Ireland-headquartered testing software firm SmartBear has sealed a deal with distributor QBS to target Europe and UK growth via the latter’s expanding software delivery platform.
Darin Welfare, senior vice president of international sales and channel at SmartBear, said the new channel partnership appealed due to QBS’s “vision, strategy and ability to execute” via the QBS Software platform.
“We’re working with them to meet increased demand for our solutions that support the rapid acceleration of digital transformation and ecommerce initiatives,” Welfare said in the PR announcement.
Dave Stevinson, chief executive of QBS Group, said SmartBear would be at the forefront as a managed publisher in the portfolio.
“There’s massive demand for innovative solutions that solve big challenges around software quality, particularly those around APIs,” Stevinson confirmed.
SmartBear products and solutions range from API lifecycle and collaboration to performance testing, test automation and management, and more — with brands including TestComplete, Swagger, Cucumber, ReadyAPI, Zephyr, Bugsnag, Bitbar, LoadNinja, Capture for Jira, and other tools.
