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”).

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.”
