Powerful Defect and Bug Tracking Saves Hours during Collaboration

It has been proven that code reviews save not only time and money but can help lighten the workload in the long run. Defects found during code reviews are quicker and easier to find. As you get further along in the development process, defects become increasingly more difficult to find but also more expensive to fix.

Customizable reports allow you to build out reports for only the data you need. Easily track defect density and inspection rate which is often used as a metric to help improve the code review process already in place.
