QualiTest Group Acquires Testing Divisions of Orasi Software and NCC Group
May 24, 2018

QualiTest Group has signed a definitive agreement with Orasi Software, Inc., an Atlanta-based software reseller and professional services company, to acquire its Testing Services Division (“TSD”). At closing, which is subject to customary conditions, QualiTest and Orasi will also enter into a strategic partnership that will allow for more comprehensive offerings for their respective customers.

The addition of Orasi TSD will significantly expand QualiTest’s presence in the US, particularly in the Southeast and Midwest, and bring a strong customer portfolio including major Tier 1 multinational corporations. Testing services customers of the two firms will now have access to more than 3,000 testers across a geographic footprint that spans the globe. Orasi’s existing customers will be able to leverage an enhanced suite of testing services, while QualiTest customers will enjoy the benefits of world-class testing experts and domain experience in areas such as media, retail, finance and utilities.

Orasi supports its customers across the complete software quality lifecycle by providing market-leading automated testing, application performance intelligence, test data management and coverage, and continuous delivery and integration services. Orasi TSD will be incorporated into QualiTest’s U.S. operations. Orasi will continue to operate its remaining support, reseller, implementation and proprietary software businesses.

“Based on QualiTest’s 20-year history of helping assure the highest possible software quality and minimizing risk, we are confident that QualiTest will only enhance and build upon the excellence our clients have come to appreciate from Orasi,” said Nick Kavadellas, President and CEO of Orasi. “The expert testing team, assets and capabilities we’ve developed within Orasi will continue to thrive as part of the world’s largest pure play software testing company. This strategic combination benefits Orasi, QualiTest, our employees, clients and partners around the globe.”

QualiTest Group also signed a definitive agreement to acquire NCC Group SDLC Limited, the software testing business unit of NCC Group plc.

NCC Group’s Software Testing division is a provider of tailored solutions in software testing, quality assurance and test consultancy in the UK, including performance and functional testing, bespoke automation tools and digital transformation assurance services.

The acquisition of NCC Group Software Testing’s blue-chip customer base will expand QualiTest’s presence in the UK and significantly enhance the value proposition for all customers of the combined business through the pooling of each company’s respective knowledge and expertise. NCC Group’s Software Testing customers will have access to a broader suite of services delivered by over 3,000 testing professionals globally, while QualiTest customers will benefit from NCC Group’s domain experience, particularly in financial services and public-sector projects.
