Planning service Yes
How the planning service works Planit provide a vetted crowd sourced solution for web based or mobile testing requirements. It is a fixed price service with predefined objectives.

Objectives can, for example, include testing a Mobile app for usability for a day and reporting any bugs or usability issues.

This service would not normally mean any Planit Crowd testers needing access to a client site, rather they would connect remotely over the web or via a mobile device.

Our approach to planning would be to engage with the customer and understand their requirements, we would then document those requirements and output requirements and set a price for the work in a proposal. If our proposal is acceptable we would then engage and undertake the work. During the delivery, regular reports would be produced reflecting progress tracking, and at the close a full report of all tests run and defects found will be produced.
