Quality First Software GmbH
Professional test automation for 10 years
Based south of Munich, Quality First Software GmbH (QFS) is a German software
development company focusing on quality assurance. Founded in 2001 by Managing
Director Gregor Schmid, QFS was first in providing a professional tool for test
automation of applications with a Java Swing GUI. End of 2006 version 2 added
support for Eclipse/SWT/RCP testing and since December 2008 version 3 offers
cross-browser web testing support. Besides the GUI technologies, the general
functional range of QF-Test was expanded continuously (Facts & Features).
During its ten year history (celebrated in 2011), QFS
has acquired over 600 customers from more than 50 countries, evenly
distributed over all sectors and company sizes - from small up to HP, IBM,
Audi, EADS as well as academic and public institutions (Customers worldwide, References).
The motto "Quality First" is the heart of our corporate philosophy, which is
based on sustainability, ethical and social values. With our test tool QF-Test
we contribute to the improved software quality of our customers. We also apply
highest quality standards to our own products as well as to the quick,
friendly and competent handling of incoming queries. We are concerned about
the quality of life and work of our employees and their families. QFS is
committed to a range of humanitarian initiatives locally and international and
consequently emphasizes sustainable economics (Regional Business Prize (German
