AUSTIN, September 2, 2009 — SmarteSoft, Inc. (www.smartesoft.com), the industry leader in innovative automated software testing solutions, and BlueZone Software (www.bluezonesoftware.com), a leading provider of terminal emulation and legacy integration software, today announced a combined solution that gives enterprises that develop and maintain legacy "green screen" applications on IBM System z and System i access to a game-changing suite of test automation software. BlueZone Software is a Rocket Software (www.rocketsoftware.com) brand.
By including BlueZone in SmarteSoft’s SmartScript and SmartX applications, the firms are extending support of testing applications which help to break down the walls between software development, quality assurance, and business analysis teams for "green screen"-reliant projects.
Jeremy Sharp, Senior Vice-President of Sales at BlueZone Software, said, "This is a very important step for us because it formally integrates two of the top products in their respective fields. We have actually been working with SmarteSoft for several years, but this release represents a new level of cooperation – and a better set of solutions for users in a range of industries."
SmarteSoft’s Director of Strategic Business Development, Art Trevethan, is also thrilled with the deal. "With this alliance SmarteSoft’s Green Screen clientele can now take advantage of such key, regulatory-friendly features as SmarteScript’s automated reporting function. It’s going to make the lives of, for example, QA engineers and Business Analysts in the financial sector much easier."
