We are excited to share with you that the SmartBear community has just grown by approximately 800,000 users, as we have just announced the acquisition of Eviware, the creators of soapUI and loadUI, the world's leading testing software for Web Services.
soapUI and loadUI are very complementary to our other functional and load testing tools, further enhancing capabilities to deliver quality throughout the entire quality lifecycle. Not only are the products complementary, but so are our respective companies and users. We are both dedicated to serving our community with easy to use, try and buy tools, we both support the needs of developers and testers, and we are also thrilled to continue supporting the open source community that have become faithful users of soapUI and loadUI.
Let us share with you what our new colleagues had to say in today's news release:
Ole Lensmar, CTO, Eviware, said, “We are thrilled to have found such a great new group of colleagues who are experts in software quality and have a passion for the needs of software developers and testers. This will allow our open source projects to thrive and our team to deliver even better tools to a larger user community.”
Niclas Reimertz, CEO, Eviware, said, “SmartBear’s passion for its community and delivering user-oriented tools focused on improving quality for individuals and teams is a natural fit to extend our tools’ reach to support the needs of developers and testers around the world. We look forward to continuing to serve our users while being part of a very strong, global team.”
For all of our combined customers, it will be business as usual, with no changes in products or disruption in service. soapUI and loadUI customers will still be dealing directly with the new SmartBear business unit in Stockholm Sweden.
We'd like to welcome all of the soapUI and loadUI users to the SmartBear family and look forward to introducing all of our users to one another and the additional resources we'll provide as we continue on our journey to deliver 'Quality Anywhere' - on the desktop, mobile and in the cloud.
