When my co-founder Fitz and I set out to build Reflect five years ago, we had a vision of building a product that makes testing faster, easier, and more efficient for software teams. It’s been an amazing journey.
Today, we’re thrilled to announce that Reflect is joining forces with SmartBear, a respected and well-known leader in products for software development, testing, and developer visibility. This acquisition will accelerate our shared mission to improve the state of testing, and ultimately to shape the future of software development.
What initially attracted us to SmartBear was their customer-centric approach, and commitment to delivering innovative tools that help software teams develop better software, faster. These values align perfectly with our own values at Reflect.
Our commitment to quality
For our team, this acquisition gives us the resources to pursue an aggressive product roadmap for customers in 2024 and beyond. We’re thrilled at the prospect of serving even more testers and developers, and further our mission to improve the state of software quality. In addition, Reflect’s AI capabilities will integrate incredibly well into SmartBear’s existing solutions. There is great synergy between our products, and massive potential to reinvent the developer experience. We’re excited to share more about how Reflect AI will integrate with the SmartBear product suite in the months ahead.
Finally, this acquisition provides long-term stability and support for our customers. As a fast-growing startup, we recognized the benefits of joining forces with an established industry leader like SmartBear. Now, our customers can feel confident that Reflect has the resources and backing to continue growing and innovating for years to come. We’re committed to providing the same great product experience and service that you’ve come to expect from Reflect.
We are so proud of what our team has accomplished and want to thank all of you — our customers — for your incredible support and inspiration over the years. We couldn’t have made it this far without you!
The future is bright for Reflect and SmartBear. Stay tuned as we work together to shape the future of the SDLC.
