Business description: Fanfare is a venture-backed software company dedicated to helping manufacturers of high-technology products dramatically improve quality assurance (QA) processes and productivity. Manufacturers of high-technology products are always looking for ways to shorten product development cycles and adequately test their products. Typically, half of the time required to bring a new high-technology product to market is dedicated to QA activities, and therefore a company’s approach to QA has a direct effect on the success or failure of the entire business. The FanfareSVT™ family of products is the world’s premier software solution designed to help QA organizations within high-tech system manufacturers dramatically accelerate the development of new test cases, expand overall test coverage, and achieve 100% test automation.
