QASymphony Unveils 3 Tiers of Software Testing Tools

Scalable Tools for QA People: qTest Project, qTest Pro, and qTest Enterprise, Suit Every Size Development Project and Organization

ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 -- QASymphony (www.qasymphony.com), a leading provider of test management platforms for agile development teams, today formally announced a major new update to its qTest test management platform. This update provides extensive integration capabilities through the formal release of its APIs, support for test automation tools such as Selenium and testNG, and features that help simplify management of large global teams.

Along with new capabilities, QASymphony is also offering the qTest test management solution as three separate editions. qTest Project, Pro, and Enterprise options provide testers with the flexibility they need to gain the benefits across different testing scenarios and Agile strategies. Available in the cloud or installed on-premise, the SaaS tools start as low as $1 per user per month.

While qTest Project is geared for small teams of less than 10 users working on single projects, qTest Pro is for small to mid-size teams looking to upscale and improve test management. qTest Enterprise, as the name implies, is designed to support many users on multiple projects and integrate with other enterprise-level apps.

"We've learned a few things from listening to our 8,000+ users, and the one clear message that stands out is that testers in various size teams want a testing tool tailor-made to fit the way they work. The 'one-size fits all' approach doesn't work," says Vu Lam, QASymphony co-founder. "In short, the qTest platform with various options to choose from enable teams to communicate better and test faster in agile environments."

The qTest platform provides a collaborative work environment for teams to manage requirements, design test cases, plan test execution, track defects, and generate status and quality-metrics reports. With support for both scripted and exploratory testing, qTest is the only platform that lets you add innovative exploratory to manual and automated test management, creating a consolidated solution that accelerates the testing process to keep pace with today's rapid agile software development.

Pricing and Support
Available today, qTest Project ($1/mo.) includes 24x7 email tech support. qTest Pro ($29 per user per month, billed annually) and qTest Enterprise ($49/mo.) additionally include 8x5 online and 8x5 telephone tech support services. Enterprise option includes automation support via TestNG and Selenium services (http://testng.org/doc/selenium.html).

qTest eXplorer, an add-on to qTest that automatically captures a tester's actions in both text steps and screen captures, is offered at $38/mo. Pay-as-you-go options are available.

qTest arrives fully featured with pre-built integration with popular development lifecycle tools and defect tracking systems with modules that include:

  • Test Planning
  • Test case management
  • Defect tracking
  • Built in workflows and collaboration
  • Requirement management
  • Test execution
  • Dashboards and Reports
