Autify, a no-code AI-powered software testing automation platform, revealed on 6th October 2021 that it has raised $10 million in Series A funding. This funding will be used to promote new product development, the launch of native app for mobile testing, and worldwide expansion. This funding brings Autify’s total raised to $12.2 million.
The Series A was led by World Innovation Lab (WiL), with participation from new investors Uncorrelated Ventures and individual investor Jonathan Siegel. Prevailing investors Salesforce Ventures, Tably, and Archetype Ventures, also joined in the round.
Without any programming or automation expertise, anyone can quickly build, execute, and automate software test scenarios using Autify. It is already used by a variety of B2C and B2B SaaS firms in Japan and throughout the globe, including Q4, Unity, DeNA, and many others. With the launch on Mobile, the firm now delivers the amplest choice of alternatives per application and user type.
“With 75% of companies globally still manually performing software development tests, Autify is hoping to disrupt the $1.3 trillion global testing market by providing a no-code application for automated testing,” said Ryo Chikazawa, Autify Co-founder & CEO.
The firm’s three-pronged approach to testing automation – no-code, AI-powered, and customer success – enables the company to address issues that have plagued the testing industry for far too long, such as manpower scarcity, high maintenance costs, and technical complexity. Moreover, it can fix these difficulties without sacrificing product quality at any point during the development process.
“Even though Autify started in Japan, the vision for their no-code solution is to advance the automation of software testing not only in Japan but also globally. Japanese startups are just beginning to eye the global market and Autify is a flag-bearer of this trend. This is one of the reasons why we are particularly excited about the company,” said Masaya Kubota, Partner at WiL.
Autify intends to use the new funding to expand globally and support new product development, including the launch on Mobile, a native app testing platform. Autify for Mobile is set to boost overall QA efficiency by allowing users to manage both online and mobile testing from the same platform.
