Test management process has many beneficials including shipping high quality products that meet customer needs. To achieve this goal, it’s essential that teams work within a proven process framework. Competition among software suppliers to develop the best products in the shortest amount of time is leading to an increasing need for highly developed test management processes.

Ultimately, with the right focus, effective test management processes will not only increase customer satisfaction, but will lead to smoother and more consistent projects.

To break new ground

Zephyr worked in the testing space for more than 20 years and had the chance to work with a variety of solutions in the market. We noticed that all of those tools were still missing capabilities that would allow Dev/QA teams to align their initiatives and work in sync, so we decided to build it ourselves. A lot of other factors influenced this decision, including the global outsourcing of IT/Dev/QA, increasing adoption of Agile/DevOps methods, and enterprises migrating to the Cloud. Testing had to catch up, and we’re proud to provide them responsive and affordable test management products that can grow and scale with them as their processes evolve.

Why  bank on Zephyr?

Our customers drive our product roadmaps. We constantly solicit feedback from our customers to ensure our products are aligned with how their software development and delivery processes are evolving. We have customer advisory boards and customer editorial boards that have influenced our product offerings and company vision.
