IDERA - Gurock

Gurock Software builds popular software testing tools for QA and development teams. Its TestRail is the number one modern test management tool, used by thousands of companies around the world every day. With its acquisition by IDERA, it joins that firms' family of companies as a stand-alone entity, alongside IDERA, focused on database lifecycle management solutions, and Embarcadero, focused on development tools to accelerate solutions.

"It's important to realize that you as a company founder or CEO go through this process only once or twice in a lifetime, and you should work with someone who has more experience with it, just like your acquirer does. That was specifically critical for us with Corum as we still had to run our day-to-day business."

quotes I think that the one thing that, as we looked at different firms to help represent us, one of the things that really hooked us, and I believe was still a big factor, was the fact that we had a firm who understood the software side of our business, a firm specializing in software, and I think that helped us immensely in the process because we weren't having to go in and educated a firm or broker on how to speak our language to potential buyers. I think that was one of the things that made an easier decision for us to select Corum in that process. quotes
