Hopefully this question works here... During a meeting, we realized our team didn't have consensus on what a pilot test was vs what a beta test was - or when it occurs, and who it's with. Some online explanations weren't as crystal clear as I think we need.
As we near launch of a mobile app, and have a customer partner to test with - What is the difference between these two steps, and where should they exist in the process. I'm used to Pilot being to find issues, glitches, etc before going to Beta, and Beta is just before production launch, to make sure the solution meets needs. But maybe I've misunderstood.
