Perforce Software today announced that 4sight Financial Software is using Perforce's suite of version management and collaboration tools to develop and deliver financial services applications more rapidly and efficiently.
4sight is a leading provider of software and consultancy to the Securities Finance and Collateral Management markets with customers in 16 countries.
With 40 developers in four offices across the UK, Australia and Canada, 4sight turned to Perforce to overcome challenges common to many global organisations: enabling efficient collaboration across dispersed teams, and the need to speed up release cycles while also improving product quality.
"We evaluated different version management systems, and Perforce came out the clear winner," said Craig Swinney, senior developer at 4sight. "With its advanced collaboration features and ability to support geographically-dispersed development teams, Perforce is the versioning platform we trust to scale with our needs as our company grows."
4sight is using the core Perforce version management engine as well as Swarm, the social coding tool that enables users to share ideas and get feedback 'on the fly.' 4sight also uses Commons, a tool designed to bring the benefits of version management organisation-wide, including to non-technical users.
