"The simplicity of the tool is a plus point, as it does not require one to be from coding background to work on it."
"Business analytics provides real-time data that's something other competing companies lack. It uses statistics and graphs to show the performance of the bots which processes are lagging behind and if you need to give priority to certain tasks."
"WLM & Device Pool, where multiple devices perform the same thing parallel and complete the tasks at the same time. The credential manager for security is one of the most valuable features for storing credentials and providing security between the developer usage and future maintenance where passwords expire every 90 days."
"It is easy to automate SAP by using Cloning and Metabot."
"The robust and flexible nature of the product gives it the capability to automate almost all rule-based processes in each and every ERP application that is currently available in the market."
"Object cloning with an option to enter wildcard selection was very useful when working in a web application that generated dynamic HTML content."
"The code, once developed, is pretty stable."
"The features I most appreciate are the built-in version control system, historical log, audit trail features, and the breadth of RPA action commands included out of the box."
"I like the feature where you can define a model that represents your website and then reuse the components from the model. It makes creating more test cases easy."
"The most valuable feature is that the browser and the API testing is available in a single tool, and I don't have to look at other options."
"It is good for API testing. It is also good for continuous integration testing. You can connect it to Jenkins."
"It is easy for a non-technical person to use and adopt."
"The most important feature is the Jenkins integration; it is pretty straight forward and allows us to run nightly builds."
"The initial setup is pretty straightforward and easy enough to complete."
"The scalability of the product is good."
"One of the features that I like is Object Recognition. It worked very well, and it allowed me to create a dynamic expert based on my requirements."
"I feel the tool has to provide deeper insights for debugging issues, considering both internal and external factors."
"My experience has been that if the person who codes the bot is not very well-trained, then they might create unstable bots. So, it's not the platform. It is just how somebody has coded the bots which can bring lot of instability to them. I recommend that when you are using a coder that the person well-trained and have a good amount of experience already working on bots. They shouldn't be newbie or beginner who comes in to code because that will impact the quality of the code itself."
"Vertical connecting lines would be appropriate within the code, and a collapse/expand feature for code blocks would be ideal."
"Additional features should involve the Cognitive Section where we need more Advance solutions involving ML & AI."
"It would be better if they could extend the support for AA version 11 for a few more years, as most of the companies have tasks completed in AA version 11, and A2019 is much slower compared to AA 11."
"The UI can be improved a little bit to make it easier for beginners to understand."
"The Recorder action in the A2019 Community edition is not supported."
"As a solution, it could have been easier to use than in the current state."
"I've seen that our clients are not truly aware of the power behind Katalon."
"It is difficult to identify elements on websites that use Angular or ReactJS because they don't have an option to view source code."
"It seems to lack a few requirements that a typical customer would want. Compared to other solutions, this product is lacking."
"The price of the solution is a bit high. It's one of the reasons we decided not to continue using the product."
"The free version of the solution is not user friendly at all."
"There is not much support offered for the free version, which is something that could be improved."
"It would be helpful if they can integrate a feature for performance testing."
