SmartBear Software has released Collaborator 9.3 with an “Archive to Zip” feature that eases the burden of audits for regulated industries. Code review contents can now be saved in a non-proprietary format into a zip file, ensuring long term data retention. Collaborator is the only tool available that allows teams to peer review code, user stories and test plans in a transparent, collaborative framework – instantly keeping the entire team up to speed on changes made to the code.

Many companies find that it is difficult to provide clear proof that peer code reviews are happening or have happened within their teams. Often times, organizations that are preparing for an audit don’t have easy access to the data that they need to provide the auditors, whether they are internal or external to the organization. Many auditors time how long it takes the company to pull together all of the necessary files for the audit. With Collaborator 9.3, that changes. The new “Archive to Zip” feature ensures that teams can quickly gather the appropriate review documentation and quickly send it to the auditor. This speedy turn around shows the auditing team that review processes and procedures are taken seriously.

In addition to providing data for immediate auditing needs, many companies are required by government regulations to keep records of peer reviews for as long as their equipment is in service. The “Archive to Zip” feature allows development, testing and management teams to save code review contents in a zip file for long term data retention. Code review contents can be saved into a non-proprietary format, helping customers in regulated industries meet government regulations and internal policy requirements.
