Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Game testing and the API for apps are good.""Ability to use different frameworks."

More Bitbar Pros →

"It has been good so far for API testing on Mac. It is not that hard to learn and use. There is so much support out there, so if anyone wants to start using it, there is enough help.""The scalability of the product is good.""The automation is very fast and you don't need to be overly proficient in coding.""This is a product that is well ahead of its immediate competition in features and functionality.""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.""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 best thing about the solution is that there is a record and playback functionality."

Cons
"Their pricing structure is complicated and can be improved.""Lacking capability options that can be directly integrated."

More Bitbar Cons →

"The price of the solution is a bit high. It's one of the reasons we decided not to continue using the product.""There is not much support offered for the free version, which is something that could be improved.""There could potentially be more reporting within the solution. We need more issue reports, for example.""The free version of the solution is not user friendly at all.""One improvement would be if it could support more programming languages such as JavaScript or Python. Right now, it is only on Groovy, which I think is not a too popular language.""Currently, I'm the only one who can use it because I have a Mac. It is giving a hard time to my team members who are on Linux. My team members are using Linux, and Katalon doesn't support Linux very well. It keeps on crashing. It crashes and shuts down almost every time they save their work, so they are not able to use it. It should have good support for Linux. We don't know what the problem is. If the Katalon team can pick up this issue, it will be very helpful.""It is difficult to identify elements on websites that use Angular or ReactJS because they don't have an option to view source code.""They need to work on documentation to make it more centralized and easier to find what you are looking for."

    Top Answer: 
    Our clients have requested by all types of testing, including mobile, desktop, and API testing and all of those are covered by Katalon. I find that very valuable, very complete.
    Top Answer: 
    I haven't precisely checked the business model behind Katalon, and I would like to understand that as well, because most of our clients ask for licenses and prices, and we don't know. From my… more »
    Top Answer: 
    I've seen that our clients are not truly aware of the power behind Katalon. Many of the clients are now ready for the traditional Selenium, perhaps a more friendly layer like Cucumber or SpecFlow. But… more »
