“In cases where we see a spike in defects from an experienced developer, SmartBear Collaborator helps us analyze whether we might be rushing development, or perhaps the requirements are nebulous so that the developer is struggling to fulfill them. The issue might also be due to two groups that may not have a good feel for each other’s style and syntax. With Collaborator, we can more easily identify the specific cause.”
– Tim Moore, Technical Director at Everi Games
