Startup Story: Costina Mitrofan @Rungutan

NetBears, a Startup Spinner Makeathon Alumni, launches Rungutan, the first Romanian SaaS platform designed to assess a web platform’s traffic load capacity 

Rungutan – the first Romanian API Load Testing SaaS platform, 100% Serverless, dedicated to SMBs – is announcing its official launch on June 4th. This platform offers testing services for a site’s traffic load capacity. The novelty of it lays in the Load Testing platform that provides support for creating workflows that simulate the user experience, so it’s easier to design workflow-oriented test strategies. 

Basically, with Rungutan, it will be possible to test certain segments of a website, defining the test cases based on customers’ behavior, using information from applications such as Google Analytics, Facebook Pixel, Hotjar. 

In addition, with Rungutan, testers can connect with the members of their team and view or edit test cases together, schedule the exact date on which to run tests without their intervention and can simulate workload from over 15 different regions of the world. Those interested can check out an Official Demo of the platform HERE

Regarding the costs for getting access to the platform, the users have 2 options. They can choose either a Monthly or an Annual Subscription depending on the number of credits they need for the scheduled tests, or they can choose the Pay per Test option. This option has been specially designed taking into account the profile of the targeted companies, which may not have a need to do Load Testing consistently. In this way, they have free access to the platform and its functionalities, and they will have to pay only for the tests they run. 

The cost of the subscriptions varies between 20 USD and 99 USD per team member, offering between 50 and 450 available credits, and the cost of a basic test is about 5 USD. More details on the credit calculation algorithm are available HERE

Throughout June, the founders of Rungutan prepared special offers for annual subscriptions, which can be purchased based on a limited edition promo code, available both on the official website and on professional and social networks starting June 4th. Also, all those who want to test the platform can do it for free for 1 month, just by registering at any time on the official website. Throughout this Free Trial, they will have access to the features associated with the Enterprise Subscription and can run tests according to this plan. 

Rungutan is created by NETBEARS, an AWS certified DevOps-as-a-Service company, with more than 3 years of experience in the global market. The inspiration for creating their first product came from their customers’ challenges. Therefore, they aimed at creating a product that significantly simplifies the Load Testing process, being easy to use and re-use and which is not wasting their clients’ time and resources. 

Rungutan was built using the company’s’ own resources, thus its founders truly believe in it and in the added value it can bring to the end customers. At the same time, they are targeting a 150.000 USD 3rd party investment, which will be used to increase the team and to start building the Enterprise version of the platform. 

For IT projects in need of in-depth reports on platform capacity, Rungutan is the fastest Load Tester, 100% Serverless, allowing you to emerge in the performance testing jungle.
