The Inflectra partner team has just completed stop two on our ambitious 2023 itinerary: London! (Also see Inflectra Partner Tour 2023: Mexico City)
We were enthusiastic about getting to the United Kingdom (UK). While we’ve attended conferences in Europe over the last couple of years, we hadn’t visited London since 2019. It was great to be back. The UK represents a sizable percentage of our European market, and the goal is to develop a robust partner network that can help us serve our current and future customers. The trip, and the city, did not disappoint.

We always want to make things easy for our customers, and many of our recent customers have been looking to move to SpiraTest for their test management because they are excited about the new exploratory testing features, easy to use drag-and-drop user interface, integrated requirements management, and the powerful reporting and analytics. They are also concerned that their old legacy test management tool will no longer be supported or developed due to a recent company acquisition (TestRail by IDERA, HPE by Micro Focus, etc.). So to augment our line up of migration tools that we already have for HP ALM, Microsoft Test Manager, Excel, Word and Google Sheets, we have added a new migration tool to streamline switching from TestRail to SpiraTest.Read More

I don't intend to make this a comprehensive review, but just brief look at some of the issues to get us going. Read More
