VFA Chooses Neotys’ NeoLoad to Performance Test Award Winning Facilities Capital Planning and Management Software

NeoLoad Helps Improve Software Quality, Enhances Testing Effectiveness, Increases Efficiencies before Going “Live”

Boston– February 27, 2012Neotys, a leader in easy-to-use, cost-effective load & performance testing tools for web and mobile applications, today announced that VFA , the leading provider of end-to-end solutions for facilities capital planning and asset management, is using NeoLoad to load test VFA.facility®, its flagship software product, before going “live” into production with customers.

VFA.facility is facilities capital planning and management software that is used to manage more than four billion square feet of real estate assets across the government, education, healthcare, and corporate markets. Customers use VFA.facility to manage condition and sustainability information about facility assets and leverage that information to create capital projects, plans and budgets.

About six months ago, VFA started looking for a load testing solution so that it could standardize the load, scalability and concurrency testing efforts for its VFA.facilty projects, which are delivered within a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) framework. The VFA evaluation group looked at several alternative load testing tools and determined that none of the other products would work because they were too complex, priced too high or fell short with regard to reporting and monitoring.

The evaluation group ultimately chose NeoLoad because of its ease-of-use, reporting and monitoring capabilities, and breadth of technologies that it supports, including Apache, JBoss, Oracle, Linux and Microsoft Windows.

According to Lonnie Colman, senior director, software quality assurance, VFA, “Over five hundred customers around the world rely on VFA.facility, and part of our job within the software quality assurance group is to ensure that our SaaS platform remains available, stable and scales with user load. NeoLoad significantly raises our confidence in the quality of our software, enabling us to release a steady stream of stable, scalable software updates to our customers. We are extremely happy with the tool, and Neotys’ support personnel are responsive and excellent.”
