Comtrade Acquires ISTQB Gold Member Status

Sept 17 2014Comtrade announced it acquired ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) Gold Partner level. ISTQB has created the world’s most successful scheme for certifying software testers.

Comtrade is concurrently working on more than 300 projects and has invested more than 2000 man-years into testing software for more than 900 customers. The company has a long reference list of high-quality software solutions and customers that have trusted Comtrade for over 20 years. ISTQB partnership is the next logical step and a recognition of the company’s efforts and the value it creates for its satisfied customers.

ISTQB has devised and created the world’s most successful scheme for certifying software testers. As of December 2013, ISTQB has issued 336,000 certifications in over 100 countries worldwide. The ISTQB Partner Program is designed for companies that prioritize thorough software testing and are working to ensure that their engineers’ skills comply with international standards and best practices for software testing.

Nikola Šopar, Quality and Information Security Manager, Comtrade:
The trends in IT quality and security are moving steadily in the direction of building and maintaining trust in IT solutions. For years, Comtrade has been a leading provider in this space – in Slovenia as well as abroad. The fact that we achieved this partner level is a formal recognition of our long history in the IT industry and in particular recognizes our commitment to quality and focus on building trust in our products and services. Software testing has become almost a discrete IT industry, which demands many technical and non-technical skills. The ISTQB certificate and Gold Partner level underscore the fact that we actively participate in the creation of new IT guidelines.”
