Turning a Passion into a Business

Kristel created the concept of networked testing: a philosophy that combines flexible teams with innovative practices and reliable systems. This model has now been validated through millions of tests with some of the world’s most demanding engineering teams. Networked testing is built from three core components: People, Methodologies, and Systems.
