Beta Testers Hub (BTH) is an open platform, developed by DevriX, with the main goal to connect startups with over 1,200 beta testers. It is a completely FREE service conceived, published and supported by DevriX as a contribution to the impressive startup community.*
The startup submissions that DevriX receive via the BTH platform are featured in the newsletters to testers. But they turned out to be so original and exciting that we decided to begin sharing some of them on DevriX blog as well, on a regular monthly basis.
Here are the first ten startups in the March edition – fresh, appealing and awaiting early adopters. Since these products and services depend on their users and customers, you may also suggest improvements. Enjoy, test and share!

Homads is a medium-term rental site. It has a beta version up in order to change their business model. The biggest difference between Homads and other rental sites is that it specializes in 30-day rentals or more.
Originally Homads let homeowners list their place and renters could book through the site. Now what they want to do with the beta is allow renters to bid on their lease. Homads filters through long-term vacancies on MLS (multiple listing service) and allows renters to easily negotiate their lease duration and price.
Presently this marketplace reflects a more realistic pricing for a month to month or longer stay. By limiting the listings to at least 30 days or more, we provide a more competitive market. No more overpaying when life’s emergencies hit.
Instructions to testers: The website is available only in its beta version at www.homads.com/beta
Feedback: You may contact the Homads by the on-site chat.

DocSumo is a book-keeping automation software. It captures data from invoices & receipts and feeds that data directly to accounting software such as Quickbooks and Xero. It reduces the time spent on bookkeeping and increases the accuracy of the data.
Using AI, DocSumo eliminates the need for manual setup or templates. It is as simple as uploading or emailing your bills to Google Drive and sending the captured data to Quickbooks with the click of a button.
Docsumo uses self-driving car technology for document data extraction to achieve a very high level of accuracy. It also validates the extracted data, thus eliminating the necessity for human-in-the-loop for most documents. Unlike traditional OCR solutions that work only for fixed layouts (25-30% of total volume), DocSumo works with invoices in any layout with 95% plus accuracy. It solves both the data extraction and validation problems.
Presently, the project is testing and there are no prices announced on the site but as you begin using it some payment will apply after the first 50 documents. Use the chat to clarify how you will be charged.
