COLOGNE, Germany, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- SQS Software Quality Systems AG (AIM: SQS.L, Open Market: ISIN DE0005493514) will, in the future, carry out software and system integration tests for Deutsche Bank.

"We will be providing these testing services as managed services. This proves that the corporate strategy of SQS is on the right path and that the focused activities of the Managed Testing Services area are currently - as planned - the strongest driver of growth for SQS.
