Test and Monitor | Posted August 10, 2018

Every four seconds, someone around the globe downloads a SmartBear product. At SmartBear, we provide tools for development-, testing-, and operation teams to create great software, faster than ever. An important part of delivering this mission is working with partners who also share our enthusiasm and passion for helping companies deliver higher quality software, faster. Today, I am excited to announce our partnership with Nekst IT – Testing Excellence Company. The partnership makes perfect sense as SmartBear provides products for testing and Nekst IT provides the people and skills to conduct the testing.

“The SmartBear products complement us in helping our customers to deliver better software, together,” said Mark van Haaren, Test Consultant at Nekst IT. “We continuously strive to act in the best interest of our customers. SmartBear tools support our objective by "shifting left" in de development lifecycle and at the same time assuring product quality in subsequent lifecycle stages. We are excited to use TestComplete, CrossBrowserTesting and the ReadyAPI suite to provide advice and suitable solutions to our customers.”
