SmartBear Partners with Prianto in Germany

Prianto Distributing SmartBear’s TestComplete, Ready API to Greater DACH Region
Somerville, MA and Munich, Germany — May 21, 2015 —

SmartBear Software, the leader in software quality tools for the connected world, is partnering with Prianto, one of the leading distributors focused on enterprise software in Germany. The company is primarily distributing TestComplete, one of the world’s most recognized automated testing tools and winner of four Dr. Dobb’s Jolt Awards since 2010 as well as Ready API, the first fully integrated, extensible and affordable platform to help development, testing and operations teams build reliable, scalable and secure APIs, to the greater DACH region.
“We are very excited to partner with Prianto to support our growing testing and API business in Germany,” said John McArdle, SmartBear Director of EMEA Channels. “Clients are moving away from expensive and complex test/QA products around the world, moving to SmartBear’s easy-to-use, easy-to-deploy and fast time-to-value applications for testing across desktop, mobile, Web and increasingly, API testing.”
Germany has one of the largest and most vibrant economies in Europe and a very broad channel distribution industry as well. As SmartBear continues to expand its presence in this market, partnering with Prianto is an invaluable method to capitalize on the vast opportunities the indirect sales channel in this region offers.
“SmartBear´s product range is the first of its kind in the Prianto portfolio and we are happy to be offering our partners cutting-edge testing solutions,” said William Geens, Owner and Founder at Prianto GmbH. “Starting out with a few projects here and there in the past, we look forward to actively pushing the SmartBear solutions in the DACH market now that we have signed our promising partnership.”
