SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 21, 2016) - Appvance continues to expand its executive team with the announcement today that it has hired Todd Quinn as the vice president of worldwide sales and field operations to further bolster its mission to reinvent enterprise software and application testing with the world's first "DevOps-ready" software Quality Assurance platform.

In his new role, Quinn will lead the sales and field operations team to work with global 5000 companies that are interested in a unified, comprehensive and robust test automation platform for agile-focused DevOps teams balancing development velocity with quality. Appvance is the first unified enterprise application testing platform meeting the needs of both the DevOps and Quality Assurance teams. The seamless, integrated platform allows customers to improve the quality, performance and security of all their applications, up to 10 times faster and at far less cost than old, siloed testing and quality assurance automation tools.

"There is a strong demand and necessity for a product like this on the market, and with Todd's addition to the team, we are in a better position to help our current and future customers bring their solutions to market and see a positive ROI faster," said Appvance CEO Kevin Surace. "We've reinvented enterprise software and application testing, and Todd will be instrumental in building out our partner relationships and increasing customer satisfaction as we continue our mission to enable transformation in DevOps and QA testing for some of the largest, most prestigious companies around the globe."

Quinn brings more than 20 years of experience running and scaling teams, and building partner relationships with him into the new role. Before joining Appvance, he helped increase customer satisfaction and revenues for companies such as McAfee, Dorado Software, Micromuse, and most recently Moogsoft.

"I'm incredibly excited to join the Appvance team, and look forward to continuing to build lasting partnerships with new customers as we grow the unified test platform experience and our ecosystem," said Quinn. "There's a transformation happening in the industry being driven by DevOps, cloud and security initiatives within the enterprise, and we have an opportunity to go after a $15 billion dollar market that has been relatively unchanged and dormant for the past 20 years with the Appvance platform. We're in a unique position to enable those transformations, while helping customers realize a 10-fold value to their existing point products, while minimizing risk and without negatively affecting the quality of those offerings. It's a true game changer for the industry."

Appvance has developed a "write it once" test scripting methodology, allowing test teams to write or record use cases once and test apps the way users encounter them, fully beginning-to-end including the UX in addition to API-level tests. This yields real-world results that are superior to protocol-level testing alone.

Designed specifically for the development of modern applications that leverage DevOps, agile processes, continuous integration, rapid test development methods and time-challenged delivery environments, Appvance eliminates the redundancies of traditionally siloed approaches to enterprise application and software testing, combining best-of-breed functional, performance, load, app penetration, compatibility, database and others.
