Not sure if your new product idea is what your users want and need? Let the Crowd evaluate your prototype before development takes place.

Get feedback on design, usability, and UX at an early stage
Prevent operational blindness by involving your target group in development
Only invest time and money in a digital product your users will use
Leverage Prototype Evaluation to bring the quality of your digital products to the next level!
What is Prototype Evaluation?
A prototype is the first step on your way to a successful digital product. You’ve already spent a lot of time and money on your idea, so you shouldn’t risk developing a product that doesn’t match your users needs or preferences, or that your users won’t understand. That’s why you should invest in usability testing and UX testing.
In a Prototype Evaluation, you get the chance to ask your target users for initial feedback on design, usability, and user experience. With the help of 65 demographic criteria, we find the right testers in our Crowd that consists of more than 400,000 users from all over the world.
During the testing process, the testers will check your prototype and make sure you don’t work further on a product with usability problems or that’s not suited to your users’ needs. Based on the feedback of your target users you can then adapt your first draft and move on with development.
The Challenge: what does your target group think?
Prototypes are the conceptual phase of a digital product. Uncertainty is a huge matter to contend with. Will the product be accepted by the target group? Does the concept match the user’s requirements? Is the design appealing? Are there better alternatives? Above all, it’s difficult to predict what your clients will think about your product. Operational blindness makes it nearly impossible to have an unbiased view of your software, with the risk of missing important details and developing an unsuccessful product.
The Solution: constructive feedback prior to the development stage
A crowd-based evaluation of your prototype helps avoid the risk of making a bad investment. The tester group, which is selected according to the demographic criteria of your target group, examines prototypes on their own devices for user-friendliness and provides constructive feedback. This is how the end users reveal whether a website or app’s design or concept has the potential to be successful. Based on the results gathered, recommendations that enhance your digital product can be integrated into the development process. By using the Crowd at such an early stage, you can start off on the right foot and have a significant advantage over your competitors.
Better Webshop with Beter Bed
Together with Testbirds, the company worked on a Prototype Evaluation where the menu structure of their prototype was compared to the existing website structure. “The ability to customise and the personal relationship are important factors in Beter Bed’s choice of Testbirds as a testing partner.”

Once purchased, you can invest in over 20 different crowdtesting solutions across a variety of service levels, such as purely using our platform to a fully managed testing process with a dedicated, expert project manager.
