Autify, a Japanese startup that develops automation solutions, has it It raised $ 10 million To expand the automation platform for testing coded AI software in Group A funding.
Led by the World Innovation Lab, the round was also attended by Archetype Ventures, Salesforce Ventures, Tably, Uncorrelated Ventures and entrepreneur Jonathan Siegel. This brings the total funding launched since its inception in 2019 to $ 13 million. Masaya Kubota, a WiL partner, said about aligning with the startup company’s vision:
“Although Autify started in Japan, the focus of the code-free solution is to advance the automation of software testing not only in Japan, but also in Japan. An excellent overview of the product is backed up by a strong product and the right approach to market. “
Autify has developed an AI-equipped web application that allows users of all technical levels to easily automate software testing scenarios without the need for coding knowledge. The platform has been adopted by many B2C / B2B SaaS companies and organizations around the world, including Unity, DeNA, ZOZO, etc.
The new funding will boost Autify’s efforts to advance global expansion and continue to develop new products, including the launch of Autify for mobile devices. Ryo Chikazawa, founder and CEO of Autify, mentioned the potential of the startup to disrupt the market by saying:
“With 75% of companies worldwide still conducting software development tests manually, Autify expects to disrupt the $ 1.3 trillion global testing market by offering a code-free application for automated testing. Autify has three axes for test automation (coded, with AI, and customer success) to help address challenges that have taken too long in the test market, such as labor shortages, high maintenance costs, and technical difficulty. The best part of all of this is that Autify manages to address these issues at any stage of development without sacrificing product quality. ”
Automation for testing, knowledge of scripting language or complex software has historically been required to pay for the costs of manual testing. However, these solutions result in higher costs and slower development cycles. By facilitating the automation process of software testing, Autify is looking to maximize test frequency, coverage, and profitability by allowing development teams to focus on other areas.
