  BOSTON, MA, Apr 28 (MARKET WIRE) -- 
uTest(R), the world's largest software testing marketplace, announced
that it has been named to the InformationWeek's Startup 50, a list of the
top 50 business technology start-ups. The winners were selected by
InformationWeek readers and editors.

    A wide range of technology companies -- primarily those focused on
virtualization, the cloud and SaaS -- were nominated for the award.
Through online voting by readers and the analysis of the publication's
editorial staff, the winners were selected based upon the following

--  Innovation, and ability to inject new ideas into business
--  Value, reflected in lower costs, increased sales, and higher
--  Enterprise-readiness, i.e. whether the product/service scales and can
be managed by IT pros

applications tested through a global community of QA professionals, which
has grown to more than 16,000 testers in 153 countries worldwide. uTest
customers report higher application quality, faster time to market and
dramatically reduced testing costs. During Q1 2009, uTest achieved a 300

just reached its one billionth app download. And with stakes this high,
app quality and time-to-market are critical," said Doron Reuveni, uTest
CEO. "uTest enables our customers to fulfill their application testing
needs, and to do it at a fraction of the cost of the alternatives. We are

Editor, InformationWeek. "That said, we believe the InformationWeek
Startup 50 represent innovative solutions to critical business problems
that are worthy of enterprise consideration."
