About us

Esther.ai is a generative Artificial Intelligence (genAI) software testing and debugging SaaS platform that assists teams in the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) of all sizes and skill sets. 

Our platform combines human insights with machine learning and AI-based technologies to reduce testing time, costs and efforts while accelerating software product releases. Esther.ai works with input from the product teams (Requirements) and developers (Source Code), enabling them to hand off the testing processes to Esther.ai. 

With tests that run across multiple browsers & operating systems, Esther.ai designs, creates, rationalizes, creates data, executes, and reports on tests in seconds. This allows teams to focus on delivering bug-free software faster, more efficiently, and cheaper.
