On April 16th, 2024, Provar celebrates its 10th anniversary, a significant milestone for us as we celebrate a decade of innovation, growth, and success!

From humble beginnings to becoming a leading name in testing and quality assurance, Provar has continually evolved to meet the dynamic needs of businesses worldwide. Here’s a look back at how far we’ve come.

Our Story

We began as a solution to a question: How can we make Salesforce testing intuitive, easy to learn, quick to develop, and maintainable?

We started off as a group of Salesforce partner executives who identified similar concerns with generic testing tools. Our test automation and Salesforce experts knew first-hand that traditional tools started in the middle of the testing journey (the actual build-out of tests) rather than in the beginning with laying the groundwork. There was an immediate and apparent need for organization across the workflow and a single view of the full picture. Additionally, the testing methods themselves were outdated. They relied on methods of building tests around variable data, like tags in the DOM, leaving tests brittle and prone to breaking during Salesforce’s regular releases and updates.

Our founders recognized the need to build a streamlined, reliable solution by working directly with Salesforce’s metadata, a process unique to Provar and intuitively built to last during Salesforce’s updates and new releases. The result? A comprehensive quality hub of testing products offering a user-friendly view of the testing ecosystem in one place, ultra-resilient tests, an intuitive and nearly automatic test building experience, faster time to value, and better release quality.

Innovating with Purpose

Provar’s breakthrough came with our unique approach of working directly with Salesforce’s metadata, ensuring resilience in the face of regular updates and releases. This innovation led to the development of Provar Automation, a test automation solution purpose-built for Salesforce, which is now one of the leading test automation solutions available today. Once making up the bulk of our business, when the solution was simply called “Provar”, this tool has expanded to help users end-to-end with their business needs beyond Salesforce and has taken on the name of Provar Automation to differentiate it from our other testing and quality solutions.

Throughout our journey, we have achieved numerous milestones:

  • Launching Provar Manager, a quality hub that helps users streamline their entire software QA process, from planning and design to test execution and analysis, in one centralized location
  • Introducing Provar Grid, a scalable test automation boost to Provar Automation that is powered by AI and rapidly increases the speed of users’ QA execution times while improving operational efficiency and flexibility
  • Establishing offices in Nashville, USA; London, UK; and Haryana, India and growing our team to over 150 employees
  • Offering a wealth of educational resources through University of Provar, including new and regularly updated free courses and certifications
  • Creating ProvarLabs, an incubation center for innovation, to anticipate and address future testing challenges

I have not only learned a lot over these years about my own domain but there has also been a lot of cross-functional learning which has helped in the overall growth of my career.”

— Jatin Sukhija, Test Architect

“I joined Provar in November 2019 as a Test Consultant and it has been a wonderful experience so far. I am currently working as a Tech Success Architect. In my position, each day presents a new challenge and learning opportunity. All the challenges become opportunities as I work with a bunch of talented people with an amazing passion to work. Provar is a great place to work and strives for a friendly, team-oriented environment.”

“I joined Provar in early 2021, attracted by its high growth, clear value proposition, and great people. I particularly enjoy helping to evolve processes and reporting, and interactions with customers to solve mutual business problems.”

— Richard Oliver, Chief Financial Officer

“I have spent a good time with Provar. The culture of Provar is great. We never feel overloaded with work because of its culture. The employees are amiable and always support each other. I am a part of the TechOps team, which is phenomenal. The way we work together is incredible.”

— Ajay Kushwaha, TechOps Consultant

“I have been with Provar in the Customer Success domain for the last 2 years now. It has been an amazing journey for me with Provar and I am very glad to be a part of this wonderful Provar family. I find myself among a group of great colleagues who share their experiences, encourage me to learn more, and motivate me to bring my ideas to life. Managers, colleagues, and even the founders are open to discussing new ideas and improvements. Trust-based culture, regular communication, and an environment of hiring right and hardworking people have laid the foundation for employee autonomy. This in turn has helped me to act and think independently. I feel more accountable for my deliverables and want to perform at my best. At the end of the day, I can say that Provar’s best assets are its people who make coming to work a great pleasure.”

— Mohit Sachdev, Customer Success Specialist

“Provar is more than a company, it is home. Home because a company like a house has a foundation and walls but home is more; so much more. Home is about how the house furnished and decorated on the inside; the people, the environment and culture that is established makes it home. So, when you walk into the house of Provar, the people/community inside makes it feel like home instead of just a house.”

— Solomon Johnson, People Partner
