Austin-based Qase, a platform for managing software quality assurance testing and reporting, has picked up $7.2 million in Series A funding. The investment round was led by Chrome Capital alongside participation from FinSight Ventures and S16VC known for investing in Finverity and RPA Supervisor.
The fresh funds will be used to scale the company’s team and to launch the first Jira-like marketplace for test management tools designed to boost QA team efficiency.
“Testing pipelines have become too complex. We wanted to help QA teams not only facilitate quality gates, but also interpret, aggregate, and collect testing results in one workspace so they can make informed quality decisions. Qase is helping forge a new market segment in the software testing industry that surpassed $45 billion in value in 2022. Qase integrates with Asana, Github, Jira, Trello, and other tools, and with our future marketplace, we’ll be able to address every need that QA teams have,” noted Nikita Fedorov, founder of Qase.
Alexander Savin, co-founder of Chrome Capital commented: “Qase is one of the leaders in emerging and fast-growing TestOps segment. Its solutions are becoming particular important as QA teams, development teams, and organizations are seeking more efficient delivery cycles, greater collaboration, and faster feedback loops through the use of automation. We hope that with Chrome Capital support the company will further strengthen its market position in software testing industry, accelerate its development and grow substantially over the coming years”.
All-in-one QA platform
Founded by Nikita Fedorov in 2019 in Austin, Texas, the Qase platform solves the problem of overloaded developers and QA teams by drastically reducing the amount of testing tools that need to be used simultaneously.
Qase provides DataDog-quality reporting and dashboards for a comprehensive analysis of both manual and automated testing issues and operations. The platform also has a feature to make reports shareable, which ensures that valuable insights into testing health are visible to any stakeholder in the development lifecycle.
The company makes it possible to move higher-quality code to production faster. It communicates testing artifacts across over 30 integrations with ticket trackers, testing frameworks and CI/CD tools including Asana, Github, Jira, Trello, Slack, and other popular software development tools.
Overall, Qase lets anyone in an organisation make data-informed decisions at scale with customisable reports and real-time dashboards.
