SmartBear Software, provider of software quality tools used by more than one million developers and testers worldwide, today is making its simple, efficient, award-winning code review technology available in two new solutions for the SoapUI community of over one million users, as well as small companies and development teams. CodeReviewer allows development teams with up to 10 members to code review at no cost. For teams of up to 25 developers, CodeReviewer Pro is available with extensive code review functionality and full technical support at a low cost. Together, both tools join enterprise-ready Collaborator (formerly CodeCollaborator) to make SmartBear a one-stop shop for code review for development organizations of all sizes.
“SmartBear has long been leading the industry with the enterprise-class commercial code review capabilities of Collaborator,” said Mark Hammer, Senior Product Director at SmartBear. “Now, with CodeReviewer, we have tailored our proven code review functionality to the specific needs of small companies and development teams at mid-sized organizations. SmartBear is continuing its commitment to make free and low-cost tools available to the SoapUI community who want to improve collaboration, team performance and code quality.”
A recent study by SmartBear on the industry’s code review practices revealed that more than 70 percent of survey respondents conducted collaborative review in some capacity and those who do review are twice as likely to be highly satisfied with their overall software quality. However, doing code review without a tool can be laborious and inefficient. A separate study with Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO), “Best Kept Secrets of Peer Code Review,” revealed that code review can be conducted within one-fifth of the time with SmartBear code review when compared with more traditional, heavy-weight reviews.
"There are very few software vendors that continue to innovate and include new major functionality in their products as SmartBear does in code review," said Gary Sitzmann, Distinguished Member of Technical Staff at Alcatel-Lucent. "I strongly recommend SmartBear's development products to other companies."
SmartBear’s full product offering allows customers to upgrade when needed. It supports the critical code review practice of organizations of all sizes by focusing on software quality first. CodeReviewer and CodeReviewer Pro are supported by a content-rich website, http://codereviewer.org/ that provides development teams detailed documentation on how to use the tools.
