal way that all software is developed.
