What is the Applause Platform?

The Applause platform is a product management tool that enables all testing related tasks.




Launch and Manage Test Cycles

Define your products, create test cycles and securely upload builds to be tested by our tester community.




Triage Testing Results and Integrate Them into Your Workflows

Review and vet testing results submitted by the tester community. You can work with your Applause management team to get all approved results exported to your bug tracking system.




View Testing Results, Reports and Analytics

All testing results of your product like issue reports, test cases, test reviews and analytics on them are always available to you, detailed and aggregated.




Communicate with Your Applause Team

Chat with the people working for you to get more information, provide additional directions and get advice on fine tuning your testing strategy.




Manage Your Testing Team

Review your favorite testers and their achievements. Favorite testers are the testers you set as favorite when they contribute consistently and effectively to your projects.




Make Informed Decisions with the Applause Quality Score (AQS)

With AQS it is easy to see how your quality is trending over time and to determine which factors are impacting your release quality. Leveraging years of historical quality data along with your testing results, we create a customized quality score for each build your company releases. You can view analytics, identify trends and verify coverage to make informed decisions.
