A core part of the strategy for QualiTest is to become recognised as a major international player in the independent software testing market.
With the acquisition of TCL not only have they added a great team in the UK with a longstanding reputation in the business, but also through TCL the company now has access to the Indian market. This is a big step on the way to being global, and much more importantly gives us the ability to offer a wider range of services and sourcing, what the CEO Ayal likes to call "right-sourcing."
A word on TCL. I have not been too near the coal face on this transaction (thanks to Ayal and Uri), but I have spent time with Stewart, TCL's founder. TCL under his leadership is a great example of how to build a business with a very positive culture of focusing on the people as its greatest strength. As we combine TCL and QualiTest together I am sure that this culture will stand the merged company in very good stead!
Best of luck to all!!
