DUBLIN, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 27, 2012) - QASymphony (www.qasymphony.com), a developer of SaaS-based software testing tools for Quality Assurance, announced it will partner with Cohesion (www.cohesion.com), a Cincinnati-based consulting firm that is a leading technology consulting firm that partners with clients to help them achieve growth through the optimization of their technology investments.

Comprised of some 200 consultants, Cohesion will deploy and recommend QASymphony's new defect capture and bug reporting tool called qTrace, to its many client engagements. Cohesion's Director of Quality Assurance and Testing Services, Joseph Ours, states, "Partnering with qTrace gives Cohesion the ability to meet many challenges we find at our client sites. Not only is qTrace an excellent tool for capturing and automating defect entry, but it's a great way to document exploratory testing sessions in Agile projects. qTrace gives testers the peace of mind to know that their actions are being captured and can be easily communicated to other testers and developers alike without the burdensome overhead of a video capture system, or the huge files a video would create. Lightweight and easy to use, qTrace will improve the efficiency of testing tasks."

Cohesion specializes in the banking and financial services, insurance, technology and retail industries. The firm offers both short and long-term project work and provides assessments, recommendations, program / project management, end-to-end delivery, resources and ongoing support in developing business applications.

"We evaluate a lot of tools on the market and we found qTrace truly unique," said John Owens, CEO, Cohesion. "The tool promises to expedite our Quality Assurance process with a lot more accuracy. Our clients should see the immediate benefit in having their custom business applications ready for prime time by about 20% faster."

qTrace is a defect capture and reporting tool for bug discovery that records all steps, screens, and system information associated with a defect. Early users found it cuts defect capture time by 30-50% and decreases fix time by 10-30%.

With an easy-to-use interface, qTrace provides the functionality to annotate bug fixes and complete reports that can be saved as a PDF or Word file or submitted directly to a bug tracking system. The tool offers out-of-the-box integration with the industry's most popular bug trackers.
