In Beta testing with hundreds of users, bugs were thus found in an astounding 89% of all applications tested. This disruptive technology could change the paradigm of quality assurance for web developers, slashing their testing time and cost by a factor of 5 to 10 (estimated by BugBuster). The young company plans to complete its Beta testing in November. Afterwards BugBuster will immediately start delivering its service in a SaaS (Software as a Service) model. The Series A financing will support this activity as well as the buildup of BugBuster’s go-to-market strategy with direct sales and partners, and further development. The Series B round is already foreseen for mid-2014.
BugBuster was founded in 2011 by Olivier Crameri (CEO), Renault John Lecoultre (CTO) and Professor Willy Zwaenepoel (Chief Scientist) in Lausanne. It is a spinoff of the Operating Systems Laboratory at the university EPFL.
