Automated web app testing startup ProdPerfect raises $13M Series A led by Anthos Capital

This morning ProdPerfect, a technology startup focused on web application testing, announced a $13 million Series A led by Anthos Capital.

ProdPerfect, a remote-focused company, closed a $2.6 million Seed round earlier in 2019.

According to Widing, the product “followed some of the lessons of the product analytics industry to build a tool that lets us quantitatively understand how our customer’s live users traverse the customer’s web application.” The company estimates that “many companies are compelled to put around 20% of their engineering budget into staffing a QA engineering department,” spend that it reckons it can help cut.

When TechCrunch last covered ProdPerfect, we called it a “Boston-based startup focused on automating QA testing for web apps.” All of that is still true aside from the location.

But no matter where it’s nexus sits, the company plans on investing heavily in sales and marketing spend (traditional for a Series A-level company looking to quickly expand revenue), and invest in “product development and customer service,” according to Widing.
