About us

Who is Original Software?

Clever, game-changing, beloved by our clients – and that’s just our software.

Hi there

Original Software exists to democratize software quality. For too long, organizations large and small all over the world have been hampered by software that doesn’t live up to its potential because of poor testing. Our company was founded to right that wrong, and to help every organization be all it can be. 

Our Guiding Principles 

What makes us, us? 

We discover possibilities

We were first to market with code-free manual and automated testing tools, and the first to create code-free testing tools for IBM i. Our desire to push the boundaries often means that we help our clients do more with their testing than they expected or even thought was possible.

We build relationships for success

We’re nothing without our customers; together we are unstoppable. We score highly on product satisfaction, and also get top marks for service satisfaction. Think of us as a satellite of your own organization, working towards your goals and looking out for your interests. 

We have the confidence to break the mold

We’re not afraid to do something different – whether that’s our marketing campaigns or our product development. If you’re tired of doing things the same way because that’s the way they’ve always been done – we’re here for you.

We combine elegance and power

Testing software can be complex and require extensive coding knowledge. Not ours. We hide all the complexity, giving you powerful testing capabilities wrapped up in an intuitive and easy-to-learn interface. 

We’re only as good as our customers say we are

Hear what they have to say

The amount of change that we have affected over the last twelve months probably exceeds that seen in the last ten-twenty years.

Why work with Original?

What are you looking for?

  • Incredible ROI

    Our solutions pay for themselves before the end of the first project. Everything after that is just icing on the cake.

  • Support for a wide range of technologies

    Whether you run your business on titans like Oracle, IBM i or SAP, web apps like Salesforce, or your own motley crew of HTML and single page web apps, or anything else – you can test it by working with us.

  • A shallow learning curve

    Our customers say they love us because our software is easy to learn. We’ve created tools specifically for non-technical users, and generally speaking any user can be up and running in days, not weeks.

  • To use your own methodology

    You want new tools, not new processes. Our solutions are flexible enough that whether you use Agile, Waterfall, or your own methodology you invented specifically for your organization, we can support you.

  • A best-of-breed ERP

    Working with us can help you slash testing times and effort by a third, or even in half. As a result, you get updates out the door faster, and your organization runs on better software.

    From creating test cases to tracking defects, our solutions can handle it all. We know that a one-stop-shop for testing saves time as well as improving quality.

  • To test EVERYTHING

  • A great customer experience

    We have an industry-leading NPS of 77, and a service satisfaction score of 86%. When you work with us, you get great people as well as great software.
