“We are very excited about this strategic acquisition,” said Founder and CEO of QA Mentor, Inc. Ruslan Desyatnikov. “We have being doing our homework and due diligence for the last 6 months. This acquisition will provide us with ability to offer a test management solution to our current and future clients as part of our QA Audit and Process Improvement Services. Many QA organizations still do not have ability to manage requirements, test cases, execution results, defects, risks and enhancements effectively as they are using old fashioned methods such as Excel and MS word documents or emails. We will offer a comprehensive Test Management Platform which can fit absolutely any budget and improve quality and collaboration not only for the QA Department but the entire IT Organization. Right now the product is going through transformations and improvements and will provide clients a very attractive price point and the ability to purchase subscription-based test management in the cloud or perpetual licenses. We have formed a new business entity, Occygen, LLC, a US based corporation specifically for designing and developing quality assurance automation products which will help QA Mentor offer its own software products through our specialized QA services. We have plans to build another much needed and very interesting product for beta release at the end of the year “.
