MoQuality, Inc., an Atlanta-based startup that provides AI driven mobile testing solutions to help app developers accelerate testing towards a better user experience, said today it closed a $2.5 million seed round.
San Francisco-based Amity Ventures led the seed round and some of the early investors include Cox Enterprises and Techstars. “As development cycles shorten with the adoption of continuous delivery principles, companies will need to utilize automated testing and performance tools powered by artificial intelligence to ensure they ship bug-free applications that customers have come to expect. We are excited to partner with Shauvik, Pushkar, and the MoQuality team as they build the next generation of quality assurance tools and drive the growing tech ecosystem in Atlanta.” said Patrick Yang, General Partner at Amity Ventures. MoQuality will use these funds to scale its engineering team to build their core AI engine.
MoQuality’s Barista is a smart test automation tool that offers a plug and play testing experience. It builds self-healing tests by recording user-scenarios to enable automation across real devices on Android and iOS.
