BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 21, 2012) - uTest, the leading provider of in-the-wild software testing services, has been recognized as the 16th fastest growing private company in the United States -- and the 2nd among all IT service companies -- on the 2012 Inc. 500 list. The annual list, published by Inc. Magazine, ranks the top 500 companies according to revenue growth over a three-year period. The complete list appears in Inc.'s September, 2012 issue.
Since 2008, uTest has raised $37MM in funding and achieved astounding three-year growth of 8,284%. The company recently announced that the mobile app testing portion of its business increased by 5X over the last 12 months.
"Making Inc.'s list of America's fastest growing companies is a real honor," said uTest CEO, Doron Reuveni. "This is a validation of our vision and execution, but more importantly, it demonstrates how rapidly in-the-wild testing is growing for web and mobile apps. Given the importance to companies that their apps work flawlessly in the hands of users, uTest is extremely well-positioned for continued growth."
Thousands of brands -- including Google, USA Today, Amazon, Virgin, Sony, Box and Trulia -- have already adopted uTest to meet the real-world testing needs of their web and mobile apps. With 60,000 professional testers in 190 countries, uTest enables companies to test their apps under real-world conditions across OS, browsers, carriers, devices, locations and other criteria.
uTest's inclusion on the Inc. 500 list comes just days after the company announced the acquisition of mobile app tools company Apphance in a seven-figure deal, and launched its new product for mobile app developers, uTest Apphance.
"The investments we've made in the past eighteen months have positioned us well within the burgeoning apps economy -- testing apps for smartphones, tablets, e-readers, gaming consoles and connected TVs," added uTest CMO, Matt Johnston. "And with uTest's range of real-world testing offerings, we're extremely optimistic about our near- and long-term future."
