Nashua, New Hampshire, USA, November 30, 2009 – Kentico Software (http://www.kentico.com), the Web content management system vendor, kept its promise to plant a tree for every bug found in the latest version of Kentico CMS for ASP.NET as well as to fix all reported bugs within 7 days.
Three months earlier, Kentico Software promised to plant a tree for every bug in Kentico CMS 4.1 reported by their clients and to fix all such bugs within 7 business days. Although clients reported only 60 bugs in the product, company employees and management planted almost 100 of them. The tree species and the place for planting them were chosen by the Czech Environmental Partnership Foundation (NGO). Each tree was tagged with a label showing the name of the client who reported the bug.
Every tree was pictured together with the ones who planted it and all these pictures are now available in the Tree Gallery at http://trees.kentico.com. If the clients want to visit their tree, they can find its exact position in the “Trees for Bugs Map": http://trees.kentico.com/treesmap.aspx
"Kentico CMS grew up into a full-featured CMS solution with dozens of built-in modules, so it's very hard to eliminate all the bugs. Therefore we are happy that we minimized the number of bugs with help of our clients and were able to fix them within 7 business days" said Antonín Moravec, Quality Assurance Manager at Kentico “We try to be transparent to our clients, so we publish all found bugs and show how we fixed them so that our clients know they can rely on us and use Kentico CMS for enterprise-class deployments.”
"We hoped that this initiative will be welcomed by our clients and local authorities and it really was so. The nice surprise was how our developers, who personally planted the trees, enjoyed their contribution to the nature" said Petr Passinger, the PR Manager of Kentico.
