Collaborator Empowers Teams to Create a Quality-First Culture

For companies in the automotive industry, reviews of source code and requirements are essential. They enable teams to reduce risk and identify defects as early in the development process as possible, which is especially important in order to comply with functional safety standards like ISO 26262.

Collaborator empowers teams to conduct peer code reviews early and often, to ensure premier quality throughout the entire application lifecycle. Cross-functional teams can remotely and collaboratively improve on deliverables all in one place. Whether you are a product manager writing and reviewing requirements or a software architect building the latest feature, Collaborator helps you and your team stay on the same page.

Design

Make comments and see changes to user stories, requirements, and design documents.

Development

Leverage custom review templates and workflows to take your code reviews to the next level.

Expedite Software Audits By Exporting Peer Review Reports to a Zip File

During an audit, you could get a question about why a specific change in code was made. Do you have enough documentation to follow the digital thread? Collaborator offers a content archiving capability that allows you maintain data continuity and manage server space. Our save to zip feature also enables you to make a hand off to compliance so that you can quickly go back to building that new feature.

 

Improve Your Peer Review Process with Defect Reports and Metrics

How do you show your review process in a tangible way? With Collaborator, custom reporting is a standard, out-of-the-box capability. Whether you're trying to illustrate your review efforts for a compliance audit or just looking to find the gaps in your process, Collaborator's reporting feature can be leveraged to drive insights and document your team's compliance with code and document review standards.
