eureQa, a test automation software-as-a-service (SaaS) start-up with offices in New Jersey and India, has raised $600,000 (around Rs 4 crore) in a seed round from Sashi Reddi, founder and managing partner of Hyderabad-based seed-stage venture capital fund SRI Capital, and Gabriel Investments, an early-stage investment group that supports companies in Philadelphia and surrounding areas.
Founded in 2012 as a division of Tripod Technologies by Badri Nittoor and Bari Chittamuri, eureQa provides an easy-to-use test automation platform that meets the demands of enterprise application developers catering to the mobile, social and cloud-based application space.
The platform is built on top of various open source components that improve on the old generation test automation products that have been in use for over 20 years. The software is delivered as a subscription service and can enable users to automate their software testing without writing code, the company said.
"eureQa offers a compelling value proposition to enterprise application teams to do test automation without being bogged down by having to write code. For a small fee per month, companies can get going in just a few days," Reddi, who is also an investment partner at Gabriel Investments, said in a release on Thursday.
