SmartBear's Collaborator Increases Efficiency and Output of High Quality Software for Corovan
Corovan, provider of quality moving and storage services to California businesses since 1948, found themselves relying heavily on individual developers for many of their projects. While the developers’ output was exceptional, isolated islands of information and inconsistencies across coding patterns became a challenge. In addition, company executives needed to know how quickly software updates could be released to keep up with customer desires.
To ensure sustainability efforts across all projects were consistently reviewed, documented, and maintained, Corovan turned to Collaborator, a code review tool that helps development, testing and management teams work together to produce high quality code.
"Collaborator is the best solution for what we need," Sean McNeill, a Software Architect for Corovan, says. "In addition to how easy it is to integrate within our software development lifecycle, the complete set of integration add-ons makes Collaborator all the more versatile."
Now, from one single interface, Corovan can leverage solutions across the design, development, test and deploy phases to review user stories, requirements, and code as well as communicate across the team and deliver quality software.
For a company that employs as many as 10,000 people depending on seasonal demand, software efficiency is crucial.
"We need to make sure we establish and stick to a pattern for consistency in our output," McNeill says. "If someone wants to change a call stack going forward, there has to be a good reason, and we need to understand the impact and how we will implement the change. Using a tool like Collaborator makes it easier to achieve this objective.”
