These test automation projects have been a great success, and we now are making it available to the testing community. Katalon Studio is a game-changer for testing teams by being flexible, customizable and powerful.”

At KMS Technology, we’re always listening to our customers and trying to address their pain points by creating new technologies that fill voids in the marketplace. We did that with QASymphony and the qTest platform. Katalon Studio is our latest innovation and we’re excited to offer automation teams an easier, faster way to test,” said Vu Lam, CEO of KMS Technology.
